THE MALTESE DOUBLE CROSS -- ILLUSTRATED SCREENPLAY & SCREENCAP GALLERY
Khaled told his family in the Bekaa that he had met this man, Abu Talb, during his trip to Sweden.
Talb had been arrested in Uppsala in October 1988 at the same time the Jibril group arrests had been made in Neuss, Germany.
Talb also was initially released then re-arrested after Lockerbie, accused of terrorism, convicted on the flimsiest evidence and is now serving time in Kumla Prison in Sweden.
In October, 1988, Abu Talb had visited Cyprus and Malta.
He returned from Malta with a hodgepodge of Maltese clothes.
At one point the Maltese shopkeeper, Tony Gauci, so relentlessly questioned by the FBI and Scottish police, shown Abu Talb's photograph, says Abu Talb could be the clothes buyer.
But Tony is never one to make definitive statements. But Khaled Jafaar does tell his family in the Bekaa that he had been given Maltese clothes by Abu Talb, including a baby [inaudible], a fragment of a baby [inaudible], one of the items of clothing the Scottish police and FBI inquire about in Malta.
[Jamilla Moghrabi, wife of Abu Talb] He went to Malta only once in October. A friend of his who has a clothes factory in Malta and Cyprus told him to go to the factory to buy some clothes to export to Sweden. He went to Malta for four days, then returned to Sweden with the clothes.

[Man] Who are you?
[Woman] Did you know Khaled Jafaar? Did you buy him a ticket?
[Man] Who are you? What is your name?
[Woman] The report said that you're a member of Ahmed Jibril's organization, responsible for recruiting for the European branch of the organization. The report also said that you bought a ticket for Khaled Jafaar. Do you agree with what was said? Did Khaled put the bomb on the plane?
[Man] If you come to Germany, we can talk then.
[Woman] Do you know Faisal Jallousse's address?
[Woman] Do you know if he is still in Berlin?
[Man] Yes. He is still here.
[Woman] They say that Faisal Jallousse is involved in the matter as well.
[Man] He was involved? I can't talk about this on the phone. I know that he was accused, but not on the Lockerbie question. I prefer to talk when you come to Germany.
