MOSCOW, May 11 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian detectives are flying to Indonesia to the crash site of the Superjet airliner, spokesman for the Russian Investigation Committee Vladimir Markin told Itar-Tass on Friday.
The chairman of the Investigation Committee has made a request in the Indonesian Justice Ministry for the legal assistance in the criminal case over the crash of the Russian airliner Superjet-100, which the main investigation department of the Russian Investigation Committee is investigating.
“The team of Russian detectives already departed for Jakarta, where they intend to involve in the investigation actions, which Indonesian law enforcement agencies are taking. The second group of detectives will fly to Indonesia on May 12, 2012,” Markin said.
He noted that the investigation actions will be taken not only at the airplane crash site, but also in Russia. “In particular, the technical personnel will be interrogated, as the latter have prepared the airliner for the flight, as well as representatives of the Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company, which are engaged in the production of the airliner and the preparations for its operation,” Markin underlined.
