KUALA LUMPUR: Revelations that at least two people used stolen passports to board a missing passenger jet raise serious “red flags” about security at Malaysia’s main international airport, analysts and Interpol have warned.
However, they cautioned against a rush to judgement, citing ongoing investigations and widespread disregard of international databases on stolen passports.
Flight MH370 disappeared over the waters between Malaysia and southern Vietnam early Saturday en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. No traces of the plane have been confirmed found.
… Kumar Ramakrishna, a security expert at Singapore’s S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies, said it should be easy for authorities to quickly access Interpol’s database.
“It may not be fair to finger the whole system in place there (at Kuala Lumpur International Airport),” he said.
