The Swiss Prosecutor's office has charged Russian citizen Vitaly Kaloyev
The Swiss Prosecutor's office has charged Russian citizen Vitaly Kaloyev with the murder of the Skyguide air traffic controller, Zurich Prosecutor Ulrich Weder told journalists on Thursday. Kaloyev will be put on trial this year, the Zurich prosecutor said. An investigation into the air disaster over the Boden Lake in which seventy-one people, including sixty-nine Russian citizens, were killed continued for more than a year. Vitaly Kaloyev was the only suspect charged. His wife and two children were killed in the air disaster on the fatal night on July 2, 2002. Peter Nielsen, the late air traffic controller of the Skyguide Company, made a fatal mistake that resulted in a collision of a Boeing-757 from the DHL Company and the Russian passenger plane TU-154 owned by Bashkortostan Airlines. Vitaly Kaloyev, an architect from North Ossetia, was arrested in Kloten, Switzerland, where the Swiss air traffic controller was stabbed to death. Swiss investigators insisted on a version of a murder out of revenge. In March 2005 Kaloyev was transferred from a mental hospital to prison. The Zurich prosecutor’s office said in a communique issued in February that Kaloyev had partly confessed to the murder. Kaloyev testified that he really had been near the house of the Swiss air traffic controller on the night when he was killed. Kaloyev said he could not remember what happened then. Switzerland has not yet made public the names of the persons responsible for the air disaster
