Malaysian Airlines MH 370 - Timing of Report by Flight’s Pilot Focuses Inquiry

The search for MH 370 continues.

From the New York Times - Timing of Report by Pilot Focuses Inquiry

SEPANG, Malaysia — A signaling system was disabled on the missing Malaysia Airlines jet before a pilot spoke to air traffic control without mentioning any trouble, a senior Malaysian official said Sunday, reinforcing theories that one or both of the pilots may have been involved in diverting the plane and adding urgency to the investigation of their pasts and possible motivations.

I am assuming that the only way to disable this system is from the cockpit. Is there any other way?

Evidence does point to foul play by the cockpit crew. Malaysian Police have raided his home. Hopefully they find more clues, soon.

Pilot - Supporter of Anwar
Britain's Daily Mail on Sunday, citing police sources, reported that Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah, 53, was an "obsessive" supporter of Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim, who was sentenced to five years in prison on a charge of sodomy just hours before the Malaysia Airlines plane took off. The Mail reported that Malaysian authorities fear that Zaharie, who was at Ibrahim's trial, may have been upset enough by Ibrahim's imprisonment to hijack his own aircraft as a form of political protest.
