Iran grants Canada investigators access to downed plane

Iran grants Canada investigators access to downed plane”

Canada's Transportation Safety chair Kathy Fox holds up a document as she speaks about the Iran plane crash during a news conference in Ottawa, Monday.

Transportation Safety Board (TSB) chair Kathy Fox said she was speaking in general terms because Canada is not leading the investigation of what happened to Flight 752, which was shot down by an Iranian missile on January 8, killing all 176 people on board, including at least 57 Canadians.

Previously, the Iranian side stated that the crash had been caused by technical problems. Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) accepted full responsibility for the downing of the Ukrainian plane.

Spokesman Gholamhossein Esmaili said investigations into the incident were continuing, but provided no details. He did not say how many individuals have been detained, or name them.

Iran has signalled that Canada's Transportation Safety Board (TSB) would play a more active role than global rules require in the investigation of the Iranian military's shooting down of a Ukrainian airliner last week, TSB head Kathy Fox said on Monday. "This is not an ordinary case". The whole world will be watching'. "We should assure people that it will not happen again", he said, adding that his government was "accountable to Iranian and other nations who lost lives in the plane crash".

"They want answers, they've expressed anger and outrage and also immeasurable pain", said Trudeau.

For days after the crash, Iranian authorities called the missile theory technically unstable and blamed it on a mechanical issue, but in a stunning admission on Saturday, they admitted they had accidentally shot down the plane.

"They killed our geniuses and replaced them with clerics!" chanted protesters in Shiraz, who could have been talking about Iran's repressive rule at home as well as the victims of the plane crash, many of whom were students. There were four Britons on board and several children among the passengers, including an infant. The tragic incident came just hours after Tehran fired missiles at two military bases housing United States troops in Iraq in retaliation for the killing of a top Iranian military official.

"The U.S. makes its determinations". Millions of Iranians took to the streets last week to pay tribute to Soleimani, but this week anti-government protests resumed in at least a dozen cities.

Videos posted on social media that could not be verified immediately appeared to show security forces firing live ammunition and tear gas to disperse protesters.

The TSB's director of investigations, Natacha Van Themsche, said one of the main questions was why Iran did not shut down the airspace around Tehran, given the tensions created by Iran's missile attack on Iraqi bases housing USA troops earlier on the day of the tragedy.

Iran's Foreign Ministry summoned the British ambassador on Sunday to protest what it said was his presence at an illegal protest.
