BYE-BYE, GORDO:

Revealed: Libya paid for medical advice that helped Lockerbie bomber's release (Andrew Alderson, Robert Mendick and Damien McElroy, 05 Sep 2009, Daily Telegraph)

The British, Scottish and Libyan governments connived to free Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi on compassionate grounds The Sunday Telegraph can disclose.

Medical evidence that helped Megrahi, 57, to be released was paid for by the Libyan government, which encouraged three doctors to say he had only three months to live.

The life expectancy of Megrahi was crucial because, under Scottish rules, prisoners can be freed on compassionate grounds only if they are considered to have this amount of time, or less, to live.
