The Teoh Beng Hock Royal Commission Of Inquiry(RCI) Should Be Concerned Not Just About Human Rights That Were Violated As A Result MACC’s Interrogation Methods But Also For The Human Life That Was Lost.
DAP urges the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to extend the terms of reference for RCI into the death of DAP’s Teoh Beng Hock to fully investigate the cause of death, identify the culprits responsible as well as identify and overcome weakness to prevent any more custodial deaths.
The Teoh Beng Hock RCI should be concerned not just about the human rights that were violated as a result of Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission’s (MACC) interrogation methods but also for causing the loss of human life.
The BN government must respect the wishes of Beng Hock’s family calling for a full RCI instead of the superficial RCI set up that appears to hide rather than disclose what happenend. Malaysians can not understand why the government is so concerned about Teoh’s human rights when Teoh is dead. There should be total focus on finding the real culprits and determine the truth so that justice can be done for Beng Hock.
Further the members and Chair of the RCI should be independent and we propose Senator Tunku Aziz as the Chairman. Even though Senator Tunku Aziz is from the DAP, he is a well respected person of impeccable integrity and upright reputation who was not only the President of Transparency International but also International Vice-President of TI.
