German Company Offers Bounty For MH17 Attackers

A German company is offering $30 million for information and evidence about who shot down Malaysian flight MH17 over Ukraine in July.

The fraud investigation company Wifka said in a statement posted on its website an anonymous "client" was putting up the reward money and promising "to give the whistle-blower a new identity."

Among the questions Wifka said it wants to know are "who shot down MH17 on July 17? Who gave the order? Who covers up the shoot down? Who was directly involved? What happened to the people that were involved in the shoot down?"

The Wifka statement noted all 298 people aboard the plane died and despite pledges from governments and international organizations "to clarify the circumstances of the crash and present evidence for what happened…none of this has been done."

RFE/RL has been declared an "undesirable organization" by the Russian government.
