The Defense Minister, Fernando Cordero, said that tomorrow the members of the Investigating Accident Boards will travel to the United States in order to open two “black boxes” of the Dhruv helicopters that fell in January.
“24 hours or less after each accident (four out of the seven devices purchased have been registered),I established the Investigating Accident Boards. We could not do that before (open the boxes), because we do not have this technology,” Cordero said yesterday.
“(Opening the boxes) is a scientific work that has to beimpartial. Things are not delayed just because we do not want to make them or because we are not interested in clarifying (the accidents); there was a delay because we want that the discoveries that are made are attached tothe truth, To give us evidence to make decisions,” he said.
