Indonesian executives liable for air disasters
font size    

The Indonesian government will impose sanctions on airline CEOs and stakeholders if they fail to comply with aviation regulations, a report said Wednesday, following the missing of a passenger plane with 102 people onboard.

The existing laws impose sanctions only on the companies and individuals involved, such as pilots and operation managers.

"The airliners agreed that sanctions should also be imposed on top management to ensure better safety," Air Transportation director Ikhsan Tatang was quoted by English daily The Jakarta Post as saying.

"An airline's top management can be held responsible for forcing airplanes to fly in a way that compromises flight safety," he said.

His remarks came amid fruitless efforts to search for the missing Boeing 737-400 belonging to Jakarta-based Adam Air in the last 10 days.

"The worst thing that can happen to the airline is having their operating license revoked," he said.
