Before 16th July 2009, most Malaysian would not have know this chap, but his tragic death on that date has now made him the symbol of a political struggle between BN and Pakatan.
BN's continued harassment of Pakatan via Agencies like PDRM and MACC; is an open secret. BN is so blatant about it that suspicious matters like VK Lingam's wheeling & dealing in POJ; and Khir Toyo's Disney trip & Bali House are never investigated by MACC, and even if investigated, gets the usual NFA reaction; but a mere suspicion of a Cow-case, warrant investigation by MACC.
Now a poor chap, merely doing his job is found dead at MACC building at Shah Alam. Of course, one must not pre-judge MACC and immediately blame them for Teoh's death; but MACC still stand responsible to the people of Malaysia to explain the investigation and methods of investigation they used when interrogating Teoh for almost 10 hours on 15th July 2009.
How he is found sprawled on the roof of another shorter part of the MACC building in Shah Alam will remain a mystery. Of course, Nazri has already made silly remakrs like 'let police investigate', & 'dont make assumption'; BUT at the same time can subtly say 'of Why Teoh jump, I dont know'. Come on lah Minister - how can you even assume he jumped? And what more after telling Malaysian not to pre-judge, you go make that kind of statement.
At the end of the day, MACC and BN can say what they want to either cover up the matter or try to explain it away; but the bottom line is - One Man has died. And whether MACC likes it or not, Teohs' unfortunate demise will always be linked with MACC.
My deepest condolence to the family and fiancee of Teoh Beng Hock.
