The Swiss e-mail provider Proton Technologies AG said that the letter threatening to blow up the Ryanair plane was sent after the dispatchers of the Minsk airport forced the plane to land in Belarus. Reported by Reuters.
“We have not seen reliable evidence that Belarus’s allegations are true. We will support the European authorities in their investigation after receiving a legal request,” the Swiss company said in a statement.
Earlier, the American edition of The Daily Beast came to the same conclusion following an investigation conducted in cooperation with the Dossier Center (Mikhail Khodorkovsky’s project) and Newslines.
Investigators received the original e-mail, which, according to the self-proclaimed President of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, was sent by the Palestinian group Hamas.
Journalists reported that the letter was sent 24 minutes after the crew was informed about the alleged mining.
