The FBI is now also reportedly assisting restore the flight history files to see whether they can find anything in the hope of piecing together what may have happened on the plane.
Now the two main directions of the investigation are focusing on the Captain, even though the authorities still consider Shah innocent until proven guilty.
Shah was a known advocate of the Malaysian opposition party, and reportedly attended the trial of party leader Anwar Ibrahim in the hours just before the flight.
The leader of Malaysia’s opposite party Anwar Ibrahim has criticized the slow progress of the investigation. Anwar has also condemned the media for highlighting the family relationship between him and Captain Shah, saying the media is just trying to blur the focus.
Anwar has also pointed out that Captain Shah was not even supposed to captain flight MH370, and that he was assigned to it at the very last minute.
