What is the difference between the Dutch Safety Board investigation and the JIT investigation?

Both the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) and the Dutch Safety Board (OVV) have investigated the cause of the disaster.

The OVV wanted to establish safety lessons to be learned for the future. The OVV also looked at the decision-making process regarding the determination of the flight routes on 17 July 2014. The OVV investigation has been completed by now.

The JIT is responsible for the criminal investigation in order to be able to identify and prosecute the perpetrators. The criminal investigation of the JIT is still ongoing.
