A statement released by Abdelbaset Ali Mohmad Al Megrahi reiterates the Libyan's claim of innocence in respect of the Lockerbie air disaster. Megrahi also said the fight for justice will continue, even in the face of his death.
"I am very distressed that the Court has refused to grant me bail and denied me the chance to spend my remaining time with my family," he said.
"I wish to reiterate that I had nothing whatsoever to do with the Lockerbie bombing and that the fight for justice will continue, regardless of whether I am alive to witness my name being cleared."
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank the many people of Scotland and elsewhere who have taken the time to send me cards and letters of support. Their kindness has touched me and helped me at this difficult time."
"I ask that the privacy of my family is respected during this very difficult time.”
The statement was posted on Professor Robert Black's daily blog, which follows the case as it develops.
