    At that time Ghaddafi was desperate for the economic embargoes to be lifted so that the oil infrastructure could be repaired and partially modernised. The whole deal was part of his "rehabilitation" that also involved the WMD destruction.

    As for Al Magrahi, his early release on compassionate grounds preempted his appeal against conviction that was quite likely to suceed and reval some inconvenient information. In actual fact, the US reward to the Maltese shop owner whose evidence provided the main reasons for the conviction would have resulted in the conviction being quashed. Scots law means evidence provided because of a reward cannot be admitted. Detaile forensic examination of the clothing wrapped round the bomb showed later that it could not have been the same as the list given by the storekeeper.

    Fight poverty, oppression, hunger, ignorance, disease and aggression wherever they occur.
