The son of Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset al-Megrahi says his family are ready to join the legal battle to clear his name.
The Libyan intelligence officer was convicted in 2001 for killing 270 people in the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 above the Scottish town of Lockerbie in 1988, but suspicions lingered that he was a scapegoat used to cover up the involvement of other Middle Eastern countries.
A posthumous appeal against his controversial conviction was kicked out last year by legal chiefs who said the bid didn't have the support of the al-Megrahi family.

Good news.

I guess the SCCRC can now proceed with another submission if the family are supporting it.

Conversely, I would have thought  a case that the SCCRC previously concluded may have been a miscarriage of justice would always be in the interests of justice regardless of who supports the application.

The Lockerbie saga continues.

Ex Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill's revelations in his book, 'The Lockerbie Bomber', have awakened interest in the case but his statements should taken with a pinch of salt and are not always accurate.

That said it does lift the lid on the political machinations at the time and might yet prove useful to the Police Scotland team currently carrying out a major investigation into allegations made by Justice for Megrahi.

THE SON of Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset al-Megrahi has revealed he’s heading back to Scotland to fight for justice for his dad – while branding Libya a lawless jungle.

Speaking from his home in the Libyan capital of Tripoli, Khalid al-Megrahi said a fresh appeal to clear his dad’s name was imminent.

The eldest son of the Lockerbie bomber claims he is planning to move to Scotland in a bid to clear his father’s name.

Khalid al-Megrahi, 31, insists a fresh court appeal is imminent, following two unsuccessful attempts to clear the only man convicted of Britain’s worst terrorist atrocity.

He said he would be returning to the UK with his family, which includes a son named after his late father.

A particularly nasty and inaccurate article from the Express which in my option shows the level some journalists now stoop to obtain a headline.

SCOTTISH politicians have a duty to find out the truth about the Lockerbie bombing, according to a member of Justice for Megrahi (JfM), the group that believes Abdelbaset al Megrahi, the only man convicted of the atrocity, was innocent.

'The son of the Libyan convicted of the Lockerbie bombing is launching a fresh appeal to clear his father's name and has declared: 'The world will know he is innocent.'
Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi was found guilty in 2001 of planting the bomb which destroyed a Pan-Am jumbo jet over southern Scotland in 1988 – killing 270 people in the worst act of mass murder ever carried out on British soil.
Now his son Ali, backed by his family and the British relatives of those who died in the atrocity, is to ask Scottish authorities to declare his father's conviction a miscarriage of justice.'

Greg Russell reporting on Tam Dalyell's death in 'The National'
Quote:
The Crown Office has been urged to honour the memory of Tam Dalyell by ensuring that a police report into criminal allegations against those involved with the Lockerbie investigation and subsequent trial is given an “objective analysis”.
