MOSCOW, February 17. /TASS/. Russia’s Prosecutor-General’s Office has handed over to France the copies of more materials of the criminal case linked to the plane crash at Moscow’s Vnukovo airport last October that killed the oil giant Total’s CEO.
The materials that were received during the criminal investigation into the case opened by the French prosecutors were transferred at the meeting of the representatives of the Russian Prosecutor-General’s Office and the French Embassy in Moscow.
The French authorities last time received the copies of the requested documents on January 20.
In October 2014, the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office received a request from the French prosecutors at the Paris Grand Instance Court on legal assistance on a criminal case opened in connection with the Falcon plane crash.
Total's Falcon business jet flying from Moscow to Paris on October 20, 2014 hit a snow plough during takeoff, caught fire and crashed on the runway killing the crew-of-three and company chief executive Christophe de Margerie.
Russia’s Investigative Committee later opened a criminal case into the violation of air traffic and aircraft operation safety rules.
