|Quoting QANTAS077 (Reply 165):|
the Malay government has no idea how to properly handle this case.
Razak and his cronies deserve a gold medal for the level of deceit they have displayed.
It makes me even wonder why Australia will continue to partly fund the search for Malaysia's missing plane.
The following article provides a brief summary of the continued deceit:
'Comment: With MH370 likely found, Malaysia’s lies begin to come undone'
Some selected quotes:
""Razak’s press conference came only moments before that of the French authorities. His pre-empting of the French announcement follows dissatisfaction from the public prosecutor’s office in Paris over the lack of transparency from Malaysia about what it knows, and knew, about the disappearance of the flight.""
""Now that the French have invited the Malaysians to participate in the examination of the wing, the French judge expects information from Malaysia about its criminal investigation into the flight’s disappearance.”
It refers to the evasiveness of the Malaysian authorities and to the frustration that has caused other governments with an interest in solving the riddle of the missing flight, but doesn’t refer to Australia by name, where the policy setting is to be obsequious to the government in Kuala Lumpur and dare not question anything, even though Razak misled Australia over what Malaysia knew about the crash from day one.""
""With the French authorities now on the case, what Malaysian authorities faced this morning, when Prime Minister Najib Razak spoke to an almost empty room, is loss of control over the narrative — and that’s a narrative flawed by outright lies and evasions from the government of Malaysia and its civil aviation authority.
Razak may have been guided by a PR
strategy to appear to remain in control of events by being first to announce that the recovered flaperon was not just a part unique to all Boeing 777s, but specifically linkable to the 777 that flew MH370.
In 2014 Malaysia misled search partners looking for MH370 for a full 11 days when Kuala Lumpur insisted that the search be extended further into the South China Sea and as far as Kazakhstan when according to its then-acting minister for transport Hishammuddin Hussein, the cabinet knew the jet had flown westwards across the Malay Peninsula on the morning it disappeared from air traffic control radar while over the Gulf of Thailand.
Razak’s posturing will be on trial in France, and the lies, evasions and inconsistencies in the official narrative will be under arguably as much pressure as the integrity of its government over the public investment funds scandal that has concurrently broken out in Kuala Lumpur.""
