I frankly think Megrahi was guilty. The narrative supporting his conviction is far more plausible than the suggested alternatives, and Megrahi's behavior and the behavior of Libya's government after the conviction indicate a consciousness of guilt. I don't know whether the bombing happened the way the prosecutors argued, but that isn't the question. The question is whether he was responsible. And on that matter, I am persuaded.
In an interview with The Scotsman on 1 November 2005 Professor Black said Megrahi's conviction was "the most disgraceful miscarriage of justice in Scotland for 100 years." He vowed to continue his fight to have the case brought back to the appeal courts. "I have written about this and nobody is interested," Black said. "Every lawyer who has ... read the judgment says 'this is nonsense'. It is nonsense. It really distresses me; I won't let it go."
