A reader recently posted a comment about the BABYGRO. SCOTT writes:
“It’s things like this that convinces me that some, if not all, of the suitcase evidence was planted. (…) The whole thing is a murky swamp and it stinks.”
Could Scott be right? Is it really “unthinkable” that “some, if not all, of the suitcase evidence was planted”? The Toshiba radio, its manual, the Babygro, the SLALOM shirts, the umbrella and so on…
Here is just a factual observation about PK/1978 whose importance was paramount to the case against Megrahi and Libya. (I remind you that some people even dispute the fact that the luggage was a Samsonite… See G. Thomson recent comment.)
Although this blog deals mainly with PT/35(b), it is nevertheless useful to keep in mind that it was discovered in the collar (PI/995) of a grey “Slalom” shirt because the story of this shirt is not free of anomalies.
Dr Hayes examined PK/339 and PK/1973 on May 22 1989. PK/1978 was examined on October 10 1989.
PK/1978 was found in/with an item tagged PK/1359
Now, please take a good look at the description of PK/1978. (as well as PK/1359)
It is no easy to confuse a shirt with a trouser… And, even though I am not a linguist, I would think that “MELTED” would better apply to a “SLALOM” trouser (the kind that people use for skiing in Europe at that time of the year) than to a shirt. What exactly is melted in PK/1978 anyway?
