Please Dato Seri clarify this for the families of those on board MH370, and all concerned peoples who have not stopped praying to find out what happened.
It has been stated over and over again by the chief of MAS that the Lithium batteries were packed and sent "according to procedures," but after having gone through the IATA Lithium Battery Guidance document I see one very glaring item that is of grave concern regarding the shipment of these batteries.
If that was a mistake we should admit it and move on if it isn't and if it was alright to ship these batteries then the MAS chief should lend clarity to his statements, not justt say we packed it according procedures set by IATA/ICAO, as this question has been asked severla times and I am of the opinion it is being followed by the press.
The Malaysiakini reported in its article
"Australians upbeat search will yield results"
reported as follows;
"MAS in a statement says the lithium-ion batteries that were part of the flight's cargo complied with standards.
"The lithium-ion batteries carried onboard MH370 on March 8 were in compliance with the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) requirements where it is classified as Non Dangerous Goods," it said."
Now let us view what the regulations says; Please note what is in red, below in the regulations quoted.
