MH370 : Another reason why the world no longer believes what the Malaysian Government says.

There have been criticism made of Malaysia's handling of the MH370 incident by China and many others as evident from the unfavorable comments in medias overseas. Following are two articles regarding the final cockpit communication from MH370. The first article is from Yahoo!7 and Agencies and the second one from FMT in Malaysia.

All Malaysia had to do to tell the world that what Malaysian authorities are saying is the truth is to release the transcript of the final cockpit communication but instead what Hishamuddin said was:
“The original transcript is with the investigation team. They need to analyse it, however, the details cannot be published to the media,”
“I can confirm to you that there was nothing abnormal in it,”  

It would be more credible if Hishamuddin just release the transcript and end the speculation!
Does he not understand that his words are no longer believed by those inside and outside Malaysia? 
Transcript reveals final cockpit communication from MH370:
March 21, 2014, 11:35 am

The final communications within the cockpit of the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 have reportedly been revealed.
A transcript of the last 54 minutes of conversations between the co-pilot, the control tower and other air traffic authorities, includes a point at which investigators believe the plane was sabotaged.

Experts say the messages and conversation appeared "perfectly routine" but pointed out that two features were potentially odd.

At 1:07am, a message from the cockpit told authorities that the plane was flying at 35,000ft. This raised some eyebrows as it repeated a message delivered only six minutes earlier.
Adding to the suspicion of crew intervention, it happened just moments before the plane's ACARS signalling device sent its final message before being disabled.

Secondly, it appears that the loss of communication and subsequent change of MH370's direction occurred at the point where the air traffic control in Kuala Lumpur were to handover to those in Ho Chi Minh City.
"If I was going to steal the aeroplane, that would be the point I would do it," said Stephen Buzdygan, a former British Airways pilot.
"There might be a bit of dead space between the air traffic controllers. It was the only time during the flight they would maybe not have been able to be seen from the ground."
The development was reported in London's Telegraph, which claimed to have received no confirmation from authorities.
The Daily Telegraph has repeatedly asked Malaysia Airlines, Malaysia's Civil Aviation Authority and the office of Najib Razak, the Malaysian prime minister, to confirm the communications record; only the prime minister's office responded, saying it would not release this data.

DCA: Communications transcript not accurate

 | March 22, 2014

The Department of Civil Aviation says the voice recording transcript between the pilot of the ill fated MH370 and the control tower, minutes before the Boeing 777-200ER aircraft went missing is inaccurate.

The voice recording transcript, released by a British daily today, between the main control tower and flight MH370 minutes before the aircraft went missing is inaccurate.
“I can tell you that the transcript is not accurate,” Department of Civil Aviation director general Azharuddin Abdul Rahman Azharuddin said today.
He, however, refused to divulge details on the matter when pressed by the media at the daily press conference on the missing MH370, today.
The Daily Telegraph published a report of the last 54 minutes of communications between the pilot and the control tower saying that the plane was flying at 10,700m.
The transcript runs from the time the Boeing 777-200ER was taxiing to its last-known position thousands of metres above the South China Sea and includes exchanges from the point where investigators believe the plane had already been sabotaged.
Acting Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein at the same press conference revealed that the original transcript is currently being analysed by the investigation team and said, the details of the communications cannot be disclosed to the public.
He, however, confirmed that there was nothing abnormal in the communications between the two parties.
“The original transcript is with the investigation team. They need to analyse it, however, the details cannot be published to the media,”
“I can confirm to you that there was nothing abnormal in it,” he added.
