I think it´s strange that Gordon Brown didn´t immediately express what he thought of the release, instead of only telling he was upset about the way the Lockerbie Bomber has been welcomed. I can´t imagin they would leave a diplomatically important decision like this to te Scottish Justice Secretary only. That makes me somewhat suspicious about all of this. It´s probably not just ´´compassionate grounds´´

Oh course. it is tied up with UK Libya oil deal. Just like the Iraq invasion was about oil.

He has been in jail for long. He needs to be let out to live the rest of his guilty filled life in freedom. Guilty feeling would never subside until he goes to the ground, it will and has been, burning coal in his heart.

The Scottish minister for justice would never have made this decision on his own, just as the British government would never have made this decision on its own.

Lets get real . Out of the 270 people that died , 180 where from the Usa , only 52 from the United Kingdom . I bet you anything that if it been the other way around the Lockerbie Bomber would be still in Scotland ... And i agree with Bero that " The Scottish minister for justice would never have made this decision on his own, just as the British government would never have made this decision on its own ". But lets get Real , life goes on and deals are made and What´s New Doc ? . Not much .

It seems to be a case of whether or not you believe in "release on compassionate grounds" for convicted killers. Based on the public outcry, one would assume most people are against it. And then the question of governance comes in; if so many people (in Scotland and other places) are against this release, why aren't the government listening?

I think that the Scottish minister for justice is totally true, since he want imagine that Lockerbie bomber Abdel Basset Al-Megrahi would have this party.
Eventhough Al-Megrahi is free,he is so sick.Maybe this happiness was for a day,but for the rest i am tottaly true to say that his life would be so bad with his disea. and his final days.
