PUTRAJAYA: Lim Kit Siang (pic) wants the "highest levels" of the past administration who believed the MH370 tragedy was a murder-suicide plot to speak up.
The DAP adviser said this following news reports, quoting former Australian prime minister Tony Abbott making the revelation.
"The world would be waiting for the airing of the two-part investigation tonight (Feb 19) and tomorrow (Feb 20) by Sky News, as it reveals groundbreaking new details about the MH370 disappearance.
'It would appear an international commission of inquiry into the MH370 disappearance would be necessary as a result of Abbott's revelations," he said in a statement on Wednesday.
In a documentary on Sky News, Abbott had said that Malaysia's top leadership considered from the outset the disappearance of MH370 in 2014 a mass murder-suicide by the pilot.
"My very clear understanding from the very top levels of the Malaysian governmentm is that from the very, very early in here, they thought it was murder-suicide by the pilot," he said in a clip from the documentary.
Abbott declined to name any individuals to support his claim. Datuk Seri Najib Razak was the prime minister when the plane went missing.
MH370 vanished on March 8,2014, on its way to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur with 239 people on board.
Satellite data showed the jet abandoned its normal route shortly into the flight.
The Malaysian government's 2018 report into the disaster said the aircraft systems were probably manipulated and investigators could not rule out "intervention by a third party", reported Bloomberg.
