Brother Of Missing Saudi Pilot Laments Very Weak Support Of Philippine Government/Saudi Embassy In Finding His Brother

Three days after the disappearance on May 17, Philippines Civil Aviation Authority (CAAP) said that debris of an airplane was found in the area including a bag containing the pilot instructor's identification cards and other personal belongings have also been found. There is still no trace of the Saudi Arabian pilot trainee.

“Our investigators are just on standby. They still could not assess the debris that was found May 20 and, without the rest of the wreckage, they are also not in a position to investigate,” 
Eric Apolonio, a spokesman for the Philippines Civil Aviation Authority (CAAP) said.

But Al-Sharif’s brother, Abdul Majeed, criticized what he described as “very weak” search efforts by Philippines authorities as well as the Saudi Embassy in Manila for its lack of help.
