Let us bring back the truth of MH370’s tragedy

By the MP for Kulai, Teo Nie Ching

The announcement made by Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak in a hastily convened press conference last night is heartbreaking.

The loss of MH 370 is not only the loss of Malaysian Airlines, but also the loss of Malaysia, and also all humankind.

If at this stage, it is seemed impossible to bring back 237 passengers and crew, we should at the very least be committed to bring back the truth. Why was the flight en route to Beijing ended up in the southern region of Indian Ocean? Hopefully through the effort of possible largest ever multi-nation search and rescue team, we will be able to bring answer and peace to the family and friends of the passengers and crew in the near future.

While the tragedy of MH 370 seems to be unalterable, we must do our best to avoid similar tragedy in the future.

It worries many when it was reported that a MAS plane had hit flying ducks about 10.45pm last Friday while landing at the Kathmandu airport in Nepal and yesterday a MAS A330-300 Airbus, bound for Incheon, South Korea, had to divert to Hong Kong today because of an “inoperative aircraft generator”. All these incidents have made people ponder if the aircrafts of MAS are duly maintained.

Even though there is nothing conclusive to indicate that there were any errors or faults on the part of MAS for the tragedy of MH 370, it is imperative for MAS to take drastic and immediate action in order to restore public confidence.

Last but not least, let’s continue to pray for the well being of the family of the passengers and crew while the search mission is ongoing.
