Something is “rotten in Denmark” as the man who was convicted to life in prison for the deaths of 270 souls was released from his prison “on humanitarian grounds, due to his terminal state.
“Following the release, doubts were expressed whether Megrahi was as ill as claimed by MacAskill in his statement to the Scottish Parliament. The guidance on compassionate release of a terminally ill prisoner under Scottish law specifies that death must be likely to occur "soon"; there is no fixed time limit but a life expectancy of three months is suggested as "appropriate". The Labour MSP for Mid Scotland and Fife and a Minister in the previous Labour administration, Dr Richard Simpson, accused the Scottish justice minister of failing to conduct sufficient checks before deciding to release Megrahi. Dr Simpson, a former member of the British Association of Urological Surgeons' prostate cancer working group who specialised in prostate disease research, expressed doubt that Megrahi would die within the next three months and claimed that Megrahi could live for eight months.”
Well surprise, surprise he has survived his terminal cancer past the three month stage as well as the eight month stage. It appears that “freedom” is the best medicine after all.
Not only is he well enough to keep on breathing in his terminal state, he has disappeared from the hospital in which he is being comforted in his impending death.
“Libyan officials could say nothing about the whereabouts of Abdul Baset Ali al-Megrahi, and his Scottish monitors could not contact him by telephone. They will try again to speak to him today but if they fail to reach him, the Scottish government could face a new crisis.”
It appears that perhaps he was depressed that his journey to collect his 72 virgins was taking so long that he decided on finding a few living ones in the meantime. Then again, maybe he has simply been "misplaced" because after all it is a "State run hospital like the ones Democrats are trying to bring to America"?
