d2bb4ad72cb72e7b0d9342536d0462b5Luigi Maraldi, the Italian man who was named as one of the 239 people on board the missing flight, has spoken of the bizarre circumstances in which he lost his passport last year while on holiday in Phuket. A man on the flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing is missing, presumed dead, after apparently using the 37-year-old Italian tourist’s passport. A second man on the flight used the same name as 30-year-old Austrian Christian Kozel, who lost his passport in Phuket in 2012. Interpol said last night that no country had checked its database about the two stolen passports before the flight. Maraldi returned to Phuket on holiday again this year and Phuket police traced him to an apartment in Patong.
