According to Lord Mandelson’s spokesman, Mandelson and Seif Gaddafi did discuss al-Megrahi.
In 2003, Muammer Gaddafi helped deliver the Lockerbie bombing suspects for trial.
Libya is a large oil producer, and has attracted British oil companies.
"Libya is...very much back in the mainstream of international affairs," the British ambassador to Libya, Sir Vincent Fean, said recently.
On 16 August 2009, The Sunday Herald (Lockerbie: after the conspiricies ... the cover up?), reminds us that in June 2007, Tony Blair did a "deal in the desert" with Gaddafi on judicial co-operation between the UK and Libya. This deal covered "prisoner transfer".
Blair's visit coincided with BP signing a £450 million oil contract with Libya.
On 11 August 2009, an anonymous email was sent to an Member of the Scottish Parliament. (the cover up?)
The email appeared to come from inside Scotland's justice department.
The email suggested that senior officials were trying to kill Megrahi's appeal.
Hans Kochler, the UN observer at the Lockerbie trial, suspects Megrahi may have been subjected to "morally outrageous" blackmail to abandon his case.
Reportedly, a Scottish government source admits that the Lockerbie trial may have been slipshod, and even included faked evidence. (the cover up?)
But, the source claimed the trial convicted the right man. (LOL)
Lockerbie verdict a 'travesty' for which we will pay price
