Inquest on Teoh’s death, Royal Commission on MACC methods
KUALA LUMPUR: The Cabinet has agreed to set up an inquest into the death of political aide Teoh Beng Hock as well as a Royal Commission of Inquiry to look into the interrogation methods used by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).
The police report on the on-going investigation would be made public, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said after a Cabinet meeting on Wednesday.
The Royal Commission will also determine if the MACC violated any human rights in its treatment of Teoh.
The inquest into his death, said Najib, would be headed by a magistrate.
Teoh, 30, was found dead on the fifth floor of Plaza Masalam in Shah Alam last Thursday after giving his statement to the Selangor MACC which had been investigating allegations that certain state assemblymen had misused constituency funds.
Teoh, Selangor executive councillor Ean Yong Hian Wah’s political secretary, was not a suspect but had been questioned as a witness.
