The US Senators have in essence been trying to summon a duly democratically elected member of both the Scottish Parliament, and the Westminster Parliament to face charges of: Releaseing a Prisoner from a UK jail whom was found guilty in a UK Court, and banished from the UK by a UK Justice Minister. In what world does the United States think it has that level of authority over anyone? We are a democracy, we will not change from that. Justly so, each of the summoned ministers have rejected the plea of the United States.
A US senator has asked the Scottish government to reconsider its decision not to send officials to a hearing into the release of the Lockerbie bomber.
The United States is not politely requesting if a Member of the Scottish Goverment would kindly attend, they are asking that the Member of the Scottish Goverment be Sent Across the atlantic! It is outrageous, country to what they belive the United States border ends somewhere outside of washington Not mainland europe!
They have no authority here to Demand anything we have a legitimate goverment democratically elected.
