The Kotor-ness in the investigation into Teoh beng Hock's death

Malaysiakini - Beng Hock probe - police only following orders, says DIGP (extracts):

he gave the orders

Police said today they are just following orders from the Attorney-General's Chambers on re-investigating Teoh Beng Hock's death under Section 342 of the Penal Code, which deals with wrongful confinement.

Asked to comment on the reclassification of the police investigation, Deputy Inspector-General of Police Mazlan Mansor said police couldn't comment further as to why the re-investigation was not being carried out under Section 304, which covers culpable homicide.

"I can't comment on what the prosecutor's side has decided. We are conducting our investigation based on what has been decided by them," Mazlan (below) told the media in Kuala Lumpur.

Yesterday, Teoh Beng Hock Trust For Democracy chairperson Ng Geok Chee revealed that police have reopened their investigation into the political aide's death under Section 342. A new probe into Teoh's controversial death was one of Pakatan Harapan's pledges in its GE14 manifesto.

Ng had said a probe under Section 342 would go against the findings of the Court of Appeal in 2014, which ruled that one or more unknown persons, including MACC officers, had caused the death of Teoh when he was in their custody.

"This is in stark contrast to the recommendations of the Teoh Beng Hock Trust for Democracy and Malaysian Bar that the MACC officers involved should be prosecuted under Section 304 (of the Penal Code) for culpable homicide and that upon conviction, the perpetrators will serve a jail term of up to 30 years and a fine.

"The police should investigate whether the MACC officers caused the death of Teoh, rather than avoid it and only investigate the procedural responsibility of the MACC officers," Ng said.

Firstly, it's true the police follows the direction of the AGC, Tommy Thomas' Chambers.

In 2014, the Court of Appeal ruled that one or more unknown persons, including MACC officers, had caused the death of Teoh Beng Hock (TBH) when he was in their custody.

Whoever was involved in TBH's death, even and especially if it included MACC officer(s), is/are to be investigated, charged and prosecuted under Section 304 (of the Penal Code) for culpable homicide.

Instead, today we see the AGC instructing police to investigate the TBH's saga under Section 342 (and NOT Section 304) of the Penal Code, which deals with wrongful confinement (and not culpable homicide).

Whoa, ini sangat kotor lah - obviously a deceitful means to avoid probing into the murder of TBH.

Even Muhyiddin (Home Affairs Minister) has washed his hands from the affair a la Pontius Pilate by saying (as reported in FMT) We’ve exhausted all legal processes in Beng Hock case, so the Ministry has passed the matter to the AGC to resolve.

And most deafening of all has been the eff-ing silence from Lim Kit Siang who seemingly has abandoned TBH to his fate.

On 06 August 2015, DAP leader Lim Kit Siang shook hands with Rohaizad Yaakob, a top Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) official to show the opposition’s solidarity with the MACC

Yet just a year earlier Kit Siang in his article, titled "Malaysians will not rest until justice is done for the killing of Teoh Beng Hock" said DAP and Pakatan Rakyat would continue to highlight the injustice of Teoh Beng Hock’s unresolved murder

what utter bullshit

Tell me, who has "instructed" the AGC to main kotor and deceitfully change the section of the Penal Code in  probing the TBH tragedy? 



    Latheefa was the right person to be MACC Chief but her appointment did not follow the PROCESS. Don’t make that mistake again.
    The end does not justify the means.

    Before starting TBH investigation we already jump to the conclusion and assume a murder has taken place.

    To prove someone committed murder you must follow due PROCESS.

    We must not take short-cut and say since the Court of Appeal say there is “some evidence of murder” then that it is enough for conviction. Murder conviction takes a lot of irrefutable evidence: smoking gun, fingerprints on his throat, witnesses etc. A mandatory death penalty awaits. That is the justice we demand for TBH right? Or is it just 20 years of food and lodging at taxpayer’s expense?

    We don’t want the murderer to escape on a technicality that justice took a convenient short cut.

    We all know Jibby took 1MDB money but we charge him for the lesser SRC first, easier to prove, then as more evidence is collected we move on to 1MDB.

    Start the investigation for wrongful detention (easy to prove) then collect more evidence along the way to prove use of excessive force, torture then finally murder.


    1. We are now all frothing in the mouth and baying for blood.... MURDER MURDER MURDER. who do we charge?


      Everyone on that night shift at the MACC office? All the interrogating officers? Based on what evidence?

      Nobody working on that night shift is willing to talk.
      Did someone confess or snitch on his buddy? No.
      Do we have fingerprints on TBH's neck and body? No.
      Do we have witnesses that someone pushed him out the window? No.
      Do we have CCTV recording of the murder? No.
      If nobody is willing to talk then what evidence do we have?

      But we do have evidence of long unprofessional interrogation methods employed by the MACC let's start with that....someone may crack.....

    2. AGC cannot simply charge someone for murder if there is no witness to the act, no solid forensic evidence (fingerprint, DNA on the body or weapon etc), no testimony, affidavit etc.

      They have to start investigations from square wrongful detention.

    3. what charge - it's just police investigation under section 304 of the Penal Code as recommended by the High Court, but the AGC directed police to perform investigation under section 342 which is just for wrong confinement and NOT homicide - so why the deceptive diversion away from investigating for homicide?

    4. The very definition of "apologist". Ketuanan Melayu is safe under the protection of Cina Baru.

    5. All jumping to conclusion just bcoz u want to blame what u r targeting to hate.

      Is Tommy the one that actually given the order to direct police to perform investigation under section 342 which is just for wrong confinement and NOT homicide?

      He might be the AG but he can't cover every cases under his care. His biggest catch NOW is to mail jibby.

      The unfortunate thing is there r moles, lil' napoleons & tricksters plying their trades for their individual servitudes within his dept. Exactly as been spoken by mamak that he couldn't trust no one for critical appointments & issues!

      The rot IS indeed too deep!

  2. Looks like Tommy is worse than Apandi.

    Apandi was real bad, but he didn't even bother to pretend to be good.

  3. Cina kena tipu
    Ingat zaman baru
    Heboh sini sana
    Akhirnya pun sama
    Mamak gelak ketawa
    Anwar habuk pun takde
    Mamak belum mati
    Kor Ming sakit hati

  4. Q. Tell me, who has "instructed" the AGC to main kotor and deceitfully change the section of the Penal Code in probing the TBH tragedy?

    Answer. I don't think the AG even knows. It is all the work of Deep State operatives just like the Suhakam case of missing persons.

    It's time to launch another Ops Lallang to remove suspected Deep State players before the PH Govt. can govern and do the necessary reforms besides seeking justice for victims of The Deep State.

  5. No witnesses, no confession, no solid forensic evidence etc etc. Little hope for poor TBH.

    Amongst the law enforcement community like polis, MACC, prison guards etc there is a Code stronger than “Serve King and Country”. That unwritten code is:


    If you squeal a worse fate awaits you in prison or even if you don’t go to prison.

    Let’s face it, poor TBH, the only way he and his family will get justice is if someone in MACC squeals, but the reality is if you haven’t squealed all these years you are not likely to get a sudden rush of guilt and squeal now.

    Just like the Altantuya case where neither of the two policemen squealed. The best Altantuya’s family can hope for is a monetary compensation for death while under custody. And that is what they are seeking.

    The same best case, I’m afraid, awaits in the TBH case. Even that outcome is doubtful.

  6. Eh....
