Transcript released by Britain's Daily Telegraph not accurate, says DCA

SEPANG - The transcript of the final conversation between the pilots and air traffic control of the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 released by British newspaper Daily Telegraph "is not accurate".

"The transcript between the pilots and air traffic control with the investigation team and is being analysed, but it cannot be publicly released," said Department of Civil Aviation Director General Datuk Azharuddin Abdul Rahman.

He said that the transcript of the final 54 minutes of communication did not "indicate anything abnormal".

The Daily Telegraph published a transcript of the cockpit communication with air traffic control on their website on Saturday, but it was labelled as inaccurate because it was a double translation.

The British newspaper received the Mandarin translation of the English conversation, which was then translated back to English and published on their website.
