Here is a report in full from Reuters on a letter sent by families of MH17 victims to the Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte. The families asked that the investigation be turned over to the United Nations because the families felt the investigation as it is currently being led (by the Dutch, i.e. NATO) has been "completely botched" and justice does not stand a chance of being served.

(Reuters) - Relatives of MH17 crash victims, angered by what they see as Dutch mishandling of inquiries into the disaster, want a special U.N. envoy to launch an international investigation.

A letter sent to Prime Minister Mark Rutte on Friday, a copy of which was seen by Reuters, said Dutch officials had failed to build a case. They asked that inquiries by the Safety Board and prosecution service be handed over to the United Nations.

Rutte should "request the U.N. to appoint a special envoy to take over," said the letter written by Van der Goen Attorneys.

Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was downed on July 17 over eastern Ukraine, killing all 298 passengers and crew, two-thirds of them Dutch. Experts say the most likely cause was a ground-to-air missile fired from territory held by pro-Russian separatists.

The Dutch launched the largest criminal investigation in their history after the crash. This week, trucks are carrying pieces of the plane home, but much of the wreckage still lies in Ukrainian fields.

Dutch investigators, leading a case involving 11 countries, have not concluded how the plane was shot down or identified suspects.

The Netherlands "has completely botched" the fact-finding investigation and the legal framework of the case, said the letter, sent on behalf of 20 relatives from Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands and the United States.

Dutch prosecutors have been unable to access the crash site, in a war zone disputed by Ukrainian troops and Russian-backed rebels, or not met international requirements to secure evidence, the letter said.

"Nobody knows who is doing what," said Bob van der Goen, a spokesman for the law firm. "There is no coordination, there is no leadership whatsoever (by) Holland."

Rutte said on Friday the Dutch teams were returning to the Netherlands. "We have done everything we could. In view of the safety situation and the weather, we cannot do anything more right now," he said.

An international inquiry is the only way to identify who shot down the plane and ensure they are brought to court, the letter said.

Van der Goen has represented relatives of victims of a 1992 El Al jetliner crash in Amsterdam, a 2010 Afriqiyah Airways crash in the Libyan capital Tripoli and the 1977 Pan Am-KLM crash in the Canary Islands that left 583 people dead.

Relatives of the Pan Am-KLM crash victims received more than $100,000 each, the highest ever settlement at the time.

So what was the response from Rutte?


If the case against the separatists was as solid as we are being led to believe then why not have a person from a nation that is not a member of NATO, particularly not from a founding member of NATO as the Dutch are, running the investigation?

Why not hand it all over to someone a bit more neutral? To please the families of the victims of MH17? To give them a bit more peace of mind that justice is being served? After all, it was their loved ones who died. It is for them that the investigation is being held. For justice.

But Fuck Off was the reply.

Here is the Reuters report on that diabolical refusal.

(Reuters) - The Dutch government on Tuesday rejected a proposal from relatives of victims of the crash of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 to let the United Nations take charge of its criminal investigation into the disaster.

A request to appoint a special U.N. envoy to take over the inquiry was sent on Friday by a law firm representing 20 relatives, who have accused the Netherlands of failing to build a legal case to prosecute those responsible..

"The investigation by the Dutch Safety Board is being carried out not only by Dutch investigators," wrote Dick Schoof, a senior justice ministry official in a reply to the lawfirm, listing the 11 countries that had contributed to the team, including Malaysia, Russia and Ukraine.

So when I say that the investigation into MH17 is as corrupt as Strictly Come Dancing and The Warren Commission this is what I am referring to.

Ukraine has been a much coveted prize of NATO for decades. Ukraine is a key transit for Russian energy to Europe and has a border with Russia. If NATO could control Ukraine the NATO would be able to plonk first strike nuclear missiles on Russia's border aimed at Moscow. Therefore NATO has great interest in seeing that Donetsk not Kiev is blamed.

Yet here with MH17 we have the following situation:
1. a founding member of NATO, the Netherlands, is leading the investigation;
2. when suspicious and angry families of victims of MH17 ask that the investigation be handed over to the UN because they feel that the Dutch have "completely botched" the investigation that request is refused;
3. the nation whose plane was shot down, Malyasia, was not allowed to be a part of the investigation until a week or so ago;
4. another possible suspect Ukraine, who is also the nation who stands to gain most from blaming the separatists, is also running the investigation;
5. NATO has just run a violent neo-Nazi coup in Ukraine and at the demand of Victoria Nuland installed their man Yats as the PM, while the new President is rushing an urgent bill through an emergency session to join NATO;
6. Ukraine has the same weapon, the BUK, that is suspected of bringing down MH17, has many more of them than the separatists had, but these are being completely ignored by NATO media and their gimps, so all focus is on the separatists.

I know!!

What a NATO Nazi farce!!!

It stinks to high heaven of a corrupt, incompetent, biased and politically motivated investigation. The families of victims of MH17 have recognised this, demanded that the UN lead the investigation, but the Dutch, i.e. NATO, tell those concerned families to fuck off.

So you tell me: is this a fair and unbiased investigation seeking justice? Or a corrupt, biased and politically motivated investigation not seeking justice?
