Speaking at a news conference on Monday, 17 March 2014 Hishammuddin Hussein, Minister of Defence and Acting Minister of Transport, summarised the status of the investigation by the Royal Malaysia Police:-

Police investigation

On Saturday 8 March, the Royal Malaysia Police started investigations into all crew members on board MH370, including the pilot and co-pilot, as well as all ground staff handling the aircraft.

On Sunday 9 March, police officers visited the homes of the pilot and co-pilot. Officers also spoke to family members of the pilot and co-pilot.

Police visited the homes of the pilot and co-pilot again on Saturday 15 March. The pilot’s flight simulator was taken from his house with the assistance of his family. The simulator was re-assembled at police headquarters.

At this point, I would like to stress that Malaysia has been co-operating with the FBI, Interpol and other relevant international law enforcement authorities since day one.

Day 2 - Sunday, 9 March 2014

KEMAMAN, March 9 ― Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said Malaysian police are working with international intelligence agencies to investigate the missing of Malaysia Airlines (MAS) Flight MH370.

He said police were gathering information from various parties apart from reviewing the closed circuit television recordings at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport prior to the departure of flight.

Police were not attributing terrorist threat as the main factor for the disappearance of Flight MH370 but did not rule out such a possibility, he told a media conference here today.

As such, he told the people not to speculate on the identities of the passengers reported to have boarded the aircraft using forged passports.

At a media conference in the federal capital today, Acting Transport Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said the names of four passengers who were alleged to be travelling on forged passports had been hand over to local and foreign intelligence agencies for further investigations.

Elaborating further, Khalid said police would also be deploying their personnel to assist in the search and rescue operation.
