KUALA LUMPUR: Acting Transport Minister Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Tun Hussein has refuted a report by British tabloid the Daily Mail regarding Capt Zaharie Ahmad Shah’s state of mind before flying the MH370.
Saying that the report was wrong, Hishammuddin said any information quoted in the report was not released by Malaysian police.
“I can confirm that it did not come from the police,” he said at a press conference on MH370 yesterday.
In a report on Sunday, the tabloid quoted a “source close to the pilot’s family” saying Capt Zaharie was in emotional turmoil over the break-up of his marriage. The daughter of Capt Zaharie has since said she would not forgive British tabloid the Daily Mail for “making up stories”.
On requests for the transcript of the final communication from the cockpit of Flight MH370 he said: “You must be fair to us because only those doing the investigation can give us the ok. If there comes a time if this can be shared with the public, with their consent, I will.”
He said the investigation team was not hiding anything and urged everyone to just let “the inquiries show what they show”.
A DCA source described the communications between the aircraft and those on the ground as normal aviation talk.
