France reopens investigation into MH370 amid claims of cover-up
The latest (and what was said to be the final) report into the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, released on July 30, 2018, indicated what the world already knew – despite a four-year long search investigators have failed to find any explanation as to why the Boeing 777 jetliner went missing with 239 passengers and crew on board on March 8, 2014. Was it premeditated murder-suicide? Hijacking? The conspiracies have gone wild. The investigation team’s report, however, did find indications that the plane was manually veered off course, as well as significant lapses by Malaysian and Vietnamese air traffic control. And now, French experts have something to say about it – by re-opening their investigation into the doomed flight’s disappearance.

The Malaysian government’s 449-page report on the findings of the investigation, released on June 30, 2018, sparked accusations by the victims’ families of incompetence and a possible cover-up, a view that many experts share. Newspaper Le Parisien reported on August 5, 2018, that France’s Gendarmerie of Air Transport (GTA) has launched its own probe into the disappearance of Flight MH370. Four French citizens were among the 239 on board the missing aircraft.
The most significant piece of suspected Flight MH370 debris to be located was a flaperon found on the French island of Reunion in the Indian Ocean (2015). An interim report by French authorities claimed their investigation of the flaperon had been hampered by an absence of satellite data from Boeing, which is why the results of their analysis of the wing part have never been fully released.
French investigators therefore say they will seek to re-examine “all the technical data” provided by the British satellite telecommunications company, Inmarsat, to verify “authenticity” of the Boeing 777's path and confirm if it was correctly plotted. Inmarsat tracked the plane’s pings to the southern Indian Ocean off Western Australia, or the so-called “Southern Corridor”, where the plane is believed to have crashed. In accordance, the victims’ relatives have issued a statement urging the Malaysian government to release all data – including that of military radars – for review and analysis by independent experts.
