Today The Malaysian Insider reported:
KUALA LUMPUR 7 Mac: The Royal Commission of Inquiry into the death of Teoh Beng Hock was told today that no information on short messaging service (SMS) and calls made, received or missed on the day the political aide was found dead could be retrieved from the handphones belonging to six Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) officers.
Six, that’s right, not one or two or three or even four, but all six phones! ... and on the very day Teoh perished mysteriously while in the MACC building where he was ordered by the MACC to report to.
Must be sun flares or a nuclear explosion somewhere which caused the electronic wipeout, or perhaps just one of those equally mysterious Malaysian coincidences.
An assistant analyst at the computer crime section of the Royal Malaysian Police forensic laboratory Inspector Mohd Zaidi Abu Hassan said the information that was available in the telephones were those made and received after July 22 2009.
… which was one week AFTER Teoh’s death. Halleujah, Alhamdulillah, Tien Kong be praised, at least the systems were back in order by then.
According to a Malaysiakini news report, police extracted a call by a female friend of a MACC officer which read a sweet innocuous conversation like:
“Why everyone is pointing finger against MACC? ...... Let it be, don't worry, sayang.”
Poor sayang, yalah no worries, it was suicide after all. Any Malaysian kid would have told you Teoh BH strangled himself (quite a common happening in Malaysia), on the eve of a wedding to a girl who was already carrying his future son. A tragedy no doubt but just another typical and not unusual "Malaysian" cause of death.
