Libyan cleared over Lockerbie may be retried under double jeopardy
London, June 14 (ANI): Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi, who was sent back to Libya on compassionate grounds, could still be tired under the United Kingdom's new double jeopardy law.
According to The Scotsman, the Crown Office is examining new evidence to establish whether it is strong enough to invoke the new double-jeopardy law, which allows prosecutors to try someone twice for the same offence.
Al-Amin Khalifa Fhimah, 55, a former station manager for Libyan Arab Airlines, was acquitted of 270 counts of murder in 2001 after the trial at Camp Zeist in the Netherlands.
Victims' families are split on whether he or Megrahi, 59, who was convicted but released in 2009 on compassionate grounds, were behind the terror plot, but all want to see further investigations.
Jean Berkley, 80, from Northumberland, co-ordinator of the UK Families Flight 103 group, who lost her son, Alistair, 29, in the bombing, said: "We've always been told the investigation remains open, but it never occurred to us they would be coming back for Fhimah.
"Anything that sheds any light we would be interested in. (ANI)
