Menendez on Death of Megrahi

Washington - US Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ), a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, today released the following statement on news of the death of Megrahi:

"For more than 2 decades, families who lost loved ones on Pan Am 103, like the 34 families in New Jersey, have been waiting for justice. The death of Megrahi will never relieve their pain and unimaginable loss, and only closes one chapter of this tragedy.

"However, as someone who lead the hearings into al Megrahi's infamous release, I know that justice has not been fully served and I intend to continue to fight to ensure all leads are pursued, so that we find the truth. I will judge the Libyan government by their commitment to assist us with access to the files and people left from the Quadafi regime, so that justice can be finally served."
