As I commented in my last post, I am really very disappointed that the RCI to be set up would not look into the cause of death of the late Teoh Beng Hock.

The RCI that is to be constituted would not look into the cause of how TBH died, but rather the procedural aspects of MACC.

Anyone  would have thought that by looking into the cause of death of a witness ( not even a suspect, but just  a witness , mind you) in the custody of a law enforcement unit such as MACC, the RCI would have cover the procedural aspects of how that enforcement agency acts.

For a witness to die in the custody of a law enforcement, no stones must be left unturned to find out the cause of why and how he died, otherwise people would simply lose all faith in the system.

No one is above the law. So if there is any wrong doings  that had resulted or contributed in the death of a witness helping an investigation, then whoever  was involved in the wrongdoings must be found and made to face the  music.  This is the basic of rule of law and a country can only reach the rank of the advanced nations by practicing rule of law. Without this, there will never be accountability and credibility.

A RCI is an very powerful tool, if allowed to function independently and if its findings are made to be binding. If it is not allowed to find out the cause but just to overhaul the procedural aspects of MACC, then i think most Malaysians will be disappointed.

All these disappointments are going to cost the ruling coalition dearly in terms of urban support in the next GE.

    We are not only disappointed, but angry and mad at the ruling coalition. If it think it can get away with murder, then it had better think again.

    A promise being kept,that’s all to Najib.Who is resposible,why and how TBH died is immaterial to our PM.The RCI is another sandiwara,wool over the people’s eyes.At the end ,probably the culprit/s will get away scot free because it’s a politically motivated killing. GE is coming soon ,Najib will be fried if he didn’t set up the RCI.Now he’s buying time only.This RCI will drag on for another 1.5 to 2 years.

    I am also disappointed with Chua Soi Lek’s statement. It is not acceptable. Now, the question is what is Koh Tsu Koon going to say. Much the same as Chua Soi Lek? Does Gerakan has more concisience than Chua Soi Lek and MCA or does it have the same evil heart as them?

    I wonder if it was his son who got killed at MACC will our porn king, Chuah Sooi Leg say the same thing????? Chinese say “针刺不到肉是不知痛的” which literally means “No pain will be felt unless the needle pricks your flesh!”

    Bury MCA and the pron star president for good in the upcoming Tenang buy election.

    Dr Hsu,

    This call for an RCI, I am more convinced than ever; is just a waste of time, funds and other resources; if not a call in the wild. Najib’s call for one that does not address the real issue is just one more reason why I say this. The sincerity is plainly lacking and nothing more than a red herring to take a course that will deviate from the issue at hand.

    Without elaborating what is already well written and known about, what has the other earlier RCIs served? The VK Lingam case, the PDRM case. What purpose have they served, other than trying to pacify and keep the public hoping against hope for a period of time.

    I continue to wonder at the gullibility of Malaysians and their innate beliefs in the goodness of evil and placing their future and hopes on what is plainly untenable before them. How else do you explain it?

    It’s just like Toni Braxton saying the other day that she will pose for playboy magazine on the front cover but hold your breath…… fully clothed. What the heck. Najib is a fool if he thinks that he can hookwink the public.

    Dear klm

    Yet another reason to vote against the MCA and its candidates for political office in the next GE.

    And we will not be taken in by all the MCA rubbish about its standing up for Chinese rights (the cynical equivalent of UMNO playing their version of the race card).

    The setting up of RCI is just a political ploy trying to appease the rakyat and to fool the gullible voters. The government has no intention, whatsoever, to find the truth. What a big Yawn!

    Even if they find out the truth and the one responsible, he will not go to prison..only the name goes to prison. He will be having a nice time laughing at all of us.

    this is to be expected. imagine the political fallout if RCI affirms what we already know? Well, Najib and co will just hope that the shadows of TBH will fade with time. Yes, all Najib wants is to buy time. Malaysians are a forgetful lot. This has been proven time and time again. You think Najib does really care about TBH? He is just a number and will be forgotten once he has no more political implication.

    just an extension. Who plotter the Perak putsch using MACC as a tool? The same insiduous abuse of public institution was employed in the Selangor putsch attempt. Unfortunately, TBH was strong and some incompetent bumps just made a mess big time. You think the plotter will allow MACC to be hang dry in shame? No, coz MACC may be needed again for another putsch, no?

    I am surprise and disappointed that Gerakan has not make any statement. If it has conviction on justice fair play and left, it is time to make it know known now. Silence is that same as supporting the Najib and Chua Soi Lek’s line.

    My take is that Gerakan may still have the conviction but too scared to make it known.

    So much of disappointment and yet many still rooted in the BN component parties. Scolding the gang leader but still passionate to be a gang member. what logic is this ? Fight and change from within ? When the results proven time an again this is a fatal attempt, what you do next? As I comment before, it is status quo for CSL and KTK. why should they be bother for a death not belong to the ruling class. They is no racial politics but only class politics in Malaysia. All those who aspired to climb the ladder to the top of political parties are only concern of a place in the elite circle or RULING CLASS because that will ensure their status and privileged treatment in regards to rule of law and any other things. Layman like you and I better learn this fact early.

    For your info…something that we need to ponder deeply about. Are we secured in our food supply?

    The going is tough and the tough gets going. Also, the crooks get crooked and the crooked gets more crooked. The next battle. Rumors that territorial army is planned to be set up in every state to boost postal votes. The “floating voters” like a crisis squad can be shifted to where the votes are needed.

    If the MACC procedures are to be reviewed, shouldn’t that be part of an internal investigation instead of a tax-payer sponsored RCI ?

    If TBH’s death is not a homicide nor a suicide, then his death was either an accident or … he is still alive today!

    Assuming that it was an accident, what are the facts of the case that led to his evacuation from a small 14th floor window ? Was he smoking a cigaratte and decided to take a closer look at the window ? Fact is that he was not released from MACC custody as his personal items (cellphone,NRIC, etc) were still in possession of the MACC.

    BN is beyond redemption.

    What we need is a complete overhaul of our Federal Govt, and this can only best achieve at moment by getting Pakatan into power.

    If they did not perform, well, at least BN will have many years to reform themselves outside of power.

    Power corrupts absolutely!

    Everyone in MCA and Gelakan wants to be Chiang Kai Shek instead of MaoZedong. Why? Money ma… Mao only got power but no money whereas Chiang has a lot of MONEY and a little bit of power though only in a tiny island called Taiwan. Chiang is a hero 英雄 or traitor 汉奸 ? Nobody knows as he plays his card well. The majority only perceived Wang Jing Wei 汪精卫as 汉奸, but was it really so? MCA and Gelakan don’t care as they only want to act and portray as an “honorable” Chiang – one with lots of MONEY and a bit of power. Who cares where the money came from.

    Folks, don’t be disappointed with this out of topic comment as this show is currently screening in front of your naked eyes.
