Iran has charged 10 officials with the UIA plane crash

Iran has charged 10 officials with shooting down a Ukrainian passenger plane in January 2020, killing all 176 people on board, a military prosecutor said on Tuesday.

In a report released last month, Iran’s civil aviation body blamed the crash for improperly installed radar and an error by an air defense operator. Ukraine and Canada criticize the report as insufficient.

“Indictments have been filed against 10 officials involved in the crash of a Ukrainian plane … and the necessary decisions will be made in court,” ISNA news agency spokesman Golam Abbas Torquay told ISNA news agency. He did not provide more details.

The Iranian Revolutionary Guards shot down the flight of Ukraine International Airlines on January 8, 2020, shortly after departure from Tehran airport.

The Iranian government later said the firefight was a “catastrophic mistake” when they were on high alert in a regional confrontation with the United States.
