New Investigation: Estonia Ferry Disaster

Published torsdag 3 mars 2005 kl 12.30

Estonia’s government formed a commission to investigate the shipment of military equipment aboard the ferry Estonia in the weeks before it sank in 1994, killing 852 people.

The Swedish military acknowledged in December that it had used the ferry to transport military technology from the Baltic states, but not on the night the ferry sank in stormy seas. The military here also says no weapons or explosives were ever transported on the ship.

While an independent Swedish investigator confirmed that there was no military shipment on board the night the ferry sank, an Estonian government spokesperson said the new commission will investigate those claims as well.
