ICCJ prosecutor’s office closes the case of the Fundata aviation accident

The prosecutor’s office of the Supreme Court closed the case of the Fundata (Brasov County) helicopter crash of July 2010, which claimed the lives of six Israeli troops and of their Romanian pilot, Cpt. Stefan-Claudiu Dragnea. The prosecutors dropped all charges in the case. The investigation blamed the accident on bad weather conditions that could not have been foreseen. The crew was confronted by sudden and violent changes in weather conditions, very low clouds and visibility under the limits provided by visual flight rules (VFR). The accident was not a result of human error or technical malfunctions, as it was caused by an objective factor, consisting in the adverse weather encountered in-flight, whose evolution could not have been predicted before take-off, the Public Ministry concludes.
