Terrorist was not traded for oil, British PM persist

The British government did not make a deal to send the Lockerbie bomber home in exchange for an oil agreement with Libya..

"There was no deal over the release" of Abdelbeset Ali Mohmed al Megrahi.. The government was responding to information that the British government wanted al Megrahi to be eligible for release in order to smooth the way for the British oil giant BP to win exploration rights in Libya.

"The central assertion in this story is totally untrue and deeply misleading," Brown's office said in response to a story that originated in the Sunday Times.
