Dutch Safety Board takes over MH17 investigation

The Dutch Safety Board has taken over formal responsibility for the investigation into the MH17 disaster.

The Dutch Safety Board stated that it took over the lead for the investigation from Ukraine on Tuesday evening. It also confirmed the arrival of the aircraft’s flight recorders in the UK, where analysis will be carried out.

The Dutch Safety Board said: “The on-site investigation in Ukraine is currently in full swing. Although investigators still do not have safe access to the crash site, work to gather and analyze data from various sources is underway in both Kiev and the Netherlands.”

The investigation is also assisted by authorities from Ukraine, Malaysia, Australia, Germany, the US, the UK and Russia, as well as ICAO.

The Board also said: “If the investigation shows evidence of any criminal or terrorist activities, the information will subsequently be submitted to the relevant authorities in accordance with applicable regulations. The Dutch Safety Board’s investigation will focus on ascertaining facts, rather than apportioning blame.”
