Teoh's Family Insists On Royal Commission Of Inquiry.....


SHAH ALAM, July 29 -- The family of Teoh Beng Hock insists that the royal commission to be set up should also determine the cause of death of the Selangor political aide and not merely scrutinise the mode of questioning employed by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

Teoh's sister, Lee Lan, said the family expressed appreciation to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak for having met Teoh's family members and explained the setting up of the royal commission of inquiry but felt that the cause of her brother's death should be determined by the royal commission.

Teoh, 30, political aide to Selangor state executive councillor Ean Yong Hian Wah, was found dead on July 16 on the fifth floor corridor of Plaza Masalam here after having given a statement as a witness to the MACC over allegations of misuse of funds by Selangor state executive councillors. The MACC office is located on the 14th floor of Plaza Masalam.

On July 22, Najib announced that an inquest would be held to determine the cause of Teoh's death. He also said that a royal commission of inquiry would be set up to determine the standard operating procedure of questioning of witnesses and suspects by the MACC.

Lee Lan spoke to reporters outside the magistrate's court here where the inquest into Teoh's death began Monday. Teoh's father Leong Hwee, elder brother Beng Kee and fiancee Soh Cher Wei also attended the hearing today.

Coroner Azmil Muntapha Abas adjourned hearing to next Wednesday to enable counsel holding watching brief for the relevant parties to scrutinise the documents made available to the court today.

If PM really meant what he said "people first" then RCI should be the order of the day.
No more excuses as it is too glaring of his lacking in leadership and incompetency.
Sorry sis, it is too much to swallow. People are sick!!!

When a likely witness becomes an unfortunate victim
There'll be more questions asked than answers obtained
When there's only limited follow up allowed that's trim
It's natural that the cry for full justice be sustained
