Don't reopen old MH370 wounds, former DCA chief tells Abbot

PETALING JAYA: The theory on why MH370 went missing as claimed by former Australian prime minister Tony Abbott is unproven and will only rekindle painful memories for the victims' next-of-kin, says Datuk Seri Azharuddin Abdul Rahman (pic).

Azharuddin, who was the former Civil Association Department (now Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia) director-general back when the plane went missing in 2014, also said that Abbott was reopening wounds of families and friends of those who went missing as the tragedy remained a mystery.
