From the office of U.S. Sen. Barbara Mikulski:
MIKULSKI STATEMENT ON DEATH OF PAN AM 103 BOMBER
U.S. Senator Barbara A. Mikulski (D-Md.) today issued the following statement on the death of terrorist Mohmet al-Megrahi:
“Mohmet al-Megrahi was a convicted terrorist who murdered 270 innocent victims aboard Pan Am 103 in December 1988. He died at home, surrounded by his family. He was released by the Scottish Government three years ago and returned home to Libya to a hero’s welcome. This was a total failure of justice.
“Eight Marylanders died onboard Pan Am 103. They were Michael Bernstein, Jay Kingham, Karen Noonan, Ann Lindsey Otenasek, Anita Reeves, Louise Rogers, Miriam Wolf and George Williams. They were college students, a young Army Lieutenant, a businessman and a lawyer. They were sons, daughters and fathers.
“Megrahi is dead – but there are still many questions about others who were also responsible for this terrible crime, who have never been brought to justice.
“My thoughts today are with the families of the victims, who continue to suffer the loss of their loved ones and the failure to bring their killers to justice. The new government of Libya must cooperate in further investigations of who was responsible for this terrible crime.”
