Maltese businessman and key witness in the Lockerbie bombing case who had played a vital role in the trial of Abdelbaset al-Megrahi (d. 2012), the man convicted of the Lockerbie bombing, but doubts later emerged as to whether he had been paid for his assistance in securing the Libyan's conviction, singling out al-Megrahi as having bought clothes from his Sliema shop that was linked to the suitcase containing the bomb which destroyed Pan Am Flight 103 and killed 270 people over the Scottish town of Lockerbie in December 1988.
