A nephew of a Filipina informed the police of the wreckage of a Malaysian plane lying in a forest in the southern Philippines.
KUALA LUMPUR: Sabah Commissioner of Police Jalaluddin Abdul Rahman said in a statement late on Saturday night that the Special Branch would call in a man who lodged a police report on the discovery of a crashed plane in a forest off Pulau Sugbay, South Ubian Tawi-Tawi, southern Philippines.
Jalaluddin was referring to a police report lodged by one Jamil Omar, 46, in Sandakan on Friday and going viral in whatsApp. “The information has yet to be verified.”
“The Suluk man informed police that the wreckage could be that of a plane that disappeared last year.”
Jamil, an audio visual assistant with a blue IC and police identity card, claimed in the report that his Bajau aunt, Siti Kayam, had informed him on October 8 that a nephew and his friends had in early September stumbled across the wreckage of a Malaysian plane with skeletal remains in the forest and recovered a 70 inches long x 35 wide Malaysian flag. They were then hunting birds in the forest.
Jamil claimed in his report that the nephew and friends entered the wreckage of the plane and found many human skeletons and bones. “There was a skeleton still in the pilot’s seat. The pilot had his safety belt on and the communication gear attached to his head and ears.”
“They were not able to communicate the information earlier since there are no facilities on the island. So, my aunt came to see me.”
