When I got to the office at 10am this morning, my colleague hurriedly pulled me into his office and said, “Want to read another thriller of another man falling to his death from the office of the MACC?”. Prior to this, I had no knowledge of the incident, and upon reading it in the internet, my hands got itchy and could not wait any longer to write something about this incident in my blog when I get back home.
The news story reads something like this; ‘Selangor Custom Assistant Director Ahmad Sarbani Mohamed was found dead at the MACC building in Jalan Cochrane early this morning, and is believed to have fallen out of the third floor window. Ahmad Sarbani is being investigated for graft, together with 62 others in a nationwide scoop by MACC’.
This news looks kind of similar to the Teoh Beng Hock suicide story of ‘self strangulation’. The difference is that Ahmad Sarbani fell off a third floor building and not a 14 floor building, and we are not told as to whether it is another ‘self strangulation’or suicide. I am quite certain that this is going to be another story of suicide, and that the MACC will deny till dooms day that Ahmad Sarbani was left all by himself at the time of the suicide, and MACC officers had nothing to do with his death. They will reinforce this by saying that were absolutely no witnesses, but God.
If anyone were to ask me, “Did Ahmad Sarbani actually jumped out of the window to his death?”. My spontaneous answer is that he did not self strangled himself, nor was he trying to escape by jumping out of the window. I believe someone was threatening him with death if he did not cooperate in the investigation (that is the usual case). And I believe too that the threat was physical, with Ahmad Sarbani being pressed close to the window. This is the only answer that I can think off, because the MACC has over the last few years shown itself to be unprofessional in carrying out their investigation, and the only method they knew was to employ the ‘Gestapo’ method. I do not believe Ahmad Sarbani or anyone would want to take their own life if the investigation was done professionally. I now tend to believe in what others has been saying that some MACC investigating officers are nothing but ruthless thugs, and Abu Kassim has to believe this.
The one major reason that stops me from believing that Ahmad Sarbani killed himself is that he is a Muslim, and he knows the consequences of his act in the afterlife. Suicide is the last word among Malaysian Muslim. Ahmad Sarbani is not a Palestinian fighting to fee their land from Israel’s brutal oppression and deprivation. Neither is he a suicide bomber. He is an ordinary person, and if indeed he was involved in graft, he still has time to repent, should he be send to jail. In jail is the best time for him to repent, free of any worldly influences.
All this has to stop. And the only way to stop this is to boot out the MACC Commissioner including a few others, and for the government to do a complete revamp of MACC. This has to be done now, and there should no longer be anymore compromises or RCI's if the government is serious in wanting to salvage what is left of the good name of the MACC.
