FLASHBACK: Mandela Meets Megrahi (10 June 2002)

Professor Black reminds us on The Lockerbie Case that on this day thirteen years ago, we learned from The Telegraph that Nelson Mandela met with Al Megrahi at Barlinnie Jail in Glasgow.

Mandela & Megrahi

According to the article,

Mr Dalyell, MP for Linlithgow, who visited Al Megrahi in jail three weeks ago said:

“I asked him what he was doing in Malta and he told me in detail how he had been a sanctions buster – getting components for Libyan Arab Airlines because of the sanctions.”

“He was going to Nigeria, Brazil and above all to Ethiopia, having contacts with Boeing, in getting much needed parts for aircraft of Libyan Arab Airlines.”
