By Christopher Hope Whitehall Editor THE man suspected of killing WPc Yvonne Fletcher can be identified for the first time.
Scotland Yard believes he may have died, although this could be a pretence by officials in Libya to stop officers from questioning him.
The Telegraph can reveal that Abdulmagid Salah Ameri, a junior diplomat working at the Libyan embassy, was seen firing a machine gun from a window in April 1984.
Following the collapse of Muammar Gaddafi’s regime, Scotland Yard, which has kept the case open, is planning to send officers to Libya in the hope of bringing the suspected killer and his alleged accomplices to justice.
Mr Ameri was identified by a witness in a 140-page secret review of evidence conducted at the request of the Metropolitan Police. The report, seen by The Telegraph, was written by a senior Canadian prosecutor and addressed to Sue Hemming, the head of counter-terrorism at the Crown Prosecution Service.
WPc Fletcher was killed by a single bullet that hit her in the abdomen. An 11-day armed siege followed, which ended when 30 Libyans from the embassy were deported. No one has ever been charged with killing the officer.
Queenie Fletcher, her mother, declined to comment but said last week that the turmoil in Libya offered the “best chance yet” of catching her daughter’s killer.

Foreign Office officials are already in discussions with Scotland Yard about detectives investigating the Fletcher case, who have made three trips to Libya in recent years, returning to the country. Officials said finding the killer of WPc Fletcher was a “priority” for ministers.
The secret CPS report contains detailed testimony from David Robertson, a painter and decorator who had a clear view of the embassy on the day of the shooting and watched a man open fire on a crowd of antiGaddafi protesters.
The report says: “The man was holding the stock of the gun in his right hand, while his left hand was near the trigger area, as if he was about to fire.
“There were other men with him, with one to his left and at least two others standing behind him.
“There was no grille behind the window, although it appeared to have a blue haze, which Mr Robertson thought might have been a curtain.
“Mr Robertson made a comment to someone to his left about the gun and, as he did so, he heard the gun being fired from the direction of the bureau, a ‘rapid rat-atat-tat’ lasting for two or three seconds.”
Mr Robertson subsequently identified Mr Ameri on television as he left the embassy after the siege. He believed that the man he had seen holding the gun was “second from the left” in a group of five Libyans.
Sources close to the investigation confirmed that the suspect identified by Mr Robertson was Mr Ameri.
The CPS report, whose existence was first disclosed nearly two years ago by The Daily Telegraph, concluded that there was enough evidence to prosecute two other Libyans, Abdelgader Mohammed Baghdadi and Matouk Mohammed Matouk, for conspiracy to cause WPc Fletcher’s death.
The report alleges that they “assumed leadership roles” inside the embassy, and Baghdadi in particular “advised that the demonstrators would be fired on, directed their positioning outside the bureau and gave instructions as to what they were to do when the firing stopped”. Graeme Cameron, the Canadian author of the report, declined to comment on his review last week but said that the current chaos in Libya presented “an opportunity for the Metropolitan Police” to gather more evidence.
He praised the police investigators for their “dogged” pursuit of the killers, despite being frequently frustrated by Gaddafi’s regime.
A Foreign Office spokesman said: “Helping the Metropolitan Police Service conclude the investigation is a priority for this government.”

strikes during the morning, the rebels suddenly broke through the outer perimeter of Bab al-Aziziya soon after 3pm and routed the guards inside, who left their uniforms and weapons as they fled.
Just two hours later, the rebels were roaming through Gaddafi’s official residence, grabbing souvenirs including his trademark peaked cap and plundering his arms stores.
This gave way to the grim reality of a guerrilla battle for the suburbs of Tripoli that were still held by the despot’s supporters.
Throughout last Wednesday, fierce gun battles raged in Abu Salim, a mile-wide corridor to the south of Bab al-Aziziya which is a possible location of Gaddafi’s hideout.
While rebel fighters used Gaddafi’s compound as their new base, helping themselves to weapons left behind by his retreating soldiers, the loyalists took up positions in a wildlife park nearby and fired rockets and mortars into the compound. With snipers trying to pick off anyone using the ports and airports, aid agencies have been unable to deliver supplies of medicine, food or water, and hospitals in Tripoli have been overwhelmed with casualties.
Rosa Crestani, of the charity Medecins Sans Frontières, said: “The situation is very tough … it’s almost a catastrophe. There are clearly shortages of life-saving medication and equipment.”
There were also reports of gunfights in the maze of tunnels under Bab al-Aziziya through which Gaddafi is thought to have slipped away. The dictator continued to urge on his supporters, using a telephone interview with a loyalist television station to call for Tripoli to be “cleansed” of the “devils and traitors” who had captured it.
He also claimed to have toured Tripoli “incognito”, saying: “I saw youths ready to defend their city.”
His daughter, Aisha, told Libyans to “stand hand-inhand against Nato”, while Gaddafi’s spokesman, Moussa Ibrahim, boasted that loyalist forces had the capability to fight on “not just for months, for years”.
Rebel forces who were mopping up the last remnants of resistance in Tripoli last Saturday discovered a warehouse containing the charred skeletons of scores of prisoners who were killed and burnt as troops fled.
Residents living close to the site, near the southern Tripoli headquarters of Libya’s most feared military unit, the Khamis Brigade, say they heard shooting and explosions on Tuesday evening last week.
Last Friday night, rebel forces captured the base and drove out the remaining fighters. On the Saturday morning, residents and rebel forces went in and discovered the remains of at least 53 people.
Eight bodies, hands bound, had been left outside the shed. Inside, the remainder had been burned as they lay, the canisters of petrol still lying in the corners. The Telegraph was told by locals that up to 150 people were thought to have been killed there.
The horrific find could add to evidence in any future war crimes prosecution of the Libyan leader.
Gaddafi last week taunted his opponents by claiming in a television interview that he had secretly toured the streets of Tripoli without being spotted.
He said he would fight on “until victory or martyrdom”, while his spokesman said loyalist soldiers were well prepared to carry on the battle “for years”.
