Two family members of a man onboard the ill-fated flight MH370 have sued Malaysia Airlines and the country’s government on claims that the airliner breached its agreement to deliver the passenger safely to Beijing, Want China Times reports.
The two boys were sons of Jee Jing Hang, a businessman on board the missing flight. They are pressing charges against Malaysia’s government, civil aviation authorities, the immigration department and air force for negligence.
They claimed that when their father paid for the ticket, he had made an agreement with MAS for a safe journey to Beijing. The airline breached that agreement when the plane failed to reach the destination on March 8.
They are seeking aggravated and exemplary damages for the loss of support and mental anguish caused by the tragedy.
A total of 239 people were onboard the Malaysian Airlines flight when it suddenly disappeared from the radar on March 8. After months of false leads, searchers are at this point closer to figuring out the 77-year-old mystery of Amelia Earhart’s disappearance than what happened to the vanished flight.
