WANG KELIAN RCI | The Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) into the discovery of temporary transit camps and mass graves at Wang Kelian, Perlis, was told today that a bank account number written in a notebook found at the camp belonged to a Malaysian.
Perlis Special Branch staff officer (security protection) Wan Ahmad Hamirudeen Wan Ahmad, who is the 19th witness, said the notebook also contained names and telephone numbers.
Since the information was confidential, he requested to disclose the information in private.
RCI chairperson Ariffin Zakaria allowed the request by Wan Ahmad and ordered members of the public and the media practitioners to leave the Home Ministry’s Dewan Gemilang, where the proceedings were held.
Prior to that, Wan Ahmad said that on Jan 23, 2015, he and members from the Criminal Investigation Department, as well as the General Operations Force, carried out a survey of the border areas in Bukit Wang Burma.
Wan Ahmad, who was the coordinator of the operation which led to the discovery of the transit camps and mass graves, said during the survey, the team found five more transit camps.
Two of them looked like they were going to be used again, while the other three looked worn-out and there were burn marks, he added.
He said he conveyed the information to Bukit Aman for further action.
The proceedings continue on May 7.
