The regrets of a cancer expert who assessed the only man ever convicted of the 1988 Lockerbie jetliner bombing have intensified the anger felt by victims’ relatives over Scotland’s decision to release the Libyan on compassionate grounds.
Professor Karol Sikora and other experts had said Abdel Baset al-Megrahi probably had only three months to live when he was freed from a Scottish jail last August and allowed to return home to Libya. But one year later, Al-Megrahi, who is being treated for prostate cancer, is still alive.
Seems maybe the guy wasn’t as sick as they thought. So now there’s all sorts of debate over what the doctors said, what the doctors were asked to determine, how accurate the doctor’s assessment was, and which doctors were involved in the decisions.
How about when you put someone into jail to rot you leave them there until they rot?
