Teoh Beng Hock Inquest Day 14: Testimony of alleged kickbacks expunged

Follow the developments here or on Twitter

03:23pm: Court adjourns to 2pm tomorrow. Witnesses expected to take the stand tomorrow are MACC officers Mohd Najeib Ahmad Walad, Mohd Ashraf Mohd Yunus and K. Sachianandan.

03:17pm: Abd Razak starts questioning Azhar. Azhar says Teoh appeared restless during the car ride to the MACC office,

03:05pm: Azhar disagrees with Gobind’s suggestion that Teoh was asked to drive his own car to MACC office because he would not get out of the MACC building. Azhar, who had the laptop and Hafiz, had the CPU. The two officers rode with Teoh in his car from Ean Yong’s office at the state secretariat building to MACC office in Plaza Masalam. Both offices are only a short distance away.

03:00pm: Gobind starts questioning Azhar.

02:56pm: Azhar said he last saw Teoh at 10pm in Selangor MACC office before he left to go back to his Putrajaya base.

02:35pm: Azhar said he was directed by Anuar to bring the laptop seized from Ean Yong’s office to the Selangor MACC office in Plaza Masalam. Another colleague Mohd Hafiz Idris was directed to bring the CPU. Azhar said he did not know why he was asked to bring the laptop.

02:10pm: Court resumes. Anuar’s testimony of alleged kickbacks made to a political party ordered to be expunged by coroner. 17th witness called to the stand – Putrajaya MACC officer Mohd Azhar Abang Menteri.

12:15pm: Court breaks for lunch. Proceedings resume at 2pm.

11:40am: To a question by Abd Razak, Anuar tells the court that an MACC officer, Bulkani Paharuddin had told him that another witness Tan Boon Wah, was arguing with Teoh in the men’s room of the MACC office at about 2am on July 16. Tan, who is a Kajang Municipal councillor, was one of the four witnesses present at MACC that night.

11:30am: Anuar says he didn’t lodge a police report straightaway after finding Teoh’s body because he believed that the first person who found Teoh had done so. At the time when he saw the body, there were already many people gathering on the fifth floor of the building.

11:22am: Anuar explains to the court the reason why MACC conducts night interrogation. He says in some investigations, witnesses who hold day jobs choose to be interrogated at night so it will not interfere with their work. Some witnesses choose not to be seen at MACC building for their own reasons so they choose night time to record their statement with MACC. Anuar adds the MACC office is open 24 hours.

11:10am: Court resumes

10:25am: Court takes a short recess.

10:20am: Tan Hock Chuan asks for a short break for all interested parties to have a discussion. Gobind objects again, saying, “No, the damage has been done. The allegations about DAP has been put on record. Teoh did nothing wrong. This inquest has turned into a corruption trial of Teoh Beng Hock.”

10:10am: Gobind gets up to object about Anuar’s testimony of alleged kickbacks received by a political party. He says Abd Razak has breached what was agreed yesterday, which was for the inquest to stay within the statement taken from Mohd Anuar by investigating officer ASP Ahmad Nazri Zainal. Gobind says Abd Razak is using the inquest as a platform to talk about the entire investigation by MACC. “We have nothing to hide. We can bring our witnesses and justify the allegations by Mohd Anuar. Mohd Anuar’s allegations are baseless. it is unfair for my deceased client,” Gobind tells the coroner. Abd Razak says the result of the investigation by MACC is important to establish Teoh’s state of mind.

09:35am: Mohd Anuar takes the stand for the fourth time. He is now being questioned by lawyer representing MACC Datuk Abd Razak Musa.

09:30am: Coroner Azmil Muntapha Abas allows application made by lawyer Salim Bashir for his client, Selangor executive councillor Ean Yong Hian Wah to sit in the court so that Ean Yong can listen to the testimony of Selangor Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission officer Mohd Anuar Ismail.

09:25am: Day 14 of Teoh Beng Hock inquest begins.

**********

Will heads roll? Time will tell.  Tan Boon Wah, who is the last person known to see Teoh Beng Hock alive had an argument with the deceased few hours before he died and later when the investigations started, was reluctant to give a timely full co-coperation.

Teoh Had Argument With Another MACC Witness, Inquest Told

 

SHAH ALAM, Aug 26 (Bernama) — A Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) investigating officer told the Coroner’s Court here on Wednesday he was informed that the late political aide Teoh Beng Hock had an argument with another MACC witness at the Selangor MACC office.

Mohd Anuar Ismail, who is Selangor MACC acting senior superintendent, said that after Teoh was found dead he was informed by MACC officer Bulkini Paharuddin that Teoh and Kajang Municipal Councillor Tan Boon Wah had an argument at 2am in a toilet.

Questioned by Datuk Abdul Razak Musa, the lawyer representing the MACC, at the inquest into Teoh’s death, Mohd Anuar,32, said Teoh could not have died in detention because he was released and allowed to return home after questioning.

Teoh, 30, who was a political aide to Selangor New Village Development and Illegal Factories Task Force Committee chairman Ean Yong Hian Wah, was found dead on July 16 on the fifth floor corridor of Plaza Masalam, where the Selangor MACC office is located on the 14th floor, after questioning as a witness by the MACC over alleged misappropriation of Selangor government allocations.

“I do not agree that he (Teoh) died in detention because the witness was released at 3.45am and allowed to return home. However, Teoh sought permission from the recording officer (Mohd Nadzri Ibrahim) to rest for a while. I thought he had gone back then,” said Mohd Anuar.

He also said that after seeing Teoh’s bag, he tried to locate Teoh at the MACC office but failed to do so and he was sure then that Teoh had left and would come back to the MACC office with the documents he had been asked to bring.

As such, he said, he did not contact Teoh’s lawyer or family members to enquire about him, and he had intended to hand over Teoh’s bag when they met again.

Mohd Anuar also said that no force whatsoever was used on Teoh during questioning.

Questioned about Teoh’s lawyer, M. Manoharan, who was said to have been present at the MACC office and had attempted to contact Teoh on the day he was questioned, Mohd Anuar said: “I do not know (about that).”

Asked about the MACC operating round-the-clock, Mohd Anuar explained that this was necessary because some witnesses who worked during the day would ask to have their statements recorded at night so as not to disrupt their work. Some witnesses would not want to be seen coming to the MACC office for obvious reasons and would choose to have their statements recorded at night,” he said.

The hearing, before Coroner Azmil Muntapha Abas, continues in the afternoon.

Meanwhile Gobind Singh Deo is like a defense lawyer for an acused murderer using the court room to make a political statement instead of a watch-in-brief-or-the-Teohs lawyer. More DAP theatrics is expected. Closer and closer, the realism of DAP leaders involved in hedious crimes of the underworld vices will be unravelled.

And so, the plot thickens….

  1. I think Gobind and his group of DAP lawyers who are supposedly holding watching brief for the family of the late Mr Teoh is actually watching for the DAP which have made unsubstantiated allegations against the MACC for Teoh’s death and also to ensure that no details of DAP Aduns/Excos illegal activities are announced in the inquest.

    Well Gobind for all his macho and garang demeanor in the inquest failed miserably in his tasks for DAP, it looks more and more that Teoh jumped and that DAP Aduns are chest deep in illegal fund appropriation activities i.e abuse of power i.e CORRUPTION. Talk about calling kettle calling the pot black..

    • Bro Eddy,..heheh,..Apo nak dikato,..i tink he woz forced to jump to safe his family,..d triads’ way,.. u jump ur family is safe but u dun jump den u’ll still be killed & so will ur family,.. why not choose to jump n commit suicide & b a hero fer ur family,..wat else can I say,..heheh…(,”)

  2. Sad indeed it is to see the Black Goblin making a selfish mockery of the Inquest. I had thought the essence of the Inquest was not to leave any stones unturned in determining the late Teoh’s state of mind before his death which may hinge on underlying and incriminating issues being the subject of his investigation.

    I admit I don’t know much about the law and practices pertaining to the Inquiry but the manner the Black Goblin behaves in ridiculing the MACC officials and expunges facts which will discriminate his benefactor, the DAP, makes no logical sense. It is indeed a joke that the Black Goblin can request the unsigned “surat layang” be submitted as evidence when subsequent investigations have found “nothing new” or basically baseless in the incrimination of MACC officials and the former MB on a conspiracy. It is good that the Black Goblin admitted his gruesome manner of questioning; that will only condone enforcement officers’ interrogation techniques of witnesses and suspects to get things done.

    The Inquiry is now being made a tool by the DAP for their political plight and it will continue to be so. The deceased family is shamefully playing the Black Goblin’s cards due to their political allegiances; that’s the real reason for the family request for a Royal Commission of Inquiry.

    The coroner should be steadfast in ascertaining the truth behind the death and not be carried away by the publicity stunts of the Black Goblin and the conspiring DAP. The public wants the truth and not what can and cannot be admitted selfishly by the Black Goblin who is hiding behind the family of the deceased.

    Soon, bro, the fly is already about drop dead. I pray and wish during this fasting month a quick end to those responsible for the booming vices in my state.

    • Why can’t others match the Black Goblin? Intimidate witnesses, question them in a rough and uncouth manner? Jump up, protest, interrupt every now and then? Shout or raise one’s voice for dramatic effect or instilling an element of terror.

      Yes I know, the others are well bred, polite and mainstream kind of lawyers. But my concern is that the DAP supporters are clapping their hands and urging the Black Goblin fellow to go on in that manner. Because he is their kind. The PKR Assemblyman and MP have alleged that the DAP Excos are linked with the Underworld, cohorting even in the Selangor State government premises. Terrible.

      I am most interested in the revelation that the gangster looking DAP-appointed Municipal Councilor Tan was seen arguing with Teoh in the toilet at 2 am that morning. He himself had said he saw Teoh at about 6 am. The pathologists placed Teoh’s death at 8.30-9.00 am. He had initially avoided contact with the authorities and refused to provide DNA sample. Could he be the one responsible for Teoh’s demise?

      The Inquest must pursue this new information to the maximum. It’s within the legal job specification of an Inquest, as spelt out by the
      Coroner yesterday.

  3. what gangster link? how come by now MACC and police have yet to arrest anyone or expose anything? we all know how much the mACC and the police hates DAP. 😀

    yawn..big dog, your conspiracy theories are getting stale. come on..give us some evidences and explosive claism!

    • Look at this Kam fellow. It doesn’t cross his mind
      that the Underworld link is still under investigation. Or he refuses to think that way. He simply asks people to show evidence. What is he talking about?

      Yet people always always use the word “allege”. Maybe he doesn’t understand the word. Maybe he doesn’t understand law procedures. Maybe he doesn’t understand procedures, period.

      He should try to defend his party by giving the reasons why the DAP Exco links with the Underworld cannot possibly exist. But he can’t, can he?

      Let’s wait for the authorities to come out with a statement regarding the links one way or another. It may take time because the theaterics by such people as the Black Goblin regarding the unsigned “surat layang” has made the Coroner direct the Police to do some investigation. That’s what they are good at – delaying to suit their undeclared purpose.

      But in the case of this fellow, he jumps the gun, asking for evidence before the investigation is completed. Like his boss, the DAP Sec Gen LGE, who wrote a letter blaming MACC just as the Police started their investigation on Teoh’s case. What kind of fellows are these?

    • Stale as it may be, and yet there are demands for how this episode is commented here in BigDogDotCom.

      Yes we are tempted some ‘juicy details’. However, unlike pro-Pakatan Rakyat techno-cyber-anarchists, we are unable to. We respect the law and the process of the law.

      We thoroughly believe in time, everything will be unravelled.

      This is the reality of life. Processes takes time. Unlike drama in the electronic screnes or concocted in a techno-cyber-anarchists’ figment of imagination, the unravelling is not smooth as if it was scripted by an award winning screen playwright.

    • woww thats so funny , its it the DAP who very hates and blantant accused Police and MACC for murders ??? And this monkey DAP dont have any proof !!!

      Just look to gobind , he just want to guard DAP ass !!!

    • yeah

      YAWN all you like, you are now unsettled and in a state of denial

      don’t bother pretending, it doesn’t work

      heh heh

    • Why the hurry? Slow and steady ler, they want to catch the whole network, not only ones identified by TEOH. Big Big timer la..

      See, even Australia is coming together with the Malaysian authorities to nab these human trafficking, you think they want to tell you THE INFORMATION THEY HAVE to you?

      Lu ingat lu siapa lor? Semua mau kasi cerita sama lu ker? Itu pasal Teresa Kok tak suka SHIT STIRRER, nanti dalam tahi dia keluar semua ULAT!!
