Teoh family outraged at MACC chief's suicide theory

By Debra Chong

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 7 – As the inquest into the death of a Selangor government political aide drags on with no clear end in sight, his grieving family’s frustration is fast turning into fury.

This is especially over the latest reported remarks made by the chief commissioner of the national anti-graft body, which many believe to have had a hand in pushing him over the edge.

The family of the late Teoh Beng Hock denounced the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission’s (MACC) Datuk Seri Ahmad Said Hamdan for publicly insinuating that the 30-year-old political secretary had committed suicide because he “could not withstand the pressure”.

Teoh’s younger sister, Lee Lan noted that Ahmad Said had told Chinese-language daily, Sin Chew Daily, earlier this month that he had been informed of 10 cases of people jumping from buildings after being investigated by Hong Kong’s Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) since its set-up.

The MACC, formed in January this year, was modelled after the ICAC.

“He also said that if people investigated could not withstand the pressure and jumped from the building, there was nothing that they (MACC) could do,” Lee Lan told The Malaysian Insider, repeating her statement to reporters last Saturday after saying prayers for her brother at the Seck Kia Eenh Temple in Malacca.

“If the MACC continues to make irresponsible remarks which cannot be substantiated with proof, we are prepared to go and see the Prime Minister again to urge him to immediately set up a comprehensive Royal Commission of Inquiry to investigate into Beng Hock’s cause of death,” she added, speaking for the rest of her family.


The family scored a meeting with Datuk Seri Najib Razak in his Putrajaya office on July 28.

“No stone will be left unturned in finding out the real cause of death and, if there is any foul play, action will definitely be taken,” the PM promised them then.

Lee Lan, who was the closest of three other siblings to Teoh, challenged Ahmad Said to answer three questions:

1. Who saw Beng Hock jump from [the] MACC building?

2. Beng Hock was classified as a witness in the investigation, what pressure would he have faced?
3. Will MACC’s interrogation method bring about pressure on the witness or suspect to cause them to jump to death?

Teoh was found dead outside the MACC’s Selangor office in Plaza Masalam, Shah Alam on July 16, the same day he was to register his marriage to his pregnant sweetheart.

He had been interrogated overnight by MACC investigators probing claims that his boss, first-term Selangor DAP state lawmaker and executive councillor Ean Yong Hian Wah, had unlawfully dipped his fingers into state funds.

The inquest will resume tomorrow after a one week break.

why is there little news on the search of the murderer?

I'm sure if Najis was murdered, the murderer would be found in less than one week. Come on, malaysia sux.

Important STOP press for Teo BH - hopefully not forgotten here...no contempt of court but assist the Inquest to clear the doubts with investigative line of questions on latest exposures with missing important links - Could GM be killed for this case?

A lot of questions need to be answered on the two DNA
samples found on Teoh Beng Hock's clothes.

1. Is it normal that DNA samples are done for each and every post mortem especially that of Gopala Muniam [matched] and also L Jeganathan [not matched]? Since this is 50-50 chance of matching
more work on this other unidentified DNA must go on.

2. Since it is a 99.9 matching for G Muniam, we have to know who is this G. Muniam who was alleged to have
died on 17 July 2009. What does G. Muniam do for a living? Could he be in the same building as TBH prior to his alleged death? We need to see the bio data of G M and his death certificate and other burial details. Can he be involved with the death of TBH?

3. Who was the officer of MACC who had initially refused DNA examination? What happened subsequently? Has this officer called to the witness stand?

4. Can it be that GM was killed mysteriously on the
day TBH's death was revealed belately? Where is the Police Report on GM case? Who are the other family members of GM? Where is the hospital's report on GM?

5. Is it true that the condition of the hospital concerned was cramped?

6. Is it possible that the drama has moved to the hospitals concerned against several other identified behaviour at MACC on 17th July?
