‘No action, but TBH interrogator now MACC director?’

DAP has lamented that instead of facing action for involvement in the death of DAP aide Teoh Beng Hock, one of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) officers has instead been promoted as Sabah director.

On Sept 5 last year, the Court of Appeal ruled that Teoh’s death was “accelerated by an unlawful act or acts” of persons inclusive of the MACC officers involved in Beng Hock’s case.

“In his judgment, (Appeals Court judge) Ariff Md Yusof had even said that the inspector-general of police (IGP) must commence investigations while the attorney-general must frame the charges deemed fit.

“Six months have lapsed; the IGP should now answer the family and the concerned public. What have the police done to identify and charge the MACC officers who should be held responsible for the death of Teoh Beng Hock?

“While we are saddened by the fact that no one has yet to be charged for the death of Beng Hock, we note that one of the MACC officers who last interrogated Beng Hock, Hishamuddin Hashim, is now promoted as the director of Sabah MACC,” Kulai MP Teo Nie Ching (right) said in a statement today.

Teo cited the current MACC’s organisation chart that showed Hishamuddin, the former deputy director of MACC Selangor, to be the new head of Sabah MACC.

She pointed out that the Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) into Beng Hock’s death had singled out three officers, Hishammuddin, investigation officer Arman Alies and assistant investigating officer Mohd Ashraf Mohd Yunus, for their actions that had led to his death.

Beng Hock was found dead at outside the MACC Selangor headquarters on July 16, 2009, after a night of interrogation over a probe on his boss, Selangor state executive councillor Ean Yong Hian Wah.

Beng Hock’s family: How much longer do we have to wait for justice?

PETALING JAYA: No one can blame the family of the late Teoh Beng Hock for having little faith in Malaysia’s justice system.

After all, it took five long years for the Court of Appeal to finally deliver a judgement on Beng Hock’s death at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) headquarters.

The court ruled his death as death in custody, setting aside the previous suicide ruling. Beng Hock was the political secretary of DAP Sri Kembangan assemblyman Ean Yong Hian Wah.

The court’s decision certainly comes as a relief, no matter how slight, for the family.

Since the case was first heard in court in 2009, the year Beng Hock died, the family has faced all kinds of setbacks after taking up the matter against the MACC.

Did the MACC contravene the Federal Constitution in the case of Beng Hock?

The law does not authorise MACC to hold witnesses in custody. Common logic dictates that since he was merely someone held for questioning and not a suspect, he should not have been in custody.

While the court’s ruling may have finally cleared Beng Hock’s name, his family’s quest for justice continues on.

In an interview with theantdaily, Beng Hock’s younger sister, Lee Lan said that she is waiting to see exactly how the police and Attorney-General Chambers intend to bring justice for her brother’s death.

“Now that they have re-opened the case, we want to know in which direction is the case going?

It seems that the AG (Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail) has escaped from telling us the direction of the investigation,” she said.

“This has been dragging on for far too long and we want closure. This verdict should have been served to us five years ago, not now after five years.

“It clearly shows because of the failure of the court system, this case has dragged on until now. But in Beng Hock’s case, everyone knows the real reason he died. It is clear cut murder,” said Lee Lan.

Asked of their expectations of the judicial system and if they expect the AG to charge anyone, she stated: “We want the suspects to be charged, we expect the AG to do that as we want to see my brother’s killer punished.”

Her family, she added, is more concerned whether the suspects in the case would be arrested anytime soon and wants the police to assure them that there would be no delay.

Lee Lan also called on Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to fulfil his promise and see that justice is served to Beng Hock.

Beng Hock continues to haunt BN

DAP will be reminding the Chinese voters that justice for Teoh Beng Hock is still elusive.

JOHOR BARU: DAP political aide Teoh Beng Hock’s death while in the custody of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission in 2009 has returned to haunt the Barisan Nasional in the 13th general election.

DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng and assistant national publicity secretary Teo Nie Ching refreshed the public memory of the case last night when they told some 10,000 crowd that the nomination day yesterday fell on Teoh’s birthday.

“He could have been celebrating his birthday yesterday, but he is gone. He has sacrificed his life for a better Malaysia,” Lim said.

“Let’s remember his sacrifices,” he told the crowd. “As we head to the polling stations on May 5, let’s tell him that we had never given him up.”

“And let’s tell BN that we had never forgiven them,” he added.

Teoh was found dead outside of the Selangor MACC office in Shah Alam on July 16, 2009 after he was interrogated overnight in connection with a suspected abuse of state funds by a Pakatan Rakyat state leader.

The then 30-year-old Teoh was about to marry his pregnant fiancée.

Subsequent investigations of the case have brought inconclusive results and none of the MACC officials implicated in the case have been prosecuted till date.

Still no justice

Teo, when addressing crowd, said justice for Teoh remained undone.

“If the incident never happened, he would have been a 34-year-old man and a happy father today. He would have been passionately campaigning for regime change with Pakatan.

“Since PM Najib picked Beng Hock’s birthday as the nomination day, then come the polling day, let’s use our vote to claim justice for Beng Hock,” she said in a rousing tone.

Teoh Beng Hock Remembered

Nomination day for the 13th General Elections 20 April is coincidentally the birthday of Teoh Beng Hock. Amidst the excitement of GE13, Malaysians should reflect on what had happened to him and what the BN government has and has not done to seek justice for Teoh Beng Hock.

TBH

I raised my glass of blood and asked Him above
If the world has not abandoned justice and love
Let women and men rise where I have fallen
And act to halt the spread of these corrupt pollens
Then my death will not be in vain!
