27 March 2014 Last updated at 02:30 GMT

Both Malaysia Airlines and Boeing are facing legal action over the missing flight MH370.

A US-based law firm has filed a court motion, alleging that the plane crashed due to mechanical failure.

The petition is seeking to obtain the identity of manufacturers of various plane components, and the company or person who last inspected the fuselage and provided maintenance.

Paul Ng, the head of aviation at the law firm Stephenson Harwood, speaks to Rico Hizon.
