HL Deb 30 July 1997 vol 582 c64WA
Lord Avebury

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they have asked the office of the Frankfurt prosecutor for details of the information given by Mr. Abolghasem Mesbahi, a former Iranian intelligence agent who gave evidence in the Mykonos trial, about the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, and whether there are any plans by those in charge of the Lockerbie case to ask the German authorities for permission to interview Mr. Mesbahi themselves.

The Lord Advocate (Lord Hardie)

It is not the policy of the Scottish prosecuting and investigating authorities to give details of investigative steps. I can however assure the noble Lord that the appropriate steps are being taken to look into these matters.
