    It's nice that he allowed his victims to die with dignity.

    Here's your tiny little violin.

    Was I speaking about the Western society here?

    My bad, I think we're in agreement. I didn't realize on first read that your post was sarcastic. Please be a dear and pass the violin along to Slainte.

    Did this man have a hand in an act of terrorism that killed over, what 250 people was it? If yes, he can rot in jail till dead. That's what a life sentence is. Do you let all life sentence people out of jail when they're old so they can "die with dignity". I think if you wish to die with dignity you don't commit terrorist acts which kill over 200 people.

    Your knowledge of this case is clearly very limited, as reflected by your "jury of his peers" and "special tretment" statements.

    I would suggest you actually examine the facts surrounding the case before jumping on a populist bandwagon and launching crude and unintelligent insults at those who disagree with you.

    Maybe all the experts who have posted on this thread could tell me, and while they are at it, point me to some convincing evidence!

    He was convicted, he was never acquitted, he is, therefore, guilty.

    That should all be provided in the court documents. If this guy had a hand in a terrorist act which killed over 200 people, rot in jail.

    You never answered my question, do you let all old people who are on life sentences out of jail early when they are old so they can die with dignity at home? Or is it just terminal disease for some reason? Cause both cases are essentially the same, only in one case someone is dying faster. But the statement about dying with dignity didn't seen to be dependent on speed of death, so do you or do you endorse early release for all life sentences so people can die with dignity out of jail?

    Was he convicted in court? If so, he should not be released. THE END.

    I believe they must have less than 3 months to live according to medical experts, as well as meet a host of other criteria. However, every case is handled on a case by case basis and ultimately depends on the justice department.

    As I said in my first post, if this were an open and shut case I do not think he would be released. However, as such controversy surrounded his conviction, and bear in mind, the relatives of most of the Scottish victims support his release, factors which, technically speaking, should not be considered probably were.
