Malaysia Airlines MH370 hijacking was no longer a theory – ‘It is conclusive.’
This is what a Malaysian government official told the media adding that investigators have concluded that one of the pilots or someone else with flying experience hijacked the missing Malaysia Airlines jet.
The official, who is involved in the investigation, told the press that no motive has been established, and it is not yet clear where the plane was taken. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to brief the media.
But the head of the investigation into the missing Malaysia Airlines plane has denied any conclusive evidence of hijacking and said it was just one of a number of lines they’re looking at. So who is the most to believed in or who has the most factual information yet?
It’s been 7 days now since the mysterious disappearance of MH370 and a lot of speculations from possible to weird scenarios have come since it vanished on radar on March 8.
According to the official 18th media statement released by Malaysia Airlines on March 14, 2014 12:13 PM MYT +0800, Malaysia Airlines is fully aware of the on-going media speculations and we have nothing further to add to the information we have already provided.
“Our primary focus at this point in time is to care for the families of the passengers and crew of MH370. This means providing them with timely information, travel facilities, accommodation, meals, medical and emotional support,” they added.
The theory of hijacking sprouted from evidence that led to the conclusion were signs that the plane’s communications were switched off deliberately, data about the flight path and indications the plane was steered in a way to avoid detection by radar.
The Boeing 777‘s communication with the ground was severed under one hour into a flight March 8 from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 aboard. Malaysian officials have said radar data suggest it may have turned back and crossed back over the Malaysian peninsula westward, after setting out toward the Chinese capital.
A U.S. official said Friday in Washington that investigators were examining the possibility of “human intervention” in the plane’s disappearance, adding it may have been “an act of piracy.” The official, who wasn’t authorized to talk to the media and spoke on condition of anonymity, said it also was possible the plane may have landed somewhere.
