Evidence of two secret meetings between Tony Blair and Col Muammar Gaddafi has been unearthed by The Sunday Telegraph.

Letters and Emails appertaining to meetings between the two war criminals reveal that Tony Blair was in talks with Gaddafi in the months leading up to the release of the Lockerbie bomber, Abdelbaset al-Megrahi.

Yet none of Tony Blair's websites make mention of the meetings.

This is rather uncommon seeing as nearly all of Blair's movements and appointments are catalogued on his websites so these two meetings are conspicuous by their absence and questionable considering their timing.

According to sources to The Sunday Telegraph, Tony Blair brought an American Billionaire friend to the meetings as a request by Gaddafi.

This Billionaire friend was apparently asked to attend the meeting so he could help build commercial beach resorts in Libya.

The former Prime Minister who lead lead Britain into a war against the wishes of the British people is said to have been flown to Libya, the flight of which was funded by Col Gaddafi.

This has sparked outrage amongst the families victims of the bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie, even prompting former Ambassador to Libya, Oliver Miles to say:

"Mr Blair is clearly using his Downing Street contacts to further his business interests."

Pam Dix, who lost a brother in the Lockerbie Bombing said:

"The idea of Gaddafi paying for Mr Blair's visit is deeply offensive.

"These new meetings between Mr Blair and Gaddafi are disturbing, and details of what was discussed should now be made public.

I am astonished Tony Blair continued to have meetings like this out of office."

A spokesperson for Tony Blair (who has made tens of millions on the back of his former vocation as PM)  said:

“Of course the Libyans, as they always did, raised Megrahi. Mr Blair explained, as he always did, in office and out of it, that it was not a decision for the UK government but for the Scottish Executive.”

And a spokesperson for Blair's Billionaire friend, Tim Collins said:

“Tim was asked to go by Tony Blair in his position as a trustee of Mr Blair’s US faith foundation.

Tim had no intention of doing any business with Gaddafi.”

So it would seem Tim Collins simply went to Libya not at the request of Gaddafi but as a favour to his friend, Tony Blair even though the walked away with nothing for Blair's Faith Foundation.

Why else would a financier go to Libya to return empty handed?
