tmi-nKUALA LUMPUR, July 19 — Umno-controlled newspapers, Berita Harian and Mingguan Malaysia, today slammed critics for demonising the country’s graft-busters over Teoh Beng Hock’s death, with one suggesting there is an agenda to weaken Malay-controlled institutions.

Both newspapers accused the opposition of politicising the political secretary’s death on July 16, with Mingguan saying the federal opposition Pakatan Rakyat (PR) was using the incident to divert attention away from internal problems and weaknesses.

But Berita Harian suggested the agenda was to weaken Malay-controlled institutions in the article, “Kematian Teoh timbulkan pelbagai spekulasi politik”, written by the New Straits Times group managing editor Zainul Ariffin Isa.

I am utterly disgusted by the editor’s comment, as he is still indulge in race politics after 52 years of independent.

berita2Here we have a Malaysian dead while in the custody of a government agency and suddenly this propagandists in Utusan and Berita Harian start to spin it into a racial issue. Not one report before this that I read regarding the death spoke about race until these papers start to spin the actual facts. People are just concern on the circumstances surrounding the death regardless of the deceased race. Malaysian just wants the truth and nothing but the truth. Why spin the story and make it so racist?

Is this what the new 1Malaysia about? Other races can’t question any government agency and if by doing so, means weakening Malay-controlled institutions? What an idiotic journalism is this? The people are not anti-Malay-controlled institution but the action and manner of MACC questioning “witnesses”. I believe that there are a lot of good people in MACC but certain blacksheeps are the real culprits who have actually tarnished the institution. These balls-polishers are just too eager to play ‘god’ and  to please their master even if it means ‘eliminating subject’. Just look at how they made a witness stand 4 hours during interrogation demanding that he confess for things that he did not do. Remember the police report made by one Zul, A Simpang Renggam Municipal Council administrator and the 46-year-old UMNO division leader from Maran, Pahang on how they were physically abused? Come on lah…these are two are also Malays lah. Are they weakening the Malay-controlled institution when they made the reports? The Berita Harian did not say so at that point of time. Now that the dead is a Chinese and people question and demanded answers, they say it is weakening the Malay-controlled institution! The whole point here is that Malaysian knew how impartial and incompetent the MACC is.

How can we Malaysian can ever live as Malaysian if this kind of journalists are continuing to raise racist issue. Each time an issue of this magnitude surfaces, these UMNO controlled paper will bring in the race card to intimidate the other races and try to galvanize one race.

Shouldn’t the police steps in and charged these people who fan anti-sentiment among the people. Maybe ISA-ed them or is the ISA is also meant for certain race only?

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?
