26-02-2006 10:07I happened to spend a couple of months in the Holiday Inn in Utrecht when the Lockerbie trial happened in Den Haag. Lots of lawyers and witnesses stayed there too and would talk about the case amongst themselves at the bar at night. I have good ears and good kidneys so I followed the trial from the bar. Noone seemed to either believe the Libyan accused were guilty or even that the trial would be allowed to run its course without being abandoned. However, a conviction was secured and Abdel Baset Al Megrahi still rots in Barlinnie prison. A unrelated case involving a coverup at the Scottish Criminal Records Office framing a cop was probably condoned from on high to help preserve the shakey conviction of Al Megrahi. Any conviction involving fingerprint evidence in Scotland should be appealled and ministers must be held accountable for this ongoing coverup.
