He used to be instructed it contained outfits, yet hadn’t opened it to envision the contents. The case used to be locked, and even though he was once given keys besides the suitcase, he hadn’t even attempted them within the lock. The case it seems that having been checked in via Louise instead of Saviour used to be by no means mentioned, with Saviour’s assertion implying that he were answerable for all 3 goods carried by means of the couple. He testified to having picked the case up from the carousel at Frankfurt luggage reclaim, carried it via customs, and handed it over within the arrivals corridor – both to Edwin Caruana himself, or to “another individual by way of the identify of Olensio” who was once additionally an Air Malta worker, and prefer Edwin Caruana hailed from the adjoining island of Gozo. ‘Olensio’ was once later pointed out as one Lorenzo Grazias, a Portuguese nationwide. After turning in the suitcase, Saviour and Louise proceeded to board their onward flight to Lisbon. at the long ago from their vacation the couple (or maybe Saviour by myself) had in truth stayed with Edwin Caruana in his flat in Frankfurt for a couple of days. Saviour didn’t bear in mind Edwin having pointed out the suitcase at the moment, yet he meant that if there have been any challenge with it, Edwin could have informed him.

It’s additionally a racing sure bet that the canopy tale may were completely ready and completely rehearsed, instead of calling consciousness to itself with unsuitable statements unconvincingly ‘corrected’ via a sophisticated and disjointed narrative. one other racing sure bet is that the Scottish police probed the backgrounds and contacts of Saviour, Louise, Edwin, Edwin’s father and Lorenzo Grazias with specific care. not anything was once ever said approximately this, which makes it lovely sure not anything suitable to the Lockerbie case used to be exposed. possibly the locked suitcase rather did comprise not anything greater than hot outfits for a local of the Mediterranean condemned to spend iciness in northern Europe. however, one has to keep in mind that Malta within the Eighties had whatever of a name as a conduit for drug smuggling from assets additional east.
