German detective Josef Resch, who conducted his own investigation into the crash of the Malaysian Boeing MN17 in Ukraine in 2014, is ready to witness the trial in The Hague at the invitation of the defense and hopes for a corresponding call from representatives of one of the suspects.
The District Court of The Hague will commence proceedings in the case of the collapse of MH17 in Donbass on 9 March. Neither the name of the law firm nor the name of the suspect has yet been communicated.
“I think that one of the suspects and his lawyers at the Hague trial will call Mr. Afshar and me as witnesses to disclose all the evidence”, – Resh said.
He added that “everything else would be absurd” if all the evidence in the case was not presented at the trial, this “would have no legal basis at the international level”.
Earlier Decision, which has been investigating the collapse of the MN17 since 2014, said in an interview with RIA Novosti that he knows the names of those responsible for the disaster and other data that the international investigation, he said, ignores. The detective said then that he could appeal to Russia, Malaysia and other countries with a proposal to make public his information about the causes of the tragedy, the names of people responsible for it, as well as American satellite data available to him. The Decision also named the admission of the world’s media to the procedure as a condition of providing information. Malaysian Prime Minister said in an interview with RIA Novosti on September 5 that the country is ready to listen to Dech’s evidence in the disaster case, which was not taken into account by the joint investigation team.
Malaysian Boeing, which flew from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur by MH17, crashed on July 17, 2014 near Donetsk. There were 298 people on board, all of them died. Kiev blamed the disaster on the militia, who stated that they did not have the means to shoot down the aircraft at such an altitude.
