BANGKOK, May 21 (Itar-Tass) — Head of the Indonesian national police’s Disaster Victims Identification Division Anton Castilani recommended to the relatives of the victims in the crash of the Russian airliner Sukhoi Superjet-100 to refrain from watching the remains, if they are in a fragile psychological condition.
Castilani also noted that the identification department will provide a psychologist on Tuesday to help the relatives of the air crash victims. “Along with the aid to the families to overcome the aftermaths of the tragedy, a psychologist will also assess the condition of relatives and will decide whether they can see the remains,” he noted.
Castilani noted that the relatives will be able to see the remains of the air crash victims after the body reconstruction is over. The relatives will be permitted to visit a mortuary at the national police hospital in Jakarta after 13:00 local time (10:00 Moscow time) on Tuesday. A ceremony to hand over the SSJ-100 crash victims to their relatives will be held at the airbase Halim Perdanakusuma on May 23.
Chief of the medical department of the Indonesian national police Brigadier General Musadeq Ishak told a press conference in Jakarta on Sunday that the identification department of the Indonesian national police completed the identification of the remains of all people, which the Superjet airliner was carrying. “The identification is over, all air crash victims were identified,” he said. Ishak noted that 14 women and 31 men were identified.
The Russian airliner Sukhoi Superjet-100 crashed during a demonstration flight on May 9. The airliner crashed into the rock of the Salak Mountain in the western part of the Java Island. According to available reports, the airliner was carrying 45 people, including eight Russian citizens, 35 Indonesian citizens, a Frenchman and a US citizen.
