The Dutch Government has decided to launch a missile attack on Moscow in October. By suppressing all evidence obtained from the bodies of victims of the crash of Malaysian Airlines MH17, officials of the Dutch Safety Board and associated Dutch military officers, police and prosecutors are preparing to release a report on the crash with a gaping hole in its veracity.
At the same time, and apparently unknown in The Netherlands, an Australian coroners’ report on the identification and forensic testing of the bodies carried out in The Netherlands reveals post-mortem evidence to show that in their public statements the Dutch government officials have been lying about metal evidence they claim to have found. This evidence has not only been buried with the passengers’ remains. It has been buried by the Dutch Government and by coroners in the UK and Australia, who are now legally required to investigate independently what caused the deaths of citizens in their jurisdiction. All are withholding the CT scans, X-rays, autopsy and other post-mortem results, including metallurgical assays, the documentation of which accompanied the coffins of the aircraft’s victims from The Netherlands to their homelands.

A new computed tomography (CT) scanner at Glebe Morgue could speed up post mortems and reduce the number of internal examinations forensic pathologists carry out on the deceased.
The NSW government’s $600,000 scanner captures detailed 3-D imaging of bones, internal tissues and organs – even through a body bag or clothes – making the job of forensic pathologists easier, quicker and potentially less invasive.
The scanner can detect fractures, various natural causes – including a stroke – and injury patterns stemming from different traumas, such as gunshot wounds.
NSW Health Minister Jillian Skinner said that in some cases the scanner could eliminate the need for an internal examination of the body.
“This sophisticated tool allows forensic pathologists to prepare more comprehensive reports for the NSW Coroner and, in some cases, determine cause of death faster,” Ms Skinner said.

The Court of Appeal in Brisbane has reserved its decision on a challenge against Gerard Baden-Clay’s murder conviction.
Lawyers appealing against Baden-Clay’s life sentence, with a 15-year non-parole period, for the murder of his wife Allison Baden-Clay in 2012 today said it was possible he unintentionally killed her.
The appeal decision will be handed down at a later date.

Earlier in The Sydney Morning Herald – Miranda Forster:
Lawyers for former real estate agent Gerard Baden-Clay say it’s possible he unintentionally killed his wife, Allison, then panicked and covered up her death.
The 44-year-old’s defence team has appealed the jury’s guilty verdict at his trial last year, arguing it was unreasonable.
Before a packed courtroom, defence barrister Michael Copley QC argued there was no solid evidence Baden-Clay intentionally killed his wife and tried to cover it up.
He said circumstantial facts, such as the presence of fingernail scratches on the father-of-three’s face and Allison’s blood in the family car, did not prove murder.
