Royal Commission Of Inquiry Into Teoh's Death To Be Formed

The government today agreed to form a royal commission of inquiry to look into the sudden death of political aide Teoh Beng Hock while under the watch of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission last Thursday.

The decision to form the royal commission was made at the weekly cabinet meeting today.

The meeting was chaired by Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak.

The inquiry is expected to determine the cause of Teoh's death.

The Cabinet should be commended for this brave but only transparent step to establish the truth behind Teoh's death.

I want a Royal Commision to investigate why and how we get haze every year, and what has the govt been doing about it for the past 15 years. This affects virtually every Malaysian. Sampai bila ni? Sampai mati ka?

Your reporting is wrong, Nuraina.

The RCI is formed to look into investigative procedures only and not into the death of Teoh Beng Hock.

Please clarify or are you trying to misled readers into believing that the RCI is to look into the death of TBH hence a point for najib?

If someone threw me out of a government building today, I wonder if LGE / LKS will call for RCI, Nizar hold a candle light vigil, shahrizat adopt my unborn kitten, DSN send his condolence and Khalid pay for my funeral. Or will they send a minister to Indonesia to apologize because I look like a maid? Nah, I doubt that. I am just a Malay. No one will kick and bang the door of the mortuary for my sake. Anwar, Zahid, Husam... where were you when it was revealed that the nude girl in the lock-up turned out to be a Malay? How many Malays died in the lock-up? No Malays in Kemunting? Only Hindraf? You politicians are just a bunch of hypocrites who become deaf and mute when the Malays are at the receiving end.

Sorry Kak Ena. Jez found out that I owe so much income tax. Probably more then uncle Ronnie.

After investigation over what then?Sweep under the carpet just like the police inquiry,lingam,what about kugan?The rakyat must realize by now that as long as UMNO BN is in power in this country there is no way we can find justice and truth.

aah there will not be any inquiry into Teoh's death; A Royal Commission of Inquiry will be set up, but only to look into the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission’s (MACC) investigative procedures and to determine if there were any human right violations when Teoh Beng Hock was being interrogated.

This falls short of public expectations and is unsatisfactory and unacceptable.

The RCI is only to investigate the interrogation methods used by MACC on witnesses/suspects and not to investigate TBH's death per se. For that they will have a coroner's inquest headed by a magistrate.

Please report correctly.

Hope we have man of guts to helm the Royal Commission and the govt to accept its finding in good faith as the last Royal Commission was a royal circus and the a joke. said...

Apparently the RCI is for MACC's investigative procdures and not necessarily relating to Beng Hock's death.

The RCI is not to investigate the death but the MACC procedures. This is below expectations.

Nothing man who does good.

Dear Nuraina,

I am afraid this news has become false.

The Royal commission is only to investigate the interrogation method and not into his death.

His death will be handled by an inquest.

Something tells me this issue ain't gonna be over soon.

i think you should correct ur statement as its not correct... its RCI for MACC investigation and inquest for Teoh's death.. Not what u have reported... Its nothing... DIsappointment!!! our death bro get no JUSTICE!!!!

Kak Nuraina,

Read properly. Royal Commission to investigate MACC's interrogation procedures, not into the cause of Teoh's death. The latter will be done by a lowly Magistrate (usually just out of law school and very wet behind the ears).

So much for truth and transparency.

What hogwash!!

Please Cik Nuraina, check your facts.

The Royal Commission is only to investigate MACC interrogation procedures NOT into cause of Teoh's death.
