PUTRAJAYA: Malaysia will be made a full member of the MH17 criminal investigation team led by the Dutch, the Prime Ministers of Malaysia and the Netherlands announced Wednesday.

Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and his Dutch counterpart Mark Rutte who is here for a one-day official visit said both countries realised the importance of Malaysia’s presence in the team.

“I would like to state that 43 people died in this crash and the aircraft (MH17) was carrying the Malaysian flag, so it is only logical that Malaysia gets involved,” Rutte said in their joint press conference here.

He was responding to a question with regard to the Malaysian Ambassador to the Netherlands’ queries as to why Malaysia was still not involved in the criminal investigation team.

Najib in response to Rutte’s comments said that he expected a “meaningful development” to take place in the next few days regarding Malaysia’s involvement in the team.
