The exhumation of Teoh Beng Hock’s body for a second autopsy, ordered by the inquest into his recent death, has been completed. The exhumation comes following the testimony of Thai pathologist Dr Pornthip Rojanasunand that the death of the political aide was very likely a homicide.
Dr Pornthip is also on the scene to observe the exhumation process.
Also present were two other forensic experts — Dr Shahidan Md Noor, who is chief pathologist at the Sungai Buloh Hospital, and UK pathologist hired by the MACC, Dr Peter Venezis. I trust these specialists will conduct the autopsy professionally.
The second autopsy is a last chance for the country to right the wrong. Someone was wrongly detained, a standard investigative procedure was not followed and a young bright life was lost.
Malaysia will continue to remain at the bottom rung of every index available if the majority in this country continue to believe in those who had abused their power and will continue to do so by justifying race and religion.
When this country eventually collapses, it is the majority who will suffer the most.
This country can only move forward if all of us, regardless of race, creed and religion, focus on good governance, responsible leadership and real sincere partnership.
SAY NO TO CORRUPTION! SAY NO TO ABUSE OF POWER! SAY NO TO RACISM!
Do it NOW!
