In Iran, 10 people have been found guilty of shooting down a Passenger Plane in Ukraine in Iran in 2020. 176 people aboard the plane were killed in the incident that took place last year. A prosecutor informed about it on Tuesday. This decision has come at a time when Tehran has again started talks with Western countries regarding the Nuclear Deal.
The timing of this decision is considered to be very important, because last month Iran released the final report on the downfall of Ukraine International Airlines flight number PS752. In this report, the attack on the aircraft was considered a human mistake and no one was convicted. Iran was criticized worldwide for this report. At the same time, now Tehran military prosecutor Gholambas Torki gave information of the culprits on Tuesday, but appeared to avoid giving information about their names.
10 people found guilty after accurate investigation
Both the semi-official ISNA news agency and the Iranian judiciary’s Mizan news agency published Gholambas Torki’s statements. Mijan was quoted as referring to Torki, condemned in the case of Ukrainian aircraft. A serious and accurate investigation was conducted in this case and 10 people were found guilty in this case. In January 2020, Iran denied its involvement in the incident for three days. But evidence was presented from around the world about this incident, which was showing Iran’s involvement.
Air defense operator convicted for plane attack
After mounting pressure last year, Iran finally admitted that its paramilitary Revolutionary Guards accidentally dumped Ukrainian aircraft with two surface-to-air missiles. In preliminary reports on the incident last year, Iranian authorities blamed an air defense operator. He said that the operator considered the Boeing 737-800 to be an American cruise missile. The incident of shooting down the plane occurred on the same day that Iran’s top Iranian general Qasim Suleimani was killed in an American drone attack.
Discussion on nuclear deal is being discussed in Vienna
After the release of Iran’s final investigation report, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dimitro Kuleba called the findings a scandalous attempt to hide the true reasons for the passenger plane being killed. He accused Iran of publishing partisan conclusions. These 10 people have been convicted by Iran at a time when Tehran and five World Power met in Vienna just a few hours ago. Here America and Iran are going to start indirect talks.
