Bank account number listed in jungle camp notebook traced to Malaysian, RCI told

The RCI was set up by the home ministry to look into the discovery of mass graves and human trafficking camps at Wang Kelian in 2015.

PUTRAJAYA: The royal commission of inquiry (RCI) into the mass graves and human trafficking camps heard that a bank account number written in one of the notebooks found during a raid on a jungle camp in January 2015 was traced to a Malaysian individual.

ASP Wan Ahmad Hamirudeen Wan Ahmad, who was the coordinating officer at the E6 division at the Perlis state police headquarters, said he received the notebook found on Wang Burma hill from Insp Jamaluddin Shah.

Jamaluddin was the seventh witness at the RCI. He had testified to having received evidence exhibits from ASP Azizie Mohd. He had previously told the RCI that he made a report at the Special Branch and passed the exhibits to Wan Ahmad for the E6 division to analyse.

The items were a notebook with Siamese writing, a handphone, SIM cards, DVDs and CDs.

“The result of the analysis showed a list of names, telephone numbers and bank accounts,” Wan Ahmad told the inquiry.

He said they managed to trace one of the bank accounts to a Malaysian bank under the name of a local.

As the name is categorised as “classified information”, reporters were told to leave the hall of the RCI.

The RCI was set up by the home ministry to look into the discovery of mass graves and human trafficking camps at Wang Kelian in 2015.

Former chief justice Arifin Zakaria leads the inquiry panel. Other panel members are former inspector-general of police Norian Mai, Noorbahri Baharuddin, Razali Ismail, Junaidah Abd Rahman, Nazirah Hussain and Tan Seng Giaw. Yusran Shah Yusof is the secretary of the RCI.
