Malaysia ready for air crash lawsuits...........

The Malaysian government says it is preparing to face lawsuits arising from the twin tragedies that struck its national carrier Malaysia Airlines this year.
Malaysia says it s ready to face any charges in court arising from ill-fated flights MH17 and MH370.
"Malaysia is ready to face any charges in court," Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai said on Saturday, amid reports some relatives of Australian passengers of flight MH17, which crashed in Ukraine in July, were planning legal action against Malaysia, Ukraine and Russia.
Liow said he had not yet received any information about the planned action.
MH17 is suspected to have been shot down by Russian-backed Ukrainian rebels.
The flight, with 298 people aboard, was en route to Kuala Lumpur from Amsterdam when struck by a missile over eastern Ukraine on July 17.
On October 31, two Malaysians filed a negligence case against Malaysia Airlines and the government over the disappearance of another commercial aircraft, MH370, which disappeared in March.
The Beijing-bound flight, with 239 people aboard, disappeared without trace an hour after taking off from Kuala Lumpur International Airport on March 8.
