Teoh buried at Semenyih memorial park

ALOR GAJAH, 20 July 2009: More than 2,000 people, including several leaders from the Pakatan Rakyat, paid their last respects to the late Teoh Beng Hock at Taman Seri Kelemak here today.

The crowd of mourners began arriving since morning to convey their condolences to Teoh’s family and later joined the funeral procession.

The cortege left the house of Teoh’s parents at 11am towards Alor Gajah and to the Nirvana Memorial Park in Semenyih.

Among those present were Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, Penang chief minister who is DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng, DAP chairperson Karpal Singh, and DAP veteran Lim Kit Siang.

Teoh, 30, was found dead on the roof of the fifth floor at the Plaza Masalam building in Shah Alam, Selangor which also houses the Selangor office of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission, on Thursday.

He was a witness in the MACC investigations on alleged irregularities in the allocation of funds involving several Selangor assemblypersons.

Met by reporters, Anwar said the authorities such as the MACC and police should change the way they deal with witnesses.

“The MACC and police, especially the MACC chief commissioner, should be held responsible for this incident,” he said. — Bernama

    Anwar the master of under and over statements at the most inappropriate moments is at it again. Nothing specific. Wishy washy tripe in his typical politically-bankrupt style.

    MACC and the police should change the way they deal with witnesses. What?
    There are too many incidents where people die in custody that has become commonplace and acceptable to the general Malaysian public.

    It is a repeat of what Queensland and Western Australian policemen do to Aboriginals (or disposable humans).
