PROBE INTO GERMANWINGS CRASH finds suicidal pilot solely responsible. [archive]

German prosecutors said on Monday that they had closed a criminal probe into the Germanwings plane crash in March 2015 after concluding that the suicidal co-pilot bore sole responsibility for the disaster that killed all on board.

The probe focused on whether any doctors who treated the co-pilot, Andreas Lubitz, had been criminally negligent in not reporting him to authorities before the plane came down in France, killing 144 passengers and six crew, mostly from Spain and Germany.

The probe also concluded that Germanwings had “no knowledge of psychological ailments” suffered by Lubitz.
