Reports of planned second visit by a team of Malaysian experts to the crash site:

Malaysia's defense minister expressed concern Monday over the security of experts at MH17 crash site ahead of the next expert team's visit to Ukraine.

"I don"t want to risk our security teams. I want to see for myself whether the safe passage to the crash site is a reality," the New Straits Times quoted Defense Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein as saying September 7. "There is no closure until we find justice for MH17. Malaysia demands justice so that those responsible for shooting down MH17 be tried. This requires proof which is being gathered, and accurate information."

Following the Malaysian government's investigation of the Malaysia Airlines (MAS) flight MH17 crash in eastern Ukraine, a team of 30 Malaysian experts, is expected to reach the crash site in Ukraine on Monday.

Apart from that, Minister Hishammuddin Hussein will visit Kiev accompanied by Deputy Foreign Minister Hamzah Zainudin and Malaysian Armed Forces chief Zulkifeli bin Mohd. Zin.

The minister, however, did not disclose the parties he is going to meet and emphasized that Malaysia will remain uninvolved in the country's ongoing conflict.

After Kiev, Hishammuddin Hussein is scheduled to visit Moscow and Amsterdam to discuss the course of the investigation. [2]
