Malaysian police get permission to exhume remains via Thai territory

Malaysian police have received permission from the Thai authorities to use a route in Thailand to begin exhuming bodies from graves at a transit camp in the Mata Ayer Forest Reserve, Lubuk Sireh.

Perlis police chief, Senior Asst Commissioner Shafie Ismail said as many as 91 graves had been identified in that area.

“The transit camp is quite far from the camp at Wang Kelian (where several bodies were exhumed). Operations at Wang Kelian have ended and the police and forensic teams will rest before starting operations on Wednesday,” he said when contacted by Bernama today.

Yesterday, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, Datuk Seri Dr Shahidan Kassim disclosed the new transit camp located about 100 metres from the Thai border.

The camp is guarded by General Operations Force personnel.
