A new document, leaked from the files of the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) in The Netherlands, discloses that Dutch prosecutors told the Australian, Belgian and Ukrainian representatives on the team, that the US Government had not presented any satellite evidence of a BUK missile firing at Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17. The aircraft was destroyed above eastern Ukraine on July 17, 2014, killing all 298 people on board.
The meeting was held at the Dutch National Police Central Crime Unit at Driebergen. The Ukrainian official took part by video link to the Ukrainian Embassy in The Hague.
The disclosure of their classified meeting record took place at a public briefing in London this week by Max van der Werff and Yana Yerlashova, the Bonanza Media partners in a long-running independent investigation of the MH17 crash.

The presentation in London by van der Werff and Yerlashova on Tuesday lasted for just over two hours; excerpts of the new documents were presented and discussed at Minute 1:27:00. The five-page record of the December 2015 and February 2016 JIT meetings was drafted in English by an Australian police notetaker. For the full record, read Bonanza Leaks.

The audio tapes, to which Kerry was indicating, have later been proved by Malaysian and German investigations, and by reporting by van der Werff and Yerlashova, to have been Ukrainian fabrications. Akash Rosen presented fresh technical evidence at the Bonanza Media briefing in London this week. Minute 44: 47.
In his analysis of the JIT presentation van der Werff commented in April of 2017: “The circle can be closed this way. The United States in the background determines what evidence will or will not be used and which material remains unverifiable for third parties, lawyers of the suspects and even for the judges.”
The JIT and MIVD files now show that Westerbeke was lying in public. With access to those files from the beginning, the Australian police working at the JIT had reason for the skepticism they showed in private at many of Westerbeke’s public claims. Last December Westerbeke was excluded from the JIT, and appointed chief of police at Rotterdam. It is not clear whether that’s a punishment for his performance at JIT or a benefit for the criminal prosecutors in the courts of Rotterdam. “This step is good news for the Rotterdam region,” announced the city mayor. “He is the right man in the right place to tackle the security issues in this region.”
