This is a bit puzzling… The Facebook page of Ahmed Khalifa Niasse actually includes the PT35(b) post about his role in the arrest of the two Libyan at Dakar Airport in February 1988.
That event was crucial as it allows — according to the official story of the Lockerbie investigation –the link between Libya and MEBO, the Swiss company that produced the MST13 timer.
Who knows? Perhaps, Niasse is willing to discuss the event? I remind you that President Diouf kindly replied to me but said that he had nothing to add to what he wrote in his biography about this event . President Diouf makes it clear that this was a sting operation. [How many Presidents write about an airport arrest in their biography?]
For what is worth, I do not believe that Senegal/Diouf would have approved an operation (obviously “overseen” by French and US intelligence) which involved real/functional weapons, explosive and… timers being carried on regular commercial flights.
It is a fact that Jean Collin –a member of the Diouf cabinet — told the Lockerbie investigators that the MST-13 timer “could not have been used for terrorism purpose.”
Draw your own conclusions.
