To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what progress he has made in achieving justice for the victims of flight MH17.
21 January 2020
The British Government continues to support the MH17 Joint Investigation Team whose extensive investigations have enabled the Dutch Public Prosecutor to commence criminal proceedings. We have made a financial contribution to the establishment of the Dutch court that will conduct the trial, which starts in March. This will help ensure that the families and friends of the victims receive answers, and that those responsible are held to account for this appalling crime. The government joins the Netherlands and Australia in calling on the Russian Federation to accept state responsibility, and to cooperate with the court to deliver justice for the victims of this tragedy.
