Bid to have Lockerbie bomber's medical condition revealed is rejected

By: Mark Aitken, Sunday Mail, Jun 20 2010

A LAST ditch bid to have the Lockerbie bomber's medical condition made public has been rejected.

Labour MSP George Foulkes appealed to the information commissioner after being told Abdebaset al-Megrahi 's welfare would remain a secret
from the public.

Now the decision to withhold the information has been upheld by Kevin Dunion.

Foulkes said: "I am very disappointed that the freedom of information laws within Scotland don't allow the public access to this information.

"It is clear that Megrahi, through his lawyer, has vetoed it.

"This is matter of not just national interest but also international interest.

"There are relatives of Americans who died who are concerned about it."

Abdelbaset al-Megrahi was released from prison 10 months ago on compassionate grounds after being given only three months to live.

As part of the conditions of his release, Megrahi has had to provide East Renfrewshire Council with a regular report on his medical condition.

The council moni tor Megrahi because his family lived in Newton Mearns while he was in jail.

A council spokesman said yesterday: "We have had all the contact we have needed to have with him."

Megrahi, a former Libyan intel l igence agent , was sentenced to life imprisonment in 2001 for blowing up Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie on December 21,1988.

The blast killed 259 people on board the Boeing 747 and 11 on the ground.

Megrahi returned home to Tripoli last August to a hero's welcome.
