1. Leong Yook Kong - August 17, 2009

Khairul had demonstrated on 14 August 2009 on how TBH jumped from the window sill. I did not see the demonstration done by Khairul, was Khairul in the standing position or squating position?

1. If he was in the standing position, then something is not correct. Assuming that the height of TBH is 1630mm (5 feet 4 inches) and the height of vent is 1500mm (4 feet 11 inches), TBH’s head was higher than the top transom of the window opening by 130mm (5 inches) when in the standing position.

2. If the vent height is 1800mm (5 feet 11 inches), there was a head clearance of 170mm (6 and three quarter inches) when in the standing posistion. We must remember that the window is a top hung window construction (open at a slanting angle) and therefore at the apex the clearance is limited. When the window is opened at an angle of 45 degree, the clearance just above 1630mm is only app. 200mm (roughly about 8 inches). How to jump in the standing position due to the limited clearance?

3. I leave it to you to imagine how a person jumps in a squatting position?

4. Assuming that the window dimension is:-
(a) 750x1500mm high with 6mm thick glazing, the weight of the window is app. 21kg and with 10mm thick glazing, the weight is app. 32 kg.
(b) 750x1800mm high with 6mm thick glazing, the weight of the window is app. 40kg and with 10mm thick glazin, the weight is app. 61kg.

5. For such a large top hung window the restrictor stay (2 bar hinge) can be used as extra support by fitting it below the existing friction stay (4 bar hinge). This has the effect of limiting the opening as well as adding greater stability to the window panel. Was there a restrictor stay in place? Check for screw holes to the vertical members of the outer and inner frame for the answer.

Pathologist admits facts do not support suicide theory
By Debra Chong

SHAH ALAM, Aug 17 — The government pathologist, who last week suggested that a DAP political aide had committed suicide, admitted today in the coroner’s court that he did not find any facts to support his theory.

Dr Khairul Aznam Ibrahim from the Hospital Tengku Ampuan Rahimah (HTAR) in nearby Klang told the inquest into Teoh Beng Hock’s death that he knew the 30-year-old was due to register his marriage the day he was found dead on a 5th-floor landing at Plaza Masalam here, nine floors below the Selangor Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) office.

The senior medical forensic expert had interviewed Teoh’s elder brother and younger sister as well as his 29-year-old teacher fiancée on the same day.

It was so he could find out the deceased’s psychological background and whether there had been any suicidal tendencies or substance abuse.

Khairul said the facts showed that Teoh was not susceptible to suicide.

Teoh’s elder brother told him that the deceased was an “open and talkative person”, the pathologist added.

But Khairul admitted, under intense grilling from Gobind Singh Deo, the lawyer for Teoh’s family, that he did not interview any of the anti-graft officers to check the possibility of a motive for murder, despite knowing that the political secretary to Selangor executive councillor Ean Yong Hian Wah had been subjected to an interrogation before he died.

“That is the duty of the police. Not me,” Khairul replied.
