EDISON - On the anniversary of the Lockerbie bomber release, New Jersey's two senators spoke out, renewing their call for an investigation into the shortening of his sentence.

Abdel Baset al-Megrahi was released from a Scottish prison on compassionate grounds one year ago after serving eight years of a life sentence for the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. The attack killed 270 people, including 38 from New Jersey.

During a press conference today, Senators Robert Menendez (D-NJ) and Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) said they plan to release a letter to the British, Scottish, Libyan and Qatari governments citing evidence of commercial pressures influencing his release.
