MH370 crash: Families of Chinese passengers demand ‘the truth’

PETALING JAYA: Relatives of 29 Chinese passengers on Flight MH370 are demanding for "the truth" about what happened to their families.

At a press conference at the Holiday Villa on Sunday, the relatives held up banners and the China flag before giving out a strongly worded statement.

They demanded that Malaysia Airlines update them on the investigations immediately, and "face-to-face".

The group also called on the Malaysian Government to apologise for the conflicting information released during the early stages of the investigation.

"During the briefings with the 'so called' high-level group in Beijing, we were told nothing, said a representative of the group.

"All our questions were not answered.

"They kept saying 'we will investigate' and that they would get back to us with answers.

"That is why we are here," said the representative.

The group chanted: "We want evidence, we want the truth, we want our relatives back," several times during the press conference.

About 50 family members of Chinese passengers on board the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 arrived at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport on Sunday morning.
