Skip to comments.Malaysia to release MH370 report
Posted on 04/25/2014 7:55:21 AM PDT by Uncle Chip
Malaysia will release a preliminary report next week on the disappearance of flight MH370, Prime Minister Najib Razak said, as his government battles criticism over the transparency of its investigation.
"I have directed an internal investigation team of experts to look at the report, and there is a likelihood that next week we could release the report," Najib told CNN in an interview aired late Thursday.
Malaysian officials said Wednesday the report already had been sent to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), which requires countries to submit within 30 days a factual run-down of what is known so far in any air crash....
Najib was asked why investigators need to look at the report before its release, and whether that indicated it contained something "embarrassing".
"No, I don't think so. But I just want it to be -- this team to go through it. But in the name of transparency, we will release the report next week," he said....
Malaysia's government has come under fire for a seemingly chaotic initial response, while scarce and often contradictory official information has prompted transparency concerns.
The cabinet this week also approved plans to set up what Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein has called a "highly credible" international team tasked with investigating what befell MH370.
His ministry was still assembling the team, whose members would be made known next week ...
"As I've consistently said since the beginning, we have nothing to hide," he said.
The investigation will not cover any findings from a criminal probe being conducted by Malaysian police...

Why not??? Isn't what may have happened to the plane and its passengers a criminal matter??? Why is that off limits??? What are they hiding????
Won’t be worth the paper it’s printed on.
I agree — it is being edited and redacted to death.
The families should demand that the report come directly from the ICAO and it be released NOW along with the raw ATC recordings.
A video summary was released as well
(adult language / s-word warning :)
Please tell us that is a Photoshop.
Why bother releasing a report? Everyone knows you’re lying.
She nails it:
A report on what? Where the plane isn’t?
This will be a report sent to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) giving them the current status of their investigation.
The question once this is made public will be: Why didn’t the ICAO give them an F on their report and throw this thing back at them and tell them to do it over again with footnotes, facts, and hard data.
Cliff Notes version of ‘official report’....Two Muslims took a plane full of mostly non-Muslims to their deaths. On land, or in the sea, they are dead. Allah be praised, the pilots are heroes either way. The plane-could be gone, could reappear over infidel airspace...keep wondering.
Amazing the things you learn daily on FR! Now we know.
Libraries will file this under 895, and nowhere near Class 500 or 900.
Tom Sawyer write it? io hear he’s pretty good at whitewashing fences....
the plane is still unaccounted for . ..
The Malaysians will claim that their report is incomplete because they don’t have the black box.
And yet they have done everything they can to keep from finding the black box.
They refuse to allow this to be called a criminal investigation because in doing so it just might lead them to the black box and the criminal who just might be their own pilot. And they can’t have that —
Military radar DID track an unidentified aircraft at the time MH370 disappeared, Malaysian PM reveals six weeks after the search began
Well that only took 6 weeks —
The Russians have an interesting take on this, published last week in PRAVDA Online:
‘The second mystery around Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370
18.04.2014 By John Chuckman
“A second mystery around the disappearance of Flight MH370 has largely gone unnoticed: why hasn’t the United States been in the forefront of providing information about it? The implications of this question are massive.
“America has a fleet of the most sophisticated spy satellites, called “keyhole” satellites, covering the earth’s surface daily with imaging systems comparable to those of the Hubble Space Telescope, but instead of data from any of these, we read of data from China and France. One can understand that the CIA does not want others to understand fully the capabilities of its satellites, but surely the lives of more than two hundred people are cause for some information, however indirectly supplied ”.
They compare MH 370 with Iran Air Flight 655 in 1988, Pan Am 103 over Lockerbie, TWA 800, and United “let’s roll” 93, all of which they claim were shot down by Americans
EVEN THE COMMENTS are interesting: “...Boeing knows where all their planes are at every moment. 20 Chinese scientists were on board who knew the secrets of a new secret weapon. US has been waiting for Pakistan to speak but they will not ”.
Are these the same Russians who claim they are not involved in Ukraine???
I didn’t say they were right, just that they are interesting.

Missing Malaysia Airlines plane: police deny investigation into phone call from MH370 cockpit by senior pilot Zaharie Ahmad Shah
Note that they deny “the investigation into the phone call” but they don’t deny that “the phone call” took place. They are playing cat and mouse word games.
The story goes on to say that political activists in Malaysia also sometimes use SIM cards bought with fake identities if they fear that their phone calls may be bugged and Captain Shah is a member of one such group.
Did Captain Shah also have a cell phone with an unregistered SIM card besides his registered cell phone???
Was that what he used to receive a call just before the flight???
And was that the reason that the plane flew as low as 5,000ft over Malaysia — so that he could connect with one of the cell towers there and make a call to confirm hijacking status.
The answers to these questions are not under 15,000ft of Indian Ocean but right there in front of them in cell tower records.
NSA Reply to FOIA Request On MH370:
Currently and properly classified matter. What does NSA know?
The NSA isn’t saying whether it knows anything or doesn’t know anything.
She filed with the wrong agency. She should have filed an FOIA with the NTSB.
They say that what they know is classified.
We have determined that the fact of the existence or non-existence of the (MH370) materials you request is a currently and properly classified matter in accordance with Executive Order 13526 ...
They are not saying whether or not they have any MH370 materials because to even say whether or not they have any is classified.
I think there is a cat and mouse game going on here between the US/Aus/Brits and the Malaysians.
The Malaysians are in charge of the investigation and are doing the best they can to hide evidence like cell phone calls but what prevents them from doing so is not knowing whether the NSA has already scooped up those phone calls.
The Malaysians already tried to deny the co-pilot's cell phone connection to a tower in Penang, but then a NTSB official came forward and confirmed that the connection did take place.
Why didn’t Flight 370’s emergency beacon work?
Earlier, the former Prime Minister of Malaysia, Dr Mahathir Mohamad, questioned whether MH370 had even crashed into the Indian Ocean - and he blamed manufacturer Boeing for its fate.
‘The loss of the plane is due to the makers, Boeing. How can Boeing produce a plane that is so easily disabled?’
So per the Malaysian PM, it’s Boeing’s fault that the pilot was able to disable the ACARS and transponder.
