Indonesian air traffic controllers leave in fear of prosecution
2 March 2009

Nearly 30 experienced Indonesian air traffic controllers have left their jobs to look for work abroad amid fears they could be targeted for criminal prosecution for accidents or mishaps, the Indonesian Air Traffic Controllers Association (IATCA) says.
The association’s chairman, Adrie Gunawan said the exodus was triggered by the prosecution of Garuda Indonesia pilot, who was commanding a Boeing 737 that crashed upon landing at Yogyakarta’s Adisucipto International Airport in March 2007, killing 21 people aboard. (The Jakarta Globe )
