Rohani was present at the ceremony to honour nine other victims of the tragedy at Bunga Raya Complex, KL International Airport in Sepang, Tuesday.

Tambi, a Shell employee had been working in Khazakhstan for the last three years and was on reassignment to the company’s headquarters in Kuala Lumpur.

His wife Ariza Ghazalee and their four children were with him on the journey back to Malaysia when the national aircraft crashed in eastern Ukraine, Donetsk on July 17.
