Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi, the man convicted of the 1988 Lockerbie plane bombing, is expected to be released on compassionate grounds.
Eight and half years ago he was jailed for life for the murders of 270 people but now he is terminally ill.
Kathleen Flynn, whose son died on the plane, says he showed no mercy as he planted his bomb and should “never qualify for anything compassionate”.
Canadian blogger ‘blastfurnace’ thinks giving Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi a free pass, even on compassionate grounds, is wrong.
And blogger David Vance says he should die in prison. David also mentions the recent release the ‘Great Train Robber’ Ronnie Biggs from prison on “compassionate” grounds and asks if it was another great escape?
But David Lindsay says ‘Everyone knows that he didn’t do it’ and so Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi should be freed.
