PUTRAJAYA: Voice370, the group representing the next-of-kin of missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, has handed over five pieces of debris believed to be from the doomed flight to Transport Minister Anthony Loke today.
The debris pieces were found by fishermen in Madagascar in five different locations.
A representative from the group, Grace Nathan handed over the debris which were found between December 2016 and August this year.
“I said in Parliament yesterday that we will not dismiss any possibility of reopening the search if there is strong evidence,” Loke said.
He added that the debris will be given for further investigation.
“We don’t completely shut down the possibility of resuming the search mission, but the government can’t go on searching without credible leads, without any solid evidence,” Loke said.
Grace Nathan said they hoped the government would be able to do something after the latest discovery.
Flight MH370, carrying 239 people onboard, disappeared on its way from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on Mar 8, 2014, and became one of the world’s greatest aviation mysteries.
The deep-sea search mission carried out for almost three years to locate the missing aircraft in the Indian Ocean, covered 120,000 sq km involving Australia, China and Malaysia.
Another mission carried out by Ocean Infinity, a US-based underwater exploration company, stopped on May 29 without any significant findings.
