    Accident of Rio-Paris flight - Referral to Criminal Court: Air France reaction

    Air France has just learnt of its possible referral to the Criminal Court in the criminal case relative to the accident of the Rio / Paris flight, whereas the Company has no knowledge of the specific charges likely to be retained against it in court.

    Air France would like to state that before any referral to a court, the law gives parties a period of three months from the notification by the investigating magistrates of the notice of termination of information to file new observations and where appropriate make a request for a dismissal.

    Air France would also like to state that the criminal case cannot be considered on its merits by a court before the Investigating Chamber of the Court of Appeal in Paris has reached a decision on Air France’s request to nullify the expert's report requested by Airbus.
