(Flight MH370) Beijing relatives outraged at dodgy Malaysian officials


Chinese relatives of passengers aboard missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 marched to Malaysia's embassy in Beijing (Pictured) and some demanded they be flown to Reunion island where a part of a wing was found.


Most of the flight’s passengers were Chinese. About 30 relatives protested near the embassy, as dozens of police blocked off roads near the building. 

Earlier, they gathered at an office in the hope of meeting Malaysian officials, although none arrived.

Several demanded that Kuala Lumpur organize travel to the French Indian Ocean island, where a wing part was found.

Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak confirmed early yesterday it was from the plane. But French prosecutors said only there was a “very high probability'' it was from the Boeing 777 that disappeared.

“We want to go to the island and see the truth,'' said Lu Zhanzhong, whose son was on the plane, adding: “I want to see if my son's luggage is there.''

Lu held a sign appealing to President Xi Jinping to help, but had harsh words for the dozens of security personnel present.
“The Chinese government has only repressed us. Look at all the police here.. they come to our houses and stop us from giving interviews... They want to cover up the truth,'' he added.

Hu Xiufang, who had three relatives on board the plane said: “Our demand is to go to Reunion island and look for ourselves.’’

“All the relatives want to go there,'' she said. “Malaysia is the country responsible and they should obtain the relevant documents,'' he added.

Zhang Jianyi, whose daughter and granddaughter were on the flight to Beijing, added: “We will all go there together. That's what international agreements require. And Malaysia is the relevant country to arrange it.''

The Malaysia Airlines flight, with 239 people – including 153 Chinese – on board, vanished en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in March last year.

Relatives also expressed continuing frustration with Malaysian officials.

“The Malaysian government have refused to send anyone to meet us,'' said Jiang Hui, whose mother was on the flight.

“I don't know what the Malaysian government fears, or what it's trying to cover up.'' he said.—AFP
