The Framing of al-Megrahi

Today's reports that Abdelbaset al-Megrahi is close to death and the row over whether he could or should be returned to prison Scotland all skirt around the most fundamental question.

Was he guilty of causing the Lockerbie bombing in the first place?

An article by Gareth Pierce, published in the London Review of Books two years ago, makes a powerful case that he was not guilty.

Gareth Pierce is behind the times. Private eye has been making the case for years that Al-Megrahi cannot have been guilty, but was stitched-up.
I know, I should get out more.
