UK Ministers release letters about Lockerbie deal

Jack Straw changed his mind about excluding the Lockerbie bomber from a proposed prisoner transfer agreement with Libya, letters have shown.The UK’s justice secretary initially agreed anyone connected with the bombing should be excluded. But in a later letter to the Scottish Government he said it was in the UK’s interests the agreement should take a “standard form”.

So, why did Straw changed his mind?

Lybia wants another “agreement:

Libyan minister Mohammed Siala says he is “waiting for some information” about an attempt on Col Gaddafi’s life in return for helping with solving a 25-year-old murder.

Pc Yvonne Fletcher was shot dead while on duty in London in 1984 by a gunman believed to be inside Libya’s Embassy and who later fled to Lybia.
