Boeing CEO’s Departure Won’t Cut It; Company Must Be Held Criminally Accountable

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Boeing has announced that company CEO Dave Calhoun will leave his job at the end of this year. Public Citizen has called on the Justice Department to consider criminal prosecutions of Boeing for its recent failures and the 2019 crashes. Robert Weissman, president of Public Citizen, released the following statement:

“If Boeing had been held criminally accountable after the 2019 737 Max disasters, the more recent quality debacles quite likely could have been averted. Of course CEO Dave Calhoun should be dismissed. But for real and lasting change to occur, Boeing must now be held criminally accountable both for the recent safety failures and the 2019 crashes that took 346 lives.”
