New Jersey's two U.S. senators on Friday will meet with victims' families one year after the Pan Am 103 bomber was released from a Socttish prison.
Democrats Robert Menendez and Frank Lautenberg are pressing an investigation into the circumstances of Abdel Baset Al-Megrahi's release on compassionate grounds. He's alive in Libya even though doctors had said he would likely die of prostate cancer in three months.
Lautenberg and Menendez say they'll release a new letter to the British, Scottish, Libyan and Qatari governments citing evidence of commercial pressures influencing his release.
Al-Megrahi was the only person jailed for the 1988 bombing above the Scottish town of Lockerbie, which killed 259 people onboard and 11 on the ground.
Menendez is leading a Senate Foreign Relations Committee investigation.calls for a combination of private, state and public funding.
