Malaysia: Malaysia has ruled out releasing raw satellite data to the families of the 239 people on board the missing MH370.

Commenting on the request from the families of those on board Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200 for the government to release raw satellite data, Acting Transport Minister Hishamuddin Hussein said it was better for the International Panel of Experts to decide which information should be made public.

The transport ministry is preparing a joint cabinet paper with the defence and foreign ministries on the outcome of the tripartite ministerial meeting between Malaysia, Australia and China in Australia. Hishamuddin said the cabinet paper, among others, would put forward suggestions by the tripartite meeting on the new search phase for the plane.

The new phase of search includes an analysis and refinement of the Inmarsat satellite data and the mapping of the seabed in the southern Indian Ocean, where the flight was believed to have ended, he told media.
