LONDON (AP) - Scottish lawmakers are demanding that their government publish full details of the medical advice that led to the release of the Lockerbie bomber almost a year ago.
Opposition Labor Party legislators are calling for the prognosis given on Abdel Baset al-Megrahi’s health before he was freed on compassionate grounds.
The decision to release al-Megrahi from a Scottish prison has stirred anger in the United States and prompted U.S. Senators to begin an investigation into the decision.
Al-Megrahi is the only person to have been convicted for the 1988 bombing of a jetliner above the small Scottish town of Lockerbie, which killed 259 people, mostly Americans, on the plane and 11 on the ground.
