Perpetrators of MH17 Crash May Be Tried in Absentia, Says Australia

Perpetrators of MH17 Crash May Be Tried in Absentia, Says Australia

As Dutch King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima and some 2,000 friends and relatives of victims gathered at a new memorial, Mr van Zijtveld said the loss of his 19-year-old daughter Frederique and 18-year-old son Robert-Jan "left a hole in our hearts". The attendees included family members of the victims, Dutch King Wilhem-Alexander and Queen Maxima, and other worldwide guests and politicians.

Nevertheless, Russia insists the plane was brought down by Ukraine's military, not the separatists.

Last year, a Dutch-led team of worldwide investigators and public prosecutors alleged that a Russian missile transported into a rebel-held part of eastern Ukraine was used to shoot down the jet.

She called for all nations involved in the investigation to assist in any way possible "to ensure that those responsible for the downing of MH17 are held accountable and brought to justice".

According to him, this crime might not have happened if a Russian missile had not been delivered from the territory of Russia amid the Russian aggression. Russian Federation has denied any involvement, and denounced the conclusions as politically biased.

"Ten nations have also lost sons and daughters to this tragedy", he said in a statement.

The commemoration ceremony included the unveiling of a "living memorial" designed by artist Ronald A. Westerhuis and landscape architect Robbert de Koning. It stands in an amphitheatre surrounded by 298 trees planted in the form of a commemorative ribbon. Each tree has a plaque bearing the name of a victim. "We not only want to honor the MH17 victims, but also want to create a place where everyone can keep their memories of the 298 passengers alive".

Now, on the third anniversary of the tragedy on July 17, open-source investigation team Bellingcat has issued a 73-page report on MH17 that summarizes the evidence of who was responsible for the mass murder of MH17's passengers and crew, a well as showing how Russian Federation has attempted to muddy the case with misinformation. Though more than 100 people are wanted in connection with the tragedy, no one has been arrested to date.

Late in June, the Netherlands said suspects in the case would be tried in a Dutch court, and under Dutch law.
