v)     Mr Megrahi was convicted on the word of a Maltese shop owner who claimed to have sold him the clothes, then gave a false description of him in 19 separate statements and failed to even recognise him in the courtroom.


I was always of the opinion that Gauci identified Megrahi in court.

If he failed to identify him in court, then why are the appeal court allowed to use the identification evidence to uphold the conviction ?

Apart from the bribe Gauci appeared at the ID Parade with a photo of Megrahi in his pocket.

Their “conviction at all costs” mentality, regardless of the contrary evidence staring them in the face, brooked no opposition and of course erroneous forensic evidence, which still bears the mantle of infallibility, was extremely helpful to the cause.

Quote:
During a speech in America on the 26th anniversary of the Lockerbie bombing, Scotland’s Lord Advocate opined: “During the 26 year-long inquiry not one Crown Office investigator or prosecutor has raised a concern about the evidence in the case.”

So there we have it! No ifs, no buts, no doubts about the “merits” of Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi’s conviction.

Where are they now:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-19966059

Musa Kusa (former foreign intelligence chief)

Musa Kusa

Previously one of the Gaddafi regime's most powerful men, Musa Kusa defected about a month into the uprising and flew to the UK via Tunisia. He now lives in Qatar, one of the chief financiers and backers of the Libyan revolution.

Kusa was the head of the Libyan intelligence services from 1994 to 2009, when he became foreign minister until his defection.

A BBC Panorama investigation alleged that he personally tortured prisoners and was involved in the 1996 Abu Salim prison massacre in which more than 1,200 people died.

He denies the allegations and maintains that he has no knowledge of who was responsible for the Lockerbie bombing.

May Have Information About Lockerbie:

Abdullah al-Sanussi (former intelligence chief)

Abdallah al-Sanussi

Gaddafi's intelligence chief Abdallah al-Sanussi is being held in Tripoli after being deported from Mauritania in September 2012. He fled Libya after last year's uprising and was arrested on his arrival in Nouakchott from Morocco in March 2012, sparking repeated requests to the West African nation from the Libyan government for his return.

In June 2011, the International Criminal Court issued a warrant for his arrest for crimes against humanity alleged to have been carried out in Benghazi, the main base of the Libyan opposition during the revolt.

He has been accused of various human rights abuses, including his alleged role in the 1996 massacre of more than 1,200 inmates at Abu-Salim prison in Tripoli.

France has already sentenced Sanussi to life imprisonment for his involvement in the bombing of a French airliner over Niger in 1989 in which 170 people were killed.

Investigators in the US and UK believe he may have further knowledge about the Pan Am airliner bombing in over Lockerbie in Scotland in 1988 in which 270 people died.

The son of the man convicted of the Lockerbie bombing has joined a Facebook group protesting his father's innocence to help dispel the notion that an application for a posthumous appeal is not backed by his family.

I guess that contradicts the need for the SCCRC to petition the High Court if the family member is pursuing his wrongful conviction

No evidence of the Lockerbie Bombing found then ?
