UN: MH17 downing ‘war crime’

29 July 2014 02:30:16 The Asian Age

Clergy of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church take part in a march marking the 1026th anniversary of the Day of Baptism of Kievan. AFP Black boxes show crash caused by rocket shrapnel; MH17 victims may never be found: Cops The downing of Malaysian airliner MH17 may constitute a war crime, the UN said on Monday, as explosions and fighting blocked a new attempt by the Dutch and Australian police to reach the crash site in insurgent-held east Ukraine. The unarmed international mission was forced to turn around as heavy bombardment rocked towns close to the site, where the remains of some of the 298 victims still lie more than 10 days after the disaster. Ukraine’s military confirmed that its forces were engaged in fierce battles against rebels nearby, saying its troops had entered into towns, including Shakhtarsk, just 10 km away. UN high commissioner for human rights Navi Pillay condemned the “horrendous shooting down” of the Malaysian passenger jet in rebel-held territory, and demanded a “thorough, effective, independent and impartial investigation”. “This violation of international law, given the prevailing circumstances, may amount to a war crime,” she said. The Red Cross has said Ukraine is now in civil war — a classification that would make parties in the conflict liable to prosecution for war crimes. A Ukrainian security official on Monday said that black boxes recovered from downed Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 in rebel-held east Ukraine show shrapnel from a rocket explosion caused the passenger jet to crash. International investigators “indicated that data from flight recorders show that the reason for the destruction and crash of the plane was massive explosive decompression arising from multiple shrapnel perforations from a rocket explosion,” a spokesman for Ukraine’s National Security and Defence Council, said. Data from the doomed airliner’s black boxes was decrypted in Britain after being handed over to Malaysian officials by pro-Russian rebels controlling the crash site of MH17. Investigators leading the probe in the Netherlands refused to confirm the latest information from Kiev, saying that they were “waiting to get a more complete idea of what happened.” Meanwhile, Dutch police chief Gerard Bouman said that all remains of the 298 people may never be recovered. “I would love to give a guarantee that all the remains will come back, and all possessions, but... I believe the chances are not very good that we will get it all,” he said in a briefing to Parliament in The Hague. Mr Bouman said all next-of-kin had been made aware of the situation, adding it was not even clear how many bodies remained unaccounted for. Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday urged Russia’s defence industry to swiftly cut imports as the EU looks set to impose a ban on the sale of weapons and technology over Ukraine. He said that Russia’s arms industry is “definitely” capable of producing everything the country needs at a meeting on how to combat the sanctions. Russia will focus “on speeding up import-substitution efforts in the national defence industry and on the broadest possible switch to domestically-produced materials and parts for special hardware and weapons,” Mr Putin said.

Agreement over removal of bodies

20 July 2014 11:13:31 timesofmalta.com

The Ukraine government and the pro-Russia separatists who control the site of the Malaysian plane crash have reached a preliminary agreement to remove the bodies of the victims, a senior Ukrainian official said. News reports of how the bodies have been decaying for days in the summer sun have ignited outrage worldwide, especially from Holland, home to over half the 298 victims. Ukraine's emergency officials said today that 196 bodies have been recovered in an operation involving nearly 300 volunteers and rebels. Ukraine and the separatists accuse each other of firing a surface-to-air missile at Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 on Thursday as it flew from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur some 33,000ft above the battlefields of eastern Ukraine. Both deny the charge. The US has pointed blame at the separatists, saying Washington believes the jet was probably downed by an SA-11 missile from rebel-held territory and "we cannot rule out technical assistance from Russian personnel". The latest US intelligence assessment suggests that more than one missile system was given to the separatists by the Russians in the last week or so. But both Russia and the rebels vehemently deny any role in downing...

Disaster wipes out entire Malay family

20 July 2014 08:03:34 The Asian Age

Jamilah Noriah Abang Anuar (right) lost her daughter Ariza and her family. An entire family of six that had been returning home after three years living abroad was among the 44 Malaysians killed in the MH17 disaster, media reports said on Saturday. Tambi Jiee, 49, and his wife Ariza Ghazalee, 46, perished along with their four children when the Malaysia Airlines flight went down in eastern Ukraine. They were reportedly returning to Malaysia after her husband’s three-year posting in Kazakhstan for energy giant Shell, first taking a short European holiday. Images of a wailing Jamilah Noriah Abang Anuar, 72 Ariza’s mother dominated front pages of Malaysian dailies on Saturday. “I lost my daughter and her family in a blink of an eye,” the New Straits Times quoted her as saying from her home in the eastern Malaysian state of Sarawak on Borneo island. Ariza had posted a photo on Facebook showing the family’s luggage as they prepared to embark from Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport for the flight to Kuala Lumpur. “17 July 2014, starting our new hijrah (journey), Alham-dulillah (praise God),” read the accompanying message. Her son Afzal Tambi also posted his thanks and farewells to friends from Kazakhstan on Thursday. “Before it gets too cheesy, I just want to thank everyone who made it bearable for me to live here and for sharing with me amazing memories to reminisce on.” The latest Malaysia Airlines disaster has rekindled the grief of MH370 relatives who say the new crash bears out their furious criticisms of the nation’s flag carrier and government. Flight MH17, a Boeing 777-200, went down in strife-torn eastern Ukraine on Thursday with 298 passengers and crew, mostly Dutch citizens. he tragedy has reopened the deep emotional wounds caused by the March 8 disappearance of flight MH370, whose fate remains one of the biggest aviation mysteries ever. Many of them have repeatedly accused the airline and Malaysian government of withholding information and of suspicious conduct in handling the probe into the disaster. “My heart is breaking for another 295 souls on board, and another 295 families. Now I cannot stop shaking,” said Sarah Bajc, partner of MH370 passenger Philip Wood.

Missing jet – weather halts search

28 March 2014 08:06:42 timesofmalta.com

High winds and icy weather halted the air search yesterday for a Malaysia Airlines passenger jet presumed to have crashed in the southern Indian Ocean, just as new satellite images emerged showing what could be a large debris field from the plane. The latest possible sightings of wreckage from Flight MH370, which went missing 19 days ago, were captured by Thai and Japanese satellites in roughly the same remote expanse of sea as earlier images reported by France, Australia and China. “We detected floating objects, perhaps more than 300,” Anond Snidvongs, the head of Thailand’s space technology development agency, told Reuters. “We have never said that the pieces are part of MH370 but have so far identified them only as floating objects.” A Japanese satellite also captured images of 10 objects which could be part of the plane, Kyodo news agency quoted the government as saying yesterday. An international search team of 11 military and civilian aircraft and five ships had been heading for an area where more than 100 objects that could be from the Boeing 777 had been identified by French satellite pictures earlier this week, but severe weather forced the planes to turn back. “The...

‘New’ debris is latest lead in search for jet

27 March 2014 09:29:09 timesofmalta.com

New satellite images have revealed more than 100 objects in the southern Indian Ocean that could be debris from a Malaysian jetliner missing for 18 days, while planes scouring the frigid seas yesterday also reported seeing poten-tial wreckage. The latest sightings came as searchers stepped up efforts to find some trace of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, thought to have crashed on March 8 with the loss of all 239 people aboard after flying thousands of miles off course. “We have now had four separate satellite leads, from Australia, China and France, showing possible debris,” Malaysian Acting Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein told a news conference. “It is now imperative that we link the debris to MH370.” The latest images were captured by France-based Airbus Defence & Space on Monday and showed 122 potential objects in a 400-sq-km area of ocean, Hishammuddin said. The objects varied in size from one metre to 23 metres in length. Australia, China and France have all released satellite images over the past week showing possible debris in the same general area as the latest sighting, but no confirmed wreckage has been located.

Severe weather has again halted an air and sea search for a Malaysia Airlines passenger jet presumed crashed in the southern Indian Ocean, frustrating hopes of finding what new satellite images showed could be a large debris field.

"Anybody who's out there is coming home and all additional sorties from here are cancelled." The Australian Maritime Safety Authority, which is coordinating the operation, confirmed flights had been cancelled and ships were leaving the search area due to the weather.

US Sends Ship to Indian Ocean on Indication of Missing Malaysian Jet

14 March 2014 11:19:11 Novinite.com (Sofia News Agency)

The Pentagon has sent the warship USS Kidd to the Indian Ocean, following an indication that missing Malaysian Airlines plane could have crashed on Saturday in the area. According to senior administration officials, the missing Malaysian flight continued to "ping" a satellite after it lost contact with radar, the ABC News reports. The aircraft was equipped with an Airplane Health Management system which pings a satellite every hour. The number of pings would indicate how long the plane stayed aloft. It is not clear, however, whether the satellite pings also indicate the plane's location. The new information has greatly expanded the potential search area into the Indian Ocean. Meanwhile, it became clear that the shutdown of two communication systems happened separately on Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 indicating that the plane did not disappear due to a catastrophic failure, the ABC news informs. Investigators told ABC News that the two communication systems were "systematically shut down." meaning that there was manual intervention. Malaysian transport minister rejected the latest reports on the missing plane's possible location, including the Chinese satellite photos, Thursday by saying they had been "released by accident", the Euronews reports. He assured reporters that "Malaysia has nothing to hide" and the search efforts will continue to be focused on the South China Sea. Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 disappeared with 239 passengers on board while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing early Saturday local time. The aircraft went off the radar south of Vietnam. Searches for any wreckage of the aircraft that might have crashed somewhere at sea have entered their seventh day.
