THE owner of vehicle registration number MH370 has finally been found.
He is army retiree Othman Ahmad, 68 from Masjid Tanah, Malacca and the registration number belongs to a 35-year-old C70 Honda motorcycle, reported Metro Ahad.
The registration number, is now being sought after as it is the same as the code of the MAS plane that went missing while flying from KLIA to Beijing in April.
Othman came forward to “claim” the number after a Facebook posting showing a car with a similar registration number went viral.
He said before the picture of the car with the MH370 registration number was posted in Facebook, two men had offered him RM500 to buy the motorcycle. The motorcycle, he said, has been lying unused in his son’s workshop in need of repair.
He however declined the offer after his son told him of the significance of the registration number.
The retiree, who now rears goats and chicken for a living, said he is willing to part with the motorcycle if somebody offers him a reasonable price for it. He plans to donate part of the proceed to charitable bodies. - Star Online
