The MH17 Joint Investigation Team has announced that four members of Russia’s military have been formally charged with the murders of the 289 passengers and crew of the downed airliner. The charges will be heard by the Criminal Court of Schipol in the Netherlands, although Russia is unlikely to allow the four men to be extradited. None of the accused was directly responsible for firing the missile that downed the Malaysia Airlines plane in July 2014, but Dutch chief prosecutor Fred Westerbeke says that under his nation’s criminal law, people who played an organising role can also be held liable.
