    “overstayed their visas” and this would matter to the FJB administration how?

    On the flip side all of them need to be taken into custody until tje NTSB figures out what combination of human and equipmemt errors led to this disaster.

This was ultimately a management failure whether by the captain, his engineer, or the port authority.
