Lost in translation?

Had it done so the judge considers the tragedy could have been avoided as the possible fault in the working of the flaps would have been found

Translation issue or does this imply direction towards a possible conclusion of mechanical/system problems rather than human error? This seems difficult to believe in view of available facts? Perhaps the judge is just trying to avoid the inevitable until all possible facts have been established but this language does seem to be of concern?
