ATSB employees could face jail if information on MH370 is leaked

    Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) invoked legislation which does not require the bureau to release material about its search for missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 (The Australian, 17-Apr-2017). ATSB GM for strategic capability Colin McNamara refused The Australian newspaper’s ­request for information, claiming release could “cause damage the international relations of the commonwealth”. The ATSB warned that any bureau ­employee who provides such ­information to the public or a court could face two years in jail.
