Commission can act after inquest, says Najib

PEKAN: The inquest into the death of political aide Teoh Beng Hock will have to be completed before the Royal Commission of Inquiry (RIC) can start looking into interrogation methods used by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said the inquest was to determine the cause of death.

“After the inquest is over, RIC can start looking into procedures used by MACC and for them to take into consideration any findings made.

‘’The sequence has to be right,” he told reporters after launching the East Coast Economic Region Special Economic Zone (ECER SEZ) and Pekan Agropolitan Project in Runchang here yesterday.

Najib was asked to comment about the development of the inquest.

Teoh, 30, political secretary to Selangor exco member Ean Yong Hian Wah, was found dead on July 16 at Plaza Masalam in Shah Alam the morning after he was interviewed by the MACC.

On claims that those who took part in Saturday’s anti-Internal Security Act illegal assembly were paid by certain quarters, Najib said there was a possibility, adding the police should be allowed to carry out their investigations.

On Tuesday, a Malay daily carried a report quoting Information, Communication and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim as saying that based on sources, many of the protesters were paid to attend the rally.
