The Mirror reports that accounts from four passengers were accessed from an ATM in Kuala Lumpur on July 18. A total of more than 111,000 Malaysian ringgit (AU$37,464) was withdrawn, bank authorities said.
Assistant Commissioner Izany Abdul Ghany from Kuala Lumpur police said they were investigating all angles, including the possibility that it was an insider job.
“We are getting CCTV footage from the bank to identify the suspects involved,” the Mirror reported him as saying.
Nearly $35,000 has been mysteriously withdrawn from four bank accounts belonging to victims of the doomed Malaysia Airlines Flight MH 370 that vanished more than five months ago, according to local reports.
The transactions are believed to have occurred sometime in July, long after all 227 passengers and 12 crew members disappeared during that fateful March 8 flight, The Straits Times reported.
The bank, said to be in Kuala Lumpur but not specifically named, first noticed the withdrawals on July 18, according to Kuala Lumpur's Senior Deputy Police Commissioner Tajuddin Md Isa.
PUTRAJAYA: The main suspect, who allegedly withdrew RM111,000 from the bank accounts of four passengers of the missing Malaysia Airlines MH370 plane, has been identified by the police.
Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said the suspect, who made the fraudulent withdrawals, is believed to be an employee of that bank.
It is believed that the money was illegally transferred by the employee and the withdrawals were done in stages over the past five months.
ACP Izany has not ruled out the possibility of an inside job at the bank, saying that police were "investigating all the angles".

I read this a few days after the crash in the MSM believe it or not. At that time they were blaming the "rebels" for looting the crash victims because the scene was not secured for quite some time after the crash. Still cant wait until they identify these scumbags.
