Lockerbie witness 'given £2m reward'

This is an article by Marcello Mega which appears in today's Scotland on Sunday newspaper.

It reveals that a source close to the SCCRC board that recommended to send Megrahi's case to appeal in June 2007, has told the paper that a key witness at the original trial was paid $4m by the 'US investigators' as 'compensation'.

To reimburse any witness, especially such a key one, could easily be construed as simply a 'reward' for their testimony, lending it far less credibility.
