Defence in MH17 Case Failed to Query Late Expert Who Had Info on Buk Missile System
"This witness was a military expert who shared [with us] information about the Buk missile system", Sabine ten Doesschate said on the sidelines of the trial, noting that the witness was questioned by the prosecution, after which his evidence was added to the case file.
"Depending on further statements by the prosecutor's office on the matter, we may contest the decision, as we did not have an opportunity to question him. It was extremely important to us. So, we are planning to raise the issue of whether we can now use this witness' statements, as we do not have an opportunity to question him anymore", the lawyer stressed.
