US reporter Christopher Bollyn claims that US administration played an instrumental part in the disaster or M/S Estonia in September 1994.
Today’s Eesti Päevaleht reports that Bollyn is convinced that the high-tech military equipment that was reportedly carried on M/S Estonia shortly before the ferry sank was meant to reach USA and that the ferry was sunk to get rid of key witnesses.
The claims made by Bollyn who is married to Helje Kaskel whose ex-husband Urmas Alender died in the disaster were supported by the findings of the Swedish investigation which showed that on 28 September 1994 two small planes arrived in Arlanda airport and took on board nine passengers whose identity was not known and disappeared without a trace.
Bollyn claims that the trip was paid for by the US administration. By one scenario, nine key witnesses included the ferry’s captain Piht.
“I believe that Piht is alive and is living under a witness protection programme. He may have a new identity because he probably knew why the ferry sank. Also people who knew he was alive disappeared,” says Bollyn.
Bollyn says that Piht was questioned by high Swedish authorities right after the accident. “It is not possible that 12 names of Estonians ended up in the list of survivors and were later not found,” he says.
M/S Estonia sank on the night of September 28, 1994 in the Baltic Sea, killing 852 people.
