Christophe de Margerie's four-seat Dassault Falcon business jet, en route to Paris, collided with a snowplough at Moscow's airport Vnukovo late on Monday, caught fire and fell onto the runway. Two pilots and a flight attendant also died in the crash.
Three suspects have been arrested in the case. A Moscow court on Friday sanctioned the arrest of Vnukovo airport leading airfield service engineer Vladimir Ledenev, the third suspect in the Total CEO's jet crash.
Ledenev was overseeing snow clearing work at the airport on the night of the crash.
Vladimir Ledenev is the third suspect arrested in the case of the jet crash that Monday killed four people at Moscow's Vnukovo airport.The judge ruled that while at large Ledenev may use his knowledge of airport services’ work and destroy evidence in the case.
“The court did not establish any fact relieving Ledenev from custody,” Karpov said.
The court’s decision may be appealed with the period of three days, while investigators have 10 days to press official charges against Ledenev.
Earlier on Friday, the court arrested air traffic controller Alexander Kruglov who will remain in custody for at least two months, until December 21.
On Thursday the court arrested the prime suspect in the case. Vladimir Martynenko, a snowplow operator who allegedly caused the crash of the French Falcon jet, was arrested until December 21.
The court ruled in favor of the prosecution after preliminary medical examination results were announced that Martynenko was drunk at the moment of the crash.
Russia’s Investigative Committee spokesman said the level of alcohol found in Martynenko's blood was 0,6 per mille.
