The Death Boat on Lake Maggiore, a Dutch ferry built in 1982, could accommodate a maximum of 15 passengers: but there were 8 more on board, women and men, mostly from the Italian and Israeli Mossad secret services. The difficulties in the maneuverability of the vehicle, even in normal conditions, and the storm led to the tragedy with the death of four of its occupants.
In fact, at 7:20 p.m. on Sunday, May 28, this “floating house”, a 15-meter-long “floating house”, with 23 passengers on board, perhaps should not have moved far from the Sesto Calende dock, in the province of Varese, but to stay close to the coast and therefore in a favorable position before possible rescue operations before the sudden worsening of bad weather.
to know ms
In addition, the weather forecasts, which were not read or were underestimated, heralded a progressive worsening (at Malpensa airport the planes that were supposed to take off remained parked on the runway) and announced the risk of even more critical events.
The storm, which would have included a waterspout and bearer of gusts of wind between 70 and 90 kilometers per hoursome speculate even higher than 100, I tipped over the hull in the space of a few seconds causing the death of four people.
Tiziana Barnobi y Claudio Alonziintelligence service agents, 53 and 62 years old, respectively, (she with one child and he with two) and Shimoni Erez53, born in Israel who allegedly served in the Mossady Anna Bozhkova50 years old, a Russian woman from the city of Bryansk, who was in Italy with unlimited residence permit and wife of the patrn Claudio Carminatiare the four fatalities of the sinking.
Carminati, 10 years older than his wife, with extensive experience in various commercial activities, from clothing stores to pastry shops, has an excellent command of the Bulgarian language from previous jobs in Sofa as well as French, he was driving the boat this Sunday.
The trip across the lake was not planned, but rather occurred because, after some meetings in Lombardy to exchange information and documents, the Israelis had missed the return plane and they would have decided to extend the stay over the weekend, until they returned to their country on Monday, May 29, according to one of the unofficial versions.
Taking advantage of the friendship with Carminati, it is unknown if on the Italian or foreign side, someone had proposed the journey over the waters. The result of the investigation by the Public Ministry of Busto Arsizio, led by Carlo Nocerino and the carabinieri of the Varese Provincial Command, under the command of Colonel Gianluca Piasentin, could trigger serious legal consequences for the boss (including the charge of homicide), owner together with his company wife Love Lake srl. newly created and owner of the boat.
On April 5, in the city of Alessandria, in the office of notary Aldo Mariano, the couple ratified the creation of the company for the “organization of excursions”to “boat accommodation activities” and “management of hotels and non-hotel facilities, and in particular of owners, bed & breakfasts, holiday homes and apartments, mountain refuges and religious reception houses”, with a capital share of 475 euros.
The autopsies will reveal the cause of death because, in addition to drowning, it is not excluded that one or more victims were trapped in the sunken hull, at a depth of sixteen meters.
From sailors to residents and boat owners on Lake Maggiore they sailed, despite the dangers of weather, to the site of the incident, some 120-150 meters from the coast.
cries for help
“I heard cries for help, desperate cries. I saw many swimming in the icy water,” declared Franco Lora, a retiree.
“Immediately get out on the boatbut the boat was no longer visible, it had already been swallowed by the lake. pieces of wood and chairs that floated around”recounted Daniele Piccaluga, owner of the shipyard of the same name.
Advertising for Claudio Carminati’s business on Lake Maggiore, a popular tourist destination in the southern Alps, included that “we sail even in case of rain “.
It is not ruled out that there were hull modifications to add additional space for passengers, at the top of the ship, a point that the ongoing investigation will determine as well as whether those changes were in accordance with the regulations or not, even if they could have amplified the impact of the storm. The investigation does not present itself as easy.
In the meantime, the possibility of real or suspected secrets linked to the Mossad missions in Lombardy, with the reconstruction of the days before the trip. Given the profiles of the victims, the roles and the type of work they carried out, there are many questions in this investigation that goes beyond the sinking of a ship in Lake Maggiore due to unfavorable weather conditions.
The foreign minister of israel iHe indicated that one of the deceased is an Israeli citizen, in his fifties, “former member of the Israeli security forces”informs Afp.
A statement from the Italian security services said that the two deceased Italians worked in the intelligence services of his country and that they were participating in a private trip.
The 16-meter-long boat capsized on Sunday afternoon off Lisanza, at the southern end of the lake, after being caught by a sudden storm and strong winds.
The president of the Lombardy region, Attilio Fontana, lamented on Sunday night “a very serious incident”, caused by a “eddy”, reports Afp.
The survivors were rescued from the water by other boats or They managed to swim to shore.
The ship was carrying Italian and foreign tourists, and it quickly sank.
