The Plaza Masalam building where Teoh fell to his death.

The Plaza Masalam building where Teoh fell to his death.

SHAH ALAM: The aide to a Selangor state executive council (exco) member who was assisting the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) in an investigation was found dead at Plaza Masalam, nine floors below the MACC office.

A janitor found the body of Teoh Beng Hock, 30, the political secretary of Sri Kembangan assemblyman Ean Yong Hian Wah, sprawled on the fifth floor of the 20-storey building at about 1:30pm on Thursday.

Teoh was taken to the MACC office at 6pm on Wednesday to assist in the graftbusting agency’s investigation into the alleged abuse of constituency development funds by several state assemblymen.

After plotting the downfall of PR Perak government and replaced Muhammad Muhammad as the Selangor UMNO chief. Looks like Najib is now plotting to topple the Selangor state government by whatever means. BN tried to bring down the Selangor MB over the matter of cows and car; then they arrested Teresa Kok on Khir Toyo’s instigation. Now, the MACC, even before a police report has been made, was sent in to intimidate the Pakatan politicians in a heavy-handed manner. Not only were the DAP politicians being targetted but also the people who received the assistance.

benghockMACC is acting lightning-fast on any issue which concern the opposition and crawl like a tortoise when dealing with scandal  such as the PKFZ, the dentist’s trip to Disneyland etc which involved UMNO-BN stooges.

MACC director of investigation Datuk Mohd Shukri Abdull said Teoh was released at about 3:45am on Thursday after his officers had finished recording his statement.

“No one saw him after that until we were alerted that a body had been found on the fifth floor at about 1:30pm,”

Is this logical, a man who is suppose to get married the very day, loitering MACC building from 3:45am to 1:30pm? 8 hours 45 minutes loitering as  if there is no big day for him that day? Wouldn’t he be rushing back to get ready for the wedding? Doesn’t make sense at all unless someone is lying and is trying to cover-up something! This ala Saddam and Pol Pot style of  interrogation and the handling of suspects or witnesses!

“…….adding that Teoh was a witness in the MACC investigation”

Interrogated as a witness from 6pm to 3.45 am! Why through out the night when it can be done during office hour? Why was this necessary? It just don’t make sense ‘questioning’ a witness unless of course intimidating him and forcing him to confess false confession against his boss. This just another kind of torture though not physically but mentally. Teoh Beng Hock  was young, vital and energetic man, why would he want to jump to death? Could one of these theories be the cause of Teoh’s death – fallen unintentionally, committed suicide by jumping or he may have been pushed (but by whom!).

AS IT SUICIDE?
IS THERE FOUL PLAY?

“There is not going to be any cover-up in this investigation, and I assure the public and his family that we will conduct a thorough investigation into his death. (Selangor Chief Police Officer Deputy Comm Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar)

Can anyone believe this?? Or will the  “thorough” investigation be just the way they investigated Kugan’s death and all those detainees that died in their lock-ups? The public has had enough of the word “assure” and all the promises these men-in-blue made when in the end everything were spin-ed, twisted, cover-up and stamped NFA. Just to recall – what happen to Kugan’s death investigation? The investigation into Kugan’s death has never yielded any results, raising allegations of a cover-up. Will this incident be the same?

MACC  Selangor has some serious explanation to make for the death of  Teoh Beng Hock. But as usual and always will be – explanation given is always a cover-up explanation. Something needs to be done to stopped this culture of harassment, culture of hooliganism and unprofessional conduct of MACC, police and the destruction of the Malaysian Constitution by the judiciary.

Read  Here, and  Here on how this MACC torture witnesses to admit the allegations made by them.

By the way, a special thanks to the previous PM for this  “better and transparent” MACC, old wine in a new bottle!

wreath2Anakdesa extended his condolences to Teoh’s family for the tragic loss and may God punish the culprit/s if this is foul play.

(Updated July 20, 2009) – Selangor police chief Khalid Abu Bakar said that the police have seized Teoh Beng Hock’s mobile phone from the anti-corruption investigating officer and that they are looking into the call list. (See Video Here)

Ahhh….isn’t is interesting? MACC said Teoh Beng Hock was released at 3:45am, how come his handphone was still with the MACC Investigating Officer? He must have walked to the IO and handed to the IO his handphone and jump out the window! Can anyone buy this story of being released at 3:45am as claimed by MACC director of investigation Datuk Mohd Shukri Abdull?

Selangor police chief Khalid Abu Bakar today said that police revisited the site where Teoh Beng Hock died and found window components believed to have come from the 14th floor, occupied by the MACC, next to his body. (Read Here)

Well, well…what do you think of this? Teoh Beng Hock after handing over his handphone, walked over to the window, broke the window components and jump while clutching onto the components. Can anyone again buy this story?

Or would you buy this theory? They dragged him to the window, opened the window, push his head to look down to make him scared, intimidated him that he be thrown out the window if he don’t sign the force false confessions against Seri Kembangan assemblyman Ean Yong Hian Wah and out of fear of falling  he gripped onto the window components and somehow slipped or pushed and the window component give away and Teoh Beng Hock fall while still clutching the components. Hemmmm…I must have been watching too much Hollywood and Bollywood movies!

Siasatan awal mendapati Teoh Beng Hock sudah meninggal dunia empat atau lima jam sebelum mayatnya ditemui dekat pejabat Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) Selangor pukul 1.30 tengah hari Khamis lalu, kata ketua polis negeri. (Read Here)

That would be, say around 9:30am or 8:30am. Wasn’t that the during the continuation of the interrogation (if there was) after he was seen by Tan Boon Wah in the MACC pantry around 6:00am?

police-tent-may26

The Malaysian Insider, IPOH, May 26 — Despite the arrest of five workers and the police “takeover” of the tent where the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) hunger strike was to take place, the three-day hunger strike has been launched by ousted Perak mentri besar Datuk Seri Nizar Jamaluddin. Earlier, the light strike force officers moved in at 7am, arresting two local and three Burmese workers from an event management company who were putting up the tent and a giant balloon. The balloon was also confiscated. The officers then occupied the tent to block PR from continuing with their fast, which was meant to be part of a move to press for fresh Perak state elections. As at 9.30am, the riot police were still under the tent just outside the DAP headquarters here and having breakfast. A total of 40 policemen, two jeeps, four police cars, two vans and seven trucks were seen in the area. Police tried to remove the tent at one point but DAP’s Ngeh Koo Ham negotiated with them. The police said the tent was an illegal structure but the DAP members present pleaded with them “not to take sides”, saying there were many other illegal structures in the town. In the end, the police stood down and allowed the launch to take place.

Really unfair…..those arrested are just doing their job for an event management company. They are just a few innocent labourers earning to put bread and butter on the table for their families. WHY ARREST THEM??

Will not this kind of action backlashed  the government. This I’m sure will make our fellow citizens in Perak angrier. The police seems to put fear among the people but what irk me is the double-standard in carrying out their duties. While  Khairy Jamaluddin a.k.a  KJ could demonstrate with impunity, those outside BN are arrested over anything.

(By Debra Chong, The Malaysian Insider)  The Federal Court’s ruling last week overturning a decision made by an elected state assembly speaker crossed the boundaries separating the powers between the judiciary and legislature and has churned up a new challenger. Suspended Puchong MP Gobind Singh Deo plans to sue Dewan Rakyat Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia for his ruling last month barring him from taking part in Parliament. Fondly known as the “Little Lion of Puchong,” Gobind is set to file his suit at the High Court here at 11am tomorrow, his father and DAP chairman Karpal Singh told reporters here today. Karpal appeared to relish the chance to challenge the Speaker’s decisions. The Bukit Gelugor MP has often found himself on the receiving end of Pandikar Amin’s unwanted attention. “He’s got a precedent. They started it,” noted Karpal. Gobind was suspended for one year from March 16 without an MP’s allowances and benefits after an outburst inside Parliament involving Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak. The fiery first-term lawmaker had allegedly linked Najib to a highly sensationalised murder case involving a Mongolian model, Altantuya Shaariibuu, whose remains were found in a jungle clearing in nearby Shah Alam three years ago.

This is what will happen when one tries to please his master, even if goes against the Constitution of Malaysia which is the supreme law of the land. I am referring to the controversial decision by Malaysia’s federal court that declared that the Speaker of the Perak state assembly, V Sivakumar, had no right to suspend 7 BN lawmakes from attending legislative sittings.

Article 72 (1) of the Federal Constitution which states:

72. (1) The validity of any proceedings in the Legislative Assembly of any State shall not be questioned in any court.

Can any learned human being interpret the meaning of the above article? I mean in simple English. Or do we really need a genius to understand such a simple sentence?

A simple anakdesa understanding of the above sentence is that the decision and validity of any proceedings in any legislative Assembly in any state in Malaysia is beyond the reach of the courts.

Now Suspended Puchong MP Gobind Singh Deo plans to sue Dewan Rakyat Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia for his ruling last month barring him from taking part in Parliament using the controversy interpretation of the above article.

The BIG question now is – Will there be 2 kinds of interpretation of the above law? A selective justice? One for the master and one for the slave? 

What goes around will come around!

Read here to know

Tunku Abdul Aziz Ibrahim raised many eyebrows, not least from associates, when he joined DAP in August and was promptly named a vice-president of the party. The co-founder of the Malaysian chapter of Transparency International has no intention of being a token Malay presence in the multi-racial but Chinese-dominated party. He has found a new platform in the DAP to advocate transparency, accountability, justice and equality.

Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim told a 20,000-strong rally that he had the numbers to form a new government and wants to meet with Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to discuss a handover.

“Tomorrow is the D-day. We are ready to form the government. We have the numbers and we are ready to announce tomorrow.

pakatan rakyat 916 gathering kelana jaya 150908 people.jpg“Tomorrow, we are ready. But the best time (for the takeover), I tell you, is when we meet the prime minister.

“A peaceful transition is paramount,” he added, conceding that there will not be a change of government tomorrow as he had promised earlier.

According to him, Pakatan Rakyat has submitted a letter to Abdullah today seeking a meeting for a smooth transition of power.

pakatan rakyat 916 gathering kelana jaya 150908 anwar.jpg“We have the numbers but we want to meet with Abdullah, show him the evidence and work out a handover because we want a peaceful transition,” he said to the jubilant cheers of the crowd.

The opposition leader also did not provide more information on how many MPs Pakatan has in the bag and the number of government defectors.Anwar will need at least 31 defectors from BN and perhaps over 40 for a stable Pakatan government.

“I believe that the government will fall in the next few weeks,” he told journalists after the rally.

The massive crowd had earlier gathered at the Kelana Jaya stadium in Petaling Jaya to celebrate Pakatan’s ‘Hari Malaysia’ celebration.

ISA dragnet slammed

Anwar, who began his 45-minute speech at 10.45pm, also emphasised the importance of Sabah and Sarawak to Malaysia.

pakatan rakyat 916 gathering kelana jaya 150908 stage.jpgHe criticised the ruling Barisan Nasional for pursuing a divide-and-rule agenda at the expense of the two east Malaysian states.

“This is the first time ever a celebration of this scale is being held to recognise that we are one – that Sabah and Sarawak are part of Malaysia,” Anwar told the crowd.

He added that he would declare Sept 16 a national holiday when he takes over the government.

Anwar also slammed the Abdullah-led government of practising racial politics, which he said led to last Friday’s arrests of three people under the Internal Security Act.

pakatan rakyat 916 gathering kelana jaya 150908 big screen.jpgHe urged the majority Malays not to be swayed by BN policies.

“The Ketuanan Melayu (Malay supremacy) benefitted only the rich and elite Malays, not you,” he said.

Anwar also said that he would reduce fuel prices by 70 sen the very next day after forming the government.

Most of those in the crowd are at the stadium tonight in the belief that Anwar would make an important announcement on the formation of a new government, which the PKR leader has repeatedly claimed he would do by tomorrow.

High expectation

Earlier, Anwar entered the venue at about 9.40pm to thunderous chants of ‘Reformasi!’ and ‘Merdeka’.

Many Pakatan leaders were already at the stadium, most of them also believing that Anwar would make an important announcement at the rally.

Guan Eng and DAP veteran Lim Kit Siang had earlier entered the stadium to loud cheers.

Many people on the ground whom Malaysiakini spoke to also expressed confidence of an impending change.

“He may reveal the first batch of defectors and maybe on how they will approach the king. I think they will wrap it up and form a new government by the end of this month,” said retiree G Maniam.

‘I am surprised at how fast things are changing,” said another Pakatan supporter at the stadium, Anthony Tong.

pakatan rakyat 916 gathering kelana jaya 150908 crowd.jpgThe 52-year-old accountant from Cheras said that he would not be disappointed even if Anwar managed to seize power by the end of this year.

“What Anwar has said will happen soon as all the people are backing him. The change of government will happen very soon now,” said Nursikin Bahrom, a 23-year-old student.

“Anwar has promised us a new beginning and we will support him when the battle begins on the 16th… he is our new prime minister and the BN should realise this,” said businessman Abdul Aziz Rashid, 36.

Don’t invite police, military

Meanwhile, PKR information chief Tian Chua said the three-member opposition alliance had already secured a simple majority in parliament and that more government lawmakers would defect later.

pakatan rakyat sept 16 gathering crowd waving flagBut he said there were concerns that the coalition – which has ruled since independence from Britain 51 years ago – would stoke conflict in order to justify a crackdown to keep itself in power.

“We want Abdullah to assure us there will be no repressive force used, like involving the police or inviting the military to take control,” he told AFP.

Tian said the opposition’s push had been helped by the detention of an opposition politician, a prominent blogger and a journalist under draconian ISA.

pakatan rakyat 916 gathering kelana jaya 150908f flag.jpg“Abdullah’s final crackdown made people lose hope that he is ever going to be a liberal reformer, which he promised,” he said.

Home Minister Syed Hamid Albar defended the detentions but said it was a police operation and not his idea – comments ridiculed by the opposition, which said he and Abdullah must be held accountable.

Spirits were high at the stadium, which was adorned with Malaysian flags and posters demanding the release of the opposition politician and the blogger – who remain in custody while the journalist was freed.

At the rally, Anwar set out an agenda to fight corruption and protect the rights of all citizens in Malaysia.”The Pakatan Rakyat government will uphold justice, a free judiciary, a free media and a professional police force,” he said.
