"Lockerbie campaigners have called for a group of international prosecutors to investigate the Scottish government’s handling of complaints about the inquiry into the Lockerbie bombing.
"Pressure group Justice for Megrahi says the International Association of Prosecutors (IAP) should examine Scottish justice minister Kenny MacAskill and Lord Advocate Frank Mulholland’s “objectivity and independence”.
"The group has made eight separate allegations against police and the Crown Office over the investigation that led to the conviction of Abdelbaset al-Megrahi for carrying out the 1988 bombing of Pan Am flight 103.
"It has also submitted a petition to Holyrood’s Justice Committee calling for the case to be reopened, despite Megrahi dropping his appeal just before he was released from prison on compassionate grounds in 2009. He died in May 2012 from prostate cancer.
"The group claims the Crown Office has ordered police to stop their investigation into three of the eight allegations."
