Search for MH370 to be discussed in August

Transport Minister Anthony Loke announced today that the possibility of resuming the search for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 will be discussed in Cabinet in August.

He claimed that the government has not yet decided whether to restart the search operation. 

“We need time because we require a detailed proposal from Ocean Infinity before we can submit it to the Cabinet. It will be brought up to the Cabinet in August,” said Transport Minister Anthony Loke, reported The Star. 

He said this at the opening ceremony of the new hall at Datuk Sheikh Ahmad Secondary School in Seremban.

Recently, The Association For Families of the Passengers and Crew on board MH37 revealed on their Facebook page that Ocean Infinity had proposed to Loke to restart the search operation. 

According to the association, Ocean Infinity recommended starting the search with a “no find, no fee” approach to Loke. 

On March 8, 2014, Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 disappeared during its journey from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. The aircraft was carrying 239 individuals, comprising 227 passengers and 12 crew members.
