Muammar Qaddafi has officially stated his conditions for the release of the five Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian doctor sentenced to death in Libya, a website of the Libyan opposition claims.

Cited by the Bulgarian national radio, the site claims that Qaddafi has sent an official note to the EU country members and the US, requesting compensations for the families of the HIV-infected children and the release of the terrorist from Lockerbie.

In his note Qaddafi admitted that there were problems in his country's health system. He vowed that if Bulgaria pardons Libya's debt, then Libya would offer the Balkan country options to take part in programs for fixing Libya's health system.

Qaddafi also stated that a Bulgarian non-governmental organization should be the one to negotiate the financial compensations with the medics' relatives.

The UK should help with the release of the Lockerbie bomber, the note also says. He could be released because he has already served his sentence, or he could receive amnesty, or be extradited to Libya, Qaddafi suggests.
