French spy speaks after 32 years over attack on Rainbow Warrior

32 years after the bombing the Rainbow Warrior sank, have French and New Zealand media the French spy Christine Cabon found. She was at the time when Greenpeace infiltrated.

Cabon wants, no apologies, but says that all the soldiers are sometimes “in situations that they had not desired.”

Cabon occurred if the environmentalist Frederique Bonlieu. On board the Rainbow Warrior, the Dutch flagship of Greenpeace, she played the crucial information to her colleagues of the French secret service that the attack beraamden.

On 10 July 1985, brought two bombs to the flagship, which was used in protests against French nuclear testing on the atoll Mururoa, sunk in Auckland in New Zealand. The Dutch photographer, of Portuguese origin, Fernando Pereira, came as the only to life.


Cabon fled a few weeks before the attack to Israel. She currently lives in a village in the south of France.

The now 66-year-old Cabon, who at the time of the attack 33 years old, speaks of a “trauma for New Zealand that a friendly country to them attacked.” Let them know that her work was done and no excuses. “Perhaps there are acquaintances that I have a message to send, people I in New Zealand met. But not to the outside world.”
