Spanish judge: firms must compensate on crashed hire plane
10 February 2006

Three companies involved in the hire of a Yakovlev 42 plane that crashed in Turkey in 2003 should pay up to EUR130,000 in compensation to each of the victims’ relatives, a judge ruled. The judge held the airline UM Air, a UK air charter company and the Ukrainian reinsurance company all liable to pay compensation. The Yak-42 was hired to fly Spanish soldiers home from peacekeeping duties in Afghanistan. (AP)
