SPRM : Teoh pergi dalam keadaan 'tenang'

MACC: No conspiracy behind Teoh's death

(NST) KUALA LUMPUR: Teoh Beng Hock is "worth more to us alive than dead", according to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission as he was a key witness in an ongoing case.

A senior MACC official said this was because the 30-year-old political aide to Selangor executive councillor Ean Yong Hian Wah had not been detained or arrested as he was a crucial witness in the probe which had just opened.

"He was considered a crucial witness and was assisting the MACC in sorting out files and documents which had been taken from his office."

He said it was absurd to allege a conspiracy behind Teoh's death.

"First and foremost. Teoh was a witness, not a suspect."

Teoh is believed to be a key witness in MACC's investigations into 12 Selangor Pakatan Rakyat assemblymen over alleged misuse of their allocations.

"As a witness, he could either produce important evidence or testify in court. Hence, he was worth more alive to the MACC than dead."

Teoh was among four called to the Selangor MACC office to assist in investigations.

The official dismissed allegations of the MACC putting Teoh under pressure because he had driven all the way to the Selangor MACC headquarters in Plaza Masalam in Shah Alam.

"Teoh was not arrested or picked up by MACC officers. He was treated as a witness, not a detainee and as such did not require any escorts nor was he handcuffed."

The official added that the circumstances would have been different if Teoh was a suspect as he would not have been left alone.

He said MACC officers would have accompanied him and that he would have been handcuffed.

On reasons for Teoh's death, the official declined to comment, saying investigations were best left to the police.

"The MACC will be cooperating fully with the police as they investigate Teoh's death. Everything will be transparent and above board."

Teoh's death on Thursday sparked an outcry with several quarters calling for a full-scale investigation, including the setting up of a royal commission of inquiry.


Bodoh, memang bodoh. (Bodoh kat siapa? Pikirla sendiri)

Terbunuhnya Teoh Beng Hock, dengan sendiri menjadikannya 'mati syahid' dari sisi pandangan orang ramai.

Secara tak langsung juga, dia tidak akan 'mati'. Dia telah di'immortalize'kan oleh orang ramai; kisah misteri dan kematian Teoh akan menjadi buah mulut orang ramai untuk satu jangka masa yang panjang.

*Bunuh diri, terjatuh, atau pun dibunuh, semua saya tak lihat sangat. Yang pelik kenapa dia terbunuh di dalam kawasan bangunan MACC. Misteri. Only Allah knows.
