Dutch police officer not prosecuted for attempting to sell MH17 souvenirs
A Dutch police officer who attempted to sell packets and tissues and other items from the MH17 crash site has managed to avoid prosecution-as the court rules that none of the items were obtained illegally.
The demoted officer had listed a number of 'objects' from the downed MH17 flight as 'wall decorations' including the clothes he wore while visiting the site of the crash which were listed for sale at €1500.
Dutch authorities had originally accused the officer of embezzlement but found that none of the items were obtained illegally as they were obtained outside the search area and therefore no crime was committed.
Instead authorities have claimed deemed the sale of the items 'unethical, inappropriate, offensive and shocking for victims and (their) relatives and our entire society."
