KUALA LUMPUR - The Opposition has been urged to stop politicising the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 immediately.

MCA president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai pointed out that the plane's disappearance was most tragic, and the Government was doing its utmost to locate it.

"We are all very sad and yet have to face attacks from interested parties," he added.

Liow said the Government, with the help of many other organisations, was also going all out to help the families whose loved ones were in the flight.

He said MCA vice-president Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun had left for Beijing on Sunday to lend emotional support to these families.

Selangor senior executive councillor Datuk Teng Chang Khim had tweeted and poked fun at Chew, saying it was a blessing in disguise for her to lose the Kajang by-election because she was now the special envoy to China.

Chew lost the March 23 polls to PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail.

Liow said Chew was fluent in Mandarin and the Government hoped she would be able to communicate with and help the affected families during this very difficult time.

Chew, who founded the MCA'S crisis relief squad or CRSM, has some training and experience on relief work, he added.
