Legal row breaks out over Lockerbie trial document

E-mail Print PDF

DAVID Miliband, the Foreign Secretary, believes releasing a secret document to the Lockerbie bomber would cause "real harm" to the national interest, appeal court judges were told yesterday.

Mr Miliband has issued a "public interest immunity certificate" against revealing the paper from an unidentified foreign power, which has insisted it should remain confidential and be kept from lawyers for Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi. 

TVNL Comment: Terms like "national interest" are code speak. What does that mean? It means that having the public find out that their government lied to them about a terrorist act would expose them as liars.
