Malaysia 'owes it to travellers to check passports'

Interpol has said that because Malaysian authorities had not checked the passenger passport database: "two individuals possessing stolen Austrian and Italian passports were able to board MH 370."

Had Malaysia consulted Interpol's database, the fact that both passengers were using stolen passports would have been discovered almost instantaneously.

Malaysia’s Immigration Department owes it to all passengers boarding flights originating in, or passing through, Malaysia to make sure that passports registered as stolen or lost in Interpol's databases cannot be used to board any flight.
