Assurance Call On Bomber Transfer.

The BBC is reporting today that the Scottish Government, led by Alex Salmond, is seeking assurance from the UK parliament at Westminster that Al-Megrahi will not be part of any exchange deal agreed between the UK and Libyan government.

Yesterday, reports surfaced in the Financial Times of London, that completion of a deal for BP to expand it's oil exploration program in Libya had been suspended until certain conditions had been agreed. Crucial to the BP agreement, it appears, was the transfer of Megrahi under the prisoner agreement made between former UK prime minister Tony Blair and Libya's Col. Gaddafi.

With Libya's recent and slow re-integration back into the International market, the French have already concluded a massive arms deal, and there are those who wish to exploit Libya's huge oil possibilities. For the US, and more specfically the UK, they hold the ace card in developing these opportunities with Libya further. His name is Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi.

Once again, political and financial imperitives for the UK government are afforded far more importance than the rule of law, justice and truth.
