MH370 search: Ahmad Shabery confirms co-pilot did not make call

 KEMAMAN: Communication and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek concurs with Acting Transport Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein that the co-pilot of Flight MH370 did not make a phone call from the cockpit of the aircraft on March 8.

He said he had tried to get information on this and that the parties concerned had confirmed that no such call was made.

"I appeal to all quarters to be more responsible in issuing statements because an irresponsible statement can confuse the people.

"It can also complicate the search process which should be given priority," he told reporters after attending a community programme in Kampung Gong Cengal, Kemasik near here.

Bernama had reported Hishammuddin denying a local newspaper report on the matter.

Hishammuddin denied the report which claimed that the co-pilot made a telephone call when the aircraft was flying low over Penang.

He said he would have known about it if the allegation was true.
