PETALING JAYA: Political aide Teoh Beng Hock’s former boss has hit out at the police for initiating a sedition investigation against Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng for suggesting that Teoh was murdered.
Calling for the police to stop its investigation on Lim immediately, Ean Yong Hian Wah, the Seri Kembangan assemblyman, described the move as being politically motivated to prevent the truth about Teoh’s death from coming out in the open.
Since the Home Ministry played a role in the matter, he suggested that minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein provide an explanation to the rakyat on the investigation.
Ean Yong said what the rakyat saw was the government trying to hide something including delaying the investigation process for the death inquest, and refusing the setting up of a royal commission to conduct an independent and fair investigation into Teoh’s death.
The Selangor state exco said Malaysians did not believe that Teoh’s death was a suicide, adding that the government could not influence the people’s perception.
tunku : when it come to others it's politically motivated, but when it comes to them it's democracy.democracy my foot.the whole thing is politically motivated.the death is just a simple suicidal death but because of politics(the way they want it) the labelling it murder.why ean yong wants to hit out at the police, the police is doing their work base on laws and regulations.they did not throw guan eng behind the bar yet without investigating.the police has the right to investigate guan eng under sedition as the case is in the hand of the court and guan eng is giving his verdict like the law of the country belongs to his father.by right guan eng is held under ISA but the government is too "SOFT" with the opposition at the moment.
