Bomb threat email cited by Belarus sent after plane was diverted – Swiss email provider

Hamas earlier denied it was aware of or had any connection to any such bomb threat.

A bomb threat referred to by Belarusian government as grounds for forcing a Ryanair flight carrying an opposition journalist to land in Minsk was sent after the plane was diverted, email provider Proton Technologies AG says.

Belarusian officials say they ordered the plane flying in their country’s airspace en route from Athens to Vilnius to land in Minsk on Sunday over an alleged bomb threat from Hamas, Reuters reports.

Hamas has denied it was aware of or had any connection to any such bomb threat, while EU leaders have accused Belarus government of a state-sponsored piracy effort.

On Wednesday, the Dossier Center research group published an email with the purported Hamas threat. The email was sent 24 minutes after the Belarusian authorities warned the crew there was a bomb threat.

Proton confirmed the message was sent after the plane was diverted.

“We haven’t seen credible evidence that the Belarusian claims are true,” the Swiss company said in a statement. “We will support European authorities in their investigations upon receiving a legal request.”

  • “The email was sent 24 minutes after the Belarusian authorities warned the crew there was a bomb threat.”

    Meaning that Luka fabricated this bomb threat, or his buddy Putin. Or maybe Luka has a gift to look into the future. Now that Luka’s house of cards is collapsing, I expect Switzerland will soon become a US puppet, but Muscovy have to tread careful with the Swiss, a lot of Russian money in Swiss banks.

    Man, it’s always the same!
    The Ruskies (mafia Ruskies and Belarus Ruskies) do something bad. They create a fake story made of lies about it. They get caught lying. They denounce those who caught them lying and lie some more. Those lies are also proven to be lies and so yet more lies are created to help denounce others who caught them lying and calling them liars in return.
    In the end, nobody knows what is a lie and what is not a lie except those who have sharp minds (like us on here). Actually, it is quite easy; when a Ruskie opens his foul mouth, it’s a lie.
