The Netherlands Prosecutor’s Office is satisfied with the outcome in the MH17 crash case
Dutch prosecutor’s office satisfied with sentence of defendants in Flight MH17 crash case
The Dutch prosecutor’s office was satisfied with the conviction of three defendants in the 2014 crash of flight MH17 in eastern Ukraine by the Hague Court. Agency spokesperson Brechtje van de Moosdijk said: Her words lead RIA news.
The agency’s interlocutor called the fact that the case was “widely” considered particularly important to the victims’ relatives. According to van de Moosdijk, the court noted Russian control over the DPR since 2014 and the fact that the Buk air defense system that downed MH17 belonged to Russia is also valuable.
Malaysian Boeing MH17 flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur crashed near Donetsk on 17 July 2014. All 298 people on board were killed. Kiev immediately blamed the militia for the plane crash. The downing of Flight MH17 began in the Netherlands on March 9, 2020. The government prosecutors demanded that all the four accused should be sentenced to life imprisonment.
On November 17, a court found Russian Igor Girkin, Sergei Dubinsky and Ukrainian Leonid Kharchenko guilty of destroying the plane. At the same time, the District Court of The Hague found a fourth accused, Russian Oleg Pulatov, not guilty and rejected the prosecutor’s office’s request to keep him in prison.
Earlier, the Russian Foreign Ministry pointed to flaws in the international investigation into the MH17 crash, calling it one-sided. In particular, he pointed to the court’s refusal to find Kiev guilty of the tragedy.
