Lamberz had an accident in Libya deadly

Werner Lamberz visited together with Erich Honecker and Willi Stoph and further GDR delegation members to 6. March 1978 Libya. It concerned negotiations with the Libyan government over the grant from credits and an agreement, which planned the financing of technique exports of the GDR into third countries by Libya. These agreements were never consistently converted by its accidental death. It negotiated also with Muammar el-Gaddafi in a camp. On the way back from the camp to Tripoli came according to Libyan data of the helicopters with Lamberz on board in wobbling and fell. No crew member survived. The cause a defect at the rotor was supposed. Whether it was a notice or an accident, could not be clarified until today exactly. Possibly the notice - if it one was - applied for Gaddafi themselves, because neither flying time nor helicopters were certain to short before the departure. With him the ZK-department manager for international connections died Paul Markowski.
