Expressen‘s reporter Kassem Hamadé is one of the first foreign journalists to have entered Libya after the uprising against Gaddafi’s regime. Today he had a 40-minute interview with Mustafa Mohamed Abud Al Jeleil, who resigned as Justice Minister on Monday in protest at the regime’s excessive violence against protesters.
Mr Jeliel told Expressen “I have evidence that Gaddafi ordered Lockerbie. To hide his role he did everything in his power to get Megrahi back from Scotland. He [Gaddafi] ordered Megrahi to do it [the bombing].”
Mr Megrahi was given a life sentence for carrying out the bombing but was released on humanitarian grounds in 2009 because he was in the advanced stages of prostate cancer and was thought to have only a few months left to live. Mr Megrahi is according to the latest information still alive in Libya.
Expressen will print the interview in Thursday’s paper.
