UN Security Council: International tribunal in MH317 case is discussed, [VERiFiED], Malaysia, 2015-07-03, Guoyan
The perished Malaysian MH317 aircraft was knocked off the air on 2014-07-17, almost a year ago. The alleged shoot-down by a missile and the ensuing crash caused 298 people on board to die.
Malaysia, Ukraine, Netherlands, Australia and Belgium now urge UN Security Council to set up an international tribune to find out who the culprits were. The plane had been likely to had been shot down by either Russian, Ukrainian or Pro-Russian separatist forces over Ukraine's contested territories in the east.
Russia is a veto-wielding member of the UN Security Council and as such it is in her powers to block such an inquiry.
A proposal to have a resolution with the statute to establish the tribunal is likely in the coming weeks./GuoyanSources:http://www.taiwannews.com.tw/etn/news_c ... id=2764469http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-33375652http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/mala ... h-32196787
