Abdel Basset Al-Megrahi, the recently released former Libyan agent who was convicted for his role in the 1988 Lockerbie bombing, has launched a Website to clear his name. The site is pretty minimal so far, but has a few documents related to his appeal available for download. In a press release through his law firm, he said: 

"As a result of the abandonment of my appeal I have been deprived of the opportunity to clear my name through the formal appeal process.

"I have vowed to continue my attempts to clear my name. I will do everything in my power to persuade the public, and in particular the Scottish public, of my innocence."
