A UK journalist called Mark Macaskill is trying to discredit al-Megrahi, the alleged Lockerbie bomber.

Mark Macaskill claims that al-Megrahi had a lot of money in a bank account in Switzerland, where he had an office. (Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi had secret £1.8m)

Reportedly, he may have been given the money by Libyan Arab Airlines, his employer, to buy aircraft parts.

Or, the money may have been to finance an attempt to include Libya in the Paris to Dakar rally.

Mark Macaskill, who works for Rupert Murdoch's Sunday Times, "has intimated in his articles that he is party to anonymously sourced information from MI5." (complaint about Sunday Times arms.)

The Guardian (Media Section) noted Mark Macaskill's work and referred to "an outrageous example of Sunday Times bias, and alleged inaccuracy... on October 17 with a story headlined 'City anarchists stockpile arms'".

This story "was based on the evidence of unnamed sources said to have been found through the internet."

Under the headline 'City anarchists stockpile arms' (17/10/99), Mark Macaskill, and Edin Hamzic, stated that an organisation called Reclaim The Streets was "stockpiling illegal weapons including tear gas and stun guns for a planned riot in the City of London on November 30".

City of London Police said there was no evidence or intelligence to support allegations of arms purchases by RTS or that the group had any intention of organising a demonstration in the UK on November 30th. (Reclaim the truth - RTS submit complaint about Sunday Times arms ...)

Reclaim the Streets (RTS) submitted a complaint to the Press Complaints' Commission.

Professor Robert Black (The Lockerbie Case) points out that Macaskill's article on Megrahi contains several errors. (Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi had secret £1.8m)

(Mark Macaskill is not to be confused with Kenny MacAskill, Scotland's Justice Secretary.)


When it comes to issues such as Lockerbie and Iraq, only brainwashed people believe the Sunday Times.

According to George Monbiot, writing about Iraq, "The Times, the Sunday Times and the Daily and Sunday Telegraphs... all appear to have been willing accomplices in the Pentagon's campaign of disinformation." (Cached )
