Geological survey firm GeoResonance Pty Lt, based in Adelaide, said it hadn’t suffered any backlash from issuing its public claim to have found the wreckage of MH370 in the Bay of Bengal.

“We cannot judge about awareness that our business has created. What we know for sure is that our claim has unearthed numerous pseudo scientists in the form of media commentators,” said managing director Pavel Kursa.

He said GeoResonance had consulted its clients before approaching the media with the MH370 wreckage claim and its clients had encouraged the firm to alert the authorities.

GeoResonance’s clients mainly comprise mining companies searching for minerals, oil and gas hidden deep under ocean floors.

Asked if there had been any new interest in the firm’s services since the claim, Kursa told The Rakyat Post: “We have only received invitations to scientific conferences.”

As to possible questions raised about the impact of the claim on its business reputation, Kursa said: “We are busy doing survey projects.”

Touching further on the MH370 wreckage claim, he said: “There are people who tried to discredit our technology without having proper knowledge of what the company does.”

Having read that thus far only Bangladesh navy ships had gone to investigate the GeoResonance claims, he said: “As far as Bangladeshi Navy checking our findings, we firmly believe that our findings have not been checked at all.

“The media mentioned ‘three Bangladeshi ships scouring the Bay of Bengal’.  However, what does ‘scouring’ mean?

“We reported the precise location. Given the margin of error, the reported area size was only 500 sq metres! What was required is to send just one ship to the specified coordinates and check the location with a sonar.

“GeoResonance remains quietly confident on our reported finding in the Bay of Bengal.

“We are considering verifying the location ourselves. Two words to all the sceptics: ‘Test us!'”

“If there are quarters which say there’s restriction on expression of opinions and views, the RoS can provide empirical evidence that the registered organisations are proof that the government gives such freedom. There is freedom of speech and movement; you can be as vociferous as you want so long as you do not threaten public order. Go on and gather as many members as you want so long as you do not touch on sensitive matters and violate the law, including the Sedition Act.”

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi saying the government has never restricted freedom of speech, pointing out that 116,000 organisations were registered with the Registrar of Societies (RoS).
