https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/eu ... story.htmlWARSAW, Poland — The bodies of former Polish President Lech Kaczynski and his wife have been removed from their tomb in Krakow, the first of more than 80 exhumations planned on prominent Poles killed in a plane crash in Russia in 2010.
The exhumations that began late Monday are part of a new investigation into the crash ordered by Poland’s conservative ruling party, Law and Justice, which is led by Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the late president’s twin brother. Post-mortems will be carried out to determine the cause of the deaths and of the crash, identify all the remains and check for explosives, since some of Kaczynski’s followers believe that a planned blast downed the aircraft, killing all 96 aboard.
Kaczynski has cast doubt on earlier investigations — carried out by both Poland and Russia — which concluded that the crash was an accident caused primarily by pilot error on approach to landing in dense fog. Kaczynski has for years encouraged a conspiracy theory suggesting Russia carried out an assassination with the support, or at least the consent, of the Polish prime minister at the time — Donald Tusk, now the president of the European Council.
Kaczynski wants to take Tusk, his nemesis, to court and is seeking evidence against him.
Visserligen ska man ju inte lämna en sten på en annan sten förrän man vet sanningen, men i det här fallet har man inget starkt bevis för att något egentligen är fel i de tidigare utredningarna. Olyckligt att konspirationsteoretiker ska lyckas få genomföra en sådan undersökning.
