It is difficult to hide a lie, when justice and truth is being sought. And in order to cover up a lie, the liar concoct another piece of lie and this will go on and on until the truth is finally revealed. Even if a liar get away with his lie, it will be his conscience that finally get the better of him. This is what we see happening at the on-going inquest into the death of Teoh Beng Hock.
I had from the beginning found it difficult to believe that Teoh had committed suicide; a finding made by some that makes little sense to me. How could he want to take away his own life when he is all geared to be married and knowing that his wife-to-be is bearing his child. And how bankrupt is the prosecution to have revealed Teoh’s poor bank credit balance as a likely reason for Teoh to indulge in corruption.
All previous autopsies carried out by our local so-called experts did not conclude the possibility that Teoh was murdered. But now, a renowned forensic expert from Thailand, Dr Pronthip Pojanasunand who had performed more than 10,000 autopsies and heads the Thai Ministry of Justice’s Central Institute of Forensic Science has given a 80% possibility that Teoh was unconscious when he fell to his death. And no unconscious person is capable of walking to the window and to jump out. In other words, what Dr. Pronthip implied was that Teoh was simply murdered.
For Dr. Pronthip to come out with such a possibility and in very definitive terms, shows only her true self as a highly professional forensic expert. The findings of our so-called experts have now been put to severe test and challenge by Dr. Pronthip’s declaration.
Now, what if a second autopsy is performed by Dr. Pronthip and her professional finding is proven to be true? Will our experts dare to challenge those findings? And should the findings goes unchallenged, what will Malaysians say of our experts? Or will we then say that Dr. Pronthip’s findings has no professional forensic standing in this country; hence in cannot be taken to be conclusive. Such a thing can be said, just like what was initially declared of the Kugan’s death.
This is an exciting case to watch, and my only hope and that of all like-minded Malaysians is to see that justice prevail, and those found guilty of the offence be given the appropriate punishment. If it is murder, then the only punishment is death.
What now MACC……..the heat is on you!
