I am not a lawyer nor am I well-versed in how the Law, okay Malaysian law, operates but I know this inquest is going to be headed by a magistrate and we ALL know how LOW in the scheme of things a magistrate is, don't we? If many Malaysians don't even trust findings by judges of the High Court, Supreme Court and Federal Court how are they going to take this magistrate-level charade?
Since the tragic event of Teoh Beng Hock's death Malaysians have clamoured for a Royal Commission of Inquiry. We all think that only a Royal Commission has the clout and the transparency to conduct an inquiry into the case.
So now we are going to get both an inquest and a Royal Commission of Inquiry. The question I want to ask now is who does the spin for dear old Najib? Bad job, right? It's almost like a badly written comedy skit.
Okay, okay they want a Royal Commission let's give them one. But we make sure this Royal Commission is only to study the interrogation methods used by the MACC. In other words it is a Royal Commission of Inquiry into the investigative methods of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC). So if they find something...... like maybe we should not 'investigate' past 2 a.m. or allow outsiders to sleep in our pantry... then they can recommend that MACC amend this and that and the other lor. No problem what. And if we say things fast enough the Rakyat won't notice one la. Just make sure we emphasise the words, ROYAL COMMISSION. They hear that one sure ok reddy. Then to double confirm we say that MAYBE only we will make the findings of the Royal Commission public. That will divert their attention from Teoh to Tiu. Kao tim.
But then the fler's death how? Huh? That one ah? Very easy what. They want to know if anybody kill the Teoh boy, right? Call inquest la. Put one of our magistrates in charge. After some time we say got one fler over-zealous and went 'too far' with his investigative methods. We all do a loud collective TSK TSK TSK then handcuff the fler, take him to court, guilty, send him to jail......after a few months nobody will even remember and then we can quietly 'accident' the fler or something la. Hello! We've been doing stuff like this for more than 50 years la. Sure can one. Kao tim.
DPM, Muhyiddin Yassin said all quarters should respect the royal commission as an independent body and accept its decision without any prejudice. Errr......yeah.....since when did we say we wouldn't? You scold us for what?
He also said that the commission was the result of calls by various parties including Teoh Beng Hock’s family. In other words you asked for it, we are giving it to you so? Errr......yeah......we asked for a Royal Commission of Inquiry into the events resulting in the needless death of Teoh Beng Hock.
You are going to pick people for a Royal Commission of Inquiry into the investigative methods of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission. Big difference. No?
