Release of Lockerbie bomber who killed 270 is an insult to victims
Dear Ed, I AM saddened by the unconditional release of the Libyan terrorist who killed 270 in the 1988 Lockerbie plane bombing, an insult to the victims of Libyan-sponsored terrorism that has resulted in many deaths and injuries
I AM saddened by the unconditional release of the Libyan terrorist Abdelbasel Ali al-Megrahi who killed 270 in the 1988 Lockerbie plane bombing. I welcome acts of compassion, but feel that unconditional release of this man is another insult to the victims of Libyan-sponsored terrorism that has resulted in many deaths and injuries including children.
Innocent victims in the East End, especially from the Barkantine Estate in Millwall, were caught up in the death and destruction in our community in February, 1996, due to Libyan Semtex supplied to the IRA to commit the atrocity at Canary Wharf close by. This appears to have been forgotten by the Government.
Britain has released al-Megrahi on grounds of ill health and requests from Gaddafi, so that this terrorist would end his final days in his own country.

I appreciate the unconditional act of compassion, but am astonished that the Government cannot even obtain an apology from Libya or compensation for the families who have lost children or were murdered due to Libyan Semtex.
It just appears so unjust that the UK can be so compassionate to terrorists which may actually invite more attacks because of our government's lack of concern for our citizens.
