The Dutch Safety Board (DSB) report on the MH17 crash is looking more corrupt and unreliable than ever, as reports emerge that Malaysia had very limited input in the investigation of the crash itself.
The latest is this from The New Straits Times Online of 24 October. When we add this to all the other omissions – radar data, Russian evidence of aircraft nearby, damage to port wing and engine, the trivial number of lethal fragments – I realise that I was wrong to call it a “limited hangout”.
It’s an incompetent limited hangout.
Responding to points made in the DSB final report on the incident, which stated that Malaysia did not extend its full cooperation in the initial stage of the investigation, Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Abdul Aziz Kaprawi said this was because Malaysia’s role was not honoured as it denied full access and privileges to the probe.
He said the Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) was not made a full member in the joint investigation and unlike other members, Malaysian representatives were only granted limited access. “We were the owner of the aircraft.
How can we be prevented full access? “We could not view the aircraft and were not invited to attend certain meetings.”
“In the end, we cooperated when they gave us full access after acknowledging our role. It even says so in the news report,” said Abdul Aziz, referring to a recent foreign news article alleging Malaysia’s initial reluctance to cooperate.
