TNT after all

ECR MEPs have turned to the European Commission, the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton, the European Council, and the President of the European Council, Herman Van Rompuy.

ECR MEPs have turned to the European Commission, the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton, the European Council, and the President of the European Council, Herman Van Rompuy with a written question in relation to a special meeting of the Justice and Human Rights Committee in the Polish parliament of December 5, 2012, during which military prosecutors acknowledged that detectors traced TNT particles in the wreckage of the aircraft in Smolensk.

In a recently released statement, the Military Prosecutor’s Office admitted that in addition to TNT, devices detected nitro compounds, octogene (HMX) and hexogen (RDX).

“In light of the exceptional rank and weight of the information provided by military investigators, we have submitted an interpellation, in which we call on the Commission and the Council to respond to this unprecedented declaration of TNT particles.” – said Ryszard Legutko, ECR Vice-Chairman and Polish delegation leader.

ECR MEPs asked the Council and Commission to provide more detail on the position, the recommendations and planned actions/activities in relation to this information. Finally, it was asked, if the Polish government officially decided to seek the help of European Union institutions what form of assistance would be granted and deemed most appropriate.

The written question was submitted and signed by Ryszard Czarnecki, Marek Gróbarczyk, Ryszard Legutko, Konrad Szymanski and Janusz Wojciechowski. The Council and the Commission have six weeks to respond.

Last week, Antoni Macierewicz Polish Member of Parliament and Chairman of the Parliamentary Group set to investigate and establish the causes of the 2010 Polish Air Force Tu-154M crash in Smolensk was invited to an ECR group meeting where he presented to ECR group members, the works and latest results of a team of experts investigating the causes of the Smolensk disaster. On this occasion he asked journalists to spread all concerns and investigative outcomes to-date, and urged the EU to get involved in the Smolensk investigation.
