April 6: added a part of the search warrant to this article
German magazine Capital published at March 29, 2016 an article saying that on March 15 heavily armed policemen raided the house of private detective Josef Resch.
The search warrant took place at the highest German level, namely by the Attorney General (Generalbundesanwalt).
The Attorney General of Germany is in the field of state security the top law enforcement agency of Germany. That makes clear which political significance is attached to the case “Resch”.
Resch , owner of fraud investigation company Wifka, had been charged with investigating the shoot down of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 by an unknown client. The client initially provided 30 million dollars as a reward for information and evidence. Later an additional reward of 17 million US$ was announced. The record-breaking sum even beat the 35 US$ million offered for the capture of Osama bin Laden. Daily Mail was one of many media outlets who published the story.
Dutch newspaper Telegraaf published a couple of articles on Resch. In November 2014 Resch told that he had doubts about the story of German secret service (BND). BND had told politicians that separatists had stolen an Ukraine BUK. Also BND got satellite pictures from the US. Resch told Telegraaf: “Why would BND have pictures while the Dutch investigators do not? And why is BND telling about top secret satellite photos”?
In June 2015 Resch told media” if the truth would come out, the conflict in Eastern Ukraine will rapidly escalate”.
On June 15, 2015, the company Wifka announced on their website the reward was no longer available.
Concerning the investigations solving the crash of Malaysian Airlines flight number MH-17 on July 17, 2014, we disclose that the rewards written out from our client via the company Wifka amounting to
1. 30 million US$ for leads to perpetrators
2. 17 million US$ for leads about attempts at cover-ups from states or state organisations (second Snowden)
Are no longer available for disposition due to substantial means of evidence and adequate status of information delivered to their clients by the company Wifka.
The clients of the company Wifka and Josef Resch want to hereby thank all parties involved.
German Stern magazine (700.000 copies) published an interview with Resch in March 6 2016. Resch told the magazine he does not know who his client was. He also told “There would be even more grief when people know what happened. I am pretty sure about that. Also I am sure that insiders know much more than is made known to the public. He added: “a couple of governments have a problem when more is made known”.
German Magazine Capital published at March 29 2016 a story that the house of private detective/bounty hunter Resch was raided by the German police. The reason for the raid was a suspicion of a warcrime.
This is a part of the search warrant. It is published at the Facebook page of Capital.
According Capital the reason for the raid by the police was: “Saving of documents and notes related to the crash of MH17, saving of contact information which can provide information on the shot down, preferably those from Ukraine, or from the Russian Federation . Also saving of disks and computers . Also in the arrest : It is assumed that “blank documents, documents, addresses or for files that contain more insights about the crime and about possible culprits at the launch (…),” in the private rooms of Resch which are significant for finding the truth “.
A couple of German media reported about the raid. Like Heise.de
Resch told Capital in response to the raid: “When the German prosecutor believes he can find evidence in my house about the shot down, then he does not trust the statements of the German secret service BND. Or the prosecutor believes the person who informed Resch is someone working for the secret service.
Dutch newspaper Telegraaf contacted Resch as well. He did confirm his house was raided by the police. He did not want to answer further questions.
