Statement on call for witnesses in MH17 investigation

  • Statement
16 November 2019

We welcome the Joint Investigation Team’s release of telephone intercepts.

These further link Russia to the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17.

We support the JIT’s new call for witnesses with information on who ordered the deployment of the Buk missile system that shot down MH17.

Australia will fight for as long as it takes to ensure justice for the 298 victims of MH17, who included 38 Australian citizens and residents.
