BEIJING: Families of Chinese passengers aboard the missing MH370 flight here say they were dissatisfied with the briefing given by the authorities and experts.
On the official Weibo account of the families committee, they claimed no new information was released and their queries were not addressed.
“We were told that information and materials, which could only be shown to the next-of-kin, would be announced during the meeting, and so we refused media presence.
“But what happened was really disappointing,” the statement titled “We are fooled once again!” read.
Earlier, the committee posted a list of 15 questions on Weibo which they had prepared to raise during the meeting.
The questions included the formula used to determine the conclusion that the aircraft has ended in the southern Indian Ocean; and whether the recent fire at the Malaysia Airlines avionics work-shop would hamper the pending investigations.
The families also demanded to be given records of all communication systems onboard the aircraft such as the satellite phone and ACARS (Aircraft Communication Addressing and Reporting System), and the communication records between the Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) and the military.
They also wanted a three-dimensional flight path of MH370 with a comparison with the diagram of the Doppler Effect analysis.
The closed-door meeting, which was held yesterday, was arranged following the request of the Chinese families who wanted to find out the “truth” from the higher authority.
