A defendant has, for the first time, asked an American court to allow Sharia Law to take precedence in a lawsuit based on the fact that the incident in question took place in Afghanistan and
“is governed by the law of Afghanistan,” Presidential Airways argued in a
Florida federal court. “Afghan law is largely religion-based and evidences a
strong concern for ensuring moral responsibility, and deterring violations of
obligations within its borders.”
Presidential Airlines is seeking to be judged under Afghan law which:
does not hold a company responsible for the actions of employees performed
within the course of their work.
Presidential Airlines, the company seeking to dodge responsibility to the widows of the three US men killed in the crash is a sister company of Blackwater. Now we've managed to outsource justice. How "forward thinking" is that?
