    The Malaysian government has approved a new attempt to find the wreckage of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 in the Indian Ocean, the transport minister said Saturday.
    A U.S.-based company early this week dispatched the search vessel Seabed Constructor to look for debris in the southern Indian Ocean, 3 ½ years after the Boeing 777 disappeared on a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 227 passengers and 12 crew.

    The governments of Malaysia, China and Australia called off the 1,046-day official search on Jan. 17 last year without solving the mystery. The Australian Transport Safety Bureau’s final report on the search conceded that authorities were no closer to knowing the reasons for the plane’s disappearance, or its exact location.

    “The basis of the offer from Ocean Infinity is based on ‘no cure, no fee,'” Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai said Saturday. It means that payment will be made only if the company finds the wreckage.

    “That means they are willing to search the area of 25,000 square kilometers pointed out by the expert group near the Australian waters,” he said.

    However, he said, “I don’t want to give too much hope … to the (next of kin).” He said his government was committed to continue with the search.

    He did not offer other details.

    Ocean Infinity said in this week’s statement that the vessel, which left the South African port of Durban on Tuesday, was taking advantage of favorable weather to move toward “the vicinity of the possible search zone.”

    The company searching for MH-370 hires a London based “cloak and dagger” PR Firm with ties to the CIA.

    Ocean Infinity has hired a former partner of the now defunct controversial British International PR firm Bell/ Pottinger to handle its “strategic communications”.

    Mark Antelme, Managing Director of Celicourt Communications (http://www.celicourt.uk/#team) states in his bio that he headed the natural resources practice at Bell Pottinger where he was a Partner and that he has served 5 years in the British Military.

    The Bell / Pottinger firm has been described on Wikipedia.com [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bell_Pottinger] as having "the most controversial client list" in the PR industry.[ Pace, Richard, "Bell Pottinger Wins: Bail Extended for Atlaf Hussain's Money Laundering Charges", Everything PR, 7 October 2015. Retrieved: 9 October 2015.] It has been criticized numerous times for conflict-of-interest edits that the company has made on Wikipedia pages that involve or are about their clients. According to the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, the company was hired by the Pentagon to work in Iraq, making fake terror and news-style videos, targeting al-Qaeda, for the reported sum of $540m. [Rebello, Lara (3 October 2016). "Thatcher PR guru Lord Bell ran a $540m Pentagon false propaganda campaign in Iraq". International Business Times. Retrieved 8 September 2017.]

    It was revealed on October 2, 2016 that the United States Department of Defense paid Bell Pottinger $540 million to create fake terrorist videos, fake news articles for Arab news channels and propaganda videos.[ Crofton Black; Abigail Fielding-Smith; Jon Ungoed-Thomas (2 October 2016). "Lord Bell ran $540m covert PR ops in Iraq for Pentagon". The Times. London. Retrieved 12 October 2016][ Crofton Black, Abigail Fielding-Smith (2 October 2016). "Pentagon Paid for Fake 'Al Qaeda' Videos". The Daily Beast. Retrieved 12 October 2016.]

    An investigation by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism revealed the details of the multimillion-pound operation. Bell Pottinger is understood to have been funded some $540 million from the US Department of Defence (DoD) for five contracts from May 2007 to December 2011, according to The Times and the Bureau of Investigative Journalism.[ Fielding-Smith, Abigail; Black, Crofton; Ungoed-Thomas, Jon (2 October 2016). "Soap operas and fakery: selling peace in Iraq". The Times.] [http://labs.thebureauinvestigates.com/fake-news-and-false-flags] Lord Bell confirmed Bell Pottinger reported to the Pentagon, the CIA and the U.S. National Security Council on its work in Iraq.[Gordon, Amie (2 October 2016). "PR firm set up by Margaret Thatcher's spin doctor ran a 'top-secret' £416m propaganda operation during Iraq war writing soap operas and tracking al-Qaeda terrorists using fake jihad films". The Daily Mail.]

    A September 2017 review by law firm Herbert Smith Freehills [Review by Herbert Smith Freehills, published September 2017] concluded that the firm had breached ethical standards, lacked appropriate policies for managing controversial accounts, and had brought the PR industry into disrepute, and the Public Relations and Communications Association (PRCA) said the firm had received a "damning indictment", having breached four of its conduct charter clauses.[ Withers, Ian (4 September 2017). "Bell Pottinger kicked out of PR trade body as report slams 'race hate' South Africa campaign". Telegraph. Retrieved 8 September 2017.]

    Question: Why would Ocean Infinity hire a PR firm with this kind of pedigree and past associations?

    To help the continual cover up of the commandeering of MH370 to keep safe national security secret material/s from reaching China/Russia. Might as well use a firm who're now professionals in Bullsh!t metrics and fake videos to fool the lemmings.
