ET409: Airline accuses authorities of misleading investigation


Ethiopian Airlines chief Girma Wake accused Lebanese authorities on Wednesday of making misleading comments on the cause of the Ethiopian plane’s crash in January. Wake said that his main concern is with “the authorities who come out with guesses every morning,” rather than the investigators. “I am not happy with the way they are handling it,” he added.

Public Works and Transportation Minister Ghazi Aridi and Information Minister Tarek Mitri both repeatedly ruled out sabotage, but the African airliner has refused to reject any factor, including foul play.

“I can see the sensitivity of the issue in Lebanon. To calm down their own people they can make such statements. That’s not the right way to act. What they are saying is misleading,” he added. (Now Lebanon)
