KUALA LUMPUR: The royal commission of inquiry (RCI) on the issue of human trafficking and graves in Wang Kelian, Perlis, three years ago is expected to take six months to complete investigations.

Home Minister Muhyiddin Yassin said all the members of the RCI had received the consent of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

‘’I will meet all the appointed members next week and brief them on how to begin their tasks.

‘’The investigation will take six months and a complete report will be sent to my ministry for further action,’’ he told reporters after launching a blood donation programme organised by the Tan Sri Muhyiddin Charity Golf Foundation with the co-operation of the National Blood Centre here today.

In May 2015, 139 graves and 28 abandoned human trafficking camps were found on top of Bukit Wang Burma in Wang Kelian, which is located on the Malaysia-Thailand border.
