The following is the most recent news article about the aftermath of the tragedy.


French classification society Bureau Veritas and German shipbuilder Meyer Werft are back in court contesting responsibility for the Estonia shipwreck 25 years after 852 people lost their lives in one of the worst maritime disasters of the 20th century.

Survivors and families of victims took their claims for over €40m in compensation to a French court in Nanterre, a suburb of Paris where Bureau Veritas is based.
It has been alleged that there was a cover-up of the circumstances of the sinking.



What is the reason for the difference in results between the scientific tests carried out by official investigators and the lab tests carried out on debris that was illegally recovered from the wreck of the MS Estonia and cited by German freelance journalist Jutta Rabe, on whose book the film, "Baltic Storm", starring Gretta Scacchi as "Julia Reuter", a fictional version of Jutta, and Juergen Prochnow and Donald Sutherland?



What reason is there to believe that there was weapons-grade hazardous material taken from a Russian military base being smuggled along with a defecting scientist to Sweden?
