The truth died before the investigation -
of the PanAm103 crash, over Lockerbie - on 21 December 1988!



The "Lockerbie Affair" with the MST13 timer fragment (PT35 / PT35/B) is still not closed. The crucial evidence fraud within Police Scotland with an MST-13 timer fragment (PT35/ PT35/B) could however be 100% closed already a long time ago, but the case was deliberately procrastinated under "Operation Sandwood"!

All the individuals, who played a criminal role in "Soft & Hardware" as described in the «Criminal complaint against Police Scotland; Lockerbie Bombing PanAm103, "Operation Sandwood", should be under arrest!

In brief, the crucial criminal facts are hereby revealed:
In the Lockerbie court case (2000/01) in Kamp van Zeist, witnesses, expert Dr Thomas Hayes and Allen Feraday (RARDE) stated under oath that the MST-13 timer fragment (PT35) activated the bomb 'IED' and brought down PanAm103.
In a further testimony, witness Dr Thomas Hayes swore that he had found the MST13 timer fragment (PT35) in a "SLALOM" shirt on 12th May 1989. (Doc. PI/995 incl. photo)

The judges at the Zeist court, were not told the truth, that the MST-13 timer fragment (PT35) was at the first time discovered later by Dr Hayes and Feraday at (RARDE) on 12th January 1990, in a SLALOM shirt!
(Photo evidence with SLALOM shirt, with fake find date, 12 May 1989).

Before the MST-13 timer fragment (PT35) was discovered in the UK/Scotland, on 12th January 1990, FBI expert Tom Thurman, from Washington USA, together with a Swiss official of the 'BUPO', - brought the MST-13 timer fragment (PT35) - according to the certified statement of former MEBO Engineer Ulrich Lumpert - to his laboratory at MEBO Ltd. in Zurich, at the end of 1989, where Engineer Lumpert scratched on the charred fragment, clearly visible, a letter "M" and 3 scratches. The same darkly charred MST-13 timer fragment (PT35), must therefore have been hidden in the SLALOM shirt by someone - before it was discovered!

see video, the MST13 Timer LINK: https://www.facebook.com/edwin.bollier/videos/4019519001460795/

Later, on 27th April 1990, the charred MST-13 timer fragment (PT35) was brought by Police Scotland, to Siemens, in Munich, Germany, ostensibly for an examination. At Siemens, the fragment (PT35) was polished - neatly - and then sawn into two pieces. The larger piece was given the designation (PT35/a, the smaller piece (DP31/a). A test for explosive traces was not carried out!

On 6th June 1990, a green (not charred) duplicate of an MST-13 timer fragment (PT35/b) was brought to FBI expert Tom Thurman by Police Scotland officers, led by SIO Det. Stuart Henderson. At the FBI laboratory in Washington USA, a forensic comparison was made with an MST-13 timer - with green circuit board (K'1) - delivered to Libya.
The comparison with (K'1) was 100% congruent.
The comparative MST-13 timer supplied by Libya was allegedly found by the FBI in Togo and identified as timer (K'1). If they would have compared the original darkly charred MST-13 fragment – and not a duplicate, the result would have been negative. The original darkly charred MST-13 fragment was an early prototype and not manufactured with green circuitboard materials as delivered by the Thüring factory.
The FBI experts also overlooked the fact the original was at this time already cut into two pieces by Siemens. The forensic FBI report does not mention specifically a fragment in two pieces…

See FBI report investigation Report 20/08/1990, No. 262-23 LINK: https://pt35b.files.wordpress.com/.../36-fbi-report-dated...

Only through this crucial fraudulent evidence an indictment against LIBYA and Abdelbaset Al Megrahi was possible and finally lead to a wrongful conviction by the Scottish Court.

As a reminder the after 4 years of investigation into Police Scotland
"Operation SANDWOOD"

was shaken up from MSP, on 6th April, 2018, and urgederd for a conclusion of 'Sandwood'.



Midlothian South, Tweeddale and Lauderdale MSP Christine Grahame on this time called for Holyrood's justice committee to press for progress on Police Scotland's Operation Sandwood Enquiry, which is investigating possible police criminality in the enquiry into the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie in 1988.

°°°°

After a further 7 months, on 21 November 2018, a letter from Ian Livingstone, QPM Chief Constable (Police Scotland) answered the questions to 'MSP'.

The letter was addressed to Mrs Margaret Mitchell MSP, Convenor, Justice Committee Claks, Scottish Parliament Edinburgh.
MEBO Ltd & Edwin Bollier have been financially, millionaire damaged, for evidence fraud about criminal acts by Police Scotland staff, in the "Lockerbie" case, involving an manipulated MST13 timer evidence fragment fraud!

I & MEBO Ltd allege against Livingstone, QPM Chief Constable (Police Scotland) that the letter to the 'MSP' is built on deliberate Lies and criminally concealed acts and even whitewashed by senior Queen's ouncel.

The perfidious final sentence of the letter written from Ian Livingstone QPM:
I have written to the Lord Advocate to inform him Operation Sandwood is complete and that there is no evidence of criminality and therfore no basis to submit a standard prosecution report.

17 April, 2022

The truths must be presented and recalled anew - finally 271 victim families are waiting for the real TRUTH...

Behind the MST13 timer evidence fraud and every lie in the "Lockerbie case / PanAm103", hides the truth ! The "Lockerbie Prosecution" on 14/15 November 1991, against LIBYA was politically motivated.
°°°°°°°°°°°

News parts, announcement on 'Intel Today', 11 April 2022
“Years later, Tom Thurman admitted that he had been instructed by the FBI to lie about the Lockerbie timer to a Grand Jury in order to cover up for the role of the CIA.”

Post-Scriptum
The successful investigation of the ‘Kashmir Princess’ crime and the identification of its culprits was possible because of the recovery of some part of the detonator device. That story was not lost on the CIA and other American spooks.

1st LINK: inteltoday.org/the-bombing-of-the-kashmir-princess-april-11-1955-3

2nd LINK: inteltoday.org/the-washington-post-rewrites-history

In the late 80s, the US Intelligence Community ‘mirculously’ identified twice Libya as the culprit of airliner bombings thanks to the investigation of a tiny part of the detonators: a Swiss timer — known as the MST-13 — in the case of Pan Am 103 (December 21, 1988) and a Taiwanese timer in the UTA 772 bombing (September 19, 1989).

In both cases, these timers were ‘unambiguously’ linked to Libya’s Gaddafi. In both cases, the identification was made by the same FBI investigator — Tom Thurman — who was later discredited for altering official reports.
And by the way, this FBI agent had not scientific qualifications whatsoever. “It is striking to note the similarity of the ‘scientific’ evidence discovered by the FBI’s Tom Thurman in both the Lockerbie and UTA cases.

Of the tens of thousands of pieces of debris collected at each disaster site, one lone piece of printed circuit was found and, miracle of miracles, in each case the fragment bore markings that allowed for positive identification: MEBO in the Lockerbie case and TY in the case of UTA Flight 772.

Despite the common findings of the DCPJ, the DST and the Prefecture of Police crime laboratory, Juge Bruguière chose to believe Thurman, the expert in fabricating evidence.” [French journalist Pierre Péan — “African Manipulations”]
Years later, Thurman admitted that he had been instructed by the FBI to lie about the Lockerbie timer to a Grand Jury in order to cover up for the role of the CIA.

The Lockerbie miscarriage of justice ...
DeepL translator German/EnglishAgain

In the "wrong" Scottish verdict (in the Lockerbie case, PanAm103) against the official Mr. Abdelbaset Al Megrahi & Libya, the "questionable defense" must finally also be taken into focus and responsibility!

Legitimate question: was the defense concept under Duff & Taylor for the Libyan official Abdelbaset Al Megrahi, deliberately constructed so insubstantial???

Read excerpt from Prof Robert Black's "Suitcase": title "Lockerbie evidence "misunderstood": https://lockerbiecase.blogspot.com/2017/01/lockerbie-evidence-misunderstood

°°°
Here, among others, follow from Edwin Bollier /MEBO Ltd, decisive and published evidence, which was not used by Duff & Taylor, !

Contrary to Duff & Taylor's, useless evidence around the false date of the clothes sale, allegedly on December 7, 1988, to Abdelbaset Al Megrah, in Boutique "Mary House" in Malta":
Key-Witness 595, Tony Gauci told Edwin Bollier on January 25, 2008, in Malta that the 2 pajamas, with label "John Mallia", were the last "two" pajamas he had sold in his store to a Libyan. The other day, November 24, 1988, Gauci ordered by phone from the company "John Mallia" an additional 8 pieces of the same pajamas (Witness of Gauci say this also under Oath in court 2000, in Kamp van Zeist).

The 8 pajamas were delivered to Gauci's Mary's House in Sliema Malta on 11/25/1988 with invoice/delivery bill dated 11/25/1988. (Court Prod. no. 477-1).

The day after Wednesday, 7 December, the 8 December 1988, was an official holiday (Immaculate Conception Day) and the "John Mallia" company was closed. But the day after November 23, November 24, 1988, was not an official holiday, the company "John Mallia" was opened.

So it is clear the clothbuyer was on 23 November 1988, in Gauci's boutique 'Maryhouse'; Abdelbaset Al Megrahi, was 100% not in Malta on 23 November 1088!
Justice for Al-Megrahi, he had nothing to do with the "Pan Am 103" tragedy in Lockerbie !...
°°°

Defense:
Representing Megrahi were solicitor Alistair Duff and barristers William Taylor QC, David Burns QC and John Beckett. Fhimah was represented by solicitors Eddie McKechnie and Paul Phillips, barristers Richard Keen QC, Jack Davidson QC and Murdo Macleod. Both defendants also had access to Libyan defense counsel Kamel Maghur.

Pre-trial hearings
Five pre-trial hearings were held: The defendants were inculcated to waive their right for testimonies (Replica & Publik) at two trial hearings in the High Court in Edinburgh; they attended two hearings in the Zeist camp, which were held privately; and on December 7, 1999, they appeared publicly for the first time in the Scottish court in the Netherlands. At that public hearing, the presiding judge, Lord Sutherland, ruled that:

the two Libyans should be charged with both conspiracy and murder;
they could be labeled as members of their country's intelligence services; and, the start of the full trial was delayed by three months (from February 2, 2000).

Case
The case against the two defendants was based on three main points:
That the MST13 timer used, which allegedly activated the bomb ("IED" imbrovised explosive devices), came from a batch sold to Libya by a Swiss company, Mebo AG;

a former colleague in the Libyan Airlines office in Malta, Abdulmajid Gialka, who was to testify that he saw the bomb being built, or at least loaded onto the aircraft in Frankfurt;

that the clothing identified in the bomb case had been purchased by defendant Megrahi in a store in Malta on December 7, 1988.

According to Edwin Bollier & MEBO Ltd, each of these points was co-disputed by the defense.

Edwin Bollier, the co-founder of the Swiss manufacturer of the timer, testified that he had sold similar timers to East Germany and admitted to having connections with a number of intelligence agencies, including both the Libyans and the CIA. (E.B. testimony supplied to CIA not true!)

Gialka was living in the U.S. under the Witness Protection Program at the time of the trial, had ties to the CIA prior to 1988, and was expected to collect up to $4 million in reward money upon conviction.

Tony Gauci, the Maltese store owner, could not positively identify Megrahi in nineteen separate pretrial statements to police. In court, Gauci was asked five times if he recognized anyone in the courtroom without answering.

Only when the prosecutor pointed out Megrahi did Gauci say "he resembled him." On a previous occasion, Gauci had identified Abu Talb (who the defense claimed was the real bomber) and said Talb was "very similar" to the client. Gauci's police statements identified the customer as over 6 feet tall and over 50 years old; Megrahi is 5 feet 8 inches tall and was 36 in late 1988.

The clothing purchase occurred on either November 23 or December 7, 1988; Megrahi was not in Malta until December 7. Gauci recalled that the customer had also purchased an umbrella because of the rain. The defense argued, based on meteorological records, that it had rained all day on November 23, but only briefly or not at all on December 7.

In its closing arguments, the prosecution emphasized that Megrahi could not have planted the bomb without Fhimah's help - both defendants were equally guilty and must stand or fall together.
Importantly, Fhimah, Lamin Khalifa, was acquitted...

Some general statistics:
there were 84 court days (between May 3, 2000 and January 31, 2001)
230 witnesses testified the Crown listed 1160 witnesses and named 227
the defense listed 121 and named 3Witnesses came from the United Kingdom, the United States, Libya, Japan, Germany, Malta, Switzerland, Slovenia, Sweden, the Czech Republic, India, France and Singapore.
the languages translated in court were Arabic, French, Czech, Japanese, Swedish, Maltese and German

there were 1867 documentary reproductions and 621 label productions (or exhibits - the largest of which was an airplane reconstruction)
the aircraft reconstruction was the only one that was not brought to court (it remained in the premises of the Air Accident Investigations Branch at Farnborough in England)

there were 10,232 pages of court transcripts containing more than three million words the cost of the trial itself was estimated at £60 million the running costs of the appeal were estimated at around £2 million per month, which the Scottish Executive estimated gave a total bill of £75 million 20% of the running costs were borne by the Scottish Ministry of Justice 80% of the running costs, together with capital expenditure, were met by the UK government the U.S. government made a significant contribution to the additional costs of running the trial in the Netherlands

The construction of the special court and prison complex at Camp Zeist cost £12 million Original estimates for the entire trial were £150 million (or twice the actual expenditure).

In August 2003, Libya paid compensation of £4.5 million ($8 million) to each family of the 270 victims: a total of £1.23 billion ($2.16 billion) in Contingent costs of 1.4 million pounds ($2.5 million) were deducted from each family's compensation payment and retained by the U.S. law firms involved: a total of 385 million pounds ($675 million) in legal fees

Who is "POTENT" enough to be protected in the fraud affair "Lockerbie/PanAm103" - before and sustainably ?
Again:
Who is "POTENT" enough to be protected in the fraud affair "Lockerbie/PanAm103"- before and sustainably ???



For your information > read the latest UPDATE from 'Intel today' >
Excerpt: UPDATE (January 17 2022) — The Lockerbie Solution — Just take a look at this timeline. And think!


May 17 1985 — The Fuller memorandum — CIA officer Graham Fuller suggests that it would be wise to use Libya as a geopolitical punching bag (Nothing to fear and nothing to lose) while playing nice with the Iranian Ayatollah. “The study was instrumental in persuading some top-ranking Reagan Administration policy makers to begin considering covert contacts with Iranian leaders. It eventually led to the covert sale of United States weapons to Tehran in what became the Iran-contra affair.” [New York Time, 15 February 1988]

January 7 1986 — President Ronald Reagan announced economic sanctions against Libya. Despite major diplomatic efforts, all European countries refuse to join the US as they see no evidence of Libya’s involvement.

January 17 1986 — Reagan Approves Covert Arms Sales to Iran . Under the Presidential Finding — which CIA director William Casey and CIA General Counsel Stanley Sporkin helped Colonel Oliver North put together — the U.S. Army sold the TOW missiles to the CIA, who in turn passed them on to general Secord, who then delivered them to Iranian agents.The Reagan administration then used the proceeds of the arms sale to fund terrorists in Central America.

April 14 1986 — Ronald Reagan ordered a series of bombings directed against Libya under “Operation El Dorado Canyon. No evidence. All European countries opposed the operation, except Lady Thatcher..

July 23 1986 — The campaign of disinformation about Libyan terrorism reaches new high… [New York Times — August 11 1986] The MST-13 Timer appears…

October 2 1986 — Bob Woodward (Washington Post) published an extraordinary story: “Gadhafi Target of Secret U.S. Deception Plan”.

November 3 1986 — The Lebanese magazine Ash-Shiraa exposed the Iran–Contra scandal. Senior administration officials secretly facilitated the sale of arms to Iran, which was the subject of an arms embargo.

December 21 1988 — N739PA — the Boeing 747 aircraft operating the transatlantic leg of Pan Am Flight 103 — broke up in flight over Scotland. All 243 passengers and 16 crew died as well as 11 residents of Lockerbie.

March 1989 — The BBC (Farsi) began to publish Ayatollah Ali Montazeri’s letters condemning the post-war wave of executions. This event prompts the end of his political career.

March 1989 — The Lockerbie investigation came to a halt following a phone call between George H. W. Bush and Margaret Thatcher.

June 3rd 1989 — Ruhollah Khomeini dies. Ali Khamenei becomes the new Supreme Leader of Iran.

August 3rd 1989. — Hashemi Rafsanjani is elected Iran’s president. Rafsanjani was the central Iranian figure in the Iran-Contra scandal.

Late August 1989 — German police discovered the existence of a print-out at Frankfurt airport that indicated that the ‘primary suitcase’ had begun its journey in Malta.

By September 1989, blaming Iran for Lockerbie would simply not serve the geopolitical interests of the US and UK anymore. But as Marcel Pagnol wrote: “A wise man does not look for the culprits of a crime. A wise man chooses the right culprits.”

September 1989 — The Lockerbie investigation goes straight to Malta and, from now on, Libya is the new and only focus.

September 1989 — At the US–Iran Claims Tribunal at The Hague, the US agreed to pay Iran $567,000,000. President Bush announced the payment on November 7 1989, remarking that he hoped, “Iran would use what influence it has” to release the US hostages held in Lebanon.

September 1989 – A very mysterious fragment of a circuit timer — known as PT/35(b) — appeared in highly suspicious circumstances. This fragment will become the key piece of evidence linking Pan Am 103 to Libya.

September 1 1989 — The Lockerbie investigators suddenly noticed that an item of blast damaged clothing – a pair of dark brown checked trousers manufactured by the ‘Yorkie Clothing’ company in Malta — had a number (1705) stamped on a pocket lining. This number was enough to identify the store who had made the order, and therefore a individual who might identify the buyer.

October 1989 — Although the investigators officially linked Megrahi to the Lockerbie disaster in the Autumn of 1990, a CIA Cable dated October 17 1989 already connects Megrahi to Lockerbie!

I have long believe that the ‘Lockerbie evidence’ [clothes from Malta, PT/35(b), and the infamous Toshiba radio] was planted to incriminate Libya.

A few days ago, I received a few documents which were not disclosed to the defense. I believe these documents prove that the evidence has been fabricated.

Stay tuned! END of UPDATE

18 January, 2022

Edwin Bollier & MEBO Ltd sent a personal letter to Her Majesty the Queen, referring to a recent report in the «Daily Express» that Her Majesty has expressed her regret over two major tragedies.

LINK: https://www.express.co.uk/.../queen-elizabeth-ii-news...

In the case of the PanAm 103 air disaster, it seems that she regretted the decision not to have visited the Lockerbie area immediately after the crash.
The letter informs Her Majesty the Queen that after 33 years the truth still has not come to light and the obstruction of justice is still going on.
Therefore MEBO filed in December 2020, through their lawyer, a «Criminal complaint against Police Scotland.» 10 accusations conclude that the investigation was not correctly done, as crucial evidence was suppressed by officials and experts.

New evidence about the background of a faked timer fragment MST-13 can not any longer be ignored. The Judges and the Lord Advocate were misled and unfortunately, it resulted in a wrong verdict against Libya and Abdelbasset al-Megrahi.
MEBO suffers from severe financial and reputational damages. Sadly, Police Scotland and the Crown Office not only appear to be delaying any action to date rather than looking into MEBO’s concerns and the concern of others.
The letter expressed the hope that the truth will prevail and justice to be restored in the end.

3 January, 2022


Enough is enough! Police Scotland need to stop the «delay tactics» and must provide answers to the 10 accusations in the «Criminal complaint against Police Scotland» by MEBO Ltd.

On the occasion of the 33rd memorial year of the Lockerbie tragedy, many reports have been published online and in the press. The well-intended call for a newn investigation by «The Nation» is obsolete because Edwin Bollier & MEBO Ltd. cleared and debunked then deliberately constructed evidential fraud through a «Criminal Complaint against Police Scotland.

The «Criminal Complaint» was filed at Police Scotland and Crown Office on 11th November 2020 by MEBO’S attorney Dr Dieter Neupert. It would take months or even years to convince the authorities to start a new investigation. The facts and evidence are already on the table and Police Scotland need to act immediately without further delays...

They must now make a move by answering the 10 most important accusations in the «Criminal Complaint against Police Scotland – Operation Sandwood». It is now more than a year since MEBO filed this «Criminal Complaint against Police Scotland». The only reaction so far was a letter on 23rd April 2021 to our lawyer, saying that the complex complaint is under assessment.

Several requests for a personal meeting in Scotland remained unanswered. It took them 4 years to prepare the questionable «Operation Sandwood Report».

We concluded that the investigation was not properly conducted. After the written complaint we intended to explain the accusations in detail to avoid further misunderstandings. It is difficult to understand why Police Scotland seems to purposely delay the assessment and not provide answers to the accusations.

Is it inefficiency that they need so much time? Independent experts, familiar with the case, would be able to confirm the described lies and manipulations in a very short time.

It is now time to speed up the process and stop the neverending «delay tactics». Are they afraid to bring the truth to light?

The politically staged «Lockerbie Affair PanAm 103» against Abdelbaset-al Megrahi and LIBYA could soon backfire to Police Scotland and the Scottish Justice. This case will not go away!
