TEOH’S DEATH 80% HOMICIDE: SELANGOR CALLS ON AUTHORITIES TO FURTHER INVESTIGATE
SHAH ALAM: The Selangor government is concerned with the findings made by Thai pathologist Dr Pornthip Rojanasunand at the Teoh Beng Hock’s inquest at today. She had among others concluded that there is an 80 % probability that Teoh’s death was homicide and suggested that the deceased could have been strangled before falling from the 14th floor of Plaza Masalam.
Her evidence has indeed proven that the state’s fear on the safety of government officials during interrogation by Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission is not totally unfounded.
We hope that the relevant authorities will study Dr Pornthip’s evidence objectively to ensure that justice is served. Given her experience in investigating complicated homicide and having performed more than 10,000 autopsies in the last 27 years, Dr Pornthip’s evidence cannot be taken lightly.
The State reiterate its’ call for a Royal Commission of Inquiry into Teoh’s death instead of just looking into the interrogation methods used on him by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).
