    It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

    Will the court force the Kiev authorities to release the ATC data they confiscated the day it happened?

    Will Malaysian Airlines find out just who it was that changed the routing initially received by the flight?

    Or will secrecy and national security be invoked to keep a false story alive?

    Btw, I think I already said this, but I love the plane in your avatar.

    One of those heli-planes that take off while sitting on their butts.

    They didn't work out, but they were neat.

    I cannot imagine having to land one of those things, but I guess a few did. That picture was taken at Lakeland FL at the public mini-museum there.

    Dutch government refuses to reveal ‘secret deal’ into MH17 crash probe

    November 20, 2014
    RT

    The Dutch government has refused to reveal details of a secret pact between members of the Joint Investigation Team examining the downed Flight MH17. If the participants, including Ukraine, don’t want information to be released, it will be kept secret.

    The respected Dutch publication Elsevier made a request to the Dutch Ministry of Security and Justice under the Freedom of Information Act to disclose the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) agreement, along with 16 other documents. The JIT consists of four countries – the Netherlands, Belgium, Australia and Ukraine – who are carrying out an investigation into the MH17 disaster, but not Malaysia. Malaysian Airlines, who operated the flight, has been criticized for flying through a war zone.

    Part of the agreement between the four countries and the Dutch Public Prosecution Service, ensures that all these parties have the right to secrecy. This means that if any of the countries involved believe that some of the evidence may be damaging to them, they have the right to keep this secret.

    “Of course [it is] an incredible situation: how can Ukraine, one of the two suspected parties, ever be offered such an agreement?” Dutch citizen Jan Fluitketel wrote in the newspaper Malaysia Today.

    MH17: Malaysia’s Barring from Investigation Reeks of Cover-up

    Joint Investigation Team Includes, Excludes Surprising Members

    With the Dutch leading the investigation, the logic being that the flight originated from the Netherlands and the majority of the passengers were Dutch, it has formed a Joint Investigation Team (JIT). At the onset of its creation it seemed obvious that Malaysia would too be included, considering it lost the second largest number of citizens to the disaster and the plane itself was registered in Malaysia. Instead, JIT would end up comprised of Belgium, Ukraine, and Australia, specifically excluding Malaysia.

    Malaysia was both surprised and has protested its exclusion from JIT, and has repeatedly expressed a desire to be included directly in the investigation.
