Families of passengers who were on board the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 have said there is a lack of evidence proving that the missing Boeing 777 ever crashed – hinting that authorities investigating the “crash” may be part of a cover-up.
Families of the missing Chinese passengers say that the surface and underwater searches have not unearthed anything relevant, despite the investigations covering over four million square kilometres.
In a statement released today, they said the Malaysian authorities did not explain their delay in releasing the satellite data from Inmarsat, which provided the determinations for the underwater search.
There was also “compelling evidence” that the debris washed up Reunion Island was suspect, they said.
“Also, our perception of the ineptitude, the lack of both transparency and compassion of the Malaysian authorities throughout the entire process give us no reason to trust the initial and subsequent announcements and their motives in pursuing the current path of investigation.
“We ask: when the Southern Indian Ocean search reaches June 2016 without finding MH370, what would happen next?”
The families said if the missing passengers were still alive, they were willing to offer the perpetrators amnesty in return for their safe release.
Flight MH370 disappeared from radar on March 8, 2014, en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
In August, the Australian Joint Agency Coordination Centre (JACC) confirmed that a part of the aircraft known as a flaperon was found on Reunion Island, but there has since been no further trace of debris.
All 227 passengers and 12 crew members on board are presumed dead after an official declaration by the government, classifying the incident as an accident based on international aviation rules. – February 13, 2016.
