Two men on a flight from Bangkok to Penang were detained upon arrival at 10.30 last night. They were taken to the Bayan Baru Police Station and searched before being released after 3.00am.
No ashes from the cremated remains of Chin Peng were found on them. But one of the men said that police confiscated some of the mementos from the funeral.
He noted that the national media were out in full force to cover the news.
The two men were released unconditionally but it is not clear if they will face any charges.
