76 MH370 kin file suit against Putrajaya, MAS, before deadline expiry

KUALA LUMPUR - Dozens of families sued today the Malaysian government and Malaysia Airlines (MAS) over the disappearance of Flight MH370, just before the deadline to make claims from the plane accident expires tomorrow.

A total of 76 family members of 32 passengers on board the plane filed the civil suit at the High Court here on the eve of the second anniversary of the mysterious disappearance.

The plaintiffs are suing Putrajaya, MAS in both its previous and current names, the Department of Civil Aviation (DCA), and the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) for conspiracy, fraud and failure to fulfil statutory obligations.

Lawyers Tommy Thomas and Ganesan Nethi will act as counsel for the plaintiffs, while two other lawyers from Podhurst Orseck, a law firm from Miami which specialises in aviation litigation, will apply leave to join the trial at a later date.
