He is among the most informed about the Lockerbie tragedy, having been intimately involved from the night of the bombing. He visited the United States, the United Nations, Germany, Libya and a number of Arab countries and key cities in the United Kingdom in his investigation of the event. He continued to research the subject long after the media lost interest, studying each nuance of the words used by the prosecution and defence lawyers. Apart from those in the court itself, he is one of very few who have studied all the evidence presented at trial, totalling 12,000 pages of transcript. He is among a growing number convinced that the full story of Lockerbie has not yet been revealed.
