He said Malaysia was working with other MH17 joint investigation team (JIT) members to create an international court on this, Censor.NET reports citing The Star.
"Malaysia together with our JIT partners: the Netherlands, Belgium, Ukraine and Australia are working towards adopting a treaty to establish an independent international court in order to have an effective prosecution mechanism for those responsible," he said in a statement.
On Tuesday evening, the Dutch Safety Board released a report confirming that MH17 was shot down by a Russian-made Buk missile system over eastern Ukraine on Jul 17, 2014.
Liow said even though an attempt to get an international tribunal via the United Nations was vetoed, Malaysia's fight over MH17 was "far from over".
In July, Russia vetoed a United Nations resolution for an international criminal tribunal for MH17, much to Malaysia's dismay.
Even so, the Government here said it was looking at other options and prosecuting mechanisms to ensure justice.
Liow said Malaysia was "single-minded" in prosecuting those responsible for the crash that killed 298 people then, calling them "trigger-happy criminals".
Thanking the Dutch Safety Board for its investigation, he said it allowed Malaysia to move forward on more solid ground.
