CONCERNS GROW OF SENATORS WITH LOCKERBIE BOMBER STILL ALIVE

With new reports that Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset Al-Megrahi is still alive nearly a year after the cancer-stricken terrorist was released on compassionate grounds based on medical evaluation that he had only three months left to live, U.S. Senators Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), Charles E. Schumer (D-NY), Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ), and Bob Menendez (D-NJ) are urging the British government to conduct a full investigation into the Scottish court’s decision to release the convicted terrorist. The Senators expressed concern directly to the British Ambassador to the United States that the Lockerbie bomber, who only served eight years of a life sentence and could now live for another decade, may have been released based on fraudulent medical evidence.

In 2001, Abdelbaset Al-Megrahi was convicted of murder and sentenced to life imprisonment for the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103, which killed 11 on the ground and all 259 on board, including 189 Americans, many of whom were New Yorkers and New Jersey residents.
