The author, TV-editor and investigative journalist Guido Grandt has published a new book about the death in October 2008 of Jörg Haider. Grandt is not convinced by the accident thesis - he is convinced that Haider was murdered.
Mr. Grandt, in your new book Mordkomplott Jörg Haider [murder plot against Jörg Haider] you once again deepen the thesis that former FPÖ chief Jörg Haider was not “killed in an car accident”, but “murdered”. What new findings have you been able to uncover?
Grandt: In the course of my research, I received material from the party Bündnis Zukunft Östereich (BZÖ) Kärnten, which until now were not presented to me. For example, the prosecutor in Klagenfurt classified the car report regarding the ‘VW Phaeton accident’ and Haider’s autopsy as ‘secret’.
I have published both documents in my book, which in my opinion speak a clear language: Here, a murder happened and was covered up. The contradictions are so striking that new investigations should therefore be initiated.
Another example: VW experts were not allowed to conduct an extensive investigation into Haider’s VW Phaeton, although the prosecutor’s office officially spoke of a “thorough professional” investigation of the car wreck.

The original quote from a VW spokesman from Germany, reads: ‘Our people were allowed to look at the car from the outside, but did not examine it from the inside. We offered our help, but it was only partially accepted by the authorities!’
There were also unexplained changes to the scene, ‘sloppy’ forensics, contradictory testimonies. In particular there are contradictory descriptions of Jörg Haider’s injuries. Witnesses I interviewed in August 2019 say something very different than the of the ‘official’ story.
In response to my current and relevant inquiry to Haider’s autopsy, instead of providing answers, a 15-member law firm was sent to intimidate me – but which did not work [also documented in the book].
Ultimately, Haider was embalmed without the consent of the bereaved, his last blood samples were destroyed. And two mysterious deaths, apparently suicides, play a role in this context: namely the deaths of Manfred D, chief investigator in the case of Haider and Eugen S, city police chief of Klagenfurt, who wanted to pass important information to my informant.
Many other facts also speak of a political murder, an assassination. But to list all of them here is beyond the scope of the interview, but they are all in my new book. In fact, I also have information that speaks in favor of a targeted assassination attempt that I cannot publish because my whistleblowers are actively at risk and have already been threatened. This alone clearly speaks of a murder!
Who had a motive to murder or facilitate the murder of Haider?
Grandt: I’m convinced that a network of politics, business, intelligence and Freemasons was involved in Haider’s mysterious death, causing it to be initiated and executed, even though it ultimately lacks legal proof.
The Carinthian governor Jörg Haider had many opponents, some speak of ‘enemies’; whether in his own country, in the European Union, in the USA or in Israel, at banks and lodge brothers.
Many scandals surrounding highly confidential secret service operations prove political killings. The backers often act so covertly, so secretly, that the traditional services do not know anything about their existence or their actions. Under these conditions, the skepticism of many critics with regard to political influence is quite understandable.

Ultimately, the political establishment is always concerned with two things – money and votes. Money to cement their own power; votes to get to this power in the first place. Emeritus professor and political scientist Wilhelm Hennis once said: ‘To understand why our parties have become so excessively greedy for money, we must understand that they wage a daily war – all, without distinction, against us, the people across the country. Every voter should be caught, so that he puts his cross on the ballot where it should be. Only in the ruthlessness of fundraising to replenish the war chest, our parties differ at most a little. This war has already resulted in fatalities: Jürgen Möllemann and Uwe Barschel in any case.’
I also would mention the Carinthian governor Jörg Haider! Consequently, I wrote: ‘We must finally understand that security agencies are not there to protect us from any danger, but only the government, the power elite of a particular country. The “unknown grey men”, as Princess Diana once put it, had also struck on October 11, 2008: on the Loiblpass federal highway in the village of Lambichl, only a few minutes’ drive away from the Carinthian capital Klagenfurt. This time, however, the victim was not a young Welsh princess who had become dangerous to the establishment, but a provincial governor from Carinthia who was preparing for his brilliant election victory not only to unhinge Austria but all of Europe. Because he wanted to eliminate the old political order. Instead, he was eliminated!’
Do you think the evidence indicates the work of intelligence agencies?
Grandt: For me, after reviewing the entire body of material that I have and that I have also published in my book, the so-called “accident” was clearly an assassination, behind which secret services also stand. Everything indicates that Haider’s vehicle was manipulated before or during the fatal drive. This is usually the specialty of intelligence agencies, as I have also proved.
Which intelligence services could that be?
Grandt: I cannot and will not say that at this point, because of course, assumptions are only guesses.
The official report said that Haider was rushing to his death after a visit to a gay bar. Does such a “character assassination” – the contempt for the dead – also belong to the strategy of a murder plot?
Grandt: Yes, definitely! The widespread cover story of Jörg Haider’s “accident” for investigators, media, justice and politics, was about the heavily drunk Haider, who directly exists a gay pub, racing at twice the allowed speed to his death. The logical conclusion points to: Gay + alcoholic + speeder = death. However, this officially disseminated story does not match my research! But yes, this was deliberately spread and adopted by all media completely uncritically.
Europe today has many successful right-wing populist politicians: Alexander Gauland of the AfD, Marine Le Pen of the RN or Matteo Salvini of the Lega. In your opinion, are these politicians also at risk?
Grandt: In my opinion and clearly: Yes! Political killings have always existed and will continue to exist. Right and left populist parties are rising everywhere in Europe today, following the motto: ‘Those who harbor no feelings for their own people can not be surprised if voters send their own government packing.’
And that is exactly what they are doing in many places, thus becoming a threat to the current political establishment. This, too, is what this book is about, it reminds everyone of what happens when you oppose this establishment and its network.
Inevitably, the question arises: For example, in Germany, will those responsible for the Alternative for Germany (AfD) or in the Alpine republic those of the Freedom Party of Austria (FPÖ) also have to fear that they will somehow be “eliminated”?
This question is answered by the book, but above all, political murders have always existed and will continue to exist. Those who fly too close to the sun, will be burned. The EU policy cartel neither forgets nor forgives.
It does not always have to be an assassination, because you can ‘remove’ the unpleasant opponent by other means, such as in the case of Heinz-Christian or ‘HC’ Strache, head of the FPÖ, vice-chancellor and opposition leader in the Austrian parliament in May 2019 with the so-called ‘Ibiza Affair’.
Mr. Grandt, thank you for the interview.
