A Pathologist View:
Thai pathologist Dr Pornthip Rojanasunand told the Coroner’s Court this morning that there was an 80 per cent probability that Teoh Beng Hock’s death was a homicide and not suicide, and suggested that some of his injuries were sustained before his fatal fall.
She said that Teoh’s injuries showed he could have been strangled and that he sustained anal penetration before he fell to his death earlier this year.
Using a graphics presentation, she told the court that not all the injuries sustained by Teoh were consistent with that of a fall.
The skull fracture on Teoh’s head, she said, was not typical of an injury from a fall, but more compatible from blunt force applied directly to the skull.
She also noted round marks on Teoh’s neck which could mean “manual strangulation” with fingers.
An Act of Desperation:
At the inquest, several parties have tried to use some unrelated issues e.g. Beng Hock's financial situation, his female housemate and a psychology test to strengthen their case that he might have committed suicide.
The harder these parties try to use these unreasonable and illogical tactics, the more they would be made to look like desperadoes.
Justice for Beng Hock is not justice for Pakatan or DAP. Justice for Beng Hock is justice for his widow, his unborn child and for all Malaysians. We cannot allow the use of coercive force and abuse of authority go unpunished.
