Lockerbie bomber: Megrahi's lawyer to release dossier 'proving' his innocence

Breaking News

The lawyer acting for the freed Lockerbie bomber is flying to Libya to prepare for the release of a dossier of evidence "proving" his client's innocence.

Tony Kelly, a Scottish solicitor, said that Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al Megrahi, 57, who returned to his homeland ten days ago after being released from prison on compassionate grounds, remains determined to show his guilty verdict was unjust.

The lawyer said he had been unable to discuss this issue with Megrahi after his release because things were "fraught" and the Libyan had been rushing to get a plane to his homeland.

Mr Kelly confirmed that Megrahi had left the relevant legal documents supporting his second appeal in the UK rather than take the evidence back with him to Libya.
