After more than a year of futile search for the missing MH370, a load full of rubbish were seen scattered in the Indian Ocean around Reunion Island in early-August. And guess what…a flaperon was retrieved amongst the piles.
That metal piece was quickly sent to France for further investigations and lab test. But…
Malaysian troubled PM Najib had found the perfect event to redirect the masses away from his predicaments and issued a press release that the flaperon is confirmed as belonged to the ill-fated MH370
Ho ho ho, and then…France refuted and said that the flaperon is NOT sure from MH370…
Meanwhile the general Malaysian public were not convinced and the families of MH370 too were furious with the unending lies from the Malaysian government.
The whole episode was quickly downplayed as its becoming farcical. Weeks later the Malaysian media reported yet another weird news about the Malaysian government is probably purchasing a aircraft carrier. WHAT? Malaysia don’t even have that much aircrafts to begin with!
Oh!…OK no aircrafts?… err… we’ll buy some (from the French) said the Minister of Defence Hishamuddin.
As expected Malaysians were in aghast….and…and…came in the French Defence Minister Le Drian for a visit and talks?
Le Drian flew into a Malaysian airbase on Monday with a high-level parliamentary and industry team, dubbed the French export team, and went on to meet Prime Minister Najib Razak and Defense Minister Hishammuddin Hussein. – Defense News
The rest is history as they say. France confirmed the flaperon found in the Indian Ocean indeed belonged to MH370!
Voila! The whole flip-flap-flaperon deal is reported to be worth RM3.5 Billion!
Merci beaucoup !
