The Crown Office has recently announced the results of its investigation into the deaths of all 16 men on board the Super Puma helicopter AS332 L2 G-REDL, which crashed into the North Sea on 1st April 2009.
Having carefully considered all the circumstances of this incident, Crown Counsel have decided that there is insufficient evidence for a prosecution and as a result no criminal proceedings are instructed.
The deaths of all 16 men who lost their lives in the tragedy are to be the subject of an inquiry in terms of the Fatal Accidents and Sudden Deaths Inquiry (Scotland) Act 1976. It is anticipated that the Inquiry will take place at Aberdeen in October 2013.
