Lockerbie: SCCRC documentation will not be released

The Herald for 15 June 2010 carried a story that none of the Crown Office, the Foreign Office, the police and Abdelbaset al Megrahi have (as yet) consented to the public release of the documents that led the Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission to refer the last-named's conviction back to the Appeal Court in 2007.

It also appears from the story that in February The Herald made a freedom of information request for the papers to the Commission, whose refusal to give access was subsequently upheld by the Scottish Information Commissioner.
