“John Hoyte has been at the centre of an international campaign aimed at highlighting so-called “aerotoxic syndrome” for more than a decade.
The condition is said to be caused by toxic fumes entering passenger cabins and cockpits from aircraft engines.
It is feared to be behind the deaths of several pilots and crew members, but has long been denied by airline companies.
Now, Mr Hoyte, founder of the Aerotoxic Association, wants to take the issue to the International Criminal Court (ICC) for an independent inquiry.
“It is time for an independent public inquiry to finally resolve this and to determine the necessary actions to protect the public,” Mr Hoyte said.
The association is calling for any evidence of health problems experienced by the public due to airline oil fume exposure to be directed to the ICC.
It said an inquiry will be able to determine whether “known technical solutions” should be introduced in bleed air jet airliners.
During a flight, crew and passengers breathe in a mixture of recycled cabin air and “bleed air”, which is drawn in from jet engines.”(©SOURCE) READ HERE
