Malaysians are angry. Another man under graft investigations by MACC (Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission) has died in mysterious circumstances.
This time it involved a senior customs officer, assistant director of the Selangor Customs department Ahmad Sarbani Mohamed. He had allegedly gone to the K.L MACC Jalan Cochrane branch on 6/4/2011 to see the investigation officer.
Per the statement from the MACC, the investigation officer was not in when Ahmad Sarbani went to the Jalan Cochrane MACC office at about 8.26 a.m. When the investigation officer returned to the office, they could not find Ahmad Sarbani. At between 10.15 a.m -10.20 a.m a search found Sarbani sprawled in a pool of blood on the badminton court on the ground floor of the building. It is believed that he had fallen or committed suicide from the 3rd Floor of the MACC building.
But the deceased's friends and family do not buy the story of possible suicide. According to a close friend of the deceased Riduan Mohamed, the deceased had told him the day before he died, that he was being investigated by MACC and would be going to the MACC office the following day (6/April) to hand over a document. The deceased had also told his childhood friend that he was innocent and was not afraid. Friends Believe Impossible For Sarbani To Commit Suicide
The earlier death involved Teoh Beng Hock, the former aide to Selangor executive councillor Ean Yong Hian Wah. Teoh Beng Hock was alleged to have fallen or committed suicide from the 14th Floor of the Selangor MACC office in Plaza Masalam in Shah Alam. His body was found sprawled on the 5th Floor corridor of the building.
A coroner's court inquiry into Teoh Beng Hock's death turned out to be inconclusive. It found that Teoh's death was neither a suicide nor a homicide. A Case For Mr Mulder Himself?
A Royal Commission of Inquiry is currently investigating into the circumstances of Teoh's death.
Malaysians generally also find it difficult to believe in the suicide theories. For one, Malay people generally do not commit suicide since it is against their religion. And in Teoh's case, although he was alleged to have committed suicide or fallen from the 14th Floor of Plaza Masalam onto the 5th Floor corridor of the building, there was no blood unlike in the custom officer's case!
Something is fishy somewhere.
