MOSCOW, May 10 (Itar-Tass) — The Investigative Committee (SK) of the Russian Federation has opened a criminal case over the crash of a Russian Sukhoi Superjet airliner in Indonesia, its spokesman Vladimir Markin said on Thursday.
Markin said the criminal case was opened under part 3 of Article 263 of the Russian Criminal Code (violation of rules of air safety and aircraft operation).
According to Markin, the committee “considers at the present moment sending to Jakarta criminal investigators from the SK’s general forensic directorate, who will be able to attend investigatory actions of Indonesian law enforcement agencies”.
The spokesman said investigators will have to check the procedure of crew training for the flight as well as the technical condition of the plane itself before it left for Jakarta.
Besides, technical personnel preparing the plane for the flight and representatives from Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company who participated in designing the plane and preparing it for the operation will be interviewed, Markin added.
