Teoh Lee Lan, the late Teoh Beng Hock’s sister, attended the forum, “Injustice for 1 Year: What Say You,Malaysians”, at Kuala Lumpur and Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall at yesterday 8.30 pm. “Last year, everyone was depressed, shocked and cried together as we could not believe that a witness who went to MACC in assisting investigation, would end up as a cold dead body,” she said.
“In June, Malaysia Anti-Corruption Commission made a simple report which declared that Teoh Beng Hock was an important witness, who assisted in investigation regarding the Independence Day funds which related to Y.B. Ean Yong Hian Wah. MACC emphasised that they have never investigated Teoh Beng Hock. Why do the defendant lawyers keep on mentioning about invoice, which supposedly incriminates Teoh Beng Hock?” she added.
“An important witness who could be your child or grandchild and you never think that they would end up as deady, after going to MACC office? Have you ever thought of when you are at the happiest moment – going to be a father soon, would you be thinking of death? If you never thought of this, please think about it. What would you do, if you were Teoh Beng Hock?” she asked.
Many friends told her that the people would seek justice for him. People would not forget about Teoh Beng Hock’s case because there is a problem with Malaysia’s justice system. This is the problem of abuse of power.
“We (Teoh’s family) were frustrated over this last year. Why would a witness end up dead? The coroner’s court has spent a year to investigate this. Do you think that the coroner’s court has answered the questions?” she asked.
She hopes that people would pay great attention to this case, as is not just about Teoh’s family, but related to one’s future child and country’s system problem.
“If you have not been following this news, you have neglected your rights. Because from this case, we witness how corrupted the Constitution is and how unprofessional the forensic medical expert is. The police commissioner, who supposed to fight for the people’s justice, had hidden such important evidence. Nobody believed this is the truth, as people never expect that the police commissioner to do such things,” she added that Teoh’s family never believed that the purported letter (supposedly written by Teoh Beng Hock) is his last letter.
She also said Teoh’s family would definitely keep on fighting and would request for a special committee to look into his case.
“Last year, everyone supported us (Teoh’s family). After a year, would you still be with us to seek for the truth?” She added that, Teoh’s family only wanted to know the truth and find justice. They do not want the case to be left unresolved.
“If history is repeated. Would you want your future kids to face the same problem? Can a witness die in such a puzzling manner? Would you not investigate if he is your family? What would you do, if you are Teoh Beng Hock?” she asked.
She hopes the Malaysians would not give up, as they do not (Teoh’s family). She urged those who support them to voice out their support. Although she doesn’t meet the people who support them every day, she could still hear their voice and support and it gives us (family) strength. She also hopes the people will put on their thinking cap and be aware of what is happening.
