COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4)- A Colorado Springs woman says Mohammar Gadhafi must be brought to justice. Lisa Gibson’s brother was killed when Libyan agents bombed Pan Am Flight 103.

In 1988, 270 people died as a bomb exploded on board the plane. It crashed into homes in Lockerbie, Scotland.

One of those on board the plane was Kenneth Gibson, a soldier returning home for Christmas. His family hadn’t seen him in two years.

Instead of condemning Libya in anger, Lisa reached out in reconciliation, visiting four times. She even met Col. Gadhafi in New York at the Libyan U.N. Mission.

“I think that now we know for sure that he was responsible when one of his leaders came out shortly after the revolution started and said, yes, he was responsible,” said Lisa.

The only man convicted in the Lockerbie bombing is Abdel Baset Al-Megrahi, a Libyan agent. He was released by the Scottish government two years ago under the belief he was suffering from a terminal illness and was close to death.

“Bringing him back and putting him in prison is going to serve no purpose other than a sign of revenge rather than justice,” said Lisa.

In June, Lisa addressed a crowd of 100,000 people in Benghazi’s Freedom Square, the home of the Libyan opposition.

“I think the time has come. I think the Libyan people have spoken clearly and loudly that he is no longer wanted. Forty-two years is a long time to live under tyranny,” said Lisa.

Lisa’s foundation is the Peace and Prosperity Alliance. More information can be found at peaceandprosperityalliance.org.
