Commenting, after the Cabinet Secretary for Justice made a further statement on the circumstances that led to Abdelbaset al-Megrahi's release, Scottish Liberal Democrat Justice spokesperson Alison McInnes MSP said:

Alison McInnes MSPAlison McInnes MSP"The publication of John Ashton's biography has left Kenny MacAskill facing yet more questions over his decision to release Mr al-Megrahi.

"Whether that release was right or not, the Justice Secretary must accept that his decision to visit Mr al-Megrahi in prison was highly inappropriate. It has left the door open as to whether due process was followed, and causing further distress for the victims of the Lockerbie bombing."
