Abdelbaset Ali Al-Megrahi
Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi was convicted before the High Court of Justiciary sitting in the Netherlands of the murder of 270 people.
Mr Megrahi contends that he has been the victim of a miscarriage of justice.
His case was referred back to the Court of Criminal Appeal by the Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission on 27th June 2007.
He abandoned his appeal against conviction and sentence, with leave of the Court, on 18 August 2009.
