On 17 July 2011, The Sunday Herald reported on apparently fake evidence in the Lockerbie trial.

The Lockerbie Case: New doubts over crucial evidence in Lockerbie .

It is believed that the CIA and Scottish police used a fragment of 'bomb timer' as FAKE evidence in the Lockerbie trial.

According to a police memo, a prosecution expert, Dr John Hayes, misled the judges at the Lockerbie trial.

"During the trial, Dr Thomas Hayes, an expert witness for the prosecution, testified that a fragment allegedly from the bomb’s timer had not been tested for explosive residues.

"However, according to the memo, tests were in fact carried out – and proved negative.

Lockerbie: introduction

"The revelation comes as the Scottish Parliament’s Justice Committee prepares to consider calls for a public inquiry into the conviction in 2001 of Abdelbaset al-Megrahi.

"Campaigners believe he was wrongly convicted of the Lockerbie bombing, and accuse the police and Crown Office of concealing evidence that might have cleared him..."

The trial court heard that Hayes found the bomb timer fragment in May 1989 in the collar of a blast-damaged shirt.

"However, his laboratory notes and the collar’s police evidence label were inexplicably altered, and other official documents gave the date of discovery as January 1990.

"Hayes’s employer, the RARDE, was involved in a string of miscarriages of justice in the 1970s and 1980s.

"In 1990, Hayes and senior colleagues were criticised by former appeal court judge Sir John May in his report on the Maguire Seven case, in which individuals had been charged with handling explosives linked to the IRA.

"Sir John said they knew of evidence pointing to the innocence of the accused yet failed to inform the court.

"After seeing PT/35, Mebo’s owner, Edwin Bollier, said it was from a prototype circuit board that was never part of a functioning timer."

Lockerbie: A satisfactory process but a flawed result

One of the things that amazes me most about Lockerbie is that Megrahi's conviction rested entirely on the testimony of a poverty stricken Maltan clothes merchant who was payed $2 million to testify he sold the shirt wrapping the bomb to Megrahi. This alone would be considered a miscarriage of justice and invalidate a verdict in any non corrupted court.

Aang or others, if I was to make a summary of the cloudy circumstances around the event for my own learning what things should I mention aside from:
-Cash for testimony.
-Heroin smuggling allegations involving Monzer al Kassar, and CIA's Charles McKeee and Matthew Gannon (rip).
-Heroin found at crash site.
-Suspect Mohammed Abu Talb 'buried'.
-Ties with Berlin disco bombing.
-Ties with funding to do 9/11.
-Claims of PFLP-GC involment in carrying out attack.
-Claims of Mossad involvment.
-Planted detonator.
-Claims made by Lester Coleman.
-Supposed links ot Dutroux and Franklin scandal.
-This article.
-The fact the shirt the bomb was wrapped in was a different size to Megrahi and to that of the testimony.

Any other things to consider?

NOTE: The point I mentioned about the shirt size being that of a boy was based on the Al Jazeerea documentary you have previously posted.

Nice find, C.

It's nice to know *some* people can see what's right before them and have the balls to say it out loud.
