July 17, 2009.  In the last few weeks there have been significant problems with the Second Appeal, details of which can be seen on Professor Black's blog.

The Lockerbie Second Appeal finally got underway on April 28th, 2009, amidst significant controversy.  Unfortunately Mr. Megrahi is terminally ill with cancer and consideration has been given to allow him to return to Libya under a prisoner exchange programme between the UK and Libya.  For a complete update, I recommend you visit Professor Black's blog.

The Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission, after 3 years of deliberation, announced its conclusions about the Lockerbie case in the Scottish Parliament on June 28, 2007.  Most of us were very pleased to learn that Megrahi had won a second appeal, although we were disappointed with the findings of the Court and how it had arrived at its conclusions.  Dr. Hans Kochler, who represented the United Nations during the Lockerbie trial, has published two articles which reflect the opinions of many of those involved in trying to discover the truth behind the Lockerbie case.  I recommend that you double click the following hyperlinks, particularly those referring to articles by Dr. Kochler.
