Is DAP really fighting for justice; i.e. in Teoh’s case?

The pandemonium created by the DAP since the sudden demise of Political Secretary Teoh Beng Huat two weeks reached unsurpassed level for someone who was a volunteer witness in a corruption, abuse of power and probably linkages to the Lords of the Underworld Vices. Tomorrow, part of the planned illegal rally is about DAP politicizing the sudden death, even though the inquest has started.

The fact is that, are these highly charged emotions that resulted from over spinning of facts and twisting of expectations and rumours is about seeking justice for Teoh Beng Hock or is there an ulterior motive? At this point, so many level headed Malaysians believed that the DAP Leaders would be nailed when Teoh’s ‘suuden death’ is out in the open. That is why some of them are so unco-operative with the investigations, despite matching DNA found.

If justice is sought, then the effort for an already dead witness does not commerate the same for seeking justice for agrieved persons who are still alive. Case in point is that for Fourth Prime Miniser Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad. He is a an internationally acclaimed and respected Statesmen. The case had been ongoing since three years ago. And yet DAP never once raised about asking for a Royal Commission to really find out who and why he was attacked by obnoxious gas at Sultan Ismail Petra Airport, Kota Bahru.

Then there is this complaint of Saiful Bukhary Azlan about one-time-acused-for-sodomy Anwar “Mat King Leather” Ibrahim. He has came out in the open, even swearing in the name of Allah s.w.t. by the Holy Quran in a mosque infront of an Imam to demosntrate his grievances of being sodomised by partyless Opposition Leader Anwar “Drama King” Ibrahim. Of course, Anwar was at his usual theaterics and antics. And yet DAP kept completely silent about this.

Both cases are about Malaysians, in Malaysia. In both example, DAP’s failure to hold the principle of seeking justice  is about two things:

1. Politicizing

2. Chauvinism

And yet DAP’s tagline is “Malaysian, Malaysia”. So, what are all these cock-a-mamie talk about seeking justice for Teoh Beng Huat?

*Updated 300pm

More on the DAP inability to serve in the interest of seeking justice. As the inquest already started, DAP MP for Puchong Gobind Singh Deo (son of DAP Chairman Karpal Singh) is acting as the lawyer watching in brief for the Teoh family. It was said this morning that Gobind was ‘passionately defending’ on behalf of  Tan and Lee for not complying in the investigations, “One was outstation and one was not well”.

The “Thirteen Million Ringgit” question is that:

1. Why is the lawyer watching in brief for the family in the inquest making excuses for the non compliance of their party members who are implicated in the investigations?

2. Is Gobind seeking justice for Teoh or the witnesses?

It is slowly unravelling that the DAP is covering something or someone for the outcome of Teoh’s death. The plot thickens…..

Pakatan Rakyat Primates upto mobstreet politics anarchy again

The Pakatan Rakyat Primates are planning to take their brand of politics into the street again. These pseudo anarchists, worthy to be called as ‘Pakatan Samseng (Gangster)’ plan to take on the street 100,000 people to march against the Federal Constitution and for the abolition of the Internal Security Act (ISA).

Bernama.com has the story:

GMI Hands Over Memo On I.S.A. To Palace

KUALA LUMPUR, July 23 (Bernama) — The Movement for the Abolition of the ISA (GMI) on Thursday submitted to the Istana Negara a memorandum calling for the abolition of the Internal Security Act (ISA).

GMI chairman Syed Ibrahim Syed Noh handed over the memorandum to Istana Negara public relations officer Mohd Khairi Abdul Rahman at the security post at the main entrance of the palace.

Syed Ibrahim told reporters later that the GMI had also requested for an audience with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin, on Aug 1 to hand over a “people’s declaration” condemning the ISA.

“On that day, we expect about 100,000 people, comprising also representatives of non-governmental organisations and political parties, to walk in a procession to the Istana Negara from the Sogo shopping complex and Masjid Jamek to deliver the declaration,” he said.

He also said that GMI would apply for a police permit for the gathering and procession.

The leader of the gangster pack is none other than partyless Opposition Leader Anwar “Drama King” Ibrahim. As the prime promoter of anarchy reinstituted since his dismissal from as the Deputy Prime Minister on 2 September 1998 and as an UMNO member 3 September 1998, he has took his politics to the street and infuriating the common rakyat with his oratory skills. As a student leader, he was detained under the ISA in 1974 for an unstantiated claim that a person died of starvation due to poverty in Baling. Till present, no one could actually prove the claim.

The planned anarchy rally is a consequence of the failled rally for Political Secretary Teoh Beng Hock two Sundays ago. Anwar was the mastermind of the rally against HRH Sultan of Perak earlier this year and fully in support fot the HINDRAF and “Yellow shirt march” in November 2007.

It shows that one-time-sodomy-acused Anwar is capitalising issues such as Teoh’s sudden death (which fellow Pakatan Rakyat’s Primates conveniently blame the MACC for the demise) , attempt to bring back ‘Butcher of Malaya’ as a typical stunt to appease the Non Malay support that is against the establishment and  Perak Government change-over for the mobstreet politics this time around as a diversion against the real issues such as his second time sodomy trial and the seven Pakatan Gangster colleagues who were under MACC investigation for misappropriation and abuse of power of the Selangor State Funds. The investigations went into a comlicated twist when two PKR elected representatives acused the Selangor DAP Leadership, who are also State Governmen Excos for linkages with the Lords of the Underworld Vices.

The anarchy is very apparent. These Pakatan Gangster cyber-anarchist went upto blatantly lying of the goodname  of HM Seri Paduka Baginda Yang DiPertuan Agong XIII Tuanku Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin Ibni Almarhum Sultan Mahmood to create a confusion to justify that the Palace supported the 10 November 2007 illegal rally.

What is important that the rakyat stays focus on the real issues such as the MACC investigations of the Selangor DAP Leaders, sodomy trial of Anwar “Drama King” Ibrahim and most of all, Anwar’s failure to deliver the Federal Government into the hands of the Pakatan Rakyat Primates by 16 September 2008, a claim which is almost a year old.

It has been three years now….

It has been three years now….

Three years ago today, Fourth Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad was attacked by obnoxious substance, believed to be gas as he stepped out of the protocol door of the Sultan Ismail Petra Airport, Kota Bahru, Kelantan and sat in a Mitsubishi Pajero. He was about to stick his head out of the SUV’s sunroof to impromptu address a welcoming crowd of at least 1,000 eager well wishers. Many are UMNO members and supporters. As the result of the attack,  he suffered breathing difficulty. So were almost 20 others who were in close proximity to the SUV.

He was yanked out of the ‘trapped’ SUV and driven away to recuperate at the Kota Bahru Rennaisance Hotel. In the time being, former UMNO Pasir Mas Division Head Dato’ Ibrahim Ali made a Police report at the Kota Bahru Police IPD.

The Kelantan Police CID was scrambled to investigate on the case. Later, some men were picked up for investigations. Former Kuala Krai UMNO leader Dato’ Nik Sapiea Nik Yusoff was later charged under Penal Code Sect 324 for intentionally causing the hurt to Tun Dr. Mahathir and three others. If convicted, Nik Sapeia could be jailed up to a maximum three years, fine and/or whipping.

The trial is on going. The last witness of the 40 called to testify for the prosecution gave his tesimony in Kelantan criminal court on 1 June 2008 and the accused was called to defend himself.

A lot of people want to see the case concluded. If the acused can be proven, then he should be punished. If there is ‘reasonable doubt’ to exonerate him, then he should allowed to walk as a free man. Regardless, the case needs a closure. As they say, “Justice delayed is justice denied”.

MACC investigators threatened by the Underworld

Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC) investigating the underworld and DAP Leaders connected to the Lords of the Underworld Vices the moment the highly charged news of Political Secretary Teoh Beng Hock ‘sudden death’ hit the mainstream news a little over then days ago.

The shocking demise of an aide to Selangor DAP Exco Ean Yong who was implicated to misappropriation and abuse of power pertaining to state funds send ripples both through the spines of DAP leaders, members and supporters and persons linked directly or indirectly to the Lords of the Underworld Vices.

Last Wednesday, Cabinet agreed that an inquest to be set to determine the cause of death of Teoh and a Royal Commission be instituted to look into the operations and procedures of the MACC. It was claimed that Teoh was called to be interviewed at the Selangor MACC office in Plaza Masalam at 600pm a day early and it ended at 345am the next day. The truth is that Teoh voluteered information to the MACC after the involvement of Selangor DAP Leaders were insinuated by PKR elected representatives Azmin Ali and Wee Choo Keong a week earlier.

DAP Leaders was quick to react to these much talked about ‘linkages’, as if they are ‘creating a diversion to cover their tracks’. Within hours DAP Secretary General Lim Guan Eng insisted that the MACC own up the responsbility to Teoh’s demise.  Ronnie Liu was first to erupt, which later proven to be clear on the reason why he with tantrums and theaterics was adamant to seek Teoh’s mobile phone and notebook PC. Even the last to see him alive Pakatan Rakyat appointed Kajang Municipal Councillor Tan Boon Wah even refused to co-operate in the investigations taken over by the Police.

It was said since Wednesday, the lead investigator of the case in which DAP Leaders linked to the Lords of the Underworld Vices was not suspended but reassigned and transfered out of the case.

The Star has the story:

Thursday July 23, 2009

MACC lead investigator reassigned

PUTRAJAYA: The lead investigator from the Selangor Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission team looking into the alleged misuse of constituency funds by state exco members has been reassigned.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak also denied that the entire team had been suspended as reported earlier by an online news portal.

“They have not been suspended but the lead investigator has been reassigned to the (MACC) headquarters.

******************

What has not been reported yet is that man was said to be threatened by the Lords of the Underworld Vices. His investigations seems to be uncovering a lot of evidence that could incriminate, if not trigger the fall of the Pakatan Rakyat filmsy and brittle Selangor State Government, which already showing the apparent signs of infighting and cracking up. Instead, at this point to divert is where the Pakatan Rakyat Primates actively campaigning and fully capitalizing to demonize the enforcement authorities, especially the MACC and Police. Hence, the plot thickens.

This warrants more reason that the investigations are to be intensified, to find the truth and for the betterment of the majority of Malaysians. This could be the political scandal that could bring the credibility and integrity of the Lee Kuan Yew-PAP’s spinoff chauvinist party  down to a near destruction level. The fact is that the DAP Leaders not only involved with the Lords of the Underworld Vices but protecting them is damning and very worrying.

In the time being, NSTP newly appointed GEIC Zainul Ariffin has the exact views on these ‘disobedient and ungrateful persons’ sordid attempt to destabilize the nation by politicizing with the racial overtones of the ‘sudden death’ of Teoh Beng Hock.

Death threats against MACC’s lead investigator

By SIRA HABIBU

PETALING JAYA: The lead investigator probing alleged abuse of constituency funds by Selangor assemblymen has been reassigned after receiving threats.

Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission head Datuk Seri Ahmad Said Hamdan said:

“As there was a threat on his life, we took him off the case and reassigned him elsewhere. We are doing this for his own security.”

Ahmad also confirmed that the commission had received several threats, demanding that it stop investigations into the case.

He vowed that the commission would continue with the probe despite threats and controversy arising from the death of Teoh Beng Hock.

“We treat such threats as part of the job hazard. It is a big risk that we have to take in fulfilling our duties,” he said yesterday.

Ahmad said it was good that the Government had ordered an inquest and set up a Royal Commission of Inquiry to uncover the truth behind Teoh’s death.

Teoh, a political secretary to Selangor state executive councillor Ean Yong Hian Wah, was found dead on the fifth floor of Plaza Masalam in Shah Alam on July 16, hours after giving a statement at the commission’s office on the 14th floor on alleged corruption.

Teoh was said to be one of the key witnesses in the investigation against several Selangor assemblymen.

Ahmad also admonished those who took issue with the commission’s interview method that sometimes dragged until the early hours of the morning.

“It is not by choice that we choose to stay on until the wee hours of the morning to record statements from witnesses and suspects.

“But in certain cases we need to act fast to check attempts to wipe out evidence and tracks,” he said, adding that some suspects were cooperative while some could be hostile.

********************

Watch out for the Malay Mail this afternoon. It should be interesting to see how persons mentioned in the list published by Truth-for-Teoh-Beng-Huat explosive  blog made mistakes when making police reports, either deliberately or negligently so that the DAP could complicate the matter worse and stir more controversies.

The truth for Teoh

The a good part of the country is curious about Political Secretary Teoh Beng Hock’s ‘sudden death’. Some say he commited suicide. Considering that he was to get married the next day, he must be really depressed or stressed to want to jump off the 14th floor. Some said he uncovered DAP’s linkages with the Lords of the Underworld Vices.

So far, so many theories surfaced. Until the inquest and Royal Commission of Inquiry is fully completed, then these theories and curiosity will lurk in the minds of a good part of Malaysians.

Regardless, there is a blog which uncovered DAP’s linkages to the Lords of the Underworld Vices and specifically named Selangor State Exco Ronnie Liu in these affairs.

Again, as Dean Cain put at the end of his show, “Unbelievable? Believe it or not!”.

*Updated 1130pm

The inquest to determine the cause of Teoh’s ‘sudden death’, as provided by law will be held at the Shah Alam Magistrate Court beginning Wednesday.

Teoh’s death inquest on July 29

It will be held at Shah Alam magistrates court

PETALING JAYA: The inquest into the death of Teoh Beng Hock will be held from July 29 till Aug 12.

Selangor police chief Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar said that he was informed of the date by the Shah Alam magistrate’s court Friday.

The police would close the investigation into Teoh’s death before the inquest began, he told Bernama.

Meanwhile, Attorney-general Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail said an inquiry by the magistrate under the Criminal Procedure Code (CPC) was the right recourse, as the CPC was a specific legislation that made provision for a death inquiry.

He said he had acted under Section 339(1) of the CPC to direct the magistrate to hold an inquiry into the cause of and the circumstances connected with the death of Teoh Beng Hock and the magistrate is duty-bound to hold an inquiry.

He said a magistrate’s inquiry was more appropriate than a Royal Commission of Inquiry.

“It is only proper that a court of law determines the cause of death and matters related thereto,” he said in a statement.

He added that under Section 333 of the CPC, a magistrate can hold an inquiry into the cause of death and holding a similar inquiry by the Royal Commission would be duplicitous in such instance.

“In the case of Teoh Beng Hock, it is undoubtedly clear that the adequate recourse and appropriate venue are provided by the law for cases of this nature,” he said.

Gani said the formation of the Royal Commission was rightful and lawful for the purpose of inquiring into the procedural aspects of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission in carrying out investigations.

Citing Section 2 of the Commissions of Enquiry Act 1950, he said it made clear reference to the inquiry into the conduct and management of government officers and departments or for the public welfare.

“Therefore, it cannot be overstretched to cover an inquiry into the death of this nature, wherein an inquiry by the magistrate under the CPC is more appropriate and sanctioned by the law,” he said.

Meanwhile, a cut on Teoh Beng Hock’s wrist provides another twist to the investigation into his death.

The injuries were found on Teoh’s right wrist, and Teoh is said to be right-handed.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan confirmed there was a laceration on Teoh’s wrist.

“But we have not drawn any conclusion. We are still awaiting the pathology report before wrapping up the case,’’ he said.

Two pathologists from University Malaya Medical Centre and Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital in Klang revisited the site of incident to establish certain facts.

Musa said investigations should be completed soon as the inquest was set to commence next week.

The investigators are trying to establish whether the cut was self-inflicted, or if Teoh was coerced into cutting his wrist, or if the injuries were sustained during the fall.

Why do we even bother….?

Why do we even bother setting up an inquest to determine the cause of ‘sudden death’ of DAP State Exco Ean Yong’s Political Secretary Teoh Beng Hock and a Royal Commission of Inquiry to look into whether or not MACC followed their SOP and jurisdiction in their investigations?

Despite that an inquest is the legally binding usual way to determine ‘sudden death’ and all testimonies presented is as good as a criminal case trial, the Pakatan Rakyat Primates are at their usual theaterical antics.

Malaysiakini.com has the story:

Pakatan: Royal commission is a mockery
Hafiz Yatim
Jul 23, 09
12:57pm
 
Pakatan Rakyat today said that there were many questions that needed urgent answers to the circumstances leading to the death of political aide Teoh Beng Hock while being questioned by the Malaysia Anti-Corruption Commission last week.

As such, the opposition coalition said, the government was wrong in limiting the terms of reference of the royal commission of inquiry to look only into the MACC’s investigative procedures.

The royal commission, as announced by Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak yesterday, will also be tasked to determine if there were any human right violations when Teoh was being interrogated.

Pakatan Rakyat leader however believed that the royal commission must also look into the cause of Teoh’s death.

 

               

Najib announced yesterday that the cause of the death will be determined by an inquest.

“This makes a mockery of the public outcry for justice, truth and accountability,” said Pakatan leader in a joint statement today.

The statement was signed by PKR vice-president R Sivarasa, PAS council member Dzulkefly Ahmad and Selangor DAP secretary Lau Weng San.

 

Also present was PAS treasurer and Kuala Krai MP Dr Hatta Ramli.

They said that some of the questions that needed to be answered were:

  • why was Teoh’s case allegedly involving an amount less than RM2,500 is pursued with such aggression and urgency?
  • why was Teoh and another so-called “witness” kept overnight and interrogated with such oppression?
  • why was Teoh’s hand phone in the custody of the MACC when the MACC insisted that he was only a witness; why did the MACC initially deny they took his handphone?
  • why would Teoh spend the night at the MACC’s office if he was free to go especially since he was scheduled to be married the next morning;
  • why would Teoh commit suicide (as alleged by MACC and others) in these circumstances, when he is about to get married, with his fiancé expecting their child, and with no sign or history of depression or mental illness.

“Hence, whilst it is appropriate that the royal commission investigate the procedures of investigation of the MACC, the key question of how Teoh died must also be investigated and answered by them.

“That question cannot be separated from the more general issue of how the MACC conducts investigations,” said the Pakatan leaders in their statement.

Ridiculous questions from police

Sivarasa also said that having an inquest, which is presided by a magistrate would not achieve the true objective of finding Teoh’s cause of death.

 

               

“In an inquest, police will give the evidence that it has gathered and the DPP assisting the coroner in the inquest would direct questions. There are limited roles played by other parties and this results in numerous inquests ending up without determining the cause of death,” Sivarasa (left) said.

“Furthermore, the public has questioned the integrity of the police, judiciary and the prosecution in the past. Hence, we strongly feel that an inquest is insufficient. Expanding the terms of reference of the royal commission to determine the cause of death would be seen to be independent,” he said.

Sivarasa also questioned the relevance of the police line of interrogation to determine the cause of Teoh’s death when they met an aide to Selangor executive councillor Elizabeth Wong.

“They asked questions as to whether Teoh was a smoker, or has he got political enemies, does he owe a lot of money. Such questions posed by the authorities when recording statements would not help determine the cause of death.

“They should be looking at whether there were other finger prints on the windows, or whether there were a third party’s hair or other subtances on from Teoh’s shirt which could be sent for DNA analysis. If this was the line of questioning, I do not think the inquest would achieve its desired objective”

Selective prosecution adopted

Selangor DAP organising secretary Lau Weng San also questioned the selective prosecution adopted by MACC in supposedly taking action on Pakatan Rakyat elected representatives.

“I lodged a report to the MACC a couple of months ago regarding a BN elected representative finishing his allocation of RM500,000 within two months. But no action has been taken on it,” Lau, who is Kampung Tunku assemblyperson said.

A big poser, he said, is how could a witness, not an accused person, die while in MACC’s custody.

These, Lau said are the questions which MACC should answer as it happened on their premises.

“Hence, DAP along with Pakatan partners truly feel that we need a water-tight royal commission to not only answer questions on MACC’s investigative procedures but also determine the cause of death.”

“Having a junior magistrate presiding in an inquest is insufficient as it would not be able to determine the circcumstances surrounding Teoh’s death.”

*********************

Of course the Police would want to know whether Teoh was a gambling man, has debts, especially huges ones (to determine whether he is indebted to the Ah Longs), change of behaviour lately, shown symptoms of depression etc. Having enemies is the obvious reason why anyone would be murdered. The Police would naturally record everysingle probabilities on why Teoh is dead, suddenly.

If they want to talk about ‘selective prosecution’, why none of these Pakatan Rakyat Primates bothered when Wan Siti Farihan was found dead at her UKM residential college. This facility is obviously a Government owned building (unlike Plaza Masalam, a privately owned building). The kiasuness is very prevailing, when it comes who and why the DAP wants to champion. It is and was never about Malaysia or the principle fairness for all!

Obviously, the Pakatan Rakyat Primates would never be satisfied regardless what it is done. Worse still, they stage more theaterics and politicize every single opportunity that they can capitalise for their narrow and chauvinistic politics to belittle, if not demonize the enforcement agencies and authorities. If they can, they would create instability, chaos and a pandemonium state of anarchy. That is where they rise to the occassion to seize power, in the cover of ‘peoples’ democracy’.

It was said that some people within DAP would be happy that the inquest findings would conclude that Teoh committted suicide. Otherwise, if it wasn’t, then there would me more inquiries. More inquiries could probably uncover a lot of things some people within DAP would try very hard to protect: Their involvement with the Lords of the Underworld Vices.

If it was true, then this would be catestrophic to Malaysian politics. The reasons are so obvious:

1. The party would be funded from unaccounted monies

2. Malaysia would be a state ruled by the Lords of Underworld Vices, who would dictate if not threaten the politcians to their whims and fancies

3. Hence, the underworld vices would be a Malaysian way of life where prostitution, unstructured gambling, sale of unprescribed drugs, extortions etc. is rampantly open

4. A new form of slavery, ruled by the Ah Longs will be instituted

The social fabric standing would naturally detetriorate, if not completely destroyed. Malaysia has already been mapped on the global human traficking watch.

It has been said that since Pakatan Rakyat Primates took over the administration of the Selangor State Government, the number of ‘health spas’ and ‘massage parlours’ have increased termendously. This is under the direct inducement by Selangor DAP Leaders.

Again, why do we bother to set up the inquest and Royal Commission of Inquiry? It is obvious that we need it, to protect ourselves from anarchists who use ‘intellectualism and universal values’ as their cover.

Inquest into Teoh’s death, Royal Commission on MACC’s treatment (Updated with Q&A)

By ZULKIFLI ABD RAHMAN and DHARMENDER SINGH

PUTRAJAYA: The Cabinet has agreed to set up an inquest into the death of political aide Teoh Beng Hock as well as a Royal Commission of Inquiry to look into the interrogation methods used on him by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said the Cabinet during its meeting Wednesday also decided that the inquest into Teoh’s cause of death would be headed by a magistrate as dictated by law.

It will be up to the courts to decide which magistrate would be in charge of the inquest, he added.

Najib said the courts had already been notified of the Cabinet decision and he expected the inquest to begin sometime next week.

“The Royal Commission will be set up according to specific terms, which is to scrutinise and study the procedures related to interrogations that are used by the MACC. It will also identify if there were any violations of human rights during Teoh’s interrogation.

“The members of the Commission will be announced later ,” he told a press conference here Wednesday.

He said the investigations by the Royal Commission were necessary to ensure there was no repeat of such incidents and the steps being taken mirrored the Government’s commitment to finding out the cause of death so that Teoh’s family and the public can know what really happened.

Teoh, 30, was found dead on the fifth floor of Plaza Masalam in Shah Alam last Thursday after giving his statement to the Selangor MACC which had been investigating allegations that certain state assemblymen had misused constituency funds.

Teoh, Selangor executive councillor Ean Yong Hian Wah’s political secretary, was not a suspect but had been questioned as a witness.

Najib said that in line with the 1Malaysia concept of “People First, Performance Now,” he had told the Cabinet that government institutions were created to protect the people’s rights and interests, and as such they cannot act against or neglect these interests or act beyond the country’s laws and Constitution.

He said the Cabinet also ordered the Home Ministry and the police to complete the investigations into the Teoh’s death as soon as possible and he was told that it would be ready within the next few days.

He said the report would be made public when it was completed and he would personally meet with Teoh’s family to explain to them the findings.

He also said that Cabinet members were just as anxious to know the cause of death and hoped that all parties would be patient and refrain from making statements that could cause confusion or create the wrong perception on the issue while the investigations were still ongoing.

He also called on all parties not to politicise Teoh’s death.

The following are Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s responses to questions from the media:

Was there any pressure to form the Commission?
Najib: No. It’s because we want to establish the truth and it’s important for us to ensure public faith and confidence in important institutions that we have in this country.

When do you think the police can complete their investigations? What kind of time frame will be set?
I know that the police can wrap up their investigations very soon. I think we are talking about a matter of days. For the magistrate (on the inquest), I don’t want to put a time frame because that is up to the magistrate to decide (on when it should be held). The Royal Commission will be established quite soon.

The investigation by the Royal Commission, will it be into Teoh’s death?
It will be on the procedures (of MACC interrogations). The inquest will look into Teoh’s death,

Who will be the members of the Commission?
We will announce this later.

Have you named the magistrate?
No, that is up to the court to decide. We have taken steps to notify the court of the need to convene an inquest. So I expect the inquest to start some time within next week.

There’s an online news portal (saying) that the MACC has suspended their investigation into the alleged misuse of constituency funds by Selangor exco members.
No, we cannot have any presumption (of guilt). We have to wait for the results of the investigations first.

What will the Commission investigate?
It will be on the (MACC’s) procedures relating to its investigation, not the investigation on Teoh’s death and the normal investigations conducted by the MACC.

Has the MACC investigation team been suspended?
They have not been suspended, but the lead investigator has been reassigned to the (MACC) headquarters. We cannot have a presumption of guilt.

Will the Commission investigate Teoh’s death?
No, the death will be left to the inquest. The inquest on the cause of death is conducted by a magistrate, so we have to follow the law.

************************

This move by the Cabinet is much sought after decision by some of the Malaysian public. The Oppositions, especially the DAP usually would capitalise such opportunity to belittle, if not demonize the enforcement authorities, like the Police and MACC. The inquest would be carried out by a masgistrate and dependant on the Police investigations where else the MACC would be scrutinised for the operational methods. Both would be beneficial to both agencies as credibility and integrity of the Police would be improved if not restored and the MACC would be free from the perception painted by the Oppositions as a ‘murder house’.

The Oppositions, especially the DAP have been politicizing, even on racial tones and the public forum at Georgetown yesterday was at the borderline of breaking the internal security code of inciting and instigation. They plan to take the forum on a roadshow across the nation. However, there are so many ambiguity and mystery to the ‘sudden death’ looming in the heads of the average persons of the street.

The “Thirteen Million Ringgit” questions are:

1.0  How would the DAP fair when the inquest is carried out and the magistrate finds the truth?

So much has been said about Selangor DAP elected representatives and even State Excos being involved with the Lords of the Underworld Vices. These accusations were not made by BN Leaders but came from PKR elected representatives, who are DAP cohorts and ‘strange bedfellow’s partners in the ‘marriage of incovenience’ and an ‘unholy union’.

1.1. One question is our mind here in BigDogDotCom: Why was Selangor State Exco for Local Government Ronnie Liu was so frantic looking for Teoh’s notebook PC and handphone to a point where he broke the door at the Tuanku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital mortuary?

1.2. Amongst the things he specifically reminded the Teoh family was to demand the return of Teoh’s notebook PC and handphone. What information are so important in these devices to Ronnie Liu? Are the information contained in these devices will incriminate him and actually provide evidence of his linkages to the Lords of the Underworld Vices?

2.0. Why is DAP appointed Kajang Municipal Councillor Tan Boon Wah was reluctant and later refused to give his statement to the Police?

2.1. Since at this point it is established that Tan was the last person to see Teoh alive, would that make him a suspect?

2.2. If Teoh’s ‘sudden death’ is neither a suicide nor accident (which is most unlikely probability), is it a murder?

2.3. If it is a murder and Teoh and Tan were together in the early hours of Thursday morning in the MACC office at Plaza Masalam, then why is only Teoh is murdered and Tan is not? Is Tan connected to the murder?

3.0. What is the linkage between MACC original investigations of misappropriation and abuse of state funds to Teoh’s ‘sudden death’?

3.1. Is the misappropriation and/or abuse of state funds has something to do with the Lords of the Underworld Vices?

3.2. If there is, how far reaching is this involvement? Is it within Selangor or include DAP controlled states like Penang and formerly Perak as well?

These are the questions that so many people talk about when they meet up since late Thursday, regardless at work, during meal or snack time, outside work or even social gatherings. Soon, we will all know the truth.

The plot thickens. Its time to cross our fingers and bring the popcorn out. Of course the usual Opposition theaterics, which former abuse-of-power convict Anwar “Drama King” Ibrahim is known for since 2 September 1998 will be thrown to confuse and divert the attention of the real issues at hand, such as:

1. The Police investigations are flawed

2. AG and the Police falsified and tempered with evidence

3. The post mortem report is doctored and flawed

4. The chemical, laboratory and electronic audit reports are flawed and inconclusive

5. Statutory declarations would be thrown like happy hour darters

6. The Judge is bias

7. Material witness is missing

8. The acused has been served with food meant for caged animals, if not systematically poisoned

Then there would these usual theratical stunts the Oppositions mastered like:

1. Delay tactics

2. Trial within a trial “Malay Police and MACC officers are racially biased against DAP Leaders acused for the ‘sudden death’ “

Anything and everything is thrown as an attempt to ‘throw spanner to the works’. When it comes to sought justice when the Oppositions are wronged, it always come back to those.

It is expected to be one hell of a show, with DAP theaterics at its best!

 

P.S. We at BigDogDotCom hope the ongoing investogations against DAP elected representatives for misappropriation of state funds and abuse of power will be continued and heads will roll, even after this inquest and RCI.

Pathologists visit the site as DAP play more theaterics

The pathologists from Universiti Malaya Medical Centre, Petaling Jaya and Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital, Klang spent two hours at Plaza Masalam in their investigations to the highly charged ‘sudden death’ of DAP Political Secretary Teoh Beng Hock, which was found dead on Thursday. Despite the Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan’s statement after briefing the Prime Minister yesterday that 60% of the expected investigations have been completed, the Police are still very active on the case.

On the other hand, the DAP are still on their usual theaterics in politicizing the case.

The Star has the story:

Pathologists revisit Plaza Masalam (Update)

SHAH ALAM: Pathologists have revisited Plaza Masalam where political secretary Teoh Beng Hock was found dead.

The pathologists, Dr Prashant Samberkar from the Universiti Malaya Medical Centre and Dr Khairul Azman from Hospital Tuanku Ampuan Rahimah in Klang, spent about two hours there.

The locations that they went to on Wednesday included the 14th floor where the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) office is located, the fifth floor where Teoh’s body was found and the parking area on the ground floor.

“The visit today was to allow the pathologists to gather more information before they can submit their findings,” DSP Kamarudin Ismail, Shah Alam police headquarters investigating officer told reporters after the visit.

Teoh, 30, was found dead on the fifth floor of Plaza Masalam in Shah Alam last Thursday after giving his statement to the Selangor MACC.

He was Selangor executive councillor Ean Yong Hian Wah’s political secretary.

Meanwhile in Kuala Lumpur, businessman Tan Boon Wah has filed an application against the MACC questioning its interrogation procedures.

The Kajang Municipal councillor and DAP member filed the application through his lawyer Karpal Singh at the Kuala Lumpur High Court registry here on Wednesday morning.

He is seeking a declaration from the court to interpret the phrase “day-to-day” over the questioning of witnesses, especially when it comes to overnight questioning.

Tan himself was quizzed by the MACC in its investigation over the alleged abuse of constituency funds by Selangor elected representatives. He is believed to be the last person to have seen political aide Teoh Beng Hock alive.

Teoh, political secretary to Sri Kembangan assemblyman Ean Yong Hian Wah, was found dead near the MACC office after he had endured a marathon interrogation session lasting from the afternoon of July 15 into the wee hours of the morning of July 16.

Tan later lodged a police report.

**************

The Oppositions, especially the DAP have been known to capitalize every single opportunity to belittle, of not demonize the enforcement agencies, especially the Police and MACC. Their non challant attitude in facilitating in the investigations is appalling. Hence, the progress of the investigations could be impaired because of these explicitly induced ‘hiccups’. And yet, they politicize the case in highly charged and racially insinuated demand of a Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI).

Any commission of inquiry should not be rushed or hastily set up. DAP has a history to do this. Case in point is the highly controversial ‘nude-ear-squat’ episode end of 2005, as being put up in Parliament by DAP Seputeh MP Theresa Kok, claiming the lady is question is a Chinese national. Even DAP Jurassic Leader Lim Kit Siang then was adamant that the lady is a Chinese national. The hasty pressure to set up an independent inquiry resulted in sending then Home Minsiter Dato’ Azmi Khalid to China to apologize.

Later when it was proven that the lady is neither Chinese national nor of Chinese ethnicity but in fact a Malay woman, DAP suddenly stopped pursuing on the issue. Niether did they apologize for misleading the nation to a point that it almost created a diplomatic issue.

On the same note, former abuse-of-power convict Anwar “Drama King” Ibrahim, is on his usual theaterics deploying every single legal avenue to disrupt the criminal proceeding of sodomy against him. This the second time the partlyess Opposition Leader is being accused and charged in court for sodomy. He got an acquittal at the Federal Court for technical reasons.

Lessons should be learnt from the past. The Police should be allowed ample time, space and opportunity to complete the investigations for Teoh Beng Hock’s ‘sudden death’.

Teoh’s sudden death: RCI is simply theaterics

The shocking discovery of Political Secretary Teoh Beng Hock on Thursday afternoon sent ripples through the spine of sensationalised news across the nation. Apparently, Teoh an aide to Selangor DAP man State Exco Ean Yong was in the MACC office since Wednesday evening for ten hours, talking to the officers. It was in a midst of highly controversial investigations of DAP elected representatives in misappropriation of state funds. It was also at a time where two PKR YBs acused the DAP YBs including State Excos of being involved in the Lords of Underworld Vices.

Police classified the discovery of the lifeless body which was discovered at 145pm on the roof top of an adjacent building that housed the MACC as ‘sudden death’. Later was established that Teoh was allowed to leave after the interview at 345am. However, he asked to rest at the MACC sofa. He was last seen alive by Pakatan Rakyat appointed Kajang Municipal Councillor Tan Boon Wah at 600am.

Upon the discovery, there were so much emotions, mostly in anguish and enfuriated. Some is believed to be theaterics. Others are thought to be politically motivated. Heads rolled, especially by the DAP Leaders. WIthin hours of the shocking news, DAP Secretary General Lim Guan Eng was quick to blame the MACC to be responsible for the ‘sudden death’, failing to even establish the real cause of death, let alone who is involved at least to identify the last persons with him alive.

The theaterics of the typical Opposition then followed suit. Former abuse-of-power convict Anwar “Drama King” Ibrahim was quick to organise a demonstration outside Plaza Masalam, the building where Teoh’s body was found. Then a rally was organised on Sunday afternoon. It does not reflect response of the Malaysian public as only 3,000 people turned up (depsite it was a lazy Sunday afternoon and the Police did not even attempt to disallow this rally). The fact that 80% of the attendees were of one ethnic group shows the larger of Malaysian majority could not even be bothered to show their dismay and anguish for the case.

Of course, the SOP theaterics of the Oppositions would call for a Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) to be formed and investigate on the ‘sudden death’.

The Star has the story:

Teoh’s death: DAP rally calls for Royal Commission of Inquiry

By NURBAITI HAMDAN

PETALING JAYA: A special gathering of DAP leaders over the death of Teoh Beng Hock pressed for the setting up of of the Royal Commission of Inquiry.

DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang, who was one of the leaders who spoke at the Kelana Jaya Stadium Sunday, said they were still “sad and angry” over the incident that had shocked the nation.

“How can a person walk into the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) office as a witness and come out a dead man?” he asked.

Lim was one of the Pakatan Rakyat leaders who attended the gathering in Kelana Jaya Stadium Sunday to mark the death of Teoh, a political aide to to Selangor executive councillor Ean Yong Hian Wah.

He also urged MACC chief commissioner Datuk Seri Ahmad Said Hamdan to take responsibility for the death by stepping down from his post.

Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim in his speech questioned the commission’s inaction on allegations of corruption against Barisan Nasional as former state government, headed by Datuk Seri Mohd Khir Toyo.

“Why is it only Pakatan that comes under the scrutiny of the commission? How come the commission never probes into the allegations against Mohd Khir?” he said.

Thousands of Pakatan supporters thronged the stadium, most of them wearing black, with banners and posters of Teoh.

Among the banners read ‘MACC Murderer?’ and ‘Justice For Beng Hock’.

White chrysanthemums, traditionally associated with death in Chinese community, were also distributed among the crowd at the rally that lasted more than two hours.

A few supporters were also seen burning Malay dailies after the speeches ended.

Pakatan leaders who attended the gathering included DAP president Karpal Singh, Kelantan PAS deputy commissioner II Datuk Husam Musa, Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, state exco member Elizabeth Wong and Teresa Kok.

Teoh was giving a statement to the commission, after which he was found dead on the fifth floor of Plaza Masalam in Shah Alam last Thursday.

His body was found nine floors below the commission’s office on the 14th floor of the building at 1.30pm.

Teoh was assisting the commission in investigations pertaining to alleged misappropriation of allocations involving several Selangor assemblymen.

*******************

The fact is that, if only 3,000 people attended and 80% of the attndees are ethnics who are only 26% minority, it is not reflective an illustration of  “sad and angry over the incident that had shocked the nation”. Besides DAP and PKR Leaders who would capitalise on opportunity like this to demonstrate their thearterical politics, none of the prominent PAS Leaders who represent the Malay-Muslim majority bothered to attend.

It is still too early to call for an RCI, if there is any shred of reason to do so. The Police have not finished their investigations yet. The Police will use reports from the pathologists, statements taken from people like MACC officers who are involved with Teoh, Plaza Masalam security personnel and even people who are known to see Teoh alive, like Pakatan Rakyat appointed Kajang Municipal Councillor Tan Boon Wah. As reported yesterday, Tan refused to give co-operation on the Police investigations. It is not known why Tan refused but  rumours are spreading that Tan has the information pertinent to the case being investigated by MACC that is somehow linked to Teoh.

The question for the reason to call for an RCI is unclear except to play into the theaterics of DAP politics, which in the past 40 years have been known to capitalise every single opportunity to belittle, if not demonize the authorities, especially the Police Force.

The “Thirteen Million Ringgit” question: Had the ‘sudden death’ been anyone other than a DAP and/or of Chinese ethnic, found dead after an interview MACC, for example an UMNO clerk from Benut or Kuala Pilah, would DAP Leaders come out strong to demand for an RCI?

The truth is that, the past 49 years since Emergency was declared over by HM Seri Paduka Baginda Yang DiPertuan Agong III Tuanku Syed Putra Jamalulail, thousands of Policemen and military personnels, most of the them Malays being gunned down by bandits, Communist Terrorists or gangsters of the underworld, who are predominantly Chinese. Never once DAP came out and strongly demanded for an RCI to investigate any of these gunning, sometime in cold blood of the people who actually paid meagrely to risk their lives to provide Malaysians, regardless race or faith, the blanket of protection and security they so enjoy and took for granted.

One of the person being gunned in cold blood was the former IGP. The gunning down of the IGP Tan Sri Abdul Rahman Hashim on 7 June 1974 in broad day light in Kuala Lumpur is actually in the interest of the majority and nation, especially when it was said that CTs are the people responsible for the assassination. Where was the DAP then and their “Call for RCI” when the IGP was gunned down? Why didn’t the DAP organise something for the funeral of Tan Sri Abdul Rahman Hashim?

For that the demand for an RCI for this ‘sudden death’ case  is nothing but theaterical politics, especially for DAP whose leaders are being linked to the Lords of the Underworld Vices. These linkages are made known not by BN Leaders, but by PKR elected representatives, who are actually strange-bedfellows to the ‘marriage-of-invonvenience’ for the ‘unholy union’ of Pakatan Rakyat.

We at BigDogDotCom are very sympathetic to the Teoh family, Madam Soh Cher Wei and friends for their loss. Never the less, we have the complete faith in the professionalism of the Royal Malaysian Police, namely Chief Constable Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan, CID Chief Commissioner of Police Dato’ Mohd. Bakri Zinin, SB Chief Commissioner of Police Dato’ Ramli Shaari, Selangor CPO Deputy Commissioner of Police Dato’ Khalid Abu Bakar and their offcers to solve this mystery of Teoh Beng Hock’s ‘sudden death’.

*Updated Wednesday 22 July 2009 0830hrs

The current Criminal Procedure Code(CPC) under the Police Act is comprehensive on dealing with sudden death. Then, a High Court inquest on the sudden death would be as good as any RCI.

Tan Boon Wah refuse to give statement to the Police

The investigation of the Political Secretary Teoh Beng Hock’s highly charged news item sudden death last Thursday is reported to be 60 percent completed. The Police issued a preliminary investigations statement this afternoon.

Bernama.com has the story:

Teoh’s case 60pct complete-Police

 

 2009-07-20 16:53

SHAH ALAM:The investigation into the death of political aide, Teoh Beng Hock, 30, is 60 per cent completed, said the Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan.

“We are still investigating the case and God willing will complete investigations as soon as possible and then make an announcement,” he told reporters after a briefing on the investigation by senior officers at the Selangor police contingent hereMonday.

Teoh, who was the aide to Ean Yong Hian Wah, the Selangor state executive councillor for the New Village Development and Illegal Factory Task-force, was found dead on July 16 in the corridor on the fifth floor of Plaza Masalam after being questioned by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission.

He was among winesses called to help into MACC investigations related to the misappropriation of state allocations by several assemblymen.

Meanwhile, Selangor chief police officer, Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar, said police had recorded 33 statements including from 25 MACC officers.

He said police will call Yong and Kota Alam Shah assemblyman M.Manoharan to record their statements.

Khalid said Teoh was found to have contacted Yong and Manoharan before he was questioned and according to him police would also record conversations with his family at an appropriate time.

Police also want to record conversations with Kajang municipal council member Tan Boon Wah as he had made a police report against the MACC last Saturday but refused to give a statement, he said.

Khalid said: “I advise him to present himself to the police station to give a statement on the report he made, if not, we will have to issue a notice under Section 11 of the Penal Code to order him to give a statement at the station.

He said if Tan continued to refuse to give a statement on the police report, police would take further action on him for making a false report.

Besides that, he said police would also call two people who were with Tan and Teoh who were questioned by the MACC on the same day.

Asked about the things taken from the Selangor MACC office yesterday, Khalid his people revisited the scene and gathered what had been left on the first day of the incident.

Yesterday evening, police took documents and a window latch fromm the 14th floor for investigation into Teoh’s death which is still classified as sudden death.

Asked about the approximate time of Teoh’s death, Khalid said: “If we follow the initial report of the doctor about four to five hours before the body was
found.

He said closed-circuit camera recording showed Teoh entered the building on the evening of July 15 and there was no recording of him leaving.

Answering a question on the possibility that Teoh fell from the 14th floor, Khalid said: “Highly possible.”

He said Teoh’s handphone was with the police since last Thursday and that it was obtained from a MACC investigation officer and did not dismiss the possibility that the phone could unravel what happened.

Asked if Teoh’s death may be linked to secret society activites, he said police were investigating from various aspects. (Bernama)

***********************

However, the much talked about investigations seems to hit another snag. The last person to see DAP man Teoh Beng Hock was said to be refusing to give statement to the Police. Pakatan Rakyat appointed Kajang Municipal Councillor Tan Boon Wah was the last person known to see Teoh alive, as at 600am on Thursday, is believed not co-operating with the Police. If this was true, it is not known why Tan is refusing to give a statement.

Usually, the last person with the deceased while he or she is still alive in any murder case would be a suspect. Since the sudden death of Teoh has not been classified as murder, then Tan is not a suspect. Tan was also called in by the Selangor MACC last Thursday to assist in the ongoing investigations of Pakatan Rakyat’s elected representatives misappropriation of Selangor State funds.

Is there anything that Tan want to hide, that he risked to be charged for obstruction of justice for refusal to give a statement in an on going Police investigations?

The plot thickens. Hence, the investgations is being continued.
