David Henderson, the man who organized Emiliano Sala’s trip to Cardiff, in which the Argentine footballer died, has been found guilty of “endangering the safety of the aircraft.”
The Cardiff (Wales) court found Henderson guilty by majority of this charge, after he himself pleaded guilty to the charge of organizing the flight without having the necessary permits.
Sala and pilot David Ibbotson died on January 21, 2019 in a plane crash in the English Channel, when the Argentine footballer was traveling from Nantes to Cardiff after completing his signing for the Welsh club.
The grief of Henderson, who was the person in charge of organizing the trips of the plane in which Sala died and who scheduled the trip to Cardiff despite knowing Ibbotson’s irregularities, will be known on November 12.
Sala’s body was recovered days after the accident along the fuselage of the plane, while Ibbotson’s was never found.
