SABAK BERNAM: The report regarding the helicopter crash which killed Rompin MP Tan Sri Dr Jamaluddin Jarjis on April 4 last year will be released next week, says Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai.

"The cause of the accident has been determined and the report will be published on the Ministry's website next week," said the Transport Minister during a mock RM2mil cheque presentation to SMJK Yoke Kuan in Sekinchan Tuesday evening.

Liow, who is also MCA president, added that the investigation into another crash which killed the late deputy plantation industries and commodities minister Datuk Noriah Kasnon on May 5 was still ongoing.

"Preliminary investigations showed that the crash happened during bad weather and we are still waiting for the final report," he said.

On April 15, 2015, a Eurocopter AS365N3 (9M-IGB) crashed near Kampung Sungai Pening Pening in Semenyih, Selangor.

The tragedy took the lives of Rompin MP Tan Sri Jamaluddin Jarjis as well as the Prime Minister’s principal private secretary Datuk Seri Azlin Alias, pilot Captain Clifford William Fournier, operations assistant Aidana Baizieva, bodyguard Razakan Seran and businessman Datuk Tan Huat Seang.
