“Last words from missing Malaysian jet spoken by co-pilot” (http://www.ndtv.com/article/world/last-words-from-missing-malaysian-jet-spoken-by-co-pilot-496646)
The last message from the cockpit – “All right, good night” – came around the time that two of the plane’s crucial signalling systems were manually disabled.
“Initial investigations indicate it was the co-pilot who basically spoke,” Malaysia Airlines CEO Ahmad Jauhari Yahya told reporters.
“Associates say [Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah] Zaharie was an active supporter of Malaysia’s political opposition headed by veteran politician Anwar Ibrahim.
In a highly controversial case, Anwar was convicted of sodomy – illegal in Muslim Malaysia – just hours before MH370 took off.
But friends said Zaharie exhibited no extreme views.
[Co-pilot Fariq Abdul Hamid] Fariq, meanwhile, was accused in an Australian television report of allowing two young South African women into the cockpit of a plane he piloted in 2011, breaching security rules imposed after the 9/11 attacks in the United States.

“Malaysia retains its colonial era criminal ban on sodomy (as well as oral sex), broadly defined to include both heterosexual and homosexual acts, with possible punishment including fines, prison sentences of up to twenty years, and even corporal punishment.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGBT_rights_in_Malaysia#Criminal_code
