Manslaughter Charges in Everest Fatality

Manslaughter charges have been brought against Out There Trekking of Britain in connection with the fatality six years ago of Michael Matthews on Everest.

District Judge Walker yesterday issued summonses against Jonathan Tinker, an Everest and mountaineering expert from York, Henry Todd, a mountain oxygen supplier and Michael Smith, a mountain guide from Argentière, France on the basis of prosecution brought by the missing climber’s father David, 62, a millionaire property investor and former amateur racing driver.

OTT has gone into liquidation. English courts have jurisdiction over the deaths of Britons wherever they occur.
