PUTRAJAYA (Bernama): The Royal Commission of Inquiry into the discovery of temporary transit camps and mass graves at Wang Kelian, Perlis, was told that a bank account number written in a note book found at the camp belonged to a Malaysian.

Perlis Special Branch staff officer (security protection) ASP Wan Ahmad Hamirudeen Wan Ahmad, who is the 19th witness on Thursday (April 25), said the note book also contained names and telephone numbers.

Since the information was confidential, he requested to disclose it in private.

RCI chairman Tun Ariffin Zakaria allowed the request by ASP Wan Ahmad Hamirudeen and ordered members of the public and the media practitioners to leave the Home Ministry's Dewan Gemilang, where the proceedings are being held.

Prior to that, ASP Wan Ahmad Hamirudeen said that on Jan 23, 2015, he and members of the Criminal Investigation Department, as well as the General Operations Force, carried out a survey of the border areas in Bukit Wang Burma.

ASP Wan Ahmad Hamirudeen, 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. - Bernama
