Malaysia has not withheld any MH370 information

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia has not withheld any information about the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, said Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai (pic).

He told reporters at the Parliament lobby on Wednesday that all information has been given to the investigating team.

“I said just now in Parliament that all the information we have has been given to the investigation team. They will release the report by this year,” he said.

He was responding to questions on a report by The Australian which said that it could not secure satellite tracking information about MH370 from the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB).

 The report quoted ATSB general manager Colin McNamara who said that “revealing the documents would or could reasonably be expected to cause damage to the international relations of the commonwealth”.

According to The Australian, the documents it requested was central to the ATSB’s defence of its failure to find the Malaysian plane.

On March 8, 2014, the ill-fated Boeing 777 aircraft which was bound for Beijing from Kuala Lumpur went missing shortly after take off.

There were 239 passengers and crew on board.

Its journey is believed to have ended in the southern Indian Ocean.

After spending RM456mil, the Malaysian government finally called off the search on Jan 17.
