“I regard the Lockerbie verdict against Megrahi as a ‘Grand Monument to Human Stupidity’. Indeed, the written opinion of the Lockerbie judges is a remarkable document that claims an ‘honoured place in the history of British miscarriages of justice.’ If the [SCCRC] Commission accepts the application for a full review, the infamous Zeist verdict doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of surviving.”

Robert Black QC FRSE – Professor Emeritus of Scots Law in the University of Edinburgh and best known as the “Architect of the Lockerbie Trial” — has written : “The Lockerbie trial is the most disgraceful miscarriage of justice in Scotland for 100 years. Every lawyer who has read the judgment says ‘this is nonsense’. It is nonsense.” Obviously, a few people agree. Follow us on Twitter: @INTEL_TODAY
UPDATE (March 20 2019) — On March 13 2019, an application by the Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission in relation to the Lockerbie case was heard by three judges of the High Court of Justiciary in Edinburgh.
The SCCRC sought and was granted a European Investigation Order addressed to the Federal Republic of Germany. [Pr. R. Black — LockerbieCase]
Surprisingly, the MSM have all religiously ignored this extraordinary new development in the 30 years Lockerbie saga.
In my next post, I will discuss this matter and I will try to guess what information the SCCRC is seeking to obtain from the German Authorities. Stay tuned!
END of UPDATE
Most Intel Today readers (88%) believe that the Lockerbie verdict is a spectacular miscarriage of justice.
I understand that a similar poll among Scotland lawyers would be even more devastating.
