Netherlands to Present MH17 Report in August
Ukrainian Deputy Foreign Minister for European Integration Olena Zerkal said at a briefing on Tuesday the Dutch Safety Board will present the final report on the Malaysian MH17 passenger jet downing on August 10 for all countries to review.
"In fact, the work on this report is already being completed and on August 10, the Dutch Safety Board should submit the final version of the report for all the countries to review," Zerkal announced. Kiev also stated the Dutch, Belgian, Australian, Malaysian, and Ukrainian foreign ministers are expected to meet with the UN Security Council to discuss the MH17 plane crash next week.
The Dutch Safety Board’s final report is due in October 2015. Mark Rosenker, a former chair of the US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), familiar with the draft report, said that it was a purely technical investigation that would only say the plane had been struck by a ground-to-air missile, with no information on those who brought the plane down, he stressed.
