MASS GRAVES, REFUGEE TENTS FOUND IN PADANG BESAR MALAYSIA


Malaysian Home Ministry today confirmed the discovery of mass graves near 17 tents believed to have been used to accommodate refugees in Padang Besar, Perlis near Malaysian-Thailand border.
Home Minister Datuk Seri Dr Zahid Hamidi said the General Operations Force (GOF) and the VAT 69 Commando unit had found 14 large tents and three other smaller tents located on the Malaysia-Thailand border.
Shocked by the discovery, he said the tents were believed to have been operational for at least five years and they were believed to have been abandoned when the authorities came to the location.
The graves were identified as those for the refugees in the human trafficking trade. “Probably, one grave has maybe three, four bodies or maybe only one. So we are counting at the moment.
“The PGA and VAT 69 are still investigating it and searching the areas. With the cooperation of Thailand, we will find more and more (bodies),” Zahid told reporters.
