  • Description

    INDONESIAN FORCES HAVE STARTED PULLING OUT OF MALAYSIAN BORNEO, HEAD OF THE THAI VERIFICATION MISSION, LIEUTENANT-GENERAL SURAKIT MAIYALARB, SAID BEFORE LEAVING BANGKOK FOR BORNEO, ON JUNE 18.

    LIEUTENANT-GENERAL SURAKIT MAIYALARB, ACCOMPANIED BY THREE MILITARY OFFICERS AND ONE CIVILIAN WILL INSPECT THE WORK OF THE THAI VERIFICATION MISSION ON BOTH SIDES OF THE INDONESIA-MALAYSIA BORDER.

    ADVANCE PARTIES OF THE THAI VERIFICATION MISSION COMPOSED OF RADIO TECHNICIANS HAVE ALREADY ESTABLISHED A THREE-WAY COMMUNICATION SYSTEM BETWEEN BANGKOK, KUCHING AND PONTIANAK (INDONESIAN BORNEO).

    MEANWHILE, A THREE-MAN THAI TEAM, ACCOMPANIED BY TWO MALAYSIAN OBSERVERS, ARE IN THE BORDER VILLAGE OF TEBEDU TO SET UP THE FIRST CHECKPOINT FOR VERIFYING THE WITHDRAWAL OF INDONESIAN INSURGENTS.

    TEBEDU, 50 MILES SOUTH OF KUCHING, THE SARAWAK CAPITAL, WAS THE SCENE OF THE FIRST INDONESIAN INCURSION ON GOOD FRIDAY LAST YEAR WHEN GREEN-CLAD MARAUDERS HELD A POLICE STATION FOR A NIGHT BEFORE WITHDRAWING DOWN A THREE-MILE TRACK TO THE INDONESIAN BORDER.
