The resting place of Polish Olympic Committee Chairman killed in Smolensk remains unknown.
Another disaster: M. Handzlik’s body found in P. Nurowski’s grave.
Published: December 10, 2016
There is a clear indication that Mariusz Handzlik, Deputy Secretary of President Lech Kaczyński’s Office, was buried in Piotr Nurowski’s grave. This, however, does not mean that Piotr Nurowski’s remains cen be found in Mariusz Handzlik’s grave. Such revelations have been released by the prosecution’s office following several exhumations of the Smolensk crash victims conducted in November 2016.
The State Prosecution has recently informed that “following the exhumation process, there is strong possibility that one of the graves contained remains of a different victim than the one the grave was intended for. The grave in question was intended for Piotr Nurowski, the Chairman of the Polish Olympic Committee.”
“The exhumation was not performed [easier], because the autopsy was carried out by a Russian team at the request of the Polish prosecution. At that stage it seemed that the prosecutors were conducting a reliable investigation. There was no need for a second autopsy,” explained Andrzej Seremet, the former Prosecutor General responsible for not allowing any autopsies in Poland immediately after the crash.
Wpolityce.pl informed that it is likely there are more victims of the Smolensk crash who have been buried in wrong graves. The prosecution decided to check who rests in Mariusz Handzlik’s grave.
The Polish media attack the current government of Prime Minister Szydlo for ordering exhumations and autopsies of all the victims of the Smolensk crash. “The prosecutors’ decision has been widely criticized as a lack of respect for the remains. However, let me tell you that such lack of respect was shown in Russia. It was in Russia, where cigarette butts were stubbed out in the bodies of our loved ones,” said back in November Piotr Walentynowicz, the grandson of Anna Walentynowicz, who also died in the Smolensk crash.
Mariusz Handzlik was a Director of Foreign Affairs Bureau in the President Lech Kaczynski’s Office from 2006. He was appointed Deputy Secretary of Foreign Affairs on October 9, 2008. He died in the Tu-154M crash in Smolensk on April 10, 2010. He was buried on April 26, 2010, at the Powązki Military Cemetery in Warsaw.

Why did they all fly on the same plane?
Synopsis: January 12, 2013, Toronto, Canada. The wife of the late Deputy-Minister of Culture Tomasz Merta: "What I am about to tell you now, are suspicions - and not even my own - but, rather the [suspicions of the] individuals in the inner-circles of the [Polish] military... I heard a statement that was made - but, I am not taking any responsibility for how credible, or not credible it is. [I heard that] had the generals and journalists' not been re-assigned to different aircraft, it wouldn't have been the Tupolev [Tu-154M], but rather the Casa [transport aircraft] that would have been taken out.
Because the Generals were no longer onboard the Casa, there was no reason for it to get airborne. And for this reason it was the Yak[-40] that flew off to Smolensk. This Casa [transport aircraft] was never examined in any way. It was not subject to any examination. Aside from a single note in the deposition given to the military, no one was interested why this aircraft didn't fly [to Smolensk]. Perhaps, this is someones crazy phantasy, but perhaps it isn't.
Some [Polish] military personnel had suggested, that it [the Casa] had to stay behind at the Okecie military [tarmack], so that the explosives could be removed from it - because they were no longer needed [...] I am only repeating what I was told."
"Disarming" Explosives ...
It is worth for us to retrace the entire process of "disarming" the case of explosive substances at the crash site. It all started with the publication of Cezary Gmyz in "Rzeczpospolita" on October 30, 2012, and information that the detectors, which were used by experts in Smolensk (in late September and October) showed traces of TNT and nitroglycerine.
As it turned out, the journalist was also reporting about the indication of Hexogen. The storm broke. The prosecution denied the publication, and ultimately, the editor-in-chief of "Rzeczpospolita," Cezary Gmyz and two other journalists lost their jobs. The entire editorial staff of one of Poland’s most popular weeklies, "Uważam Rze", was also silenced.
