    German and Swiss authorities have carried out raids seizing documents after learning a German private detective had investigated the MH17 air disaster, Dutch officials and media said Tuesday.

    Among the objects seized during last week’s raids were “apparently explosive papers” which Dutch investigators hope may narrow down the search for those behind the 2014 tragedy, said the daily De Telegraaf.

    “It’s possible that the suspected culprits behind the firing on MH17 may have been in contact with the detective’s office," de Telegraaf said, citing what it said was the Netherlands’ request to Swiss authorities for help.

    “We are hoping to get some information about this. That’s why the raids at his home were carried out,” the spokesman for the prosecution service, Wim De Bruin, told AFP.

    After the private eye’s home in Bad Schwartau in northern Germany was searched, a safe deposit box in a bank in Zurich, Switzerland, was also emptied and its contents seized.

    “We don’t actually know what was in the box. The Swiss judge must now decide if its contents can be handed over to Dutch officials,” de Bruin added.
