On 3 September 2011 we are told that Megrahi has spoken to Reuters about Lockerbie.

The media has translated 'Megrahi's words' into English.

The media claims that Megrahi said: "The west exaggerated my name."

A better translation would be "The west misrepresented me."

The media has turned this into misleading headlines such as Megrahi says his Lockerbie role exaggerated (Reuters)

'Megrahi' says: "I didn't harm anyone. I've never harmed anyone in my life."

At no point does Megrahi say that he played any role in Lockerbie.

He called his trial under Scottish jurisdiction a farce.

"Camp Zeist court is the smallest place on earth that contains the largest number of liars. I suffered from the liars at Camp Zeist court more than you can imagine," he said.

The CIA is keen to cover up its involvement in Lockerbie.

A transcript of the interview is here:

The Megrahi quote was taken out of context.

The first three paragraphs of the interview read as follows:

On the truth of the bombing:
The head of the Lockerbie victims committee, Dr Jim Swire, has visited me in jail. The governor of the jail said this is the first time that the family of victims visited a person who is convicted for the case. He told me that we are not really convinced of your conviction. The facts will become clear one day and hopefully in the near future. In a few months from now, you will see new facts that will be announced. I don't want to speak about that because there are people who are looking after that themselves. They reached their conclusion already. The day before yesterday, Dr Swire sent me an email to tell that there is a new medicine. Poor guy, he is trying to help me. He told me how to get this medicine.

On Camp Zeist:
Camp Zeist Court is the smallest place on earth that contains the largest number of liars. I suffered from the liars at Camp Zeist Court more than you can imagine.

On the Libyan Revolution:
Don't get me into the mess of February, March or April. I'm a simple person - more simple than you can imagine. The West exaggerated my name. Please leave me alone. I only have a few more days, weeks or months. I wish from God that I will see my country united, with no fighting or war. I hope the bloodshed will stop in Libya. I wish all the best for my country.

It's clear that the 'exaggerated my name' phrase, whatever its exact meaning, was not said in the context of the Lockerbie bombing.

The Reuters report juxtaposed the two quotes, which then led to subsequent reports with the two quotes joined together as a single paragraph.

Bad journalism.
