“FI will do everything possible to obtain evidence, sign a new contract with Ocean Infinity (a deep-sea exploration company) so that the search can resume as quickly as possible,” said Anthony Loke, during an event with families of the victims on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur, according to the Bermana agency.

The state news agency said that, at the event, Loke promised to try to convince the rest of the Government to resume the search for flight MH370, an old demand from family members since the last attempt was suspended in 2018.

Loque said in front of around 200 family members of the victims that he invited the North American robotics company Ocean Infinity, which specializes in deep-sea exploration, to present a proposal.

Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 disappeared 40 minutes after taking off from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, when, upon leaving Malaysian airspace and entering Vietnam, someone in the cabin manually turned off the communications system and the transponder signal. It has been lost.

Shortly afterwards, the plane, a Boeing 777, changed course manually – not mechanically or on autopilot – making a sharp left turn and heading back southwest over the Malaysian peninsula, before turning again and finally leaving the radar zone.

According to the official investigation, the plane flew for another six hours towards the Indian Ocean until it allegedly ran out of fuel and crashed into the water.

The British Inmarsat3 communications satellite — stationed over the Indian Ocean — intermittently recorded signals from MH370 until the alleged crash, almost 2,000 kilometers west of the Australian city of Perth.

During the investigation, authorities considered the possibility of a terrorist act or suicide by a passenger or crew member, but did not find any evidence in this regard.

The available evidence so far is 27 pieces recovered on the beaches of Réunion, Mozambique, Mauritius, South Africa and the island of Pemba (Zanzibar), with only three of them “definitely” belonging to the device.
