Publication Date : 09-03-2014
The two impostors who travelled on the missing Malaysia Airlines (MAS) flight MH370 using fake passports were captured on closed-circuit television (CCTV) at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport.
Department of Civil Aviation director-general Azharuddin Abdul Rahman said the CCTV recordings would be used in the department’s investigations.
“We have CCTV recordings from the point of check-in right up to departure point,” Azharuddin said in a press conference here, Sunday.
Italian Luigi Maraldi, whose name is on the manifest, was not on the missing MAS flight.
According to news reports from Italy which quoted its Foreign Ministry, Luigi Maraldi’s passport was stolen last August while he was in Thailand.
Meanwhile, London’s Daily Mirror reported that a second passenger was also using a stolen passport.
Austrian Christan Kozel has been confirmed as safe and well by authorities.
He told Austrian newspaper De Standard that his passport was stolen when he visited Thailand two years ago.
