Care to enlighten me? Has there been parallel legal investigatory actions on going by the French magistrates while the BEA is doing the technical investigation? The judiciary has priority to investigate any object from the accident site that might be used as evidence which may delay and prevent the safety investigators from carrying out their investigation. Has this happened? Standard 5.12 of Annex 13 explicitly states that the records derived from these devices should not be made available for purposes other than safety investigation unless an appropriate authority has determined that the proper administration of justice outweighs the adverse impact on aviation safety. Have the French magistrates ruled otherwise at this point?
