He might be related to more terror attacks like the bombing of the La Belle discotheque in West-Berlin back then, that was followed by US air strikes on Libya and the Gaddafi compound.

He was reported as kidnapped in Libya , now he’s in US custody & about to go on trial.
Was he ‘rendered’?

Most likely a combination of both.

Who cares how he was brought to the USA, if it turns out, he was guilty of making the bomb that brought down PA103. It's 34 years after the attack. Seems like very dogged detective work.

It seems to me that he’s been found guilty already.
He’ll be tried but the verdict’s inevitably ‘as charged’.
