Publication Date : 02-04-2014
Malaysian Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar regrets that there are still certain parties who continue to speculate the fate of Flight MH370 even to the point of tarnishing the reputation of Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah's family.
He said the speculations would not only embarrass the family but could also jeopardise investigations into the incident.
"There are too many speculations, so we have to be very careful what we read. Even his daughter has denied, yet there are media (foreign) who intentionally write things, which are not correct.
"If there is anything, I will make an announcement. But we have to understand that this is being investigated, and we are afraid that it could jeopardise our investigations," he told reporters after launching the Life-long Health Carnival With Royal Malaysian Police Leadership at the Kelantan Police Contingent Headquarters, here on Tuesday.
On Monday, Zaharie's daughter, Aishah slammed the report by British newspaper The Daily Mail, which claimed that her father was emotionally disturbed several weeks before the tragedy.
Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, with 227 passengers and 12 crew on board, went missing on March 8 about an hour after departing the Kuala Lumpur International Airport at 12:41am.
It was scheduled to land in Beijing at 6:30am the same day.
