“There was sufficient grounds to suspect a criminal device on that plane,” retired RCMP sergeant Tom Juby, who was an arson investigator assigned to the Swissair file, told CBC’s The Fifth Estate.
“I’m convinced that the investigation was improperly done,” he said.
The flight from New York to Geneva crashed into the Atlantic Ocean on Sept. 2, 1998, killing 229 passengers and crew. The plane carried a Saudi prince, a relative of the former shah of Iran and high profile UN officials. A half a billion dollars of diamonds and gems were also never found.
