Through the process, which begins with the filing of indictment by the Smolensk family, there is another chance to raise important questions about Smolensk and seek new answers. There is one condition however. Arabski and four other officials must feel that their security and freedom are really at risk. Only then they can begin to say what they really know, or give leads into new threads of the case. If Arabski and the other defendants feel pressured, then they may begin to talk more than the rulers of Poland and the prosecutors, who investigate the 10/04 case making sure that nothing is found, would like.
It seems that now there may be another chance to play the Arabski card. At the moment, he has lost his patrons and principals. Tusk is in Brussels, Sikorski is pushed aside, and Kopacz is so incompetent that she is busy trying to rescue her government.
Those who care not only about punishing negligent officials but also attempt to explain what really happened in Smolensk now will have a new opportunity. Thanks to a brave and admirable decision of the Smolensk families to take on the burden of the Polish state and sue responsible officials for the Smolensk tragedy, a new opportunity arises to advance the investigation into the Smolensk crash. Although the Polish government came up with a list of negligent actions of various government officials, no one was ever put on trial for contributing to the death of 96 Poles, including presidents, generals, politicians, and others VIPs.
The white collar crimes that led to the death of President Kaczynski are of a low-level social harm in the Third Polish Republic. Only the Smolensk families are determined to see the accountability for this crime. They act against the entire power structure in Poland.
Their private complaint represents a further proof of the courage of the suffering families and another disgrace to the Third Republic. It is also a valuable opportunity to examine whether Mr. Arabski is a useful idiot or a co-conspirator in a shocking assassination plot?
Tomasz Arabski is one of the darkest characters when it comes to preparations that the Prime Minister's Office conducted before April 10, 2010 flight to Smolensk. His suspicious behavior and actions taken long before April 10, 2010 were like a declaration of war against the President of the Republic of Poland. In connection with the April 10, 2010 visit, he emerged dangerously close to plotting with the Russians against Lech Kaczynski.
Today, a possibility emerges that Arabski along with four other officials of the Prime Minister’s Office be held responsible for obvious irregularities, violations of law, inaction and negligence. Also the opportunity emerges to force Arabski to disclose and explain hidden details of the talks with Russia and the preparations for the flight of 10/04.
Arabski as a politician from the immediate circle of Donald Tusk lead himself a fight against Lech Kaczynski. He denied the airplane to the President when the President as the highest representative of Poland needed to fly to Brussels in order to take part in the summit of the European Union.
A question arises whether this war over the airplane and the attempt to deprive the President of his constitutional prerogatives was related to strategy led jointly by the Tusk government and Putin? Are suspicious preparations for the flight to Smolensk linked with the earlier campaign of vilifying President Kaczynski and the massive attacks in Lech Kaczynski? Who made the decision to destroy President Kaczynski? Was this war against the President a brainchild of the government, or had someone suggested it to the government?
These are just some questions that the defendant Arabski should respond to. Perhaps once again...
The former chief of the Chancellery but it is also one of the closest to the then Prime Minister Tusk figure. It's fair to guess then that he, therefore, has the knowledge about the actions of Tusk.
What was the content of the discussions between Tusk and Putin on the pier in Sopot, Poland on September 1, 2009? With what understanding did Tusk undertake the diplomatic Russian game against President Kaczynski? On whose behalf Arabic conducted secret negotiations with Russian officials before 10/04/2010? What was decided in secret talks one to one? What were the first reactions of the ruling group towards the tragedy? What was discussed in the first moments after the tragedy? What is behind the famous photograph, disclosed by the " wSieci," showing a smiling Tusk and Putin on the night of the crash?

The trip to Smolensk was expected to highlight Russia finally admitting culpability in the massacre, after long having blamed it on the Germans, an atrocity they had tried to conceal for over 70 years.
As for the reception committee, it had different ideas. Putin wasn’t looking forward to such an occasion. Into this poisonous reception brew was President Kaczynski’s well-known public criticism of Moscow and Putin, a habit that has ended the lives of others within Russia – and abroad. A few discouraging Russian requirements – that Kaczynski could not attend in any official capacity – did not halt the Poles. Kaczynski would go anyway on non-official, “personal” business. To Russians, such a distinction would be meaningless, not lessening the possible international excoriation of such an event. A problem ripe for a modern, Russian solution: a tragic, ‘natural’ accident.
2014 Smolensk Crash Investigation Update by Maria Szonert Binienda
Early morning on April 10, 2010, the Polish Governmental Airplane Tu-154M (“Polish Air Force One”) departed from Warsaw, Poland, to Smolensk, Russia, carrying on board the highest level delegation of the Republic of Poland for the commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the Katyn Massacre. The official delegation consisted of the President of Poland, First Lady, all members of the Central Command of the Polish Armed Forces, parliamentary, government and Church officials, and representatives of the families of the Katyn victims. Upon entering the airspace of the Military Airdrome “Severny” in Smolensk, Russia, the Polish pilot made one reconnaissance approach to landing. At the decision altitude, he chose not to land and issued a command to “go around.” Seconds later, the Polish Air Force One crashed. The entire Polish delegation of the highest level perished less than a mile from the Severny Airdrome in Smolensk, Russia. All 96 people on board were killed; there were no survivors ("Smolensk Crash").
