Five days after Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 was allegedly shot out of the sky, Malaysian government had succeeded to establish contact with those in charge of the MH17 crash site.
On July 22, 2014, Malaysian Prime Minister spoke to Alexander Borodai who is in command of the region where the tragedy occurred and established an agreement for Malaysia to recover the remains of the victims and the MH17 black boxes.
Malaysian officials received the two MH17 black boxes from the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) in Ukraine.
The black boxes, which record cockpit activity and flight data, were handed to Malaysian officials by the prime minister of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, Alexander Borodai, in front of journalists at the DPR government headquarters in Donetsk.
AFP reported Alexander Borodai as saying, “We will order a ceasefire in an area of 10 kilometres around” the site of the disaster, which killed all 298 people on board the plane.
The DPR leader Alexander Borodai thanked Malaysia and the Netherlands for sending teams here on Monday to resolve the MH17 matter:
“(Our) thanks to Malaysia and Netherlands for coming here without protection or help from Kiev (the Ukrainian government),” he said, according to a rough translation by a local – The Star.
The DPR and Malaysian officials later signed various documents at the handover ceremony .
The Star reported that DPR produced a white sack containing the black boxes which were then inspected and accepted by the Malaysian officials.
Malaysian National Security Council’s Kol Mohd Shukri then thanked Alexander Borodai for handing the boxes back to Malaysia, saying:
“I would like to convey our sincere appreciation to Borodai for giving us the opportunity and entertaining our special request to hand over the two black boxes to Malaysia.” – The Star.
DPR had released the remains of the victims which had been taken by train to the city of Kharkiv accompanied by six Malaysian members of the recovery team.
The train is expected to arrive in Kharkiv on Tuesday where the remains will be handed over to representatives from the Netherlands and later to be flown to Amsterdam on board a Dutch C130 Hercules, together with the Malaysian team.
Following any necessary forensic work, the remains of Malaysian citizens will then be flown home to Malaysia.
There is so much mystery and so many speculations regarding the missing flight MH370.
And to add to the mystery, PKR’s Datuk SeriAnwar Ibrahim and his wife, Datin Seri Dr. Wan Azizah, gave contradict statements about their relationship with the MH370’s pilot, Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah.
Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s wife, Datin Seri Dr Wan Azizah is the president of PKR.
At 0:34 second of the video, Anwar Ibrahim told the parliament that he knows the missing MH370 pilot.
“Tentang tragedi MH370, tentunya kita dah buat berberapa kennyataan dah doakan supaya selamat semuanya. Ada sebahagianya yang saya kenal termasuk juruterbang.”
“About the MH370 incident, we have made (media) statements and prayed that everyone is safe. I know some of them (the passengers and crews), including the pilot.”
Then, the medias found out that Wan Azizah and Anwar were lying.
Both PKR leaders actually know Captain Zaharie who is their daughter in-law’s uncle.
So, Anwar made another statement:
“I am not denying that he (Zaharie) is related to one of my in-laws and that I have met him on several occasions. In fact, he is a close friend of (PKR supreme council member and Subang MP) R. Sivarasa, as we said before.” – The Star.
But before admiting he knows the pilot, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim had claimed that he did not know Captain Zaharie:
Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, who previously claimed he did not know the pilot of missing MH370 aircraft, has now revealed that, “Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah is related to one of my in-laws”. – The Star
“Mr Anwar had earlier denied close links to Mr Zaharie” – News.com.au
“Anwar Ibrahim, Malaysia’s opposition leader, has stated he saw the pilot at party meetings but did not know him personally.” – Telegraph.co.uk
“Mr Ibrahim has previously said he did not recognise the pilot’s name.” – Mail Online
“I don’t recollect the name, but when the photographs were shown I remembered I had seen him at party meetings. He doesn’t hold positions in the party, but is an active member in the sense that he has been seen with the party’s parliamentary leaders, taking photographs with them,” – South China Morning Post
Why must Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim andDatin SeriDr. Wan Azizah lied about knowing Captain Zaharie?
PKR leaders are furious when Britain’s The Mail on Sunday published, “Doomed Airliner Pilot Was Political Fanatic” on its front page.
The article stated that the missing MH370 pilot, Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah is “a political fanatic” and an “obsessive” supporter of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
It also reported that the pilot had attended Anwar’s trial at the Court of Appeal and could had been very upset over the court decision hours before he piloted the plane to Beijing.
The Star reported that Anwar rubbished the claims and blamed Umno for creating the perception.
PKR’s Fahmi Fadzil, Tian Chua, N. Surendran, Dr Afif Bahardin, Peter Chong and Datuk Abdul Malik Abul Kassim and PAS’s Suhaizan Kaiat also gave strong statements against the report.
I wonder why are they so ‘aggressive’ over the news when PKR are fighting for the freedom of press?
The report only said that the pilot is a political fanatic and an obsessive supporter Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim; well I’m sure he is not the only person who is a ‘political fanatic and an obsessive supporter Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’ – if not how could Anwar claims that a lot of people support him?
Anwar says that he wants press freedom in Malaysia and that overseas medias enjoy the press freedom, so now, why must he be furious and put the blame on UMNO?
