EINDHOVEN, July 24. /ITAR-TASS/. The Dutch Safety Board has allowed removing the Boeing 777 fragments to recover the remaining bodies of the Malaysian plane’s crash victims which may still be under the wreckage, the board’s representative said on Thursday.

The local sides, apparently the people’s militias of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s republic which are in control of the territory, will supervise the translocation. It is vitally important, the Dutch Safety Board said, to send the dead bodies to the Netherlands as early as possible to be identified and handed over to relatives.

The Dutch Safety Board is coordinating the activities of international experts investigating into the July 17 Boeing 777 crash over Ukraine’s Donetsk region. It consists of 24 people, including representatives of Russia. They have so far failed to reach the crash site for security reasons.

Meanwhile, members of the OSCE observer mission as well as experts from Malaysia and Australia have visited areas where large and least damaged pieces of the plane are scattered. The experts studied the area and made photos.

Boeing 777 of Malaysia Airlines (flight MH17) was on its way from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur when it crashed in Ukraine’s Donetsk region on July 17. All the 298 people onboard died. They included the citizens of Malaysia, the Netherlands, Australia, Indonesia, Britain, Germany, Belgium, the Philippines, Canada and New Zealand.

This is the second Malaysia Airlines plane crash over the past 5 months. On March 8, 2014, a Boeing 777 plane bound for Beijing disappeared from radar screens shortly after take-off from Kuala Lumpur airport. The plane with 239 passengers onboard is still missing.
