20 March 2004

Two air traffic controllers involved in a near miss between two Japan Airlines (JAL) passenger planes that injured 83 passengers in 2001 will likely be charged by prosecutors. The Tokyo District Public Prosecutors Office has reportedly decided to indict the air traffic controllers without arrest for issuing wrong directions to aircraft that almost resulted in a collision.
