HL Deb 10 December 1991 vol 533 c27WA
Lord Kennet

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether, in their view, international law allows for the use of military force to secure the persons of those charged in relation to the Lockerbie disaster.

The Earl of Caithness

It would be a violation of the territorial sovereignty of a state for another state to send military forces into it without its consent for the purpose of apprehending a fugitive criminal.
