Around mid August 2016 Russian media started to publish news on MH17. The message by all newsstations was the same: Bellingcat lied and falsified evidence, like this article by Kremlin paid Russia Today wants the reader to believe. The news seems to be related to the September 28 pressconference of the Dutch prosecutor.
Almost all of this propaganda is not copied by Western press. However there is one exception and that is the story of a German former private detective Josef Resch. Newspapers in Germany, the Netherlands , Belgium and the UK reported about Resch.
It could be Russia will reveal the story of Resch at or close before September 28 when the Dutch prosecutor will have a press conference.
Private detective Josef Resch was contracted by an unknown client to find information on what happened to MH17. Resch found someone who told the client of Resch information that was so interesting his client paid a reward worth $47 million of Dollars for that information.
My strong believe this is a Russian secret service operation to confuse public opinion in Europe.
There are a number of blogposts about Resch on this site. Some links in this blogpost.
While Resch was not supposed to know what was told, he secretly listened to the conversation between informant and client which took place in the house of Resch.
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”. Suggesting Ukraine is behind the shot down.
Around mid July an unknown person dropped documents in the mailbox of Resch. The documents indicate Ukraine was behind the shot down. Resch believed these documents are genuine. Telegraaf reported about this here.
This could lead to two conclusions:
- Resch is used by Russia as a messenger
- The private conversation secretly overheard by Resch was indeed about Ukraine being responsible for the shot down.
Dutch prosecutor wants to know what Resch knows. First the prosecutor requested German authorities to raid the house of Resch. Then a Swiss bank safe was opened by Swiss police. And now Resch is put under pressure by German prosecutor to tell what he knows. If he refuses he will be fined or go into jail.
Why is Dutch prosecutor so interested in the story of Resch?
You might be wondering why the Dutch prosecutor is so interested in the story of Resch. Very likely because they want to make sure in a court case the defense has no nasty surprises. Prosecutor and JIT wants to make sure the conversation overheard by Resch was a nonsense story intended for propaganda reasons.
At September 28 we will know what kind of evidence JIT has and how strong the evidence is,
The informant who was paid millions of Dollar spoke perfect German. He did not talk about the actual shot down but about what happened after. This reduces the chance the informant was an Ukraine man with inside knowledge of a false flag operation.
The story of Resch will not have impact when it is made public after September 28. At September 28 JIT will very likely announce the BUK missile was launched from a field south of Snizhne. This field was 100% certain under control by the separatists. I strongly believe the evidence presented by JIT will be very convincing.
So if Russia wants to confuse people in Western countries, it will have to make public the content of the conversation which Resch listen secretly to before September 28.
