I've had it with these mother-fscking slaps on this mother-fscking plane: Flight fight sparks legal brouhaha over mid-air co-ords


Re: Here have a can of worms...

On this basis of this, what jurisdiction would cover this if the plane was in international airspace?

I knew that the international law stated that the jurisdiction once outside the national airpsace is where the plane is registered. More or less as the jurisdiction on a ship outside the 12 km line from the coast.

Was the international terrorist (played by David Suchet, presumably Poirot was only a cover) in Executive decision breaking a law if the crime was committed outside the bounds of law jurisdiction?

Increasingly the law of common sense seems to be missing in US law

I wouldn't worry about the rare terrorist case, I would worry about the Americans pretending to be dumb and suddenly using this story as an excuse to ignore the international law and imposing their own interpretation.
