Lockerbie bomber 'set free for oil'

This story is really starting to develop in two directions, firstly what went on behind the scenes in Westminster and secondly what Megrahi knows.

In the Sunday Times is an article that states:
Gordon Brown’s government made the decision [to release Megrahi] after discussions between Libya and BP over a multi-million-pound oil exploration deal had hit difficulties. These were resolved soon afterwards.
I think I speak for many when I say "no s£$t Sherlock". How low this government would sink for oil has been firmly established since 2002. Yet that's not what really interests me, this does. Megrahi is calling for a public inquiry into the Lockerbie bombing and:
He has documents which have not yet been disclosed to the public, and documents that were being prepared for his appeal which he dropped last week as part of his hopes for returning to Tripoli.
It would be somewhat poetic if spending so much time dealing in back rooms, this government over looked the very simple notion of truth and human nature. If Megrahi is innocent he will release those documents, he will want to clear his name. Which leaves the question hanging in the air, if it wasn't him, who was it? Just how deep does this rabbit hole go?
