“Over the past four years, I have tried my level best to assist in the search for MH370 and I am ever resolute in finding answers we all seek towards this unfortunate tragedy as we owe it to the families and loved ones,” said Azharuddin in the statement announcing his resignation. “I am saddened to have to leave under these circumstances.”
Azharuddin’s announcement comes soon after the Malaysian government released a report on the potential causes of MH370’s disappearance. The report doesn’t identify any one cause as the reason for MH370’s disappearance, saying that the plane’s wreckage needs to be found before the true reason for the crash can be determined.
