Taking to Facebook to commemorate the 9th anniversary since MH370’s disappearance, former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said that Malaysians must accept the fact that the plane has vanished.

We must accept the fact that it happened. We don’t want it to happen, but it has, and we must accept the fact that the flight was lost along with the passengers and crew members.

“The major possibility is that they are no longer alive. It is believed that flight was taken over by other individuals and flown to another destination, the passengers’ fates were surely the same as the aircraft,” he wrote.

Mahathir added that he would be praying for the victims of MH370 and hoped the government would renew its efforts to search for the plane.

“However, if we don’t find the aircraft after years, we must accept the fact they were lost, even though it is difficult.”

What happened to MH370?

MH370 took off from from KLIA with 239 passengers onboard and was scheduled to land at the Beijing Capital International Airport at 6:30am Beijing time.

However, it lost contact with the Subang Air Traffic Control Center an hour later and was last seen flying over the South China Sea.

Since its disappearance, much resources have been poured in to locate it, but wreckage of the plane has yet to be found thus far.

Transport Minister Anthony Loke recently said that the government will look into resuming search efforts if ‘credible’ information were to arise.

The plane has also been the inspiration behind Netflix’s latest documentary “MH370: The Plane That Disappeared”, which premiered yesterday:
