Government Position on the Togolese Helicopter Disaster

The Minister of Information and Communication I.B. Kargbo has informed the general public about the position of the Government in relation to the claims made by a Togolese lawyer, Lawrence Sansogno Assiobo on behalf of the families of the 18 Togolese footballers who died as a result of a plane crash at the Lungi  International Airport.

He noted that during the time of the accident the then government constituted an investigation committee headed by Dr. John Tombi, who later presented a report to the then government on the findings of the committee but nothing was done to implement the recommendation.

He further noted the government of President Koroma has set up another committee to closely examine the claims made by the Togolese lawyer. I.B. Kargbo disclosed further that the helicopter in question belonged to one Mr. Dubrosky, a Russian businessman and that the state is not a shareholder in Paramount Airlines.

The Minister further stressed that efforts to locate the owner of Paramount Airlines will be intensified. He ended by saying that the government will inform the general public on effort made by the government to engage the Togolese government on the way forward coupled with an extra effort to contact the Russian government to help locate the owner of the Airlines.
