The Malaysian government needed to conduct a briefing session to explain the evidence that Flight MN370 ended in the Indian Ocean to family members of the passengers, especially from China.
The request was voiced out by about 30 family members of the passengers, who arrived from China today.
They also hoped that the briefing could be held as soon as possible with the help of the Chinese embassy in Malaysia to explain the matter.
A representative from the family members of the passengers, who wished to be known only as Jiang Hui, said various briefings and explanation had been conducted in China but they were still unclear and wanted fully furnished data, particularly from the experts.
"In the 22 days of waiting, the answers we get from the Malaysia Airlines (MAS) are limited. Everything has to be referred to the Malaysian government first before any statement is given to us.
"Because of that we made the decision to come to Malaysia to get more information on the incident, especially from the airline experts like Rolls Royce and Boeing company as well as from the Malaysian government and MAS," he told reporters here.
Speaking in Mandarin, he said the passengers' family members also requested that the Malaysian government apologise for the delay in the dissemination of information on the missing plane.
Jiang said they hoped the Malaysian government could show sincerity in assisting them, in terms of providing authentic information.
"We will not leave Malaysia until we are satisfied with the explanation on the plane," he said.
It is understood that the group, received by Prime Minister's Special Envoy to China Tan Sri Ong Ka Ting, MCA Vice-President Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun and about 40 members of MCA's Crisis Relief Squad upon arrival early today, was being accomodated at the Holiday Villa Subang.
Flight MH370, which was carrying 227 passengers, including 152 Chinese nationals, and 12 crew, disappeared from the radars on March 8, about an hour after departing from the KL International Airport at 12.41 am. The plane was scheduled to arrive at Beijing at 6.30 am on the same day.
On March 24, 17 days after its disappearance, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak announced that Flight MH370 "ended in the southern Indian Ocean."
