Without having the record of the communications between the ATC controllers and the AR crew we can not blame anyones fault.

For the AR crew, the angle between the taxiway M and the runway 02 is more than 120 so it is almost impossible from the RHS to have a clear view to the approach path.

According to ICAO Manual of Prevention of Runway Incursions,

4.5 AIR TRAFFIC SERVICE PROVIDERS AND
AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS

-4.5.16 When using multiple or intersection departures, oblique or angled taxiways that limit the ability of the flight crew to see the landing runway threshold or final approach area should not be used.
