No double-dealing over Lockerbie

There was no "double-dealing," no oil deal and no private declaration to Libya in an effort to secure the release of the prisoner Lockerbie bomber, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said Wednesday.

Brown took time out from an occurrence in Birmingham, England, to address the issue a day after the British and Scottish governments released more than 100 pages of previously secret documents concerning the release of Abdelbeset Ali Mohmed al Megrahi.

The Scottish Parliament also held a heated discuss Wednesday about the Scottish justice minister's conclusion to release al Megrahi. A vote was expected later in the afternoon on whether parliament members accepted of the move, with the option of distancing themselves from the decision.
