Malta’s role in the Lockerbie bombing will be discussed in Tuesday’s edition of TV programme Times Talk.

Twenty five years ago, Pan Am 103 was blown up over the Scottish skies, killing 259 on board and 11 on the ground. Abdelbaset al-Megrahi was convicted of planting the bomb on board an Air Malta flight before it made its deadly trail to London Heathrow via Frankfurt.

But evidence unearthed in recent years showed that the conviction could have been a miscarriage of justice, and placed considerable doubts on the Maltese man who claimed to have identified the Lockerbie bomber.

Foreign Affairs Minister George Vella and criminal lawyer Giannella de Marco, who was involved in the Lockerbie probe, will be the main guests in the studio.

Viewers are invited to send their questions and comments on timesofmalta.com and on the Facebook and Twitter pages of Times Talk.

Presented by Times of Malta’s head of media Herman Grech and chief reporter Mark Micallef, Times Talk is live on TVM at 6.55pm with a repeat on TVM 2 at 10.15pm.
