The report says they could find no one onboard with malicious intent. In the press conference the “inspector-in-charge” said the power failures to the communication systems(transponder,acars,satcom) were either turned off, OR power to them failed.

This means we are talking about a mechanical failure—an accident.

Yes, the inspector goes on to say ‘they cannot exclude the possibility of unlawful interference by a third party,’ but that’s because evidence is lacking either way.

The press have misinterpreted the reporting that the first turn was manually flown, and jumped to a conclusion it was a nefarious act—-WRONG.
