WARSAW (Reuters) – A Warsaw court found an aide of former Polish prime minister Donald Tusk guilty of negligence on Thursday in connection with a 2010 plane crash in Russia that killed Poland’s then-president, Lech Kaczynski, and all 95 other people on board.

Private radio Zet tweeted that the court had sentenced Tomasz Arabski, who had headed Tusk’s chancellery at the time, to 10 months in prison, suspended for two years.
