Pan Am mystery LOCKERBIE: It was South Africa!...same as with Olof Palme
The revelation a few days ago had an explosive effect: two senior people in the "dirty tricks" department of the apartheid ancien regime said independently in court, and while being filmed, that Sweden's Olof Palme had been the victim of a South African murder plot in February 1986.
Truly sensational: a big murder mystery appeared finally to have been solved!
Swedes labelled 'arch-enemies'
All of which helped explain an even bigger terrorist murder mystery: that South Africa was also behind the downing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie in Scotland in December 1988.
Kronen Zeitung was given access to insider information from Sweden's Social Democratic Party which confirmed that it was neither Gaddafi, nor Iran, nor Syria that bombed the US jumbo jet, but instead that – as with Olof Palme as well as the Lockerbie bombing – the trail leads to the same plotters: the South African apartheid regime!
South African 'dirty tricks'
Seated on the jumbo jet was Bernt Carlsson, a very close colleague of Olof Palme, who had been Secretary-General of the Socialist International and Palme's special adviser for South Africa, who was regarded as an 'arch-enemy' by the apartheid regime.
There were 'good' reasons why the South African secret services wanted those two Swedish Social Democrats dead: the dyed-in-the-wool anti-apartheid Swedes were alleged to be supplying arms, via socialist routes, to the African National Congress (ANC). These had to be secret operations because, officially, the Socialist International only offered non-military aid to the South African freedom fighters of the ANC and SWAPO.
Palme & Co were regarded as peaceniks.
Panic by the apartheid regime
Interestingly, Pan Am 103 was conveying Bernt Carlsson to the historic signing of the Namibia Independence Agreement at United Nations headquarters in New York. Bernt Carlsson was to have been the UN Governor of Namibia. This diplomatic political coup and the arms deliveries were seen by the apartheid regime as a deadly threat.
The bomb on Pan Am 103 had been hidden in a cassette recorder. It is of note that Bernt Carlsson was allegedly in the habit of always carrying a tape recorder with him, and of surreptitiously recording conversations with his interlocutors. This was one of the main reasons that Willy Brandt, the Socialist International president, was said to have wanted Bernt Carlsson to stand down in 1983.
Having been removed from the Socialist International, Carlsson continued with secret underground contacts.
It would have been easy for South African secret service agents, who had infiltrated Sweden's anti-apartheid movement, to exchange Carlsson's tape recorder in a hotel room against one containing the bomb. And then placing it inside one of those 'ubiquitous' Samsonite suitcases, so beloved by the peripatetic Bernt Carlsson.
