Swiss Crown witness presents controversal report to Lockerbie Trial prosecution

26/04/00 "While MEBO Ag already has more than sufficient proof that the alleged fragment from the MST 13-timer is from a non-functioning PC-board, it is no surprise at all that MEBO has meticulously researched any and all details....in the alleged explosion that allegedly caused the Pan Am 103 tragedy...." Conclusion: "There was NO EXPLOSION inside container AVE 4041 PA on Pan Am 103!"

Edwin Bollier, VC of the Swiss electronics firm, has done it again. With less than a week before trial of start (and possibly with a legal delay coming up of that trial), Bollier has dropped another of his bombs right in the middle of the legal preparations. Today he and the firm MEBO have presented a 16-page report of forensic findings, based on expert analysis of forensic photographs, to the Crown Office with request to investigate the report´s findings. If conclusions of that report are true, they may shatter the allegations of Libyan terrorism in connection with the downing of Pan Am 103.

Short review of National Press Club luncheon

26/04/00 Pan Am 103 Terrorism Trial Briefing at the National Press Club· Washington, DC 20045 helt on Tuesday, April 25, 2000 - 10 a.m Washington Time EST , courtesy of CNSNEWS
With the trial of two Libyans on international terrorism charges set to begin next week in the Netherlands (under Scottish law), families of those who died in the Pan Am 103 bombing over Lockerbie, Scotland believed the Clinton administration is being too friendly with Libya. At issue (in yesterdays meeting was) a secret correspondence between United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan and Libya's Moammar Gadaffi. The group "America's Survival" thinks there may be an effort underway to grant Gadaffi immunity from prosecution in the Pan Am case.

The U.S. and British governments approved the letter, according to America's Survival. The group also says the United Nations and Clinton administration officials have stonewalled the release of the letter, because it represents a "blatant violation of the administration's stated policy of not negotiating with terrorists." The Clinton administration in the past said it would not release the letter because of national security considerations.

George Williams, President of the Victims of Pan Am 103, lost a son in the bombing. He told (on this) conference Tuesday he believes the letter contains "information that would prohibit us from going after Gadaffi. Williams said he understands one of the sentences in the letter reads, "'it is not the intent of this trial to embarrass the Libyan regime.' That is unacceptable to me." "Until this point," Williams continued, "we've had good cooperation from President Clinton and (Secretary of State) Madeleine Albright. But I think because of this letter that cooperation has stopped and I think we're being used. They will not allow to see the letter."

Williams added, "I don't think President Clinton is being forthright with us. Madeleine Albright is not, but she does what she's told by President Clinton. So it's in his and Vice President Al Gore's hands and on their consciences." Stephanie Bernstein who lost her husband in the bombing, told the news conference, the "State Department, the National Security Council, the British government have tried to sell us this trial by using the word justice and this is not justice."

Bernstein explained, "Libyans were involved in negotiating the terms for this trial. They dictated the terms. There has never been a Scottish murder trial let alone a trial of this magnitude that has not been conducted in front of a jury. The trial has been set up in such a way that only those who physically put the bomb are likely to ever be held accountable and I find that very disturbing." Bernstein said the upcoming trial is in large part about "money."

"I think that it demonstrates very clearly that the foreign policy of this country in this particular area is being driven by oil. This is not a surprise. This is not a shock. But I think that is what is happening," said Bernstein. "I think there is tremendous pressure on the part of the oil companies to resume normal relations with Libya. There is lots of money to be gained and I think that is in large measure what has driven us. I don't think it's good business to do business with murderers," Bernstein said.
