MOSCOW, June 24. /TASS/. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov declined to comment on a report from Reuters news agency on Wednesday that said the Netherlands was planning to call for an international tribunal to prosecute those suspected of downing Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 in eastern Ukraine last year.
"No, I cannot comment on this since we have no information except for these media reports so far. It's impossible to make any comments based on them," Peskov said.
Reuters, citing sources in the Dutch government, reported that the Netherlands was discussing with its allies an international tribunal to prosecute those responsible for the July 17 crash that killed all 298 people on board.
The agency quoted the sources as saying that the Dutch authorities would like the court to be based in the Netherlands, although details of which law would apply and how the suspects would be captured and tried had yet to be worked out.
The Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777, flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, crashed in Ukraine’s eastern Donetsk region, some 60 kilometers (around 37 miles) from the Russian border in the zone of combat operations between Donetsk self-defence forces and the Ukrainian army. All passengers and crew perished, the Netherlands reporting 196 victims, the highest death toll in the disaster.
