The half-past six lawyer finally succumbed to brilliant questioning by Malik Imtiaz Sawar, who has been acting for the Selangor State government.
While not yet facts, the 180-degree about-turn revelations by the piffling pathetic pathologist have presented the following possibilities, in fact far more probable than his earlier bull about Teoh’s suicide:
(a) Teoh might still have been alive after his body hit the floor as his hands were found clenched in a fist, as this last breath gesture most likely indicated that poor Teoh had attempted to grab on to or reach for something to hold onto when falling or, alternatively, were clenched to endure the pain he probably felt when he landed.
It’s just f* horrible - those MACC bastards!
(b) The piffling pathetic pathologist admitted it was possible that Teoh's fractured skull could have been the result of severe hitting even before he had fallen (or was thrown out), mind you, not that he willingly provided this information ...
... ‘twas only after Malik asserted through a reconstructed scenario, that if Teoh had fallen, he would not have suffered head injuries.
(c) Malik challenged the pathologist’s half-past six speculation (that’s what the f*-er had been doing) that the unknown DNA found on Teoh's waist belt and at the back of his blazer were results of contamination.
The cross-examination went like this:
Malik: So are you saying the Klang hospital contaminates exhibits?
Khairul: I will have to admit that.
Malik: I am wondering why are steps being taken to undermine the DNA evidence?
Khairul: There is a possibility of contamination.
Mailk: Do you know for a fact it was contaminated, you don't know, do you?
Khairul: I don't know.
(e) Malik also said that there could possibly be ‘penetration’ of Teoh’s anus area, but he mentioned it was very hard to confirm that as the injuries around there were very extreme.
Nonethless Malik said we couldn’t discount the possibility that there might have been penetration - WTF!
Additionally he stated that indications of abrasions on Teoh's buttocks could have been caused by a thin wooden instrument, but again, due to the horrendous damage there, could not pin-point what instrument had been used.
(f) Malik also put forward a hypothesis; that Teoh was surrounded by individuals - a form of oppressive bullying intimidation tactic - before he fell. And when he fell someone could have grabbed his hand and snapped his wristwatch as the watch is yet to be found.
The pathologist grudgingly agreed to that possibility.
(g) Then again, subjected to good cross-examination, the pathologist admitted there is a possibility that the injuries on Teoh's face could have been caused by beating.
Oh, those MACC mother f*-ers!
(h) It was also possible that Teoh had horribly perished much earlier than had been officially presented.
(i) Malik rounded up by lambasting the pathologist for assuming that there were no injuries before the fall and worse, that half-past six bloke had earlier speculated that Teoh committed suicide when there was no such evidence.
Much as the authorities have been spinning a conspiracy theory that Teoh had wanted to ‘squeal’ on his DAP boss (part of the current UMNO demon-isation campaign against the DAP), and that if Teoh didn’t commit suicide, he was ‘killed’ by DAP thugs, whatever little evidence exist (thanks to the no-effort by both the police and pathologist) they were enough to ring alarm bells that something horrible, very very horrible had happened to Teoh Beng Hock.
But these revelations are enough to send a chill through our bodies, that in Malaysia, such Evil with a capital ‘E’ exists in the very agencies that are supposed to protect us.
Is there no limit to their iniquities?
