KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia--We feel deep sorrow and sympathy for the 298 people killed in the MH17 tragedy in 2014, and express our deepest condolences to those who lost their beloved ones.

At the same time, we reiterate that the truth who downed the aircraft is still to be known.

The Hague District Court acquitted one of the four suspects because he was supported by solicitors who proved his innocence. The three others were convicted since they had no defenders.

Those who followed the court sessions, not a narrative of the Western mass media, know that:

-The court was under unprecedented political pressure from collective West governments, mass media and the public opinion they formed;

-The court ignored that the main responsibility lies with Ukraine that hadn’t closed its airspace above the territory of the military operation carried out by the Ukrainian forces;

-There was no indisputable proof provided by prosecutors;

-The court was relying on anonymous witnesses, information provided by Ukraine which is an involved and not impartial party, and took the US’ words as a “proof” with no material evidence provided;

-The court refused to grant the solicitors access to some materials that were used against the suspects;

-The judges ignored discrepancies in testimonies, as well as witnesses and experts if their testimonies did not match the prosecutors’ narrative;

-E.g. the judges ignored that the missile, which is believed to have been used to down the aircraft, was transferred to Ukraine in 1986, and that Ukraine refused to give the court both their radar information and the records of the air-controllers’ conversations;

-And, strangely, the judges refused to consider any other versions of the tragedy, and ignored the materials provided by Russia, including raw data of its radars.

No trust to those judges. It was not impartial justice.
