ended up being only an eight-year prison sentence. He was
charged with premeditated killing and not manslaughter, but I must say
the pronounced sentence is extremely mild and I will seriously consider
appealing this decision because I can't be satisfied with it."
Kaloyev lost his wife and two children when a cargo plane and a
Russian passenger jet collided in Swiss-controlled airspace on the southern border with Germany on 1 July 2002.
He was charged with killing Peter Nielsen on 24 February 2004.
Nielsen was the only air traffic controller on duty at the time of the accident.
Kaloyev was alleged to have paid a detective to find out Nielsen's
address and then confronted him at his home in Zurich, stabbing the Danish citizen to
death in front of his wife and three children.
