Police urge the public not to speculate on Teoh’s death

KUALA LUMPUR, 17 July 2009: The police have urged the public not to speculate on the cause of the death of Teoh Beng Hock, the aide to Selangor executive council member Ean Yong Hian Wah.

Deputy Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar said all quarters should wait for the investigation report and not jump to conclusions.

“We will do the autopsy this morning. Please wait until the autopsy is completed,” he told a press conference after closing a seminar for chemical diversion investigators here today.

Ismail said he hoped the autopsy report would provide clues on Teoh’s death, adding that the investigation was done according to legal procedures.

Asked why four pathologists were involved in the investigation, Ismail said the police were using all the resources at their disposal.

“It is normal for us to seek assistance from others. I have yet to receive any report on the incident from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC),” he said.

On 16 July, Teoh, 30, was found dead on the roof of the fifth floor of Plaza Masalam, Shah Alam. The Selangor MACC office is on the 14th floor, where Teoh had earlier given statements in relation to the MACC’s probe on the alleged abuse of government allocations. — Bernama

    Not convinced at all. Speculation and what our eyes can see prove that it’s pointing towards the same direction.

    And what happened to the 11 cops who were involved in Kugan’s death?

  2. stk says:

    Nobody will speculate if the police are doing their job instead of being an Umno lapdog, and the MACC too.

    Looks like these enforcement agencies are using the taxpayer’ s money to look for trouble with the opposition, PR.

    Why is MACC investigating the PR for allegedly using funds for a mere RM50K and yet turn a blind eye to those BN big sharks like the Melaka CM, Khir Toyo with a grand Balinese palace, and much, much more that involved millions and billions like the PKFZ scandal – if this is not selective persecution than what is. The BN should not do such a despicable act and should behave [in a civilised, not cowardly manner] by misusing these agencies to frustrated the PR.

    Or it is because the PR are doing a good job and BN is not?

    Sorry. Tan Sri. You have not the right credentials to advise. We cannot trust you.

  4. kanna says:

    And we are supposed to believe [this]. The Malaysian cops are the biggest liars, no way we can trust them.

  5. Gopal Raj Kumar says:

    The absence of a plausible reason at least as to how someone could under the circumstances reported and not rebutted by the police fall to his death whilst in their clutches is why speculation is rife.

    When people charged with a duty to protect and to preserve those in their charge fail and then contradict themselves with excuses instead of reasons, speculation and rumour become the order of the day.

    For those in the non-Indian [Malaysian] communities that raised doubt and paid lip service to Kugan and his family during their moment of grief, this death is a warning that those who lurk in the shadows and kill with impunity and legal sanction await you too.

    Death in these or in any other circumstances does not discriminate and neither do those who carry out these acts most foul. The Triads who keep policemen on their payroll are not bumiputeras or Umno-puteras. They are simply a scourge we must all work together to get rid off.

    Never again. Gather in unison and say: never again.

    People who are supposed to be punished are not punished. People who are not supposed to be punished are punished.

  7. Hanan says:

    He died, but seems that he died in many ways. Surely he died, in just one way….. not in so many ways.

    Speculator’s job is to speculate. It does not matter what way he died.

    For [those who are] anti-government [including] politicians, it is the ideal event to provide further speculation. Ideal time to taint.

    When the truth is found, it would be accepted — only, and only if the truth corresponds with their own particular speculation. The rest of the speculators can then further speculate about the findings, the procedures, the members etc. That I speculate… are there any other speculators out there who have other speculations?

  8. siew eng says:

    Fine. Then answer all the outstanding questions about the case. And answer well.

    Don’t leave multiple unanswered questions, as in the case of Altantuya’s murder and many other deaths in the hands of the authorities (check out Suaram’s monitoring report for 2008).

    The [traditional] media may choose to ignore the uncomfortable facts, but the internet will perpetuate them forever.

    So answer well.
