Open Letter to the Swedish government
"Recently we visited your country again.
It had to do with the 25th “anniversary” of the Palme-killing and possible commemorations, but mainly with the “climate” around the investigation in which our efforts got no attention. Unjust, from our point of view and astonishing in connection with 25 years of investigation without result !
But first: who are we and what’s our interest ?
We, Elzo Springer, journalist and Dolf van Soest, former leader of a Murder Squad in Holland, worked many years on a partly solved Dutch murder case (Mahmut Bilgili, a Kurdish lawyer/1987) and the analysed link between that case and the Olof Palme killing (1986).
As it’s undisputed that the Bilgili-case has a PKK nature (we identified 5 Kurdish suspects), the consequence of the proven link is that the Palme-killing is also a PKK-Kurdish affair !
Because of that observation we had a lot of talks in Sweden during many years.
Time and time again we were confronted with the position that the possibility of a PKK-involvement in the Palme-case is ruled out by police-investigation !
In reality – many insiders/experts we met, agree – that investigation against the PKK has prematurely been stopped by clashes between the Prosecutor’s Office and the Palme-team leadership (January 87).
This means that nothing was proven, neither guilt nor innocence.
A corresponding reality is that the unexpected release of the suspects not only gave reason for a big party but also formed the go ahead to find out who was responsible for the suspicions/arrests.
3 weeks later (!) Mahmut Bilgili, who was knowledgeable about PKK-activities, was executed (killed after a violent interrogation).
- Further investigations after the clashes in 1987 didn’t take place or had no honest chance. It took a year f.e. before team members went to Turkey to have talks with Abd. Öcalan who withdraw his original denying of a PKK role in the Palme-murder
- happily the period of “pulling the wool over people’s eyes” (with the help of Chr. Pettersson) is over.
- we too applaud initiatives to reopen the Palme-case…… with a broad outlook ! The government than can make clear if they want or are allowed to solve the case.
We are ready to give more explanation.
