Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:
Sorry for bombs on Rainbow Warrior
The diver of the French secret service who attached two bombs thirty years ago to the Rainbow Warrior ship has apologized. “This is the right time to show remorse and offer my apologies,” Jean-Luc Kister said in an interview with a French journalist. The attack on the Greenpeace ship killed the Portuguese-Dutch photographer Fernando Pereira.
The Rainbow Warrior was sunk on July 10, 1985 using two bombs in Auckland in New Zealand. The ship was on its way to the island of Mururoa to protest against French nuclear tests in the area. As long as the ship would sail around there, there would be no nuclear weapons tests possible.
Soon after the attack it turned out that it was carried out by the French secret service. …
“I have the blood of an innocent man on my hands,” he [Kister] continues. “It is overwhelming.”
