Bill Schabas on ABC News (Australia) about MH17 suspects
The Joint Investigation Team (JIT) which is carrying out the investigation into the MH17 disaster has identified four suspects who have been brought in connection with bringing down the aircraft. The four are to be prosecuted and as a result have been placed on international wanted lists.
It is the first time since the disaster in July 2014, in which 298 people were killed, that suspects have been charged with murder. The suspects are three Russians and one Ukrainian.
On Australian ABC News, Professor of International Criminal Law and Human Rights Bill Schabas talks about the investigation into the disaster and the four suspects. Besides the Dutch victims, there were also many Australian victims in the disaster.
