The BBC News website has a lengthy article on what the forthcoming BBC Two programme The Conspiracy Files: Lockerbie has uncovered. It focuses on (1) the failure of the police to pass on to Abdelbaset Megrahi's defence team information, of which the police were aware, to the effect that the Maltese shopkeeper, Tony Gauci, had seen a photograph of Megrahi four days before the identification parade at which he pointed him out as resembling the person who had bought in his shop the clothes that were in the suitcase along with the bomb; and (2) comments by Saif-al-Islam Gaddafi to the effect that in the compensation negotiations the relatives of those killed on board Pan Am 103 had been "greedy" and "materialistic". He is also quoted as saying:
"Yes, we wrote a letter to the Security Council saying we are responsible for the acts of our employees... but it doesn't mean that we did it in fact.
"I admit that we played with words - we had to.
"What can you do? Without writing that letter we would not be able to get rid of sanctions."
