Correct, correct, correct…Teoh Beng Hock was murdered

I (and many Chinese grassroots) believe he was murdered by a Selangor UMNO politician through MACC. Use your common sense to guess the name of that UMNO politician. OK!

Cops to probe Guan Eng for saying Beng Hock was murdered

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 24 — The police have initiated a sedition investigation against Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng for suggesting Teoh Beng Hock was murdered, in a move that will fuel the controversy surrounding the DAP aide’s death.

Selangor police chief Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar said today that Lim (picture), the DAP secretary-general, was not facing immediate arrest, but would have his statement recorded.

Khalid said Lim was being investigated over his speech made at the inaugural Pakatan Rakyat (PR) convention last Saturday in Shah Alam.

Selangor police lodged a police report over Lim’s speech on Monday. In his speech, Lim had said that “Teoh Beng Hock had been cruelly murdered. I want to remind those responsible that we will not forget you because there is no forgiveness for you.”

Khalid said today that no one should make unsubstantiated remarks. “Lim Guan Eng’s remarks can be considered to be an incitement, causing the public to believe that Teoh Beng Hock had been murdered.”

He added that the police would also record a statement from Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to help in its probe against Lim.

The coroner’s inquest into Teoh’s mysterious death was postponed twice this month because pathologists have yet to complete their report on the second autopsy of the political aide’s remains.

The inquest by coroner Azmil Munthapa Abas was originally scheduled to continue last week, but lawyers now only expect it to only be resumed next month.

The 30-year-old Selangor political secretary who was found dead at Plaza Masalam on July 16 after overnight questioning by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), which was probing the abuse of state funds by politicians from the ruling Pakatan Rakyat state government.

The findings of the second autopsy carried out at the Sungai Buloh hospital on Nov 22 are highly anticipated as they may confirm suspicions that Teoh was murdered.

Two foreign experts — Dr Peter Vanezis for MACC and Dr Pornthip Rojanasunand for the Selangor government — observed the post-mortem carried out by Sungai Buloh Hospital chief pathologist Dr Shahidan Md Noor. Dr Pornthip, a renowned Thai pathologist, had earlier said Teoh’s death was “80 per cent” homicide based on photographic evidence.

However, her views are contrary to an earlier autopsy carried by local pathologists. The coroner then ordered the exhumation of Teoh’s remains and the second autopsy.
