More than 500 documents tied to MH17 disaster are released by Dutch Government

The Dutch government has published the 575 documents regarding the flight MH17 which flew from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur and was downed near the city Donetsk in Ukraine. All 298 people aboard the plane were killed.

According to Dick Schoof, the National Coordinator for Counter-terrorism and Security, this was done after the appealing to the Freedom of Information Act by media such as NOS, RTL Nieuws and Volkskrant. The released documents are in Dutch, usually without names, phone numbers and email signatures, and mostly consist of emails exchanged within the National Crisis Core Team after the disaster about gatherings arranged for the victims’ relatives. Actually, the 147 of the requested documents are still in denied access because of “protecting the privacy of the people who appear in the documents” and to keep the possibility for officials to have an “unfettered exchange of arguments”.

As it was announced by Deputy Prime Minister Lodewijk Asscher on Friday April 10, 2015, the investigations on the crash site would continue:

“The investigators and salvage crews are returning to the Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 crash site again next week in Eastern Ukraine to ensure the recovery of the last human remains, personal belongings of the victims and fragments of the plane”.



Besides, Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) forensic team of seven officers arrives to Ukraine to resume search:


ACP Hussein Omar Khan who led the team said on the crash site would work experts in disaster victim identification (DVI) and crime scene investigation (CSI):

“We will resume the search for body parts, if any, and also new physical evidence for investigation. The team is expected to be in Donetsk for two to three weeks,” Hussein said.

Earlier Dutch journalists said that troops who shot down MH17 could be ‘liquidated’ by Russian secret services.

The fact that MH17 flight was shot down on July 17, 2014 in the Donetsk region in Eastern Ukraine by the Russian Buk missile complex was evidenced by the film of the investigation.

Recently a metal shrapnel of BUK rocket was found on the the crash site of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17. The international forensic experts and the defense analysts IHS Jane’s in London confirmed that the fragment matched the explosive charge of a BUK (Russian-made anti-aircraft missile system). This fact is the definite proof that Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was shot down by Russian-made missile BUK.
