The Malaysian authorities admit the involvement of “third parties” in the case of the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines’ MH370 aircraft carrying 239 people on board in 2014. “We can not exclude the participation of a third party,” said Kok Soo Chon, head of official investigation during a press conference.
Malayisia AirLines’ MH370 flight was connecting Kuala Lumpur and Beijing on March 8, 2014, and “after a change of course” crashed into the Indian Ocean.
The head of the official investigation said that the device had changed course “manually” , but stressed that there are still elements to conclude the reasons for the maneuver. The report included safety recommendations related to commercial aviation despite still missing the two black boxes of the device and the fuselage of the device. One of the suggestions included in the document proposes to improve the effectiveness of location transmitters aboard commercial airplanes in the event of accidents at sea.
The document also mentions that companies and authorities in the various countries should broaden the scope of information on psychological conditions of pilots and crew, better inspection of cargo and “greater” control of air traffic. Last May, the US company Ocean Infinity was unable to locate traces of Boeing after exploring 112,000 square kilometers in the Indico.
So far 27 pieces have been recovered on beaches in Mozambique, Reunion, Mauritius, South Africa and Zanzibar: fragments that were supposedly washed away by ocean currents. According to experts, three of the 27 fragments found in Mauritius, Réunion and Zanzibar belong to the MH370.
Another seven pieces, including parts of the interior of the cabin are “almost certainly” of the MH370 and another eight may be “most likely” parts of the Malayisian Airlines aircraft.
