PR MPs will remind Najib in March Parliament to honour his solemn undertaking to leave “no stone unturned” to find out the truth about Beng Hock’s death or face the censure of voters

For more than 30 months since his murder at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) headquarters at Shah Alam on July 16, 2009, justice have been denied to Teoh Beng Hock.

Despite an inquest, an exhumation, a Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) and solemn undertaking by the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to Teoh Beng Hock’s family that “no stone would be left unturned”, the full frightening story of the causes and circumstances for Beng Hock’s murder at MACC Headquarters have still to be told and full justice given to Beng Hock and family.

The Coroner Muntapha Abas in Beng Hock’s inquest had ruled out suicide but had returned an open verdict as there was insufficient evidence to prove that his death was a homicide.

The James Foong RCI came out with a finding overturning the verdict of the Inquest ruling out suicide – concluding that Beng Hock was “driven to commit suicide by the aggressive, relentless, oppressive and unscrupulous interrogation”.

This is most unacceptable finding as it was not based on any evidence but completely a leap in speculation by the RCI.

Although no sufficient evidence was adduced at the RCI to establish Beng Hock’s killers, it was clearly established at the RCI that there was a conspiracy of “blue wall of silence” among the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) officers to “cover up” what actually transpired at the MACC resulting in Beng Hock’s death, with the RCI publicly condemning the MACC Selangor officers except for two “brave” witnesses as a pack of liars who blatantly told lies and perjured at the RCI.

Since the publication of the RCI report in July last year, Najib had washed his hands and cleanly forgotten his solemn undertaking to Beng Hock’s family to “leave no stone unturned” to find out the real causes of Beng Hock’s death – in other words, to hunt down Beng Hock’s killers!

After the publication of the RCI report, Najib said he left the decision of penalising the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) trio named by the RCI to the MACC, the police and the Attorney-General.

There have been no action whatsoever on the part of the police and the Attorney-General while what happened in the MACC has been an even greater charade – with no news in the past six months about the outcome of MACC internal probe against the three MACC officers implicated with Beng Hock’s death.

Former Court of Appeal judge N.H. Chan in his article “Who killed Teoh Beng Hock” after the RCI report said the implicated MACC officers should not only be charged under Sections 304 (culpable homicide) and 304A (causing death by negligence) of the Penal Code, but even murder under Section 302.

Why has there been inaction whether by the police, the Attorney-General or MACC.

Najib cannot pass the buck of responsibility of fulfilling his “leave no stone unturned” pledge to Beng Hock’s family to a third party.

Pakatan Rakyat MPs will remind Najib in the March Parliament that he has failed to honour his solemn undertaking to leave “no stone unturned” to find out the truth about Beng Hock’s death and demand that he keep to his pledge to Beng Hock’s family or face censure by the electorate in the forthcoming general elections.

Tomorrow the Court of Appeal will sit in Putrajaya at 9 am to decide on the application for leave for appeal against the High Court decision in December rejecting a judicial review of the open verdict of the inquest into Beng Hock’s death.

Will there be justice for Beng Hock tomorrow?

    Can’t believe we are still talking demanding Najib to fufill his promise? Seriously – is there any point? When prodigal children at back against the wall, the best they do is NOTHING, if not they will just sink lower in their behaviour.. There is NO point talking to him – might as well talk to a wooden head.

    Only way TBH with get ANY redemption if its even possible now is when UMNO/BN is out of power..

    Where there is no will, there is no way. It is impossible to turn over the stones as there are huge boulders and rocks on top of them. We need an excavator like a GE.

    March might be too late. Rumours of dissolution sometime before mid-February for GE in March.

    I think Teoh’s family ….and their lawyers are prepared and what to do or say…be it good news or bad…news verdict for Teoh Beng Hock.
    Najib speaks with powerful and excellent English….and his “no stone unturned” or “around the corner” or totally unreliable statements.
    Tomorrow verdict is all about getting more votes for him.
    Good news for Teoh family…which mean few MACC heads will roll…how many voters will run away or swing back voters to support him…is what the verdict is all about.
    I sincerely hope the Teoh family will forgive me…for saying this…but to me…TBH is now an item to win or loose votes,… more a person to these UMNO b .. rouges and thieves.

    Najib promised Teoh’s family that the case will be solved within one month .
    Now is 2 years.
    I guess he is too weak to turn the stones and exposes. OK la…but as PM…promise one month ….also broken.
    What kind of a PM is that?

    Former dean of UiTM’s Sports Science and Recreation Faculty was FOUND GUILTY of falsely acknowledging an invoice for a unit of PHANTOM equipment costing RM138K.

    LOL, Y only him? We r certain dis is a COMMON n WIDESPREAD CORRUPT PRACTICE in universities, gomen depts n agencies
    A person in-charge of ordering n purchase COLLUDES with a salesperson/distributor 2 supply NOTHING after issuing invoices, receiving delivery orders, n making payments; d 2 parties SHARE d loots (easy $$$, esp when consumables r ordered)
    There r other TRICKS too – like some1 ordered a series of consumable items (say toner cartridges 4 printers) but at the end got an iPad or iPhone or cash fr d supplier
    Malaysians, esp those who work in universities, gomen depts n agencies, r VERY creative n smart 1 mah – follow UmnoB/BN LEADERS lor, leadership by example what, ah CHEAT kor shows d WAY
    No believe? Ask lah any salesperson/distributor who dealt with crooks (from ikan bilis 2 big sharks n whales) in universities, gomen depts n agencies

    Easy 2 find out – just hire a team of unemployed graduates 2 dig through the files n 2 check d items on sites; incentive: pay them a certain % of corrupt $$$ recovered fr d thieves (it should work unless d thieves counter offer d unemployed graduates MORE $$$ 2 entice them 2 cross over 2 d DARK SIDE)

    If Najib can be assured to get 10,000 votes away from PR…Teoh’s murderers will be caught…speed lighting court case…found guilty and hanged…no problem.
    Dictators do that everywhere…the families are guaranteed to be well off and well educated children. The negotiations done in closed doors…with the chosen stool pigeons to die or jailed for life..
