Iranian court has jurisdiction over case of Ukrainian plane: Deputy FM

Tehran, June 7, IRNA – Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Mohsen Baharvand said on Monday that as the incident has taken place within the Iranian borders, the Iranian court has jurisdiction over the case of the crash of the Ukrainian plane.  

Baharvand made the remarks while speaking about a third round of talks with Ukrainian officials over Flight PS752 which was unintentionally shot down by Iranian air defense in January 2020.

An indictment has already been issued by the prosecutor in an Iranian court, he said.

Three Iranian judges are dealing with the case, he said, adding that in case of any negligence by anyone in the case, they will be dealt with according to the law.  

Besides the jurisdiction, the two sides also discussed many different issues, including civil aviation and safety, as well as military and legal issues, the official said.
