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…..
