SQ6 Pilot Sued By Victims' Relative

Sat Jun 22, 2002 7:37 am

Taiwan's media today reported that a victim's relative of SQ006 has decided to sue the 3 pilots operated the doomed SQ flight. The reason is: accidental murder.

The victims' relative was not satisfied that the pilots didn't get prosecuted by Taiwan's Government.

Strange how you know who did not post this. Well with his one sided posting that's not a shock !!

As for this news, I think only the pilot in charge at the time should be sued along with the Captain. My view is this is disgusting how they are getting away free after killing 80 + people due to stupidity.

How can anyone fly SQ these day's knowing that this guy could be at the controls ?, Oh sorry its OK unless the weather is bad !!

While I agree don't want to see another fight, I totally agree with Hkgspotter how can anyone fly them with the chance that he might be flying?

He made a FATAL mistake no matter how many other factors are considered, in the end it's pilot responsibility.

I can't beleive he got off with community service. If i was flying SQ I'd request to know what flights he operates first.

That the Taiwan gov't prosecuting the pilots is a criminal case.
That the pax relatives sueing the pilots is a civil case. Probably the relatives are not satisfied with the compensations.
If pax relatives are really sueing the pilots, then they are probably sueing them for their neglience as professionals. Also, the relatives have to sue for something as remedies, for example, $$ compensation. They cannot just sue the pilots if they are NOT UNsatisfied with the compensations.

I would say the captain might have contributory neglience. Which means the captain is only part of the causes contributing to the accident. So the captain should not fully reliable for it.
SQ, as an employer, should be reliable for the pilots' fault as well if there is any.
