I suppose that the available evidence was handed to the Malaysians and they decided it was enough to make their announcement in the way they did. The French on the other need to meet, by law, certain criteria in order to be able to say the same. I´m pretty sure this is what happened.
I think so, French and US laws and processes have a sequence, but from I read on CNN today:
"Najib said the flaperon matches a Boeing 777, the model of the airplane that disappeared, and the characteristics of the piece match the technical specifications provided by Malaysia Airlines for that part of the missing aircraft.
He also said a maintenance seal on the flaperon belongs to MAS, short for Malaysian Airline Systems, as the airline was once called. He added that the paint and a serial number match as well."
So we have a 777 flaperon, with tech specs for Malaysia (not sure what that means), a maintenance seal, paint, serial number matches.
What scenario could there be at this point where the piece isn't from Malaysian Airlines? Some wrong assumptions about the variables?
