Hishammuddin comforting Selamat Omar.
PUTRAJAYA: Several family members of the MAS Flight MH370 were satisfied with the explanation given by Acting Transport Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein during a meeting session at the Everly Hotel on Saturday.
Sharil Shaari, 36, who is the cousin of Mohd Razahan Zamani, 23, said all issues and dissatisfaction felt by the Malaysian as well as Chinese family members were dealt with during the one-and-a-half-hour meeting.
"Before this, we did not really understand several of the announcements made by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, including that the plane ended in the Indian Ocean but everything is now settled," he told reporters after the meeting.
Shahril said Hishammuddin also gave the assurance that the search and rescue operation would continue besides the effort to search the black box, which was the ministry's priority.
He also praised Hishammuddin as a courageous person, who still nurtured hopes as long as there was no concrete evidence yet relating to the missing plane.
Meanwhile Selamat Omar, 60, the father of Mohd Khairul Amri, 29, said he believed the Government did not hide any facts as was spread by the social media.
"On news reports that objects have been found via satellite, he (Hishammuddin) said the matter needs to be analysed and studied before hand as response on it cannot be made immediately," he said.
Selamat was also deeply moved because Hishammuddin was willing to meet and listen to the family members, which proved that he was concerned and felt responsible for the ill-fated missing plane incident. - Bernama
