Dr Swire's daughter Flora was killed on the Pan-Am Flight 103 which a bomb exploded on the plane 30,000ft over Lockerbie on 21 December 1988.
Since then Dr Swire has dedicated his life to make sense of the complex web of technical, legal and, he claims, often officially-suppressed intelligence about who carried out the atrocity.
He, and others, are now petitioning the Scottish Parliament:
Justice for Megrahi
Raised by: Dr Jim Swire, Professor Robert Black QC, Mr Robert Forrester, Father Patrick Keegans and Mr Iain McKie on behalf of Justice for Megrahi on 08 October 2010
Calling on the Scottish Parliament to urge the Scottish Government to open an independent inquiry into the 2001 Kamp van Zeist conviction of Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi for the bombing of Pan Am flight 103 in December 1988.
The closing date is 28 October but I would ask you to sign the petition now. Thank you.
