The inquest into the death of Teoh Beng Hock (the former aide to Ean Yong Hian Wah, the state executive councillor of Selangor, following an investigation into alleged misuse of Selangor government allocations ) has come to a close and the verdict is an open one.
That is to say the coroner had found that the death was not suicide nor was it homicide but that Teoh Beng Hock had some prefall injuries and there were no evidence one way or another to conclude that the death was either suicide or homicide.
Honestly, the verdict is no more than what we jaded Malaysians have come to expect.
But of course the family of Teoh Beng Hock are not happy and they are seeking for a revision of the verdict and calling for a royal commission of inquiry into the cause of his death.
So poor Mr Teoh Beng Hock had prefall injuries after giving his statement to the Selangor branch of the MACC office on the 14th Floor of the Plaza Massalam, Shah Alam.
Then, what happened?
Then we found him dead from an alleged fall from the 5th Floor of Plaza Massalam, which was neither suicide nor homicide.
This looks like a case for Mr Mulder of the X-Files series himself!
Of course, we Malaysians and the family of the late Teoh Beng Hock would like some answers.
