A lawyer representing the families of four Germans killed in the MH-17 plane crash disaster in eastern Ukraine in 2014 said he would invite a private detective to testify as a witness in a case related to the incident in the European Court of Human Rights.
German private detective Josef Resch has appealed to Dutch prosecutors with his evidence regarding the MH-17 plane crash for a second time after being rejected last month, his lawyer has indicated.
According to the investigator, his findings included audio recordings about local air traffic on 17 July 2014, the day that the Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur Malaysia Airlines flight was shot down over an area of eastern Ukraine mired in civil war.
His other findings reportedly included recordings of communications between Ukrainian military on that day, information related to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s flight from Brazil to Moscow.
But also personal recordings of pilots about the incident, US satellite data, and records previously thought destroyed containing the notes of unnamed high-ranking officers and politicians, intelligence agents, and “extra documents”
None of this information was included in JIT’s presentation in June, when the investigators reiterated their earlier claims that the plane was shot down ‘by a Russian-made Buk missile’ and named three alleged militia-linked Russians and one Ukrainian national as suspects.
Resch had earlier reported receiving multiple anonymous threats in connection with his investigation.
Furthermore, authorities carried out a search of his apartment, and opened his bank box in a Swiss bank at the request of Dutch authorities, where unnamed documents connected to the case were said to be found.
Resch said he was also interrogated by the Federal Criminal Police Office in Cologne over the probe in 2016.
All 298 passengers and crew aboard Flight MH-17, most of them Dutch nationals, were killed when it was shot down in eastern Ukraine in 2014.
The Kiev regime and authorities from the fledgling self-proclaimed Donbass republics immediately began blaming one another for the incident.
The USA and several Zionist European powers rushed to also blame neighboring Russia, before an official investigation was launched, accusing it of providing material support for the militia.
Despite the allegations of Russian involvement, the Netherlands’-led JIT probe into the case did not allow Russia to join the investigation despite Moscow’s repeated offers to help.
Russia starting its own investigation, involving extensive studies of forensic evidence, experiments by Buk’s manufacturer, and the declassification of previously secret information about advanced military hardware, to determine who shot the plane down.
Russia concluded that MH-17 was destroyed by an older version of the Buk manufactured in 1986 and fielded by Ukraine. Russia, investigators said, had phased out its stocks of this particular missile during military modernization efforts.
As far as JIT’s conclusions are concerned, President Putin has said that Moscow could only recognize the results of a probe it was allowed to participate in.
Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad, meanwhile, has said that he was “very unhappy” about the probe’s results, describing it as a politicized anti-Russian witch hunt. Malaysia has now reported that it wants to start it’s own investigation.
