In this story, Key Lockerbie Witness Admits Perjury dated 9/15/07, it is revealed that Ulrich Lumpert, a key witness in the trial confirmed in an affidavit that he was lying at the trial:
"I confirm today on July 18th 2007, that I stole the third hand-manufactured MST-13 Timer PC-Board consisting of 8 layers of fibre-glass from MEBO Ltd. and gave it without permission on June 22nd 1989 to a person officially investigating in the Lockerbie case," Lumpert wrote. (The identity of the official is known.)The story goes on to indict other forensic specialists of evidence tampering in order to make Libya look guilty. The CIA and the FBI even helped promote the theory that this event had something to do with Libya. shocking
Another key witness, a Maltese shirt seller named Tony Gauci gave a series of 19 statements that were inconsistent and yet his testimony, the parts that fit, were accepted as evidence by the judges in Scotland.
In the above story, Edwin Bollier's testimony was used to discredit Ulrich Lumpert's testimony. Both worked at MEBO a Swiss company that manufactures timing devices used for bombs. But in this story from the BBC dated 1/27/2001, Bollier is branded a liar.
In this story from the Scotsman, dated 6/29/07, Witness kept changing story - but trial never told details of the questionable testimony by Gauci is spelled out.
Further googling turned up this story- Entrapment of Maltese witness in Lockerbie raises few eyebrows from Malta Today, which reveals that "Gauci had repeatedly boasted of lavish trips to Scotland organised by the Scottish police involving mountain hikes, visiting the Aviemore ski resort, fly-fishing for salmon and bird-watching. On at least one occasion claimed to have been put up at the luxury GBP150 a night Hilton Hotel in Glasgow."
Libya never claimed responsibility for the bombing, but paid £2.7 billion to the victim's families. See also Return of Lockerbie bomber 'a priority'.
