THE HAGUE, June 24. /TASS/. The Netherlands are discussing the possibility of setting up an international tribunal to prosecute those suspected of downing a Malaysian airliner over eastern Ukraine last year, Reuters reported on Wednesday, citing sources in the Dutch government.
"A UN tribunal is the best option. We expect that it will provide the greatest chance of cooperation from all countries involved," the source told Reuters.
However, the issue is still at the stage of preliminary discussion as international experts have not finished investigating the causes of the crash and have not identified those guilty. The Dutch Safety Board is tasked with investigating the causes of the plane crash. The organization plans to publish a final report no earlier than in October. Dutch prosecutors together with international experts are involved into investigating and establishing those guilty in the disaster. It is yet unclear when prosecutors will name the suspects.
According to Reuters, the Dutch authorities want the international tribunal to be based in the Netherlands. However, all details are yet to be discussed.
On July 17, 2014, a Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 passenger airliner on flight MH17 from the Dutch city of Amsterdam to the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur crashed in the Donetsk Region in eastern Ukraine, killing all 298 people on board. Most passengers - 193 people - were Dutch nationals.
