Lockerbie judges deny 'pressure' (Scotland)





The three judges who jailed Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset al-Megrahi in 2001 have denied they were under pressure to secure a conviction.

The denial came in a letter to the New York Times which had published the claim by US professor Dirk Vandewalle.

Meanwhile Megrahi, who still protests his innocence despite dropping his appeal against conviction, has put more material online in a bid to clear his name

On his website, Megrahi concentrates on the crucial evidence of a Maltese shopkeeper who said he sold the Libyan clothes which were later found wrapped around the bomb which destroyed Pan Am Flight 103
