Menendez Presses Ahead With Lockerbie Investigation

Following a meeting yesterday with British Prime Minister David Cameron, Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) said he will continue efforts to investigate the circumstances surrounding the release of Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, who was convicted of organizing the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland.

But nowhere in the statement he released last night did Menendez mention BP’s potential connection to the release of al-Megrahi, a connection that Cameron dismissed yesterday.

Menendez said:

I appreciate Prime Minister Cameron’s willingness to meet with us on this important national security matter. We are in absolute agreement that the convicted terrorist who killed 270 people over Lockerbie should never have been allowed to taste freedom. Our agreement on that matter alone, however, does not mean ‘Case closed.’ It does not fully explain the factors that caused such a mistake in the first place. Only with complete information about the circumstances surrounding al-Megrahi’s release can we get the full understanding that is needed to determine the next steps. In addition to Prime Minister Cameron’s action to release additional information on al-Megrahi’s release, we hope he will reflect upon the request we brought him tonight for his government to launch a full investigation. Next week, I will chair a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on this matter, which could provide us with additional answers. The Prime Minister agreed to ensure that his government cooperates with committee requests in connection to the hearing, which I also appreciate.
