The Lockerbie Secret Doc: Khreesat and the Swiss

“Marwan Khreesat is still wanted in connection with the bomb on the El Al flight. There can be little doubt that Khreesat is the bomb-maker for the PFLP-GC, that he was brought to West Germany for that purpose and there is a possibility that he prepared the IED which destroyed PA 103. As such he should not be at liberty but should be closely questioned regarding his activities with a view to tracking his associates in the attak.”

Supt. Connor Report — June 1989


Khreesat – Dalkamoni – Talb – Jibril

Swiss investigative journalist Otto Hostettler has uncovered a very interesting piece of information.

According to his research:

Khreesat Marwan Abdel-Razzaq Mufdi applied on 6.9.1988 at the Swiss Embassy in Amman for a visa to travel to Switzerland.

Despite being a “person of interest” in Switzerland [unexplained Swissair-Crash from 1970 (Würenlingen)] and being wanted in Italy (El Al Flight August 1972), he was indeed granted a 15 days visa from Switzerland on 12.9.1988 .

(Marwan Khreesat had flown to Germany from Damascus on 13 Ocober 1988. Khreesat stopped at Amman, Jordan, to collect his wife. Khreesat is the senior bomb maker of the PFLP-GC.)

We know that the secret doc alledges that MST-13 timers had been provided to the PFLP-GC organization.

Nothing more is known at this point. But this trip – if it indeed occurred — could very well be the source of the story covered in the Secret doc sent from the King of Jordan to John Major in 1996.

A particularly interesting aspect of this visa is the fact that the paperwork at the Federal Police was handled by Inspector Fluckiger.

Does that name ring a bell?

Inspector Fluckiger met with a MEBO employee (Lumpert) on June 22 1989.

On June 6, 2008, Lumpert told me that he gave a MST-13 timer prototype to Swiss Commissioner Peter Fluckiger

According to Lumpert, Fluckiger requested this device and other material at the demand of a “friendly Intelligence Agency.”

Last night, George Thomson wrote the following comment on this blog:

“During a recent investigation in Switzerland our team managed to get our hands on an official government document which confirms that in June 1989 Swiss Police did receive from a MEBO – source documents and materials in relation to MST timers. THE DOCUMENT GOES ON TO CONFIRM THAT THIS MATERIAL WAS THEN HANDED OVER TO THE AMERICANS.”

REMEMBER: This is one full year BEFORE Super FBI Genius Tom Thurman identified the link between PT/35(b) and MEBO. (June 15 1990). Things are looking up!
