    Should the lockerbie bomber be freed?

    on compassionate grounds,when he showed no compassion to his victims?

    or was he a scapegoat who was not involved?

    should the americans be interfering in our justice system by trying to tell us what to do,when we arent allowed to question their system with regards to gary mackinnon the computer hacker?

    would it be ok to let peter sutcliffe or ian brady out if they had a terminal disease?

    Question answered I reckon.

    better still, keep him locked up and deny him painkillers / medication

    if he is guilty of course but thats a whole new ball game.

    No he shouldn't be freed.........but the justice system in this country is so appallingly bad that nothing surprises me.

    If they've commited cold blooded multiple murders, then they should be sentenced to death. Putting them in prison is protecting them at the end of the day- if they were named and shamed and left out in public, I'm pretty sure they would get their punishment, instead of wasting tax payer's money

    The families of those who died in that atrocity should be shown compassion and not even have to entertain the idea of this man being released early. He has been given a sentence and that sentence should be served.

    No no no no no...

    I dont see why its even an issue - life is life. In jail. Not "life unless you get terminally ill". I dont think many if any people think he should be freed so no ide why this is happening.

    think its called politics

    he dropped his appeal proceedings as he cannot be returned to Libya under a prisoner transfer treaty if any legal proceedings are outstanding.

    i agree this man took all these peoples lives and given the chance i bet each and every one would have chosen to die at home he took that right away from them with no thought for anyone but his cause well see where it got him rot in jail thats even too good for him .these people didnt get chance too say goodbye or put their lives in order.

    Its a massive cover up, of course he should be released, he should never have been inside as he is innocent. of course its all nice and convenient that he gets his release now he's dropped his appeal.

    the first sensible post!

    'hang him', he's not even been found guilty, and it wouldn't exactly be hard for the ASS, nay, USA, to have him deported!

    I'm not convinced he did it BUT the court was - therefore he is guilty unless an appeal proves otherwise.

    As he is "guilty" then he should not be released from prison. This reminds me of Ernest Saunders (ex Guinness boss) who was released on compassionate grounds after developing pre-senile dementia. He since became the only person in the world to make a full recovery from dementia.......

    As for the Americans who gives a stuff what they think - remember their public used to fund the IRA....

    For the positive effects on international relations, release him before Ramadan starts, I am still not convinced that he is truly guilty, If anything a patsy offered up to appease international relations.
    There is nothing to be gained from keeping him in prison now.

    The yanks should keep their noses out, they seem to have forgotten how much they funded the "good ol boys in ireland" to the tune of many millions to keep up the fight with the English.

    magrahis wife and kids lived in britain for a coupla years at the taxpayers expense too so they could be near him.

    His children were put into my sons primary school and armed guards with machine guns roamed the corridoors of the school for 2 years. The authorities never even told parents this was happening-at first when the children came home with stories of men with guns in the corridoors we thought they were making it up!

    musta cost a fortune.

    The mind boggles doesnt it?? No wonder the country is in such dire straits...

    Although there has been no official announcement about his release, the BBC report a plane is on its way from Libya to pick him up........

    But if he appeals and is cleared then more questions will be asked, by dropping the appeal and releasing him they still have there guilty party, and if any questions are asked "look that bloke, he was found guilty"

    That's just a wind up, isn't it?1?

    They are letting him return home.

    I personally don't think he should have been allowed to. Regardless of his cancer or not the numerous victims familys will just see this as an insult. He should have been left to die in jail.

    What about if he's been released so that we can get at the oil reserves in Libya?

    Releasing a dying man isn't a massive price to pay, is it?

    Okay so you think that Libya will do that, based on this :-D His national hero over there (or at least by the reactions on his arrival)

    And about that release ... I actually didn't know that in Scotland you can be released on compassionate grounds, if you have less then 3 months to live (hope I read it correctly:)). So yes, based on this he should have the same right as any other criminal regardless the crime :thumbsup:

    A national hero? Based on what - the stage managed scenes of him returning home?

    If Libya is going to allow BP to get at the oil then I'm sure Gadaffi would like to distract his own people too.

    I actually don't agree with him being released for reasons of oil, but is it really any different from the number of British soldiers who have been killed and maimed in Iraq for their oil?

    Maybe I'm just finding it tough to be constantly surprised at what governments and countries will do for money.
