Letter: Lockerbie trial

Sir: The British government, to its credit, guarantees the two Libyans accused of complicity in the Lockerbie bombing justice and a fair trial, without a jury and outside Scotland (report, 24 August).

For years the relatives were told the truth could not be revealed lest it prejudice the jury. With no jury to prejudice it is now the turn of the victims and relatives to be shown the same justice and fairness as the accused.

The Government has the duty to publish without delay the evidence and the truth about the tragedy. If it does not, the agony of the relatives will be compounded by rumours and suspicions.
