TBH case: It's suicide, NOT murder!

The Royal Commission of Inquiry has concluded that Teoh Beng Hock committed suicide, a finding for his family, friends and sympathisers to contest. However, they were the ones who asked the government to set up the RCI after casting doubt over the impartiality of the court.

And what's next? Another RCI or a tribunal ? An international tribunal, perhaps, until their claim that TBH was murdered is substantiated?

Doubts remain as doubts. Minister at PM Office Nazri Aziz said the three MACC officers who were in-charge of interrogating TBH will be fully-investigated. Why? They are now accused of applying 'grilling tactis' on the victim (here).

So, could it be depression prompted TBH to jump off from the building when he just couldn't take it anymore?

“We will not delay to act against the officers but we also cannot `hang' them straightaway. Proper procedure will have to take place and it starts with investigating the incident and collecting evidence.

“Investigation papers must be opened and be submitted to the Attorney-General's Chambers for further action. That is the procedure and procedures need to be followed,” Nazri said.

The RCI in an unanimous decision, had found that Teoh had been driven to commit suicide by “aggressive, relentless, oppressive and unscrupulous” interrogation by three MACC officers. The three named were Selangor MACC deputy director Hishamuddin Hashim, and his officers Mohamad Anuar Ismail and Ashraf Mohd Yunus.

The 30-year-old political secretary to Ean Yong Hian Wah was found dead on July 16, 2009 on the fifth floor corridor of Plaza Masalam, Shah Alam, Selangor, after giving a statement at the Selangor MACC office on the 14th floor of the same building.

Of course the RCI's decision should be respected and accepted but for TBH family, it will never end. To them, TBH was murdered and Nazri's statement was adding some 'points' to them. Was TBH tortured or psycho-ed during investigation? Only TBH and God know the answer.

And what would become of the three officers if they are found guilty of using irrelevant methods in conducting the investigation? Jail? I think even a jail sentence would not suffice to TBH family and friends. Unless its going to be a death sentence!

So, the findings by the RCI will still carry no face value to many, especially the Opposition politicians who have been riding on the issue over the last two years for their extra mileage. What's next?

Even the judge was in doubt given the fact that the trio wasn't opening up to reveal more just to save their own skin.

Too much cover up by MACC in order to save the skin of their own man makes the verdict unreasonable. Why such an intense interrogation on a witness? After all the sum involved is only RM2400. If it is half a billion like the Scorpene deal, it is much more reasonable for them to do such an intense interrogation.

everybody, including TBH's family must respect the decision and findings by the RCI.

when they asked for the setting up of the RCI, the govt did just that.

let TBH rest in peace, and may the Lord bless his soul

is the case closed for good?

i dont think so.

his family will go on cling to their belief that beng hock was killed, and will find another avenue to sustain their claim that he was murdered by the macc officials.

its a decision to be reckoned with. tbh is dead and the rci has confirmed that he committed suicide. we are sorry for the family but life has to go on. whether they are satisfied with the finding or not, they have to respect the decision, no matter how bitter is it to swallow.

teka-teki said...

arahan supaya tiga pegawai sprm tu disiasat menunjukkan masih wujud keraguan mengenai laporan suruhanjaya penyiasat diraja.

sudah tentulah keluarga tbh tidak akan puas hati dengan hasil siasatan, apatah lagi tiga pegawai sprm terbabit dipercayai menggunakan cara tidak wajar ketika menyoal siasat beng hock.

banyak kemungkinan masih belum terjawab di sini...

NOT FAIR!

NOT FAIR AT ALL!

kulo said...

the RCI reports are based on theories and theories cannot support any final decision!

kita amat simpati dengan keluarga tbh tetapi apa lagi yang mampu dibuat untuk mencari keadilan?

jika inilah keputusan lembaga penyiasat, maka ia perlu dihormati dan sudah tiba masanya semua pihak berhenti mempolitikkannya.

kalaupun diwujudkan tribunal lain dan keputusannya tetap sama, tidak ada gunanya ia disebut lagi
