WANG KELIAN RCI | The delay in the police's handling of the mass graves in Wang Kelian was due to orders from then inspector-general of police Khalid Abu Bakar, the Wang Kelian Royal Commission of Inquiry heard today.

The inquiry's 16th witness, former Perlis police chief Zul Aznam Haron, said he immediately called Khalid upon hearing of the discovery of the graves, but the latter asked him to "hold on."
