US to Indict Lockerbie Terrorist

US Department of Justice

The United States is reportedly set to announce the indictment of the Lockerbie bomber on Monday.

UPDATE: The DOJ has announced charges.

Per Fox News:

Attorney General William Barr announced the indictment of the suspected maker of the bomb that brought down Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland.

Monday marks 32 years since the terror attack, which left 270 people dead, including 190 Americans, among them students and service members.

“Let there be no mistake: no amount of time or distance will stop the United States, and its partners in Scotland, from pursuing justice in this case,” Barr told reporters.

Prior to the announcement, a top Libyan government official confirmed to Fox News the reputed bomber is in custody in Libya, has been interrogated, charged and found guilty of several “heinous crimes” involving explosives committed by the former regime of Muammar al-Gaddafi.

According to Fox News:

Attorney General William Barr is holding a press conference at the Justice Department on Monday when he’ll reportedly announce the indictment of the suspected maker of the bomb that brought down Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland.

A top Libyan government official confirmed to Fox News the reputed bomber, Abu Agila Masud, is in custody in Libya, has been interrogated, charged and found guilty of several “heinous crimes” involving explosives committed by the former regime of Muammar al-Gaddafi.

It is reported that Masud built the bomb that was planted in a suitcase by Abdel Basset al-Megrahi that brought the Pan Am plane down over Scotland.

If Masud was brought to trial in the U.S., it would be the first person who faced justice for the Lockerbie bombing in America.

Analysts have stated that a trial and conviction will bring some closure to the victims’ families.

I have felt that Barr was slow walking his investigation probable because he was resistant to i vestigate a former president.
