What follows is the text of a letter sent on 9 February 2013 by Dr Jim Swire to the Scottish Lord Advocate, Frank Mulholland QC:
Dear Lord Advocate,
With the publication almost a year ago of the book 'Megrahi: You are my Jury', it became public knowledge that there is scientific proof that the fragment of circuit board led in evidence at Zeist and known as ‘PT35b’ although mimicking circuit boards owned by Libya, could never have come from any such board.
This circuit board fragment was the crucial link at trial, suggesting that the bomb could have come from Malta, since it represented a fragment from a long running timer.
I am horrified to hear this week that Urs Bonfadelli (Thuring’s production manager, & maker of the MEBO boards), Dr Chris McArdle and Dr Jess Cawley, the three experts most involved in defining the significance of the discrepancy over the metallurgy of ‘PT35b’ have never been approached by the Crown Office or the Dumfries and Galloway police in connection with this devastating discovery during the whole of the time since publication of Mr Ashton’s book.
I must therefore ask that you will immediately launch an inquiry into all matters surrounding ‘PT35b’, its origin, and its discovery inside a Dumfries and Galloway police evidence bag.
It is, Sir, now over 24 years since my daughter Flora was murdered at Lockerbie. As her father I have a right to know who murdered her and why her life was not protected. Such lethargy as this is intolerable.
Adherence to the Zeist verdict, in the face of the immediate criticisms of the UN’s special observer Professor Hans Koechler, and those of Professor Robert Black QC, and many others, along with the SCCRC findings, and now this metallurgical finding, while at the same time refusing to investigate all these apparently well supported allegations would in the event that those allegations are found to be justified, be seen as dereliction of the duty of the Crown Office to deliver timely justice. Effectively it would also amount to protection for the real perpetrators.
[continues with a request for a "credible" investigation]
Dr Jim Swire
There are a number of theories. All hold water except the case against Megrahi.
The Iranian secret services did it to punish the US for its shooting down of an Iranian passenger jet (for which the US serviceman was awarded a medal - why not a nobel peace prize too I wonder). This fails because there is strong evidence the bomb was loaded at Heathrow, not in Malta.
Both the following hold water and considering the marriage of the secret services performed by Rothschild and Rockefeller, the 2 R souls for short, both must be considered as the justification for the psychopaths in the seats of power to murder innocents. Cameron, Sarkozy, Obama and Berlusconi's (NATO) haste to destroy Libya, especially the Tripoli compound and Libyan secret service building where evidence was kept and to eliminate the Gaddafi family provides circumstantial evidence that the destruction of Libya by NATO whose criminal blitzing (more tons of bombs and missiles than dropped on Germany in WWII) was anything but R2P.
The 2 R souls "influenced" secret services cabal did it to destroy evidence and paperwork and eliminate investigators of the CIA involvement in the multi hundred billion dollar p.a. drug trade developed in Afghanistan after the Taliban that eliminated poppy growing was removed from power. Departments of the CIA, MI6, etc. and Bush, Cheney, Blair, Brown, etc. concerned with rescuing their hides from jail and income for themselves and black ops on behalf of banksters and corp'ns, such as 9/11, destabilisation of S. American, African, European, Russian and Chinese gov'ts and satellite countries certainly had reason. That such evidence was on the flight has been documented in many mainstream articles.
The UN rep Bernt Carlsson was on the flight, was pursuing a case against S.A.
Of the 270 people murdered at Lockerbie on 21 December 1988, Assistant Secretary-General of the United Nations and UN Commissioner for Namibia, Bernt Carlsson, was obviously a target. Yet the Lockerbie investigators (CIA, FBI and the Scottish Police) failed to undertake even the most cursory of investigations into Bernt Carlsson's murder.
Commissioner Carlsson was to have taken charge of Namibia on 22 December 1988 immediately after apartheid South Africa had signed an agreement at U.N. headquarters giving up its illegal occupation of the country. In a 29 September 1987 TV interview, Carlsson had warned that he intended to start proceedings against the countries and firms which had been defying U.N. law over many years by stealing billions of pounds-worth of Namibia's natural resources. Among those facing U.N. compensation claims were: the diamond mining firm De Beers; the apartheid regime of South Africa; Rio Tinto Group, owners of the Rössing uranium mine; and, the government of Iran which today still owns 15% of Rössing and, in 1988-89, received large shipments of uranium from Namibia.
Because Bernt Carlsson died at Lockerbie, none of these prosecutions ever took place. Now, more than 21 years after the Lockerbie disaster, it is probably too late to seek compensation from the offending countries and firms. However, the lapse of time cannot allow the murder of a senior U.N. diplomat to go unpunished. Therefore, the U.N. must investigate the targeting of Bernt Carlsson on Pan Am Flight 103.
On 20 May 2012, the so-called "Lockerbie bomber" Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi, who is innocent of the crime, finally succumbed to cancer. The UN must now establish a Commission of Inquiry to investigate the crime of Lockerbie, and authorise the Commission to refer the case to the International Court of Justice for action to be taken against both the individuals and country or countries involved in the targeting of Bernt Carlsson on Pan Am Flight 103

[...] The Crown's case was that Abdelbaset al-Megrahi and Lamin Fhimah, acting together, smuggled the bomb on board a feeder flight from Malta in unaccompanied baggage. The Prosecution insisted they were either both innocent or both guilty however the only evidence linking Fhimah to this scenario depended on the evidence on one witness. This was Majid Giaka, a CIA informant, and by the time Fhimah's counsel, Richard Keen, had finished with him it was clear Giaka was both a liar and a fantasist. I thought the trial was over and though it still dragged on with increasing absurdity I was not surprised when the Crown closed that Keen submitted Fhimah had no case to answer. However, I had not counted on Alastair Campbell, who led the Crown's case, informing the court he was dropping the conspiracy charge i.e. separating al-Megrahi and Fhimah. This was allowed but conspiracy was the basis of the case so I asked a leading figure in our judiciary if they could do that and he said the Law Lords could do what they liked. When I replied that was illogical and unfair he archly responded, "Show me where it says Scots Law must be logical and fair." and an historic miscarriage of justice was inevitable.
Lockerbie: Pik'n' Miss
[Article by Paul Foot in 'Private Eye' magazine, 2 April 1999]
Looming over the prospect of the trial of two Libyan suspects for the Lockerbie bombing are two dreadful questions which haunt the intelligence communities on both sides of the Atlantic.
1. Why has Nelson Mandela, President of South Africa, shown such a lasting and dedicated interest in Lockerbie? True, he was for some of the time head of the Organisation of African Unity. True, he feels he owes the Libyans a debt for their long opposition to apartheid. But on their own these explanations can't explain the enormous amount of time and travelling Mandela has devoted to talks with the Libyan leader Colonel Gaddafi.
2. Why has Gaddafi conceded, and released [for trial] the suspects in what seems like a climbdown? True, he was irritated by UN sanctions; but these hardly explain his uncharacteristic bowing the knee to the hated Americans.
Could the answer to both questions have anything to do with the most enduring mystery about Lockerbie: the warnings received before the bombing of a likely attack on a US airliner in revenge for the shooting down by the US Navy of an Iranian airliner in the Gulf, with the loss of many lives, a few months before Lockerbie?
The most persistent of all the 'warning' stories comes from South Africa. On 21 December 1988, the day of the bombing, the South African Foreign Minister Pik Botha was in London with a large entourage. The rumour was that they had planned to go to the US on Pan Am 103. But at the last moment had switched to a later flight. Had they been warned off?
Could it be that President Mandela has more information about this last-minute switch and that he has passed on the information to Colonel Gaddafi?

Botched 1980 Gaddafi Assassination Kills All Aboard
On June 27, 1980, the terrorist governments of France, Italy and US sent out 7-9 NATO warplanes that, at times of peace, shot down a civilian airliner, "Itavia Flight 870", killing all crew and 77 passengers, including 13 children - the "Ustica Massacre" (“Strage di Ustica” — after a nearby island in the Tyrrhenian Sea).
The motive had been to assassinate the Libyan and international leader, Muammar Qaddafi, who was that night flying in a private plane, escorted by a Libyan fighter-jet, MiG-23. The NATO war-planes had mistaken "Itavia Flight 870" for Muammar Qaddafis air-plane.
Muammar Qaddafi though, was able to be saved by landing on Malta, according to recent discovered Libyan documentation, after a tip-off at the last moment about the plot by someone from within the SISMI, Italy’s secret service. However, NATO shot down the Libyan fighter-jet, MiG-23, that had escorted Qaddafi, murdering thereby the Libyan pilot Ezedin Koal.
The aftermath was a giant cover-up by the Italian, French and American governments. Ominously, it was soon discovered that radar tapes that documented the events of that night were somehow erased or had disappeared. Other records were also missing or suddenly unavailable. Even more chilling, key witnesses began dying in strange circumstances — car accidents, suicides, and even a heart attack.
Then in 2008, the former President of Italy, Francesco Cossiga, stepped forward to confirm that Itavia Flight 870 was downed by French fighter jets. His admission was a bombshell. Shortly afterward, France was served with a claim for damages.
Finally in 2011, the Italian courts would order $127 million in reparations be paid by the Italian government to the families of those who perished.
As with the Libya destruction and the assassination of Gaddafi and members of his family and the Libyan government there was more than one reason for our beloved psychopaths in the seats of power, at the top of the freemason-bilderberg and military-industrial complex (trilateral comm., CFR) mafia and in the secret services to murder innocents.
The WPC Yvonne Fletcher was murdered in an attempt to frame the Libyans. It must be considered as a further reason for the flight 103 bombing that framing Libya was premeditated and added to the justification in the minds of the psychopaths
I think Haseldine and Black should stop beating each other up. People appreciate what each of them bring to the table, a plethora of info.

Let's hope their is an honest resolution to the case. It won't happen while Cameron and his like are in the seats of power and luciferian freemasonry infects the justice systems and the police as well as governments.
