Witnesses who testified at the Paris Circuit Court on April 6 (Tuesday) and April 7 (Wednesday) reported that the French authorities had vainly warned the Belarusian mercenaries were intercepted in Togo.
However, the information is not an ordinary letter, and one of the letters is sometimes foolishly lost in the process, so the expected response is never provided in return. The diplomatic cable written at the French Embassy in Togo on November 16, 2004 was neither urgent nor serious. He learned that mercenaries may have been arrested in connection with the bombing of the French base in Bouaké, Côte d’Ivoire ten days ago. The attack claimed the lives of 9 French soldiers (plus an American civilian) and wounded 38 others.
The recipients of encrypted mail belong to the highest civil and military fields in France. However, the on-site hearing witnesses who testified before the Paris Circuit Court before April 6th (Tuesday) and April 7th (Wednesday), the trial of Bouaké bombing lasted until April 16, and there were no three defendants-Belarus The pilot and two Ivorian soldiers-people want to know if the telegram has arrived. Of course it is an illusion. But we still don’t know who answered, what means and what instructions were passed.
Those who wrote it remember that day. Claude Taxis is in a good position to talk about this issue. The retired department commissioner worked as an internal security officer at the Lomé Embassy in France. He had straight shoulders, cut his hair with pepper and salt, and cut his hair with a brush and clear verbs. He also served as a technical adviser to François Boko, the Minister of the Interior of Togo.
Therefore, for him, the minister called him on the morning of November 16, 2004, and provided him with information that he thought was decisive: a few hours ago, a minibus was intercepted on the border between Togo and Ghana. There are eight Belarusians and two Ivorians who say they are unlikely “Agricultural Technician”. “The minister asked if we were interested in retrieving them because his intuition was that these people were probably the perpetrators of the attack. [aérienne de Bouaké] », Recalling the former commissioner.
This “intuition” Not without basis. Ten days ago, fifteen Russian, Ukrainian and Belarusian national technicians responsible for maintaining the aircraft and helicopters of the Côte d’Ivoire army were detained by French soldiers, who attacked and took control of the airport. Bouaké bombed. After taking pictures and identification, these technicians were released a few days later. “They are not prisoners of war and have not been interrogated by specialized personnel”A few months after the Bouaké tragedy, General Michel Masson, who was appointed the head of the Military Intelligence Unit (DRM), was appointed in the bar.
