Gov’t assures full report on MH370 will be open, transparent


The government today gave assurance that the full report on the search for the ill-fated flight MH370 will be made public in a detailed and transparent manner.

Transport Minister Anthony Loke said Ocean Infinity Limited (Ocean Infinity), a US-based underwater exploration company, was expected to submit the full report to the government in the very near future as the search for the aircraft would end tomorrow.

He said the report would be published in full detail without edits after it was tabled to the cabinet.

“I’m very serious about this, but I cannot guarantee that the flight can be found. I’m just a minister, not an aviation expert.

“But, I can assure that the report will be published openly and transparently without anything being adjusted or hidden, including the elements of controversy,” he told reporters after visiting the Malaysian Aviation Commission (Mavcom) headquarters in Kuala Lumpur today.

Last January, Ocean Infinity began the mission to find flight MH370 and aimed to complete it in 90 days based on “No Cure, No Fee” deal.

In another development, Loke has instructed Mavcom to carry out a special study to set the ceiling price for flight tickets, especially during festive seasons.

“The people should not be burdened by expensive flight tickets during festive seasons, especially the people of Sabah and Sarawak who are working in the peninsula, and vice versa.

“The study needs to be carried out soon so that we can fix the suitable (ceiling) rate, but we need to seek the opinions of experts first to ascertain the impact to the industry and the aviation market,” he said.

During the 40-minute visit, Loke was also briefed on several issues in the aviation industry.

Also present was Mavcom executive chairperson Abdullah Ahmad.
