The Dutch Parliament fears that those responsible for shooting down Malaysian Airlines MH17, an attack that killed 298 over the skies of war-torn eastern Ukraine, will be granted amnesty under the Minsk II peace agreement reached on February 12.

One of the agreed points in the reached Minsk deal is to pardon those who may have committed a war crime in Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts. This particular point has caused political outrage in the Netherlands, which is leading the criminal investigation of the MH17 crash. It is feared that those responsible for downing MH17 could never be held legally liable.
