LONDON (Reuters) - British police said on Wednesday they had arrested a man on suspicion of manslaughter in connection with the death of Argentine football player Emiliano Sala in a plane crash in January.

 

Sala, 28, was flying from his previous club Nantes in western France to Wales to join Cardiff City when the Piper Malibu aircraft disappeared over the English Channel.

 

"We have today ... arrested a 64-year-old man from the North Yorkshire area on suspicion of manslaughter by an unlawful act," said Detective Inspector Simon Huxter, of Dorset Police in a statement.

 

"He is assisting with our enquiries and has been released from custody under investigation."

 

The statement said police would provide no further details on the man's identity at this stage.

Why did they release him?? I don't get it.

According to "The Times" the man arrested was the pilot who was supposed to have been flying the aircraft. He had passed the job on to another, who was neither qualified to fly at night nor to carry paying passengers.

Now we're getting nearer to the truth about the tragic accident. RIP Sala.
