Services To Remember MH17 Victims

WA Premier Colin Barnett announced WA will hold a state service to remember the victims of MH17.

Condolence books will be available to the public to express their thoughts on this tragedy; one of them will be placed at Parliament House in Perth.

Mr Barnett has again expressed his sorrow and sympathy to the victims’ families. He said he will write a personal letter to the families who lost their love ones.

“Can I again express my heartfelt sympathy to the families and friends of those who sadly lost their lives. An innocent loss of lives in a far away place,” Mr Barnett said.

“I also thank the West Australian community for its expression of sympathy and support to the families of those who lost their lives, including schools where children have been attending.”

The Premier said WA Police have asked the Victim Identification Unit to standby for deployment if it’s needed.

However, it will be up to the Federal Government to set a date of when the unit will be deployed. A national service will also be held, a date is yet to be set.
