Zimbabwean Authorities Refusing To Help With Masvingo Plane Crash Investigations

Finland’s Safety Investigation Authority (Otkes) said Zimbabwean authorities have been reluctant to share material into the Masvingo plane crash which killed three businessmen from Finland.

NewZimbabwe was not able to verify the allegations with the Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe. According to media reports from Helsinki, Otkes director Veli-Pekka Nurmi said they have turned to South Africa to help investigate the plane crash. Said Nurmi:
