Document no. 531
Dear ex FBI Special Agent and Manager of the Locerbie Task Force, Mr. Richard Marquise
After having read your book "SCOTBOM: Evidence and the Lockerbie Investigation"several times I come to the conclusion that your book must be read between the lines. I assume that your publication is nothing else then a "enciphered confession" for your bad conscience !
Your keywords are: Libya, Malta, Gauci, Magjid Giaka, The Swiss, Bollier, MEBO, MST-13 timer, Bollier and Gauci again and Lockerbie!
Further I'm convinced that you know the name of the agent who was instructed to visit me on Friday the 30th of December 1988 at MEBO's office in Zurich.
The conspiracy against Libya begins on the 10th of August 1988 in Malta with the hiring of the Libyan defector Magjid Giaka.
Followed by the purchase of cloths on the 23th of November 1988 (and on another date) at Tony Gauci's "Mary House" in Malta.
April 1989: The CIA hands over to FBI "expert" Tom Thurman a complete MST-13 circuit board delivered by the Libyans to Togo. This timer was confiscated by agent Richard Luis Sherrow, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms at the end of 1986 in Togo and was brought to the United States (delivered to the CIA).
May 1989: A meeting in Wahington D.C. took place. Present were Scottish, British, American and German officials.
After this meeting Scottish officials visited in June 1989 the Swiss Federal Police (BUPO) in Bern. Police officer Peter Flückiger confiscated at MEBO in the current of the international police cooperation a brown MST-13 circuit board (prototype) with the letter "M" scratched in for the Scottish police. This brown MST-13 circuit board was handed over to the Swiss police by MEBO Engineer Ulrich Lumpert on the 22th of June 1989 with out Bollier's knowledge.
From this not functional PC-board the first original MST-13 fragment was fabricated at RARDE and also at RARDE the first photos were shot on the 15th of September 1989 from this brown MST-13 timer fragment (polaroid pictures No. 330-334) and Photo 100 (Label PI-995, Ref. PP'8932). These photos are mentioned by Allen Feraday in his memorandum to Inspector William Williamson.
With the brown non functional MST-13 circuit board Libya could not be involved in the PanAm 103 bombing, so from the 12th of May 1990 on by a criminal manipulation a green MST-13 timer fragment (duplicate) was fabricated with the designation PT/35B.
On the 15th of June 1990 FBI "expert" Tom Thurman officially announced that the MST-13 timer fragment (PT/35B) was part of the timer that triggered the bomb which brought PanAm 103 down. From this point in time Libya was definitely brought in connection with the attack on PanAm 103 over Lockerbie !
Hello Mr. Marquise,
You present yourself as the former responsible Task Force Manager in the Lockerbie case, which included the FBI, the Department of Justice and the CIA, and managed all aspects of the investigation. Logically you bear the full responsibility for all irregularities appearing by and by in the Lockerbie-affair! With your provocative statements in different telecasts, for example in the BBC documentary "The Conspiracy Files: Lockerbie" you continue to cling to the tissue of lies that Libya was responsible for the atrocity over Lockerbie.
