Will France hand over MH370 part to Malaysia after lab examination today

PARIS: The French move to appoint yet another independent expert to look into the discovery of a plane part on Reunion and the mysterious disappearance of the Malaysian MH370 flight on way to Beijing from Kaula Lumpur in March last year, could further complicate the multinational search, it is said.

Making the appointment, the French court declared that the French will independently investigate about the plane part found on Reunion coast which has been taken to Paris for defence examination.

According to the rules of the International Civil Aviation Organization, the arm of the United Nations that governs traditional airline-accident probes, when the part was found, representatives of the plane’s manufacturer and Malaysian investigators should have met and decided the next course of action.

But the French government is unilaterally deciding what to do with the part suspected to be a wing flaperon found on French Reubion coast in south-west Indian ocean. And, the French have taken the piece to their mainland defence lab and the judicial authorities have appointed a new expert to probe, further multplying the agencies of investigation.

The lab experts wil examine the flaperon on Wednesday. Malaysian aviation experts have already arrived in Paris. Malaysia's Director General of Civil Aviation Azharuddin Abdul Rahman attended a Paris courthouse on Monday. The Boeing representatives too are there.

Will the French hand over the part to Malaysia after the examination?

Even about the US, the Malaysians had suspicion about their role from day one of the investigations, complicating the multinational probe in which Australia has had a leading role.
