Now, the inquest’s verdict is out i.e. that Sarbaini’s death was a misadventure, which meant that he was not murdered nor did he commit suicide. He died having slipped off the MACC HQ’s building in KL. One wonders what he was doing on a narrow ledge of the building’s third floor pantry window. Was he trying to escape unnoticed by the MACC, thinking that he could jump onto the roof of the badminton court below? But why does he need to do this since it was reported that he came to the MACC HQ on his own free will. It would have been different if he was trying to escape after being arrested.
In the case of Teoh Beng Hock, the inquest ruled that Teoh committed suicide. In other words, he died on his own accord and that no one is responsible or can be accused for his death. But I think Teoh wasn’t a crazy guy to simply take his own life without a cause or reason. If he isn’t crazy, then there must be a strong cause and reason that had made him jump off the window of the fifth floor of the Selangor MACC HQ building. Even someone with real courage would not want to do what Teoh had done.
So, escaping and jumping off the window of an MACC building has now become a trend if one wants to escape the hell of MACC. Only fools would want to do that, and I think both Teoh and Sarbaini are certainly not fools. There is no reason to escape through the window when there are enough doors to get through. One would believe if Teoh and Sarbaini were ‘graduates’ of the Tanjung Rambutan Mental Hospital, but on the contrary both were sound and decent human being enjoying a good life i.e. one with a family and the other was about to be married. What are the factors and reason that had led them to escape through the window and fall to their death would seem unimportant.
With that verdict, both the cases are deemed to have ended. No one at MACC is faulted upon, and all can now proceed to do what they were good at doing i.e. investigating cases of corruption, abuses and what not. ‘Guilt’ is never a word that is of concern to the MACC officers, and should there be another incident of death while in their custody, then one can guess what the verdict would be.
The same can also be said of death while in police custody, where no one has yet to be brought to justice. I think, justice can only be served if the dead can be brought back to life, and that can only happen in the hereafter. As of now, those that were a party to the death while in MACC and police custody can continue to enjoy the worldly pleasures without the fear of retribution. But pray and pray hard that the time for your retribution will certainly come.
