PUTRAJAYA: The Government will release the full and final report on the findings into the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 on July 30, says Anthony Loke.

The Transport Minister said the Cabinet has granted approval for the Ministry to initially present the report to the victims' next-of-kin and later to the public.

He said the next-of-kin will be given a closed door briefing first in the morning while a press conference will be held later in the afternoon, both by MH370 investigation team head Datuk Kok Soo Chon.

“The briefings will be done completely by the investigation team led by Kok.

“This is a report by them and we respect the independence of this committee, so they will do the briefings and answer the questions.

“We are committed to transparency so the report will be presented fully without any edits or amendments,” he said.

He added that the report will be presented to both houses of the Parliament the next day (July 31).

He said that 1,000 copies of the report will be printed.

He said each victim's family will get the full report, and copies of the report will also be given to media organisations and foreign missions in the country.

Flight MH370, carrying 239 people, vanished enroute from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8, 2014, becoming one of the world's greatest aviation mysteries.
