Boeing cabin after laying out in the Netherlands
The German press publishes materials related to the trial that began in the Netherlands in the case of the Malaysian Boeing shot down in 2014. The newspaper Die Zeit writes that the prosecutor Berger, speaking in the courthouse, accused Russia of "serious interference in the process that led to the plane being shot down."
The material in the German publication says that "witnesses in this case fear for their lives." A quote from the speech of the prosecution is given:
Hackers tried to attack the computers of investigators. There are fears that Russia will be able to put pressure on witnesses. Some of them are afraid for life if we reveal their names.
A convenient excuse: "There are witnesses, but we will not say anything about them, since they are afraid for their lives, but everyone should believe their testimonies."
There were attempts to hack Malaysian systems by hackers.
Prosecutor Voey Tsoi:
The cynical disinformation campaign about the fate of flight MH17, which has been going on for more than five years, is a heavy burden for many relatives. Russia systematically hides information on this case.
Articles about the MH17 trial are actively commented on by European users. Present a few comments in Die Zeit.
Russia cleaned up unnecessary people abroad. Therefore, the fear of witnesses is truly understandable, and witness protection is the only way to guarantee the rule of law.
The answer to this comment is:
If the witnesses are anonymous and the evidence is not published for reasons of confidentiality, the whole process is a farce and a mockery of the victims.
A few other comments with different assessments of the situation.
What about the investigation data from private detective Royce. This court does not seem to be interested in the truth.
Russia lacks the courage to admit the commission of a big mistake.
Listen, but if we are not in Russia, where the government can afford to order the results, then why are the judges only Dutch? What does the Dutch government have to do with the MH17 investigation. And where is the international composition: Australia, Malaysia, Ukraine, representatives of the international investigation team?
This is not a court, but some kind of concert with fake notes.
