Too much burden: Dutch prosecutor's office on verdict in criminal case MH17

The Dutch Public Prosecutor's Office refused to appeal the decision of the court in The Hague in the case of the crash flight MH17. Thus, the suspect Oleg Pulatov will not be held criminally liable.

The Dutch prosecutor's office has not appealed the verdict in the MH17 criminal case. The department stated that they were satisfied with the verdict of the court in The Hague, as stated on the official website of the Prosecutor's Office of the Netherlands.

The publication mentions that Igor Girkin, Sergey Dubinsky and Leonid Kharchenko were found guilty in the court in a plane crash, which took place on July 17, 2014 in the east of the Donetsk region. They were sentenced to life imprisonment.

It has been legally proven that the crash of the Boeing occurred as a result of a collision with a Buk missile. The Hague court found that the fourth suspect, Oleg Pulatov, was aware of the deployment of the anti-aircraft missile system and did not disagree on this matter.

Despite this, the court stated that Pulatov's criminal liability had not been proven. Thus the suspect was acquitted. The Dutch prosecutor's office decided not to appeal against the court's decisions.

“An appeal would be a great burden for the next of kin, as they would then remain in uncertainty about the outcome of the criminal case. Current court decisions offer the next of kin certainty on a number of important issues” , — they argued their position in the department.

The source notes that the court's decision on Pulatov's innocence has now become irrevocable. As for Girkin, Dubinsky and Kharchenko, they have the opportunity to appeal within fourteen days after the announcement of the final verdict.
