The book, written in close collaboration with Megrahi by a former member of his defence team, John Ashton, said MacAskill had made the suggestion in a private conversation with Libya's then foreign minister, Abdulati al-Obedi, after a formal meeting between the two governments on 10 August in Edinburgh.
