Delegation in Moscow to discuss investigation MH17
7 juli 2016 - Landelijk Parket
A delegation of the Dutch Prosecution Service has visited Moscow this week to consult with the Russian authorities on the execution of legal assistance in the criminal investigation into the taking down of flight MH17.
The Dutch Prosecution Service has issued the first Letter of Request in this investigation in October 2014 and has since asked several additional questions. The Russian authorities have supplied information before, but have not answered all questions. The outstanding requests have now been discussed.
The Russian authorities have repeated their intention to cooperate with the investigation and are aware of the necessity to promptly execute the outstanding requests.
The level of cooperation of the Ukrainian authorities has not been the subject of conversation and the Dutch delegation has not made any statements on that, apart from the general fact that the cooperation within the JIT is excellent.
