Quick Analysis of the Cable

0. Who is the source with excellent access? Patience…

1. The 7.65 Beretta S/N is not 32771 but 327771.

DE51-30

2. “The ammunition was previously reported to be 9 mm. This is incorrect.” No other source claims that the 9mm box contains 7.65 mm ammunitions. The second Joint Minute maintains that the box contained 9mm bullets. See Joint Minute: point 4.H: “One box of 25 bullets (9 mm)”

Box of 25 '9 mm' bullets

Box of 25 ‘9 mm’ bullets

3. The size of the MST-13 box

The cable quotes the size of the box as: Length 3.15″ by Width 2.97″ by Depth 2.72″. Clearly the depth is not correct as can be seen from the picture below that was taken by CIA Clemens in Senegal.

In a recent email (01 June 2015), Bollier told me that he believes that the original box was thicker than the other ROSE boxes he had ordered. Here is what he wrote:

Dear Dr Ludwig

When I was in Dumfries Scotland on 13 September 1999 with the
“Lockerbie Team” to evaluate the MST-13 timer fragments (PT-35/b and DP-31/a), I have seen the MST-13 timer which came from Senegal.

This Rose housing was slightly higher (…). Can you please send me a picture of the open MST-13 timer from the “Senegal Timer”?

Best, Edwin

Unfortunately, Bollier no longer has the technical drawings of this box. This particular model is no longer available and the Company that produced it could not locate these drawings for me.

4. K2? “Stamped inside the cover in blue ink was a large letter K with a small number 2 inside a circle.” I have no picture of it and I know nothing about it. Perhaps, it is the reason why the Togo timer was named “K1”.

5. The LED. “A red LED between the two connection clips becomes illuminated when the electronic time delay is activated.”

DE51-3

This innocent looking tiny LED will come to play a central role in this story. This LED provides irrefutable evidence that the official story of the Lockerbie investigation is a piece of fiction.
