Relatives of MH17 victims taking Russia to Hague court

ROTTERDAM: Relatives of the victims of the Malaysian Airlines flight shot down in 2014 are taking Russia to the European Court of Human Rights, Dutch media reported on Friday.
A law firm based in Amsterdam issued a formal complaint against Russia to the court on behalf of relatives of 55 people who died in the MH17 disaster, DutchNews.nl reported.
The website quoted lawyer Veeru Mewa saying: “My clients have the impression that Russia has not delivered important information to the Joint Investigation Team.”
“In addition, Russia has come forward with facts which have later transpired not to be true,” he added.
According to DutchNews.nl, if the case is accepted, it would take around five to seven years to be processed.
This May a team of international investigators implicated Russia in the crash of flight MH17, which was shot down while flying over eastern Ukraine, killing all 283 passengers and 15 crew on board.–AA
