TEHRAN (Dispatches) -- Iran has indicted 10 officials over the shooting-down of a Ukrainian passenger plane in January 2020 that killed all 176 people on board, a military prosecutor said on Tuesday.
In a report published last month, Iran’s civil aviation body blamed the crash on a misaligned radar and an error by an air defense operator. "Indictments have been issued for 10 officials involved in the crash of the Ukrainian plane... and necessary decisions will be taken in court,” Gholam Abbas Torki, the outgoing military prosecutor for Tehran province, said.
