House to probe Sukhoi accident
The House of Representatives' Commission V overseeing transportation arranged on Monday a meeting concerning the Sukhoi Superjet 100 accident with transportation institutions.
Officials from the Transportation Ministry and the National Transportation Safety Committee (KNKT) were among the participants at the meeting.
"We will require an explanation from the Transportation Minister regarding the 2009 Law on Transportation because the accident at Mt Salak, Bogor likely happened because the law was violated," Commission V chief Yasti Soepredjo Mokoagow told reporters minutes before the meeting began.
She added that the House's transportation commission would also check updates of the investigation into the accident, which claimed the lives of all of the passengers and crew on board.
The Russian-made commercial aircraft, which was on a promotional flight at the time, slammed into Mt. Salak on May 9, killing 45 people.
