On the eve of 21.12.1988 an American civil aircraft Boeing 747-121 was on its way from Frankfurt via London towards New York at flight level 310 (31000 feet), when it suddenly and violently blew up into several fragments. The plane, or rather pieces of it, were scattered on the ground around the Scottish city of Lockerbie, Scotland, one large part of the plane crashed directly onto residential buildings in the city. No aircraft disaster in history has produced the amount of legal wrangling as the bombing of Pan Am flight 103, which killed 259 passengers and crew members and 11 people on the ground. After extensive investigation, two Libyans were accused of the bombings, Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi and Lamin Fhimah. Eventually Megrahi was convicted of murder and sentenced to life imprisonment on 31 January 2001. However, after having rejected his first appeal against conviction in March 2002, his second appeal against conviction will take place in 2009.
This collection provides a in-depth research of the Lockerbie trial, which is famous for its legal struggles and novelties in international law.
