PETALING JAYA: Documents stolen by monkeys at a military camp are not confidential, as was previously reported.

"The incident did not involve any confidential military documents. The letters were in fact general letters registered with Pos Malaysia," the Armed Forces said in a statement Tuesday.

"The Malaysian Armed Forces in general, and the army in particular, have a controlled delivery system to secure the safety of documents according to their respective classifications," it said.

It was earlier reported that confidential military documents were stolen in a “robbery” by a troop of monkeys in Malacca's Terendak Camp.

The marauding “thieves” waylaid a postman who was on his routine rounds at the camp and grabbed the documents from him. In a matter of seconds, the animals were on top of trees and a building roof, leaving the 33-year-old postman injured.

The brazen attack happened two days ago.
