Lockerbie Bomber not Sick?

The people who released him certainly are.

JUSTICE secretary Kenny MacAskill was last night under pressure to
reveal more details
of the medical evidence that led to the release of the
Lockerbie bomber, after it emerged that only one doctor was willing to say
Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi had less than three months to live.
Labour
and Conservative politicians have demanded the Scottish Government publish
details of the doctor's expertise and qualifications, amid suggestions he or she
may not have been a prostate cancer expert.The parties have also raised
questions over whether the doctor was employed by the Libyan government or
Megrahi's legal team, which could have influenced the judgment.

The
evidence provided by the doctor is crucial as compassionate release under Scots
law requires that a prisoner has less than three months to live.Doubts about
Megrahi's life expectancy have already been raised by American relatives of the
270 victims of the bomb that blew up Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie on 21
December, 1988. But last night the Scottish Government said it would not publish
details of the individual who gave the crucial advice.

Compassion for the families of the 270 innocent people who were mudered is still pending.

(...)

Last night a spokesman for the Conservatives said that the Scottish Government
must now identify the doctor.He said: "This is no ordinary case of patient
confidentiality. This is the background to a very important decision so the
normal rules do not apply here. "At the very least, we must know the
qualifications of this doctor, whose opinion was clearly crucial, the only one
to say that Megrahi had a life expectancy of less than three
months

"It appears from the report that he was not a specialist. We
also need to know if he works for the NHS or was employed by the Libyans or
Megrahi." Read the whole article.

What makes this story even more gruesome is it seems to confirm reports that al-Megrahi's release may be tied to an oil deal with the Libyan government.
