KUANTAN: The Health Ministry will collect and compile the findings and experiences of its forensic experts involved in the process of identifying Malaysia Airlines (MAS) flight MH17 victims in the Netherlands.

Its director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said the valuable information would be documented in a book, which will serve as a reference for high profile cases in the country, as well as to facilitate investigations.

“The opportunity to conduct forensic investigations in the case of flight MH17, that was shot down and crashed in Ukraine, is priceless.

“In this regard we will record our forensic experts’ every activity and role in the investigations.

“I have also urged them to relate their experiences in forensic medical journals,” he told reporters after closing the National Forensic Medicine and Sciences Convention 2014 here, Saturday.

Also present were Pahang Health director Datuk Dr Norhizan Ismail and Forensic Medical Consultant Dr Mohd Shah Mahmood.

Noor Hisham said the Ministry’s forensic officers’ capabilities in conducting the investigations had also impressed other nations.

He also reminded forensic officers in the Ministry, Royal Malaysian Police, and Malaysian Armed Forces against uploading reports and photographs of victims on social media.

He said such actions were an offence under the Medical Act 1971. – Bernama
