MH370: GBP20,000 mysteriously withdrawn from accounts of four passengers post tragedy
Cash worth 20,000 pounds has been mysteriously withdrawn from personal bank accounts of four passengers of the ill-fated Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 in the month of July.
According to Mirror, the flight went missing five months ago and yet the cash machine withdrawals for a total of 111,000 RM, or GBP20, 916, are believed to have taken place in July.
Confirming the disappearance of the large sum of money, City Commercial Crime Investigation Department chief Asst Comm Izany Abdul Ghany said the department was investigating the case as unauthorised access with intent to commit an offence.
The suspicious withdrawals were noticed by the banks in Kuala Lumpur on July 18th.
Izany, meanwhile, did not rule out the possibility of an inside job at the bank, saying that police were "investigating all the angles," the report said.
The Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew members went missing five months ago.
Malaysian Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai, last week, said he would meet Australian leaders to sign a "memorandum of understanding" on the two countries collaboration in their search for the missing jetliner.
Liow ensured that the search for MH370 would continue despite the recent tragedy of MH17, shot down by missile over eastern Ukraine, the report added.
