Dutch Investigators to Release the First Results of MH17 Investigation
Meanwhile, all eyes will be on the Joint Investigation Team as it has announced the release of the initial results of its criminal investigation of the MH17 disaster for 28th September.
The results will be announced in a meeting which can be attended by the victims’ families. Following the meeting, the Joint Investigation Team will hold a press conference.
This should once and for all put an end to any and all speculations as to what type of weapon was used and which side (Russian or Ukraine) fired the missile. Last year, the Dutch Safety Board came to conclusion that the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 was shot down by a BUK missile.
MH17 was shot down over Ukraine on 17th July, 2014 with 298 people on board (all killed).
Independent MH370 Investigator Claims Sightings Over Maldives Might Have been Genuine
Independent MH370 investigator Blaine Alan Gibson says that he believes that reported sightings of a runaway Boeing 777-200 over Maldives were real. Those sightings have previously been dismissed.
On the day of the MH370 disappearance, several residents of the Kuda Huvadhoo in the Maldives archipelago reported seeing a large aircraft flying low, going northwest over their island.
However, the officials dismissed these reports, saying the residents either saw a regularly scheduled flight, a private jet, a propeller-powered tourist plane or nothing at all. The officials search team also found the Maldives sightings “inconsistent” with the satellite “ping” data which showed the MH370 heading toward Antarctica before disappearing into the ocean some 1,200 off the coast of Western Australia.
Gibson wrote the following about the official report:
This report makes no attempt or claim to prove that the large low flying jet plane seen over Kuda Huvadhoo that fateful early morning was MH370. It merely sets the record straight that the jet plane that overflew Kuda Huvadhoo has not yet been identified.
He also said he investigated the claims of a private jet or a propeller plane and couldn’t find evidence of either flight type over Maldives on that day.
