A final report due within weeks from the International Civil Aviation Organisation is expected to single out Belarus authorities as the source of the emailed bomb threats that forced a Ryanair jet to land in the country last year, according to a senior EU official.

The findings will potentially trigger criminal actions in a number of jurisdictions including Ireland.
