MACC Mystery Death

Technorati tags: , , ,

Defective de facto Law Minister, image hosting by Photobucket Minister in the PM’s department, Nazri Abdul Aziz has said some pretty stupid things in the past. For those who don’t learn, history usually has a tendency to repeat itself.

Via Malaysiakini:

Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Mohd Nazri Abdul Aziz cautioned against pointing the finger at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) for Teo Beng Hock's death.

Okay, fair enough. But Teo was in the custody of MACC for questioning, so they do bear some responsibility. Especially since they only released him at the ungodly hour of 3:45 am. And then, Nazri gets insensitively stupid.

MACC's investigation division director Shukri Abdull had told reporters earlier that Teo was released at 3.45am but he continued to remain in the building.

Commenting on this, Nazri said: "I was informed by MACC earlier that he (Teo) was released yesterday (early this morning)."

"Then he should have gone home (instead)....and how would we know that he would jump out of the building?" the de facto law minister added.

The question Walski has for this fucktard Nazri: how the fuck did HE know Teo jumped
(once defective, always defective, in the full post)

Yes, this mystery is still under investigation. Yes, we shouldn’t speculate. And neither should Nazri. Being the defective de facto Law Minister does not give him immunity to speculate either.

But here are the irrefutable facts:

  • Teo was picked up by the MACC for questioning. This has been widely reported, and confirmed by the MACC themselves.
  • The MACC took statements from Teo, as reported by Malaysiakini, from between 5pm on Wednesday, until around 3:45am early Thursday morning.
  • Teo did not go home immediately and asked to be allowed to lie down until later in the morning (so close to his wedding? Strange, if you ask Walski).
  • The last time MACC say they saw Teo alive was at around 6am Thursday morning.
  • Teo’s body was found on the roof of an adjacent building at 1:30pm on Thursday.

Apart from that, we don't know anything else, other than the fact that Teo was supposed to have gotten married on Friday.

Now, again, Walski asks – more calmly this time – how the hell can Nazri say that Teo jumped? Does he know something we don’t?

Walski will not speculate any further, nor is he implying anything sinister on the part of the minister – apart from Nazri being an idiot for saying what he did. Not to mention being insensitive.

Now, Walski has to apologize for something that he is about to do. The following photograph, or others like it, has been published on several sites.

Walski knows that putting this up may be insensitive to the family of Teo Beng Hock. And for that he apologizes. However, he has edited the original photograph for reasons Walski hopes are obvious. He will be more than happy to take it off at a later time, if required. But for now, it is a photograph that everyone should remember.

This is the first death of someone while in MACC custody. Nevermind that Teo was only a witness. That’s irrelevant. And when an agency has somebody in their custody, the responsibility of that person’s safety lies with said agency.

That, and the veracity of MACC selectively investigating anything and anyone to do with Pakatan Rakyat is what a section of the public is pissed off about. It’s almost appearing like a witch hunt.

The Malaysian government will proudly advertise, on just about any public infrastructure project notice, that it is “another BN government project”. The MACC is a Malaysian government agency, directly under the purview of the Ministry of Home Affairs. Therefore, it is not an independent body, but a BN government agency. Let’s not forget that.

In the meantime, investigations into this very unfortunate incident is ongoing. Walski hopes that the investigation will be carried out without any stone unturned, no matter whom or what they may find underneath.

Walski would also like to extend his deepest condolences to the family and friends of the late Teo Beng Hock. Untimely deaths like this are tragic, especially when surrounded with many unknowns and political undertones. Without a doubt, this is a sad day for all concerned Malaysians. Apart from, it would seem, pro-BN bloggers who seem to be silent about this tragic incident.

With the number of deaths in police custody, and now the MACC, is there anybody that we can trust with our safety anymore?
