The officer, who was a member of the Association of Chief Police Officers Scotland, is supporting earlier claims by a former CIA agent that his bosses "wrote the script" to incriminate Libya..............
"He has confirmed that parts of the case were fabricated and that evidence was planted. At first he requested anonymity, but has backed down and will be identified if and when the case returns to the appeal court."
The vital evidence that linked the bombing of Pan Am 103 to Megrahi was a tiny fragment of circuit board which investigators found in a wooded area many miles from Lockerbie months after the atrocity.
The fragment was later identified by the FBI's Thomas Thurman as being part of a sophisticated timer device used to detonate explosives, and manufactured by the Swiss firm Mebo, which supplied it only to Libya and the East German Stasi.
But Esson, who retired in 1994, questioned the officer's motives. He said: "Any police officer who believed they had knowledge of any element of fabrication in any criminal case would have a duty to act on that. Failure to do so would call into question their integrity, and I can't help but question their motive for raising the matter now."

The reasons the officer later offers for his failure to report until now/then are pure bunk....
Since this trial is set for appeal in the summer of 2006, one would expect there would be more coverage over the past nine month’s if there were truly creditable claims. mg

Just so you know, this is not really a new story. The source is from last August and was reported on ATS at that time:

If this info is true. What a creep for keeping quiet for all these years. I hope they hang him if he was in collusion with them. Innocent people died as a result (Khadafy's 18month old adopted baby daughter) I wonder if President Regan had known about this?
