Families of MH17 Victims Take Legal Action

As the second anniversary of the downing of MH17 approaches, several family members of victims of the incident have decided to file compensation claims – both against Russia and Malaysia Airlines. Dr. Jill Coster van Voorhout, Senior Researcher at The Hague Institute, spoke to AFP about the upcoming anniversary and legal procedures, as well as the role of fact-finding in the MH17 case. Her comments were quoted in the Daily Mail and L’Avenir.

“There will always be legal resorts and procedures available… once the facts have been established.”
