A German company called Wifka says it has been given $30 million by an anonymous client to use as a reward for information on the crash of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 over Ukraine in July. MH17 is widely believed to have been shot down by a missile, and all 298 individuals aboard were killed. Among the questions that Wifka is seeking to answer:

– Who shot down MH17 on July 17? 
– Who gave the order?
– Who covers up the shoot down? (Also, if it was by accident and not out of political, economic or military motivation)
– Who can provide details on the circumstances that led to the shoot down?
– Who was directly involved with the shoot down?
– What happened to the people that were involved with the shoot down? What happened to the weapon used?
– Who can name the people that cleared the shoot down?

A representative of Wifka told the German magazine Capital that he is not aware himself who his client is, USA Today says.

Writes Capital, according to this rough Internet translation: “Money, to loosen the tongues.” Indeed.
