Human remains still at MH17 crash site - Dutch reporter


. Contrary to the Dutch government’s statements, human remains can still be found on the site of the flight MH17 crash in eastern Ukraine, Dutch reporter Michel Spekkers told TASS Friday.

"Yes, I think it is still possible. I have seen more remains there myself," he said.

Dutch journalists Stefan Beck and Michel Spekkers spent eight days in Donbass at the end of 2016 and the beginning of 2017 interviewing local residents who showed them the site of the fallout of the debris, human remains and luggage. Michel Spekkers found a bone looking like a human one at the site.

Upon arrival in Amsterdam, the two reporters were detained by the Dutch police who confiscated from them the materials gathered in Donbass and all the equipment including storage cards, cameras and cell phones. Testing showed that the bone indeed belonged to a victim of the tragedy.
