SCOTTISH GOVERNMENT'S RELEASE OF MEGRAHI VINDICATED
A Foreign Office minister sent Libyan officials detailed legal advice on how to use Abdelbaset al-Megrahi’s cancer diagnosis to ensure he was released from a Scottish prison on compassionate grounds, documents obtained by the Daily Telegraph show. The Duke of York is also said to have played a behind-the-scenes role in encouraging the terrorist’s release.
The Scottish First Minister said the revelations confirm that while his administration acted according to its public pronouncements on the affair, Tony Blair's Government was behaving duplicitously. “The cables ... show that the former UK Government were playing false on the issue, with a different public position from their private one,” said a statement released by Mr Salmond's office.
This release of WikiLeak material shows finally that the Scottish Government's release of Megrahi was done only on the grounds stated, i.e. that it was for humanitarian reasons only. Those prick Senators in the US, should now apologise to the people of Scotland for casting a slur on it's people and it's Government.
