Pan Am 103 Families Condemn U.S.-Libya Business Association Meeting

Washington, November 5, 2007 - The U.S.-Libya Business Association today is holding its second annual conference on U.S.-Libya policy. Kara Weipz's brother Rick Monetti was one of 270 victims who died when Libyan terrorists bombed Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland in 1988.

Ms. Weipz stated, "The Pan Am 103 Families are deeply saddened today by the U.S.-Libya Business Association's meeting and their "business as usual" attitude about the 270 family members and loved ones who died at the hands of Libyan terrorists. Libya has not fulfilled justice to American victims of its terrorist policy. The Pan Am 103 Families are disappointed to see U.S. Administration officials attend a public meeting funded by the business community; clearly they have chosen to put oil dollars ahead of justice for the 270 victims of Libyan terrorism.

"The Pan Am 103 Families thank Senator Frank Lautenberg for leading bipartisan, Congressional efforts for the past twenty years to hold Libya accountable."
