The court has obtained important evidence that the rocket shot down an MH17 passenger plane over eastern Ukraine.
A court in Amsterdam said on Tuesday that the remains were collected at some locations of the Russian Buk missile.
Prosecutors believe that such missiles shot down a Malaysian passenger plane over the conflict zone in eastern Ukraine in July 2014.
According to court records, nine parts of the Buku rocket were found at the crash site.
Small metal parts were also found in the pilot’s body, baggage and aircraft wreckage. According to estimates by several experts, these parts belonged to the Buk missile.
The court also showed photos of the wreck reconstructed from the wreck, showing thousands of bullet holes. The largest damage occurred on the left side of the cockpit where the rocket allegedly exploded.
On July 17, 2014, a Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 passenger plane flew from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur.
Four men-three Russians and one Ukrainian-were accused of participating in the plane crash, which killed all 298 people on board. All defendants were fugitives and were tried in absentia in a specially guarded building near Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.
Given that most of the victims are from the Netherlands, the trial is ongoing in that country. After years of investigation, the main hearing began on Monday. No judgment is expected before the end of the year.
