Malaysia: Identity of the Two Passengers Who Boarded the Plane with Stolen Passports Confirmed

ChinaNews March 9 report — Combined from foreign media information, the identities of the two passengers who boarded the Malaysia Airlines passenger plane flight MH370 that vanished have already been confirmed, as well as sent to the Malaysian intelligence agency and international intelligence agency organization, but authorities’ most important task is to find the missing passenger aircraft.

Malaysian Transportation Minister Hishammuddin Hussein says authorities already have images of the two people from CCTV footage, but their nationality will not be made public.

Why can’t the nationalities be made public?

我是克格勃 [网易内蒙古呼和浩特市网友]: (responding to above)

Must’ve received a request from the relevant country.

For what reason they can’t be made public? You can’t find your plane! It was you who let the people pass [board]! 239 lives, you think this is a private/internal matter? It is not up to you to not make it public! You’re just asking for it! Are you protecting your own?

I bet it’s information determined/confirmed by the American using technology… The matter is serious now. Based on common sense, they should make public the details and identities in order to placate the various speculations. Now that they don’t make it public, there’s something suspicious about it.

We’re not that much closer to the truth [closer to learning what happened].

Nationality you don’t need to make public, but you can make public a picture at least.

Those two who pretended to be “Italian” and “Austrian” must’ve been Chinese people (which ethnic group I won’t say), and because they don’t know English, that’s why they booked tickets for this flight from the China Southern website. If they were foreigners, they could’ve just booked it on the Malaysia Airlines website.

There are even S13s asking about nationality? It’d make more sense for you people to ask about the two people’s ethnicity.

Allow me to express some support for Dragon TV, for postponing all of their [normally scheduled television] programs and then continuous broadcasts of the latest news in the search. Now look at the crap CCTV 1, CCTV 13, and Beijing TV are broadcasting!

新浪让包子飞y [网易四川省雅安市手机网友]:

Did these two ever think about how they would get past the security check in Beijing?
