Bellingcat founder Eliot Higgins: New defendants may appear in MH17 case

Higgins suggests that new defendants may appear before trial in March 2020

This was stated by founder of Bellingcat research group Eliot Higgins in an interview with Ukrinform.

"I do not know about witnesses and other similar details, but perhaps more people will be convicted before the trial begins in March 2020. It will be a long process, I expect the first hearing to be rather administrative, and the actual trial will start later," he said.

Bellingcat is an online publication founded by British journalist and blogger Eliot Higgins on July 15, 2014, two days before the plane crash.
