Polish Plane Crash : TNT after all
2012 12 12

From: SmolenskCrash.eu

On the 5th of December, Military investigators admitted to Members of Parliament during a sitting of the Justice Committee that some detectors traced TNT in the wreckage of the plane.

In another twist to the investigation of 2010 Smolensk aircraft crash, which killed President Lech Kaczynski and a number of other state officials, Polish MPs from the justice committee met with military investigators from the Polish Military Prosecutor’s Office, who admitted that some detectors traced TNT in the wreckage of the plane, which apparently does not need to imply the presence of explosives....

In November Poland’s daily Rzeczpospolita published a text about traces of explosives on the Smolensk plane wreckage. Later, the publisher said that the information gained by the author of the article was over interpreted. In consequence, the daily’s editor in chief Tomasz Wroblewski and the author of the article Cezary Gmyz along with two other editors were laid off.

On Thursday, Jaroslaw Kaczynski PiS leader and twin brother of the late President, said that the text published by Rzeczpospolita was “not far from the truth” and such situation “constitutes a serious threat to freedom of speech” and demanded that the decision about firing the journalists “would be reconsidered”.


“Today, we know that traces of TNT were found on the wreckage of the TU-154 plane ... but from confirming traces of TNT to suggesting an assassination is a long way,” commented Justice Minister Jarosław Gowin.


Jan Bokszczanin, a producer of devices detecting explosives, who was present during the justice committees hearing, said that it was impossible that the devices pointing to TNT traces could have been mistaken with anything else. ‘In factual conditions [...] if the device indicated the presence of the TNT particles, the possibility that they were anything else are zero.’ said Bokszczanin. ‘I cannot accept a thesis that if the devices indicated a concentration of TNT that the detected substance could be anything else but TNT traces’ – continued Bokszczanin. He highlighted that the unit could be in fact ‘blocked’, but in such case the devices wouldn’t indicate anything. Bokszczanin said also that the device is being used by at least 60 countries, and if its indications were to be imprecise or misleading ‘it would not be purchased in the first place.’
