There’s a very good reason why the police investigator ‘found’ a note, allegedly a suicide note as asserted by our remarkable world renowned Attorney General (AG), two months after Teoh’s mysterious death on the eve of his wedding when he had just a short while prior to his interrogation by MACC and subsequent death, phoned his best man to remind the latter of the important event the following day.
Strange as it may seem, that MACC had correctly claimed Teoh committed suicide immediately following the poor man’s death, two months BEFORE the suicide note ('suicide' as alleged by the AG) was fantastically discovered from Teoh’s sling bag, probably from a very secret compartment hitherto unbeknownst to police, MACC and even Dan Brown or for that matter, RPK.
We were aware that there had been accusations by MACC and police that Teoh revealed the corruption of his boss, Selangor DAP chief Ean Yong Hian Wah to the MACC, an action apparently so stressful that Teoh forgot about his wedding in order to seek relief in the Netherworld.
And we know that immediately after his death, his belongings, laptop and underwear were all diligently, scrupulously and carefully sifted for evidence of the DAP’s wrongdoings, though (perhaps due to the secret compartment in his bag) nothing incriminating was found.
But more significant than the wondrous timely discovery of a suicide note ('suicide' according to the AG) two months after Teoh’s had purportedly committed suicide (according to the AG) was the AG withholding such an important piece of evidence from the coroner’s court until now, 10 months after it was found.
The AG claimed he wanted to do the job for the coroner, namely in proving the authenticity of the note. Don't we just love the AG for such diligence, always so helpful, so thoughtful, so law abiding that surely we cannot help but scream, screech and shriek out of pride for our No 1 Law Officer. He deserves the Nobel Prize for Chemistry!
10 months after its discovery! Of course we all know that time is important and necessary to ‘prepare’ proper evidence – ask Colin Powell about the importance of preparation when he as US Secretary of State presented ‘evidence’ of Saddam Hussein’s illicit and dangerous WMD programs to the UN Security Council. He (Gani Patail, not f* Powell) deserves the Nobel Prize for Literature!
Then more gratitude would be due to some for the discovery of this vital piece of now-authenticated (by the wonderful AG) piece of evidence – it had been none other than UMNO Senator Ezam who alerted the authorities to it; he heard it from pro UMNO blogs – it’s just marvelous that UMNO bloggers and Senator Ezam had chipped in to support discovery of evidence even before the coroner’s court and the lawyer for the Teoh’s family had known about it. These are Towering Malaysians.
But in the midst fo accolades and gratitude expressed, I do have a complaint against the journalists who AGAIN misquoted that wonderful man, Mr Abdul Gani Patail, the world renowned Malaysian AG. They incorrectly quoted him saying he was briefed by the investigation officer (IO) that he (Ahmad Nazri the IO) conducted a thorough search after being advised by a psychiatrist that, ordinarily, a note would be left in a suicide case.
There’s one observation and one error in that quote:
Observation – “… ordinarily, a note would be left in a suicide case.”
I cannot help but applaud the incredibly unerring accuracy and prescience of the IO and psychiatrist that Teoh’s death was a ‘suicide case’, an important advice which then motivated the IO to search more vigorously for a note which would ‘ordinarily’ be left behind to help police investigation, and indeed it had been such valuable advice that stimulated the IO into (I presume) discovering the secret compartment in Teoh’s sling bag which brought forth the note, alleged by the AG as a suicide note.
The note apparently reflected Teoh’s grief for revealing his boss’ naughtiness to the MACC (as correctly claimed by the MACC one year ago – they have been so accurate that I am going to see them for Empat Ekor forecast) though I am still puzzled why the MACC haven't been all over Ean Yong Hian Wah to finish him off – maybe the MACC officers are compassionate people? Well, they may deserve nomination for the Nobel Prize for Peace!
Noted Error/Misquote – “…after being advised by a psychiatrist that, ordinarily, a note would be left …”
The AG didn’t say ‘psychiatrist’ but ‘psychic’. Yes, the IO was advised by a psychic that the late Teoh Beng Hock had left a note in his sling bag for them, two months after he was interred. Bloody journalists should get their facts right and stop misquoting our wonderful AG.
Now what was it I said in my initial sentence in this post?
Oh yes, “There’s a very good reason why police investigator ‘found’ a note, allegedly a suicide note as asserted by our remarkable world renowned Attorney General (AG), two months after Teoh’s mysterious death …” and why the AG had hung on to it for ten months.
We have to blame Thai pathologist Dr Pornthip Rojanasunand who is due to present her expert testimony this month, that Teoh Beng Hock was subjected to strangulation prior to his death fall.
All this psychic stuff wouldn’t have been necessary if that Thai woman wasn’t coming or wasn't so expertly and fearlessly truthful.
