Malaysian government continues to backtrack after initial evidence in case of missing flight is proven false
MALAYSIA (INTELLIHUB) — Malaysian officials told relatives of passengers from missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 that there was sealed evidence, which will not be made public. The sealed evidence reportedly includes air traffic control radio transcript, radar data and airport security recordings.
Family members of the missing passengers are becoming increasingly frustrated and impatient with the treatment that they are receiving from investigators. Many are now casting doubt on the initial report that the plane crashed into the Indian Ocean, killing everyone on board. Family members are suggesting that the Malaysian government prematurely announced that the plane had crashed, acting on faulty evidence.
“We demand you retract announcement that MH370 ended in south Indian Ocean and continue search-and-rescue operations,” one relative said at a briefing earlier this week.
The premature announcement of the crash was sent through a text message to relatives, on behalf of the Malaysian government, nearly a week ago. Since then it was discovered that the object they had found in the ocean was not wreckage, but random unidentified “junk”.
