I imagine he would.
The former Libyan intelligence agent convicted of the 1988 Lockerbie bombing over Scotland that killed 270 people made a rare public appearance on Tuesday at a rally in support of Muammar al-Qaddafi, a “further reminder that a great mistake was made when he was released,” British Foreign Secretary William Hague said.
But of course Britain has no death penalty any more, so he was alive and kicking when he was released ‘on humanitarian grounds’.
Abdel Basset al-Megrahi, who returned to a hero’s welcome in Libya in 2009 after being released from a Scottish jail after being diagnosed with terminal prostate cancer, appeared on Libyan state television wearing traditional local garb while sitting in a wheelchair at a tribal meeting in Tripoli.
I wonder whether Crazy Anders can expect the same treatment? After all, he killed less than a third of the number of people that al-Megrahi did. He’ll probably have to convert to Islam while in prison, wink wink.
