Letter from Ali Abdel Baset al-Megrahi, part 2

For the first time in history a president of a country visited a person that is accused of a crime in prison because he knew and was sure that my dad was not guilty .

He said to him I know you are not guilty. The injustice that is happening to you has happened to me before

You will always be a symbol for Libya because you are a man who was wrongfully accused. You sacrificed yourself for Libya and for the Libyan people and I'm proud because you hung on and stayed strong.
Ali Abdel Baset al-Megrahi

Because its hard to take this decision for the country or your life so you did something that is historical and I will never forget it my whole life.

These are the words of Nelson Mandela to my dad Abdelbasset al Megrahi.
