MH370 pilot killed all 239 people on board before downing the plane, US writer claims
The unresolved mystery of MH370 once again made headlines when an American writer William Langewiesche resurrected an old and unproven theory, alleging Malaysia Airlines pilot Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah as the person responsible for the flight mishap.
The theory was brought back by Langewiesche on the 18th of June. According to the theory, Zaharie killed all the passengers and crew on board before intentionally downing the plane into the ocean. The poor mental health of the pilot was also highlighted by the American author.
But that was not the only objective he had in his mind. He accused the Malaysian authorities for being incompetent in their investigation on the tragic MH370 flight that went missing in 2014.
In response to this, former Defence Minister Hishammuddin Hussein, who was in power during the MH370 tragedy, rubbished Langewiesche’s allegations.
Hishammuddin told the public to ignore Langewiesche’s claims, stating that the latter is trying to capitalise on the tragedy. Besides, the former Defence Minister added that authorities could easily debunk Langewiesche’s allegations.
Langewiesche made the MH370 claim through his latest writing for The Atlantic magazine.
