Views on Megrahi and Scotland.

"In expressing his full support of the Scottish judicial system, Mr MacAskill implicitly accepted that the decision was correct and that Megrahi was, indeed, guilty of the appalling crime.

"Many in Scotland and beyond are not convinced this is correct...

"The detailed report of the Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission identified no fewer than six grounds on which the Camp Zeist verdict might be unsafe, including US bribery of the principal identification witness, doubts about the source of the timer device...

"I believe it is still within the powers of the Scottish Parliament to order that the SCCRC report be published in full, without any 'redacting'" - MacAskill can still restore respect for Scottish judicial system

"It is not certain that Megrahi had anything to do with the Lockerbie bombing."- Many Americans are in full support of Scotland’s position

"I am deeply concerned that neither the Scottish Government nor the three main opposition parties seems to mind what happens about the questions left unresolved by the abandonment of Megrahi's appeal." - Why as LibDems we oppose our party’s stance on freed Libyan

William Jardine

Why have large numbers of top people in Scotland apparently tried to cover up the links between the Lockerbie Bomb and heroin? (Lockerbie, Dr Hans Kochler, the SCCRC, Oliver Reve... )

Lockerbie is in Dumfries and Galloway which has had strong links to the drugs trade since the 19th century. There are large mansions in Dumfries and Galloway which were built by people linked to 'the China trade'.

William Jardine (1784-1843) was born, near Lochmaben, Dumfriesshire, not so far from Lockerbie. Jardine, together with James Matheson, went into the opium business in China.

Jardine helped to start the First Opium War. Britain was smuggling opium from India into China, and when China tried to stop this, there was war. China was defeated and forced to allow the opium trade.

Some top Scots still seem to have links to people allegedly involved in the drugs trade?

'Drug baron Justin McAlroy was gunned down on his driveway in Glasgow's Cambuslang only six days after wining and dining Labour VIPs Jack McConnell and John Reid at a dinner to raise funds for the party in 2002.' - ( http://www.sundayherald.com/news/heraldnews/display.var.1089961.0.0.php )

'Police have found cannabis resin in the home of the British Defence Secretary, John Reid, but the minister says he has no idea where it came from.' - Sunday Mail 30 April 2006

According to the Sunday Mail (Glasgow, Scotland) 9/4/2005:

'GRIM-FACED Defence Secretary John Reid shared centre stage at his son's wedding yesterday - with a villain wanted by police. Tony Blair's most trusted minister and fugitive Ronnie Campbell - the father of the bride - stood side by side on the steps of Westminster Cathedral.' Reportedly, Campbell's name has been linked to drugs.

Juval Aviv, the owner of Interfor Inc, a private investigation company based in New York, was asked by PanAm to investigate Lockerbie. Aviv made some discoveries about heroin.

According to The Scotsman: ( Http://news.scotsman.com/topics.cfm?tid=184&id=101478200 )

"THE CIA is alleged to have set up a protected drug route from Europe to the United States - called Operation Corea - which allowed Syrian drug dealers to ship heroin to the US using Pan Am flights... The American intelligence officers on Pan Am 103 - Matthew Gannon and Major Charles McKee - had found out about it, and were on their way to Washington to tell their superiors... Aviv was never interviewed by either the Scottish police or the FBI."

Reportedly, a number of important people were warned not to fly on the PanAm 103 flight which came down over Lockerbie.

According to The Scotsman ( Http://news.scotsman.com/topics.cfm?tid=184&id=1014782007 )
"A 23-strong South African delegation, headed by foreign minister, Pik Botha, cancelled a booking on the flight at short notice. There was also a last-minute change of travel plan by the UN Commissioner for Namibia, Bernt Carlsson."

( Http://news.scotsman.com/topics.cfm?tid=184&id=1014702007 )

"Washington knew enough to put up notices in its Moscow embassy warning personnel not to travel on Pan Am flights, to withdraw the South African general staff - Generals Van Tonder and Malan, Rusty Evans and Pik Botha - and advise personnel from the American army of the Rhine not to travel..."

Presumably, the CIA did not warn Major Charles McKee.

The CIA seemed to know approximately when and where PanAm Flight 103 was going to come down.

Tam Dalyell wrote in The Scotsman:
( Http://news.scotsman.com/topics.cfm?tid=184&id=1014702007 )

'Within an hour of Pan Am 103 crashing on Lockerbie, on a point of order, I interrupted House of Commons routine business to ask for a statement. Simultaneously, by helicopter, American personnel were arriving on the scene, and were soon to take over..."

The Scottish business, legal and political establishment is at risk of corruption by criminal godfathers who crave power and influence as much as wealth, a top crime-fighter has warned.

Don't know much about Scottish politics? McKaskill is an SNP minister, treated as a mortal enemy by those in the Labour Party establishment.
