MH17 memorial opens in Amsterdam on the third anniversary of disaster

Najib reiterates demand for MH17 justice

The father of two siblings killed when Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was shot down over Ukraine three years ago said Monday that relatives of the 298 people killed would not rest until those responsible face justice.

U.S. State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said that Washington "urges other states to cooperate fully in order to ensure those responsible are brought to justice".

Poroshenko said that he was "convinced that the objectivity and impartiality of Dutch justice will complete this path".

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai also remembered the lives lost by tweeting: "Three years may have passed, but the memories of passengers and crew onboard will always be with all of us and they will be remembered dearly #MH17".

"We are also pleased to note that the Dutch Public Prosecution Service will make the necessary decisions concerning prosecution at the appropriate time given the criminal investigation is still ongoing". Van Zijtveld said, "Our loved ones together went on a journey on July 17, 2014, and this memorial forest symbolically unites them again".

More than 2,000 relatives will gather in the Netherlands to unveil a memorial to family members on the third anniversary of the day when Flight MH17 was shot down by a missile over conflict-torn Ukraine.

MH17 was shot down by a Russian-made Buk missile and crashed into a field in separatist-held territory in the Donetsk region in Ukraine.

In Ukraine, President Petro Poroshenko said his country is mourning the victims and said he believes the perpetrators of the attack will be brought to justice.

After a ceremony at which relatives read out the names of victims, Dutch King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima led 17 school children from the local community to lay sunflowers at the new memorial in a symbolic opening. The Dutch government said earlier this month that any suspects will be prosecuted in the Netherlands. The worldwide criminal probe has concluded that the missile was sacked from rebel-controlled territory by a mobile launcher trucked in from Russian Federation.
