Report relating to appeal of Al Megrahi

The International Research Centre of Investigative Psychology compiled a report on the eyewitness testimony that was crucial in convicting  Al Megrahi as the Lockerbie Bomber. Professor Canter and his team carried out a detailed analysis of all aspects of the testimony of the main witness, a Maltese shop-keeper Mr Gauci. They also carried out an experiment to test key aspects of his identification evidence. The full report here  was to be used in Al Megrahi’s appeal, which was dropped when he was allowed back home on medical grounds.
