KUALA LUMPUR: The investigation papers involving the 12 men detained for alleged links to the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) have been completed and forwarded to the Attorney General's Chambers (AGC), says Deputy Comm Datuk Ayob Khan (pic).

The Bukit Aman Special Branch Counter Terrorism Division (E8) head said that the police have wrapped up their investigations of the detainees and are satisfied with the probe so far.

"The investigation papers were forwarded to the AGC on Wednesday (Oct 23)," he told reporters gathered at the Kuala Lumpur police headquarters, adding that the E8 is arranging special visits for close family members of detainees in conjunction with the Deepavali celebrations on Sunday (Oct 27).

"We are now waiting for further instructions from the AGC," DCP Ayob said.

On visits by the detainees' family members, DCP Ayob said it was the family's right to visit them.

"It has been our SOP to arrange such visits during religious celebrations. It has been since the time the Internal Security Act was still used. The visits are scheduled for two-hour slots from 9am to 5pm," he said.

Family members are also allowed to bring food for the detainees, he added.

"Some detainees experienced gastric issues and stomach aches. It is normal as some might have be used to the food provided in detention," DCP Ayob said.

He added that medical services are also provided for detainees if they fall ill.

"They are given sufficient treatment if needed. So far their health is good. There are no major health problems," he said.
