Disinfo: JIT is not independent, but under the full control of Western security services

Summary

JIT is not an independent investigative commission, but under the full control of Western security services. The fear that the official investigators might try to cover something up is justified.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the downing of flight MH17. This Sputnik-article takes and presents only one comment of a reader to the topic of MH17 downing. This comment does not give any evidence on why JIT is dependent on Western security services and repeats pro-Kremlin narrative about 'anti-Russian position of JIT' in MH17 investigation. The Joint Investigation Team (JIT) is an independent investigative commission that was established to conduct criminal investigation concerning the downing of flight MH17. The JIT comprises officials from the Dutch Public Prosecution Service and the Dutch police, along with police and criminal justice authorities from Australia, Belgium, Malaysia and Ukraine, where the crash took place. When in a criminal investigation two or more countries are cooperating, there are rules to be followed so that the results of the criminal investigation of the one country can be used in the criminal investigation(s) of the other country or countries. The purpose of the criminal investigation is to establish the facts of the case; determine the truth of what happened; identify those responsible for downing flight MH17 and gather criminal evidence for prosecution. The JIT conclusions were further corroborated by Bellingcat. For a summary of disinformation narratives on the case of MH17 see here.

Greta Thunberg is a prophet of a new totalitarian wave equaling to radical Islam

Greta Thunberg, a sick girl who is as stupid as she is naive, is the prophet of the new totalitarian wave, which is something like radical Islam for the post-Christian West.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about climate change, and an attack on Greta Thunberg. See similar cases here and here. The message perpetuate a disinformation narrative that global warming is a "hoax" perpetrated by special interest groups like green business that stand to benefit from climate hysteria. In fact, the existence of anthropogenic climate change and is a matter of scientific consensus. Only a tiny minority of scientists dispute this consensus: the Earth is warming through the greenhouse effect; human activities - including use of fossil fuels, cutting down rainforests, and farming livestock - are a major cause of the warming; and, unchecked, this rapid warming presents significant risks to human communities and natural systems. We are already seeing impacts from global warming today. No other environmental threat has been subjected to as much scientific research. The EU Member States and the US government has spent billions of dollars on climate science across many agencies and universities. The UN has assembled thousands of scientists to compile and review the latest science and contribute to the publication of five reports since 1990 that have consistently made the consensus deeper and the warnings more urgent. Preventing the dangerous consequences of the climate change is a key priority for the EU.

Greta Thunberg is a mouthpiece used by the lobbyists of green energy giants

The creators and sponsors of this “miracle in braids” have turned up the farce at the UN. Who knows how far they might push this poor teenager. Although she might not be that poor after all […] She is just a mouthpiece used by the lobbyists of green energy giants who demand huge government subsidies.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, based on recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about climate change and Greta Thunberg. In 2018 Greta Thunberg launched the "Fridays For Future" movement, encouraging students to skip school to demand action on climate change from their governments. There is no evidence to suggest links between her and the "green lobby".

Greta Thunberg is a tool of the unelected global bureaucracy

The distorted face and psychopathic manners of Greta Thunberg caused a negative response even from those who still treated the young eco-activist relatively positively. The term “pop-ecofascism” looks to be very useful to describe the ideas promoted by masterminds behind the ill girl. These ideas declare the readiness to sacrifice lives of people and use terrorism-like methods to achieve own ‘environment-related’ goals. Even people that support the need to ‘do something’ with ‘ecology problems’ have a pretty sceptic view towards the new mainstream icon because her image of uneducated fanatic discredits the work needed to be done to solve the existing environment issues. Some even speculate that the girl is used to discredit ‘green movements’. However, most likely, the Greta Thunberg project is just a sign of the brave new world, which the globalists seek to create. At the same time, the unelected global bureaucracy pursues some practical goals with their new tool.

Disproof

A conspiracy theory, presented without evidence. This claim is a conspiracy presented without any evidence. It is recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about climate change, following the narrative that global warming is a "hoax" perpetrated by special interest groups like green business that stand to benefit from "climate hysteria".
