Malaysia Airlines is again on the news. After being hit by two tragedies, the tragic loss of flight MH370 and the crash of flight MH17 hit by a missile in Ukraine, the company is again making headlines for the sexual assault on a female passenger by one of its employees.
A purser was indeed arrested for sexual assault on a passenger in a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Paris, sources close to the investigation announced on Tuesday.
The case dates back to last Tuesday when an Australian passenger boarded a Malaysia Airlines plane. Marked by the two recent disasters, she expressed deep concerns about the safety of the flight to the crew. The purser then offered to sit next to her in order, he said, the “comfort” her. The “nice” gesture, however, quickly turned into sexual assault.
On her arrival at the airport of Roissy-Charles de Gaulle in Paris, the passenger contacted the police and explained what has happened on the plane. Questioned two days later, the purser confessed. He was taken in custody after being indicted.
