The wife of New Zealander Paul Weeks, who was on Malaysia
Airlines Flight MH370 when it vanished, will probably reject an
offer of compensation.
Families of passengers on the missing flight have started
receiving payments of $50,000 each.
More than 40 Chinese families are having their claims
assessed by insurers and can claim up to $175,000 each.
Danica Weeks told the Herald on Sunday she was aware of the
payments, but said that her claim was being reviewed by a
"Most likely I'll be rejecting it at this point. I shouldn't
really divulge why," she said.
Christchurch-born Paul Weeks was among the 239 passengers on
board the flight when it vanished in March.
His wife said she and her two young sons, Jack 1, and
Lincoln, 3, were still struggling and they are no closer to
getting any answers from Malaysian authorities.
"We still want the truth, nothing much has changed since day
one. Any questions that I have asked they haven't answered,
they haven't spoken to me," she said.
"It's unbelievable, on top of everything we're already going
through - it's just a shocker."
Danica Weeks and the families of other missing passengers are
now supporting a crowd-funding campaign to uncover what
happened to the missing boeing.
The campaign is offering $3.22 million for whistleblower
information to uncover information they believe is being
withheld by by authorities.
