There are no legal obstacles for Russia to become part of a Joint investigative group (SSG) in the case of the crash Malaysian Boeing MH17 in Ukraine in 2014. This statement was made by a Dutch lawyer Sabine ten Doeschate representing the interests of the accused Oleg Pulatova, reports RIA Novosti.
The lawyer added that Moscow signed the UN Convention against transnational organized crime, so the Russian side should be given “the opportunity to Express their point of view,” in the case of the plane crash.
“Unlike the investigation that led the security Council of the Netherlands (DSB), Russia was not a member of SSG. At the same time Ukraine was,” said Sabine ten Doeschate. She recalled that in 2015 Russia tried to join the investigation team, but the Dutch Prosecutor’s office rejected this request.
The court in Boeing MH17 in the district court of the Hague resumed on 8 June. The number of people in the meeting room is limited because of the quarantine. Allowed two representatives from each side, the defendants did not attend the meeting, they are in fact, involved only lawyers Oleg Pulatova.
