The Netherlands' Prosecutor General's Office has denied reports that the results of the criminal inquiry aimed at exposing those responsible for the crash of the Malaysian Boeing in eastern Ukraine will be published in February 2016.

"This information is incorrect," Dutch public prosecution office spokesman Wim de Bruin told Interfax when asked about these reports.

"The metallic parts found in the bodies remain a subject of the inquiry," de Bruin said when asked to comment on earlier media reports stating that some metallic elements found in the bodies of the victims of the crash could be parts of a missile launched from a 'Buk' air defense missile system.

"It is still too early for any final conclusion," he added.
