"New" Malaysia's "New" IGP, "New" AG, "New" PM & "New" Kerbau?

Under the so-called "New" Malaysian government, the police continues to, what we cynical citizens would say, "act dunno", a colloquialism that equates to "buat ta'tahu" or to be more truthful and blunt, "berpura-pura".

In the case of re-investigating the 'kidnapped' disappearance of Pastor Raymond Koh, Koh's wife Susanna Liew was recently shocked when she learned that the police is re-investigating Lam Chang Nam, someone the police previously said was not involved in Pastor Koh’s abduction.

Obviously the so-called re-investigation was wasting time on a person which the police themselves have already cleared. There seems to be a reluctance and deliberate avoidance to truly investigate the disappearances of pastor Koh and Amri Che Mat.

In another case, that of re-investigating the murder of Teoh Beng Hock, the late DAP man, his poor family were equally shocked to discover the re-investigation has been about the 'wrongful confinement' of Teoh (under section 342 of Penal Code) rather than his murder (section 304 of Penal Code) - see my earlier post The Kotor-ness in the investigation into Teoh beng Hock's death.

Again, there seems to be a reluctance and deliberate avoidance to truly investigate the murder of Teoh Beng Hock.

In the latest (3rd case) police so-called investigation into the bona fides of the gay sex video clips, the police instead went after the alleged people behind clips and their circulation, as if in obedience to Azmin Ali's accusation that there has been a conspiracy to frame him.

This prompted Dep Minister Shamsul Iskandar, who is also PKR Information Chief, to train his guns on police investigations into the matter. He said (echoing Anwar Ibrahim):

“The authorities should focus on the main case (authenticity of the video) instead of appearing to believe the allegation of a political plot to topple a certain individual.”

"Police must not be seen as protecting someone powerful."

In his statement to Malaysiakini, Shamsul claimed that people have become suspicious with the police focusing on the circulation of the sex video instead of whether it is authentic.

He stated: “This (suspicion) should be a reminder that the people still doubt the independence of enforcement agencies despite the change of government more than a year ago.“This doubt (in enforcement agencies) will become worse when the authorities are perceived or suspected of conducting investigations with the aim of protecting a powerful individual.”

And you know what? Straightaway, Khairuddin Abu Bakar, a clown who is overtly and overwhelmingly pro Mahathir leapt forth to say (words to the effect):

"The authorities should reopen their probe and comprehensively investigate the videos as Malaysia is interested to find the authenticity of the recordings implicating Anwar."

“God willing, I will compile all these lewd videos that were circulated on social media once upon a time before, and I will make an official report to the law enforcement agencies immediately."

“The process of the law must be fair and consistent. Anyone at all involved in the production of fake lewd videos must have stern legal action taken against them.”

He was referring to a video which allegedly was about Anwar Ibrahim in a tryst with a Thai or Chinese woman some years back.

if with a woman is it as bad as with a man?


Khairuddin Abu Bakar has obviously threatened Anwar in kind for the latter's remarks about police not authenticating the bona fides of the alleged Azmin-Haziq gay sex videos but rather in pursuit of an alleged conspiracy behind the videos, as alleged by Azmin Ali.

Wow, an ultra pro Mahathir devotee, the putra-belit-ism of the police investigation and a threat against Anwar Ibrahim.

Yes, under the so-called "New" Malaysia and a "New" IGP, the police in 3 separate cases have deliberately chosen incorrect or unwanted re-investigations in contradictions of what the Courts have directed and the public expected.

As Asia Sentinel in an article said of the Police Special Branch, to wit (relevant extracts):

Mahathir as Prime Minister has always been close to the Special Branch. In 1987 he cracked down on his critics in what was known as Operation Lalang, rounding up more than 100 politicians, social activists, academics, students, artists, and people seen as being critical of the government.

The prime minister’s hold over the unit is just as strong today with his staunch ally Abdul Hamid Bador, the newly appointed IGP. Mahathir in support of the SB was dismissive of Suhakam’s findings about the abduction of Pastor Koh. [...]

Rather than use sodomy to destroy an adversary of Mahathir, ironically the SB is now using misinformation dissemination, aka ‘deepfake’ to protect a Mahathir ally.

Fuck, and I haven't even come to the latest on the Seafield Inquest, where AG Tommy Thomas may find himself in a committal proceedings for contempt.

"New" Malaysia? "New" IGP? "New" AG?

But most of all, "New" PM?


  1. Since you want to link the issues to the current PM, AG, IGP etc.

    Why is the incumbent PM, AG, IGP at the time of the incidents not held accountable ?

    a) Amri and Pastor Koh's disappearance.
    b) Teoh Beng Hock's murder.

    In fact there is very good reason to suspect the incumbents at the time stonewalled and obstructed any attempt at a free and proper investigation into the cases.

    Why no questions raised about those responsible at the time ?
    Why ?

    1. The usual reason why no questions raised ! Dedak sudah sumbat dalam his gap, ha ha ha ha.

  2. Wakakakakkakaka

    Nothing of substance to cheer about it this article since it is just purely an attempt to create a Trust Deficit towards PH for the purpose of politiking in your concluding statements.

    It's just too blatant an attempt and a lousy job to disguise it under the cause of seeking justice, good governance and empathy for victims.


  3. Toldja...just because the Court of Appeal OPINES that there is some evidence of murder doesn't mean AGC can start murder investigations. They have to FOLLOW THE PROCESS. Start with wrongful confinement, that is easy to prove, after that determine if excessive methods or force were used in the interrogation of TBH, then if so, determine if this caused him to commit suicide or his murder.

    But I fear the CODE OF SILENCE amongst the MACC officers means nobody will squeal on each other, meaning no witnesses meaning poor TBH's family will be left wanting, like Altantuya's family.

    AGC: Insufficient evidence to investigate Teoh Beng Hock’s death for murder

    Published on 17 July 2019


    KUALA LUMPUR, July 17 — The Attorney General’s Chambers (AGC) has clarified today that there is insufficient evidence to investigate the death of Teoh Beng Hock for murder.

    The AGC in a letter to Teoh’s family legal representative Ramkarpal Singh dated July 8 this year, stated that there is not enough evidence to reopen the case under Section 302 of the Penal Code, which handles murder.

    “The instruction from the Chambers to the Police to open an Investigation Paper classified under Section 342 of the Penal Code is merely an administrative procedure.

    “This decision was necessary because despite numerous rounds of scrutiny by officers in Chambers, most recently in March 2019, of the evidence collected from investigation into possible homicide following the Court of Appeal’s finding, the present state of evidence is insufficient to proffer a charge under Section 304 or 304A of the Penal Code.

    “This recent classification does not however in any way prevent investigators from looking into the truth or as to who were involved in his death,’’ said the letter signed by Attorney General (AG) Tommy Thomas.

    This comes as Putrajaya decided to re-open the investigation into the death of political aide Teoh under Section 342 of the Penal Code, which handles unlawful confinement.

    The letter further stated that the investigation under Section 342 is consistent with the Court of Appeal’s finding of fact that Teoh was not free to leave the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) building where he was found dead, although he was never placed under arrest.

    In response, Ramkarpal said he disagrees with the findings and urge the AG to relook into the case.

    “We take a very different view, we feel there is sufficient evidence for homicide. We know the identities of the officers concerned. Their identities are known, now the question of the involvement and the roles that they have.

    “To say insufficient evidence, I don’t think it is acceptable. We urge the AG to scrutinise the evidence before him,’’ he said.

    Ramkarpal said he has sought an appointment with the AG sometime this week to seek further clarification.

    A royal commission of inquiry concluded that Teoh was driven to suicide by the aggressive interrogation methods used by MACC officers. It also blamed three officers for their aggressive methods which it said had violated procedures.
