About Malaysians for Beng Hock
Malaysians for Beng Hock is a citizen’s initiative with the aim of pushing for justice for the late Teoh Beng Hock and his family, which until now is still being denied
Teoh Beng Hock was a political aide to a Selangor state executive councillor, who in July 2009 died mysteriously after spending a night and enduring a marathon questioning session at the offices of the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission in Shah Alam as a witness to a case.
Amid strong public outrage, the federal government ordered the establishment of a coroner’s court to conduct an inquest into Beng Hock’s death, with the Prime Minister promising that “no stone will be left unturned in finding out the real cause of death”
More than a year has passed, and it seems like all the stones remain unturned. Justice remains elusive. The truth remains buried.
Some quarters, such as the lawyers and experts representing the government, are still trying to convince the world that Beng Hock killed himself. But the thinking public will buy none of that
With no end in sight, Beng Hock’s family remains devastated but nonetheless determined to fight for justice for the beloved member of the family who died so young, so undeservingly, so cruelly. And the family members need the support of the people to keep going until the truth is uncovered
Therefore, Malaysians for Beng Hock is born. It is a movement in support of Beng Hock’s family. It is a movement in search of justice. It is a movement against state-sponsored torture. It is a movement for all of us who care.
