The Connor Report

Let us go back to early 1989.

Culprits

Did they make the Connor’s list?

“When Dumfries and Galloway Constabulary began its investigation into the bombing, it believed the PFLP-GC was involved. A report written in 1989 by Supt Pat Connor identified 15 members of the organisation he wanted arrested and questioned, and the then Transport Minister Paul Channon invited selected journalists to an off-the-record briefing to set out the case against Iran and the PFLP-GC, adding that arrests were imminent.

But by the middle of 1989 the investigation had suddenly changed track, reportedly following a phone call between President George H W Bush and Baroness Thatcher in March 1989. The two leaders, it is claimed, were anxious not to antagonize the PFLP-GC’s guardian, Syria – a key strategic power in the Middle East – and decided that Libya, which had taken part in the meetings in Malta, should be the focus of the investigation.”

Let me say it again. By the middle of 1989, the investigation had NOT changed track. Just waiting to see what would happen next…

The Report from Det. Supt. P. Connor — dated June 5 1989 — contains a few puzzling statements. Here is one for you to ponder:

Dalkamoni appears to be responsible for bringing Khreesat to West Germany where he made a number of IED’s for use on the bombing of aircraft. A short time after this Pan Am Flight 103 is destroyed over Lockerbie by a similar bomb. The make up of the bomb which destroyed Pan Am 103 is very similar to that recovered in the Ford  Taurus motor vehicle used by Dalkamoni. Both bombs being of 2 barometric construction and concealed in a Toshiba radio which was thereafter placed in a ‘cardboard carton for a radio’.

You read correctly. In June 89, the investigators “knew” that the ‘IED’ was a barometric one! Not a timer…

REFERENCE

Lockerbie bombing: are these the men who really brought down Pan Am 103?

    The information from Detective Superintendent Patrick O’Connor report of 5th June,1989 is frankly alarming.
    As a proud Scot, I’m reading this and thinking what on earth is going on here ?
    Any criminal investigation requires to focus on the Scottish Police first, individually and collectively there are serious questions to be answered. I think there always have been but the transparency of these formal notes only reinforce and confirm this.

    Clearly, DS O’Connor respected title suggests a leading role with these investigative matters and the investigation as a whole.
    It’s strikingly obvious for DS O’Connor to record and issue such detailed findings within a formal report apparently to the Lord Advocate, there must be evidential information to support same.
    Unless of course DS O’Connor is presenting formal [baseless] reports to hoodwink prosecutorial colleagues.

    Comment:
    Amongst other things, at 5th June 1989, DS O’Conner has stated IED’s recovered from Frankfurt and evidential from Lockerbie both individually held not one but 2 [two] barometric devices.
    This suggests a double cycle device with the first barometric engaging then closing but also triggering the second cycle as a previous recovered device 1985.

    With the date of this report noted 5th June 1989, the fair and reasonable speculation moves to Mebo technician Ulrich Lumpert who has provided affidavit to handing over a circuit board to Swiss Intelligence 22nd June,1989.
    Therefore setting in motion the Mebo/Libya association with the fragment.

    However, keep in mind Allen Feraday UK RARDE four page response to DC Bell on 23rd June,1989 with regard to a device functioning but not fully triggering at the first cycle but subsequent triggering an explosive on the second cycle. Also, these parameters do not necessarily suggest or confirm Frankfurt.

    Something, evidence or information made DC Bell enquire with regard to these matters to Allen Feraday, UK Rarde well before 23rd June 1989 ???

    As a taxpayer, the O’Connor report should be accessible and published asap.
    The report has been read to the public record by an MP with no dissent or complaint, it needs to be publicly available.
    A former Scottish Justice Secretary released PII information with no recourse, there is absolutely no restriction to the release of this report in full.
