“Information of the type requested is the missing link that makes the present picture incomplete, and its conspicuous absence from the record means that conclusions about the cause of the crash cannot yet be reached. South Africa, the UK and the US must be almost certain to hold important undisclosed information.”
Tanzanian lawyer Mohamed Chande Othman — UN Report (October 8 2019)
In a report released on Monday (October 7 2019) by current secretary-general António Guterres, Tanzanian lawyer Mohamed Chande Othman wrote that he will need more time to finish his review of the case because US, Britain and SA are not responding to his questions. Follow us on Twitter: @INTEL_TODAY
In the conclusion of the report, Othman made four recommendations: To continue the investigation, to again urge countries to appoint an independent person to determine whether relevant information about the crash exists, to have the next investigator report at the end whether countries complied, “including an observation as to whether any inference may be drawn as a result of non-compliance,” and to ensure the U.N. continues to work to make key documents publicly available online.

Guterres has backed Othman’s request for more time. It is now up to the UN General Assembly to decide whether to extend the investigation, and if Othman or another person should lead it.
Justifying his request for an extension, Othman mentioned the likelihood that UN member states intercepted communications related to the crash, as well as the existence of Katangan air assets that could have attacked the secretary-general’s plane.
Although the report mentions the CX-52 [cryptographic device used by Hammarskjöld ], it appears that the UN investigators did not interview the current managers of CRYPTO AG and they did not request any help from Switzerland.
“18. Communications sent from the CX-52 cryptographic machine used by Hammarskjöld appear to have been intercepted by British and United States signals and intelligence agencies as a result of a secret interception and decryption setting that those agencies held that enabled them to intercept surreptitiously.”
Although the CX-52 cryptographic machine is a central piece of evidence in this case, the report mentions it only once and all indicate that the investigators underestimate its significance.
Considering that CRYPTO AG founder Boris Hagelin betrayed the UN allowing the NSA to read in real-time all their communications, you would think that the UN investigators would pay a bit more attention to this device…
The report cites the presence of foreign forces, including pilots and intelligence agents, on the ground at the time of the crash.
Although it mentions specifically the Belgian mercenary Jan van Risseghem, it is very clear that the UN investigators are ignoring the fact that Belgian State Security Services — VSSE — have provided Jan Van Risseghem with a fake alibi.
There is no doubt that this UN report makes a few good points. But it is also very clear that this document is a brick short of a load. The few experts who are still following this case are greatly disappointed.
Dag Hammarskjöld — US, UK, South Africa still withholding crucial information
