An independent Inquiry into the death at the Selangor MACC
DAP National Deputy Chairman and MP for Kepong Dr Tan Seng Giaw calls on the Federal Government to carry out a truly independent inquiry into the death of Teoh Beng Hock at the Selangor Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) in Shah Alam on 16.7.2009.
Dr Tan comments on the death of Teoh who was a political assistant for the DAP Seri Kembangan state assemblyperson Ean Yong Hian Wah. He was questioned as a witness.
MACC must be fair, just and impartial. It must fight corruption in the country effectively.
Apparently, at 5 pm on 15.7.2009, Teoh was called to the MACC and discharged at 3.45 am on 16.7.2009. The state MACC is at levels 14 & 15 of the Plaza Masalam complex.
Teoh's body was discovered at the bottom of the office building about 1.30 pm on 16.7.2009.
We need a truly independent inquiry into the tragedy which is a mystery.
Dr Tan Seng Giaw
