The Flight 370 Mystery Gets Political

Posted: 19 Mar 2014 01:54 AM PDT

US News

Attempting to link opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim to the disappeared plane is shameful.

The disappearance of Malaysian Air Flight 370 is a tragedy and a mystery. It is in the process of becoming part of a political smear campaign as well.

Shortly after midnight on March 7, the Boeing 777 vanished, prompting a multination search in the waters of the South China Sea and the Gulf of Thailand. On March 15, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak announced that investigators believe the aircraft was deliberately flown in the opposite direction. The last radar contact with the craft was a ping recorded by a Malaysian air force station about an hour and a half after takeoff, about 200 miles off the nation’s westernmost coast.

Now, in a twist that few observers might have foreseen, Malaysian authorities are attempting to use this tragedy as a weapon against opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim. A British tabloid quoted Malaysian police as saying the captain of the aircraft was a political activist supporting Anwar, and cited unnamed figures describing him as “obsessive” and “fanatical.” The Malaysian press has since been running hard at this angle, including the revelation that the pilot was a relative of Anwar’s son’s in-laws.

It is possible that the pilot, Zaharie Ahmad Shah, will turn out to have been responsible for the diversion of Flight 370. Whether Zaharie’s role in this mystery is that of a villain, a failed hero or an uninvolved victim remains unknown. Also unknown is what factors contributed to his mindset as he sat in the cockpit. Political frustration may have played a part (Zaharie is reported to have attended a court trial for Anwar the afternoon before the flight), but there are any number of other potential elements.

What should not be considered within the realm of possibility is that Anwar Ibrahim or his political party had any role in the plane’s disappearance.

The governing party in Malaysia has conducted a vendetta against Anwar since 1998, bringing repeated criminal cases against him on what many Malaysians believe are trumped-up charges. Anwar was convicted of sodomy (a crime in Malaysia under a statute that dates to British colonial times), and served several years in prison before the sentence was overturned. The court case that the pilot of Flight 370 is said to have attended was the latest in a series of trials for sodomy that the political leader has endured. (Anwar has always denied the charges.)

Why might unnamed sources, in the police and elsewhere in Malaysia’s political establishment, try to link Anwar to a potential hijacking of an aircraft carrying 239 passengers? Possibly to divert attention from the government’s ineffective management of the search in the days since the plane’s disappearance. Possibly to weaken the political threat posed by Anwar, whose opposition Parti Keadilan Rakyat came very close to unseating the ruling Barisan Nasional coalition in last year’s general election. And possibly, given the level of venom in Malaysia’s politics, just because they could.

When asked whether his most recent court setback might have caused the pilot to snap, Ibrahim replied, “I believe 90 percent of taxi drivers support me and are not happy with the (court's) decision. But they did not hijack their taxis.” No one knows where Flight 370 is, or who caused its disappearance or why. But it should be obvious that Anwar Ibrahim is not responsible.

Can Malaysia Salvage Its Public Image?

Posted: 19 Mar 2014 01:53 AM PDT


The Malaysian government probably has done more over the past week to undermine the international image of Malaysia than anyone in the country's nearly 60 years as an independent nation.

For most of those six decades, until the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, the country received little international attention. If Malaysia made the news at all, it tended to get relatively favorable notice as a peaceful, multiethnic nation that had enjoyed some of the strongest economic growth in Asia. The government capitalized on this image as a welcoming and wealthy nation with an effective tourism campaign, launched in the late 1990s, called "Malaysia Truly Asia." This campaign helped make Malaysia a leading destination. (The latest tourism push, dubbed "Visit Malaysia Year," included scores of events, a monkey mascot—and tragic headlines unrelated to the missing plane.)

The 10-day period since the mysterious disappearance of Flight 370 has seen the Malaysian government present to the world a concoction of false leads and conflicting answers, alongside seemingly evasive behavior. Nearly a week after the start of a multinational search off the waters off Malaysia's east coast, the government revealed it had data suggesting the plane had flown in the other direction. Malaysia also released conflicting stories of when the plane's communication with the ground was turned off, who turned it off, vague information as to who might be a suspect, and uncertain details about evidence collected.

Malaysia's official spokespeople seem oblivious to the fact that the vanished plane is a global news story, and the hundreds of reporters who have descended upon Kuala Lumpur aren't going to accept bland missives. At a recent briefing in Kuala Lumpur, a spokesman told reporters that the prime minister would be making a statement without taking any questions. When reporters pressed for more access, the reply came back: "Go watch a movie."

Even the Chinese government, hardly a model of transparency, is spitting angry at Malaysian officials' stalling and obfuscation. China's deputy foreign minister last weekend blasted Malaysia's response and insisted that Kuala Lumpur provide China, whose nationals comprised the majority of passengers on the plane, "more thorough and accurate information" about the flight and the current search efforts. Some Chinese officials privately have wondered whether Malaysia is being less than candid about how its armed forces did—or did not—track the plane so as not to give away details of Malaysia's radar coverage of contested areas of the South China Sea.

As I wrote last week, Malaysian leaders' poor response to the disappearance of Flight 370 isn't that surprising. The country has been ruled by the same governing coalition since independence, its leaders normally shun independent journalists, and state-controlled domestic media rarely push top ministers to answer tough questions.

Can Malaysia turn it around, regaining the trust of neighboring states, the international community, aviation experts, and, most important, the relatives of passengers from the missing flight? It's not impossible, and restoring trust will be critical for the multinational search effort to be successful. Kuala Lumpur needs to immediately—and I mean immediately—take several steps:

1. Malaysia's government needs to speak with a single voice. Start by designating a senior minister—ideally, Prime Minister Najib tun Razak—as the primary point of information about the search for Flight 370. That senior minister would handle briefings of both press and officials from other countries and would not be contradicted by other ministers talking in public about the situation.

The designated minister would have daily question-and-answer sessions with reporters—and not only with the compliant domestic media. (The government-controlled New Straits Times recently published a story headlined, "Stop bashing [Malaysia's] Search and Rescue efforts, says Swede FB user," which featured quotes from an anonymous Swedish Facebook commentator impressed with the government's response.) To take an example from a nearby country, Malaysian officials could review videos of the Philippine government's lengthy Q&A sessions with reporters in the wake of last year's Typhoon Haiyan.

2. Get over the dislike of open cooperation with Western governments. The attitude has been a characteristic of Malaysian politics since independence. Kuala Lumpur should allow foreign aviation and police agencies to cooperate with it in investigating the backgrounds of the passengers, crew, and pilots of the missing plane. So far, even as it claims it is cooperating with everyone, the Malaysian leadership has reportedly rejected extensive help from the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board, as well as from several other foreign agencies.

Keselamatan Dalam Lapangan Terbang Antarabangsa Perlu Disemak Semula

Posted: 18 Mar 2014 10:18 PM PDT

Perlukah menanggalkan tali pinggang semasa pemeriksaan di Lapangan Terbang?

Akibat dari kejadian kehilangan sebuah pesawat MAS MH370, setiap lapangan terbang antarabangsa perlu melakukan pemeriksaan keselamatan dengan lebih ketat lagi semasa hendak berlepas untuk mengelak sebarang kejadian yang tidak diingini berulang di masa hadapan. Setiap penumpang dan pesawat perlu diperiksa dengan lebih teliti sebelum berlepas demi keselamatan penumpang yang menggunakan pesawat tersebut. Semoga pesawat MH370 yang hilang itu dapat dijumpai semula dengan selamat.

Seperti yang dilaporkan dalam media, Jabatan Kastam Diraja Malaysia (JKDM) telah pun menempatkan empat mesin pengimbas yang menggunakan sistem gelombang dan suhu badan di Lapangan Terbang Antarabangsa Kuala Lumpur (KLIA) dalam usaha mencegah aktiviti penyeludupan dadah ke negara ini. Ini adalah salah satu cara yang terbaik untuk mencegah penyeludupan dadah dan sebagainya ke negara ini.

Walaubagaimana pun ramai yang masih tertanya-tanya dan kurang faham mengapa semasa pemeriksaan, penumpang diarah supaya membuka atau menanggal tali pinggang? Apa rasionalnya menanggalkan tali pinggang semasa pemeriksaan sebelum berlepas? Ini hanya menyusahkan penumpang yang terpaksa menanggalkan dan memakaikan semula tali pinggang mereka semasa pemeriksaan. Adakah mesin pengimbas atau pengawal keselamatan tidak dapat mengesan sebarang benda yang boleh disorok dalam tali pinggang tersebut semasa pemeriksaan badan dijalankan?

Kebanyakan penumpang merungut sebab apabila menanggalkan tali pinggang yang terlalu ketat menyebabkan penumpang lain terpaksa beratur panjang lebih-lebih yang membawa anak kecil dan ketika itu waktu hendak berlepas. Ini hanya menyebabkan penumpang yang terlewat terpaksa bergegas masuk ke balai berlepas. Kalau disebabkan tali pinggang boleh mengancam keselamatan atau salah satu cara untuk menyorok barangan seludup rasanya ianya agak tidak relevan. Kalau tali pinggang antara punca barangan penyeludupan boleh dibawa masuk, mengapa tidak mengharamkan penumpang menggunakan tali pinggang sebelum dan selepas pemeriksaan supaya mereka tidak perlu menggunakannya ketika berada dalam pesawat.

Perkara ini mungkin dianggap remeh oleh sesetengah orang, mengapa perlunya menanggalkan tali pinggang semasa pemeriksaan, jadi pihak keselamatan di lapangan terbang perlu memberi penjelasan tentang keselamatan sebelum masuk ke dalam pesawat agar penumpang tidak terganggu semasa pemeriksaan keselamatan di balai berlepas.

Kita harap ada mesin pengimbas yang lebih canggih yang boleh mengesan keseluruh anggota badan penumpang dan juga boleh mengesan segala jenis peralatan atau barangan yang mencurigakan dari dibawa masuk oleh penumpang tanpa perlu menanggalkan alat aksesori penumpang seperti jam tangan, kasut, tali pinggang dan sebagainya. Ini akan memudahkan segala urusan pemeriksaan keatas setiap penumpang yang melalui mesin pengimbas tersebut.

Kita mencadangkan pihak kastam dan pihak keselamatan di lapangan terbang boleh membeli Mesin Pengimbas Sistem Gelombang yang lebih canggih lagi untuk membuat pemeriksaan yang ketat tanpa menyusahkan penumpang yang ingin berlepas dengan selesa.

Memang kita amat bersetuju dengan pemeriksaan yang ketat keatas setiap penumpang yang menaiki pesawat antarabangsa tetapi pihak keselamatan perlu juga memberi keselesaan kepada penumpang agar perjalanan mereka tidak terganggu dengan keadah yang agak melampau semasa pemeriksaan sehingga menyusahkan pergerakan mereka semasa hendak berlepas. Bagi penerbangan dalam negeri pula, seharusnya hanya perlu di periksa seperti sediakala tanpa perlu menanggalkan tali pinggang yang hanya menyusahkan penumpang tersebut.  Carilah keadah yang terbaik untuk keselamatan dan keselesaan penumpang pesawat.

Harap pihak yang berkenaan dapat memberi kerjasama serta penjelasan lanjut tentang keselamatan sebelum dan semasa berada dalam pesawat. Kerjasama dengan pihak yang berkenaan amat dihargai.

Do it necessary to remove the belt during an inspection at the airport?

As a result of the incident the loss of a MAS aircraft MH370, every international airport to do a security checks with more stringent during about to take off to avoid any untoward incidents recurring in the future.
Every passenger and aircraft to be examined more carefully before departing for the safety of passengers using the aircraft. Hopefully the missing aircraft MH370 can safely rediscovered.

As reported in the media, the Royal Malaysian Customs (RMC) has placed four scanner that uses a system of wave and body temperature at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) in order to prevent the smuggling of drugs into the country. This is one of a best ways to prevent the smuggling of drugs and so forth to this country.

However, many are still wondering and do not understand why during the inspection, the passengers were told to open or to take belt off?   What is the rationale to take belts off during inspection prior to departure?

This is only troublesome the passengers who had to take off and put back their belts during the inspection. Does a scanner or security guard could not detect any objects that could be hidden in the belt during conducted body searches?

Many passengers complained because when removing the belt that is too tight causing the other passengers had to queue up even more that brings a small child and when it's time to take off. This is just causing the late passengers had to rush into the departure hall. If due to the belts may threaten the safety or one way to hide smuggled goods it feels like it is quite irrelevant. If the belt is the among the source of smuggling, why not ban passengers use belts before and after the inspection so they do not need to use it while in the aircraft. 

This matter is probably taken for granted by some people, the important thing is the security at the airport will have to explain about the security before entering the aircraft so that the passengers are not disturbed during a security check at the departure hall.

We hope there is a more sophisticated scanning machines that can detect throughout the whole body of the passengers and can detect all types of equipment or suspicious items from brought in by the passengers without having to remove the passengers accessories like watches, shoes, belts and so on. This will facilitate all matters pertaining to inspection on every passengers through the scanning machines.

We suggest that the customs and the security at the airports can buy Wave System Scanner machine that is even more sophisticated to make rigorous examination without troublesome the passenger who want to travel in comfort.

Indeed, we strongly agree with the strict inspection on every passenger that using the international aircraft but the security must also provide comfort to passengers so that their journey is not disturbed by the method that is quite extreme during the inspection until inconvenience their movement during to take off. For domestic flights should only be inspected as usual without having to remove the belt that only troublesome the passenger. Look for the best method for the safety and the comfort of the air passengers.

Hope the authorities concerned will cooperate and further clarification on the security before and during their stay in the aircraft. Cooperation with the relevant parties is highly appreciated.
