Air crash families to get maximum compensation

THE BEREAVED families of the 42 victims of the January 19 air crash will receive a total of Sk67 million (€1.8 million) in compensation, the SME daily wrote.

The sum does not include widower and orphan benefits that the families are also entitled to. Relatives of the An-24 air crash victims will get maximum compensation.

Former Defence Minster Juraj Liška, who stepped down from his post over the accident, proposed the maximum reimbursement for the bereaved families as his last act as cabinet minister.

Apart from 41 soldiers who died in the crash, one civilian victim, a former professional soldier, also died in the crash and his family will be entitled to the compensation too.
