My son has done no wrong, says father of flight engineer on MH370

PUTRAJAYA (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - The father of aviation engineer Mohd Khairul Amri Selamat, who was on board the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, refuted the possibility that his son would have anything to do with the plane's disappearance.

Mr Selamat Omar, 60, was agitated when the question was posed to him, and openly declared that "my son would have done no wrong".

"No authority contacted me to say they will be searching my son's house.

"Even if they do, we have nothing to hide. They can come search the house if need be," he said.

Asked if he knew where his son was employed, Mr Selamat said Mohd Khairul was working with a private company but did not know what it was called.

"My son works on private planes, and has often travelled to places like Sydney, India and the United States to repair planes," he added.
