As the 21st anniversary of the
Lockerbie bombing was marked today, Britain has disclosed that
Abdul Baset Ali al-Megrahi, convicted of downing the Pan Am
flight in 1988, held nearly two million pounds in a Swiss bank
The only man convicted in the 1988 Lockerbie bombing posted his legal defense to the Web on Friday, saying he hopes it will help convince people he had nothing to do with the terrorist attack that killed 270 people.
Newly disclosed letters indicate that Britain`s Middle East minister and other officials advised Scotland`s government that there were no legal obstacles to returning the Pan Am Flight 103 bomber to his native Libya.
