Garuda crash pilot jailed
6 April 2009

The pilot of the Garuda Boeing 737-400 that crashed in Yogyakarta in March 2007 was found guilty of criminal negligence.
Prosecutors had sought a four-year jail term, but he was sentenced to two years in prison.
One of the panel of five judges remarked that the sentence was about the prevention of future accidents rather than revenge.
One of the judges dissented and said that he did not think the pilot should have been found guilty. (Sydney Morning Herald)
