Controversy over former Australian Prime Minister's comment on Malaysian plane crash

Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 departed from the Malaysian capital, Kuala Lumpur, towards the Chinese capital, Beijing, on March 8, 2014 at 12.41pm. But the plane disappeared from the radar within minutes. The flight was later deemed magical and the search was accelerated.

Despite years of searching for the aircraft, the location of the plane's crash is unknown. The collapse of this plane remains a mystery.

Australia, Malaysia and China have jointly announced that they will cease their search for a submarine aircraft in 2017. How the plane crashed and how it crashed remains a mystery to this day.
Former Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott has said that Malaysia believes the MH370 has crashed.

Reagarding this Abbott said that " High-ranking Malaysian officials believed veteran pilot Zaharie Ahmad Shah deliberately downed the jet Malaysia's MH 370 aircraft into the sea" and also said that " I'm not going to say who said what to whom. But I can only say with certainty that the Malaysian authorities believed that the pilot's suicide and murder were the cause of the accident."

However, Malaysian public aviation authorities have condemned  Tony Abbott's comments.
