WARSAW, April 08. /ITAR-TASS/. Polish prosecutors will likely close their investigation next year into the 2010 plane crash which killed Polish president Lech Kaczynski, his wife and 94 other passengers in western Russia.
“We are trying to draw the time limits for our investigation, and they become clearer every day. A few months - this is the most appropriate deadline," Prosecutor General Andrzej Seremet told a radio station on Tuesday.
Seremet said the investigation, probing into a crash which downed the TU-154 aircraft near the Russian city of Smolensk, should be wound up in 2015 though inquiries continued in both Russia and Poland and no deadline had been set.
Polish authorities may even close the case if they failed to have the aircraft wreckage repatriated, Seremet added.
Investigators had ruled out the possibility of a bomb explosion on board and no further accusations might be made, the general said, adding that technical failure and pilot error remained suspected causes.
