THE MALTESE DOUBLE CROSS -- ILLUSTRATED SCREENPLAY & SCREENCAP GALLERY
[Lamin Khalifah Fhima, Libyan suspect] In simple terms, my son one day asked me a question. He said: "If the Americans kill you, will they kill me as well?" This is the tragedy which I face with my family.
[Oliver "Buck Revell," FBI Head of Lockerbie Investigation] All of us working on the case made it a very very personal priority of the utmost order, we were not going to let this go unpunished. And frankly, I believe that we need to do more to punish Libya than we have done if they do not surrender the defendants and stand before the court of law.
[Abdel Basset Ali Al-Megrahi, Libyan suspect] I have suffered psychologically and my family has suffered.
My wife suffered a lot. She was pregnant at the time of the accusation. She fell ill and she is still suffering.
My family and I have suffered a lot. The more upset I am about the families, the more I feel myself a victim of this accusation. I can tell them that I am a victim of that accusation, as they are victims of the criminal act which took place.

When we got to Sweden, we went to the police station in this town where we were going to live and we reported in, and I told them our story, and I asked for political asylum, and they put us up in a refugee camp and they gave us an apartment and a living stipend, clothes, because we didn't have anything, at that point, no money, it wasn't an easy thing for us to leave.
And we were looking over our shoulder the whole time until we got to Sweden. And it was such a relief, such a big burden off of our shoulders when we got there, that we all just broke down in the police station. And it was a, it was a ... [too choked up to continue].
[Jafaar Family Member] We were sad when he died. He was an innocent child. Hizbollah dragged him into this.
[Ahmed Jibril] The joint British/American inquiry concluded a few weeks ago that the PFLP-GC and Ahmed Jibril had nothing to do with the Pan Am bomb. This has been published in many different countries around the world. What right has the U.S. government to accuse us in this manner? And now, years later, they acquit us of these charges. Doesn't the U.S. government feel any shame?
