He says he is making an application to the court for the letter to be investigated and has informed Teoh’s family accordingly.

Tan Hock Chuan, for the Attorney-General’s Chambers, said the prosecution has no objection for further investigation to be carried out. “All of us are interested to know the truth. These are allegations that must be investigated by police. Let the police investigate to verify the truth or otherwise of the allegations.”

It is learnt that the coroner and all interested parties viewed the letter earlier in the afternoon.

MACC legal affairs director Datuk Abdul Razak Musa is lawyer holding watching brief for the organisation.

Yesterday wraps up

A second forensic pathologist has testified that Teoh Beng Hock may have committed suicide based on the absence of defensive wounds or signs that he was restrained.

Dr Prashant Naresh Samberkar, who is attached to the Universiti Malaya Medical Centre, also said evidence indicated that the political aide was conscious when he landed on the fifth floor of Plaza Masalam last month.

On why he believed Teoh had deliberately thrown himself off the building, Dr Prashant gave several reasons, including “no sign of asphyxiation, for example, pressure on the neck which can cause scratch or pressure abrasions on the neck.”
“There is no evidence of tongue bite or any injury to the tongue which could occur in case of a struggle,”he said.

Teoh, the political secretary to Selangor executive councilor Ean Yong Hian Wah, had gone to the MACC office at the 14th floor of Plaza Masalam here on July 15 to be questioned over alleged irregular disbursement of state funds.

He was found dead at the buildings fifth floor service corridor the following day.

On marks and the damage on Teoh’s right shoe that counsel holding a watching brief for Teohs family and the Selangor government had suggested were drag marks, Dr Prashant said the marks were consistent with a fall from a high place.

To a question by government-appointed counsel Tan Hock Chuan on injuries found in and around Teoh’s anus that counsel Gobind Singh Deo and the state’s counsel Malik Imtiaz Sarwar had suggested had been inflicted upon him, he said: “These injuries were sustained as a result of the impact at the time of landing.”

He also dismissed suggestions by Gobind and Malik Imtiaz on Monday that Teoh may have been clubbed on the head before his plunge.

He also said Teoh had probably squatted on the window sill before the plunge as marks on both the shoes co-relate with the width of the window sill.

On whether a person would freeze up in fear if he were being held in that position on the window sill, Dr Prashant said yes, adding that there would also be not much of a struggle.

Gobind: Do you agree that someone could have held him there in that position?

Dr Prashant: It is possible.

On Dr Prashant’s testimony that there were “disturbances”

in the area around the window, like smudges and finger drag marks, Gobind asked the pathologist if these could be due to some form of resistance.

Dr Prashant: Yes.

Gobind: Shows that the person standing there had resisted falling?

Dr Prashant: Possible, sir.

The pathologist also gave reasons why he believed Teoh was alive at the time of impact, citing the amount of soft tissue injury, bruising and haemorrhaging.

Dr Prashant said the injury to the skull, especially the collection of blood clots in the skull at the top of the head, also indicated that Teoh had been alive when he hit the floor.

The inquest before coroner Azmil Muntapha Abas continues today.

SHAH ALAM, Aug 19 — The scandal-hit Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) yesterday offered the coroner’s court a recording of the statements taken from political aide Teoh Beng Hock just hours before he was found dead on a 5th-floor landing outside its Selangor office here on July 16.

The MACC’s director of legal affair, Datuk Abdul Razak Musa, who was yesterday introduced to the coroner as the lawyer holding a watching brief for the national anti-graft body, said he was willing to supply a recording of Teoh’s statements, even though the investigations into the claims that Selangor DAP assemblymen are misusing state funds have yet to be wrapped up.

The lawyer leading the Attorney General’s team to assist the coroner, Tan Hock Chuan, said he had yet to view the contents of the recording himself.

He added the statements may or may not be relevant in shedding light on Teoh’s state of mind before his death.

Lawyer Gobind Singh Deo, representing Teoh’s family, said the statements may not fully reflect what happened during the interrogation session with the MACC investigators.

The MACC investigating officer (IO), Mohd Anuar Ismail, had earlier testified from the witness stand that Teoh’s statement was recorded between 1.30am and 3.30am on July 16, and that he had not been handcuffed during questioning.

Gobind pointed out the obvious, that Teoh who was called as a witness, was no longer alive to refute the MACC investigators’ version of what really took place.

Magistrate Azmil Munthapa Abas, who is acting as coroner in the inquest, said he would decide today whether or not to accept the statements.

Teoh, the DAP political secretary to Seri Kembangan assemblyman Ean Yong Hian Wah, was last month found dead outside the Selangor graft busters’ office here a day after going in to aid investigations.

He had driven to the MACC office in Plaza Masalam from the nearby Selangor state secretariat on July 15 after five anti-graft officers seized his laptop and computer, ostensibly to check the hard drive for documents that may show discrepancies in Ean Yong’s accounts, Mohd Anuar told the inquest yesterday.

Inkues Teoh: Saksi SPRM tergamam secara tiba-tiba
Oleh ARIFFUDDIN ISHAK

SHAH ALAM: Pemangku Penguasa Kanan Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM), Mohd Anuar Ismail, secara tiba-tiba tergamam dan tidak dapat menjawab ketika disoal-siasat oleh peguam pihak kerajaan, Tan Hock Chuan, tentang bagaimanakah siasatan dijalankan ke atas mendiang Teoh Beng Hock.

Ketika Tan meminta saksi ke-16 inkues kematian Teoh ini menjelaskan situasi proses tersebut dijalankan, Mohd Anuar, 32, hanya diam seolah-olah tidak memahami soalan yang diajukan kepadanya.

“Semasa kamu masuk ke dalam bilik tersebut (bilik soal siasat dijalankan) bagaimana suasana semasa Nadzri (Mohd Nadzri Ibrahim) rakam percakapan Teoh?” soal Tan.

Mohd Anuar bagaimanapun hanya diam dan seolah-olah tergamam dengan soalan tersebut.

Tan bagaimanapun mengulangi beberapa kali soalan yang sama malah turut mempermudahkan soalan tersebut namun Mohd Anuar masih menunjukkan reaksi yang beliau tidak faham.

“Tak mengapa kalau kamu tak dapat nak terangkan situasi pada ketika itu, tapi adakah kamu tanya kepada mereka (Teoh dan Nadzri) sama ada terdapat apa-apa masalah?” soal Tan.

Kemudiannya Mohd Anuar lantas menjawab beliau ada bertanya kepada kedua-dua mereka jika terdapat apa-apa masalah.

“Saya ada bertanya kepada Nazri dan Teoh sekiranya ada apa-apa masalah yang timbul semasa merakam percakapan.

“Nazdri maklumkan tidak ada apa-apa masalah, namun Teoh hanya mendiamkan diri,” jawab Mohd Anuar.

Mohd Anuar yang bertindak sebagai pegawai penyiasat bagi kes siasatan terhadap aduan salah guna peruntukan wang kerajaan negeri berkata, rakaman percakapan Teoh dibuat pada 16 Julai lalu berhubung siasatan dakwaan salah guna peruntukan Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri (ADUN) Seri Kembangan, Ean Yong Hian Wah.

Jelas Mohd Anuar, rakaman percakapan Teoh dibuat antara pukul 1.30 pagi dan 3.30 pagi hari yang sama dan beliau sempat memerhatikan keadaan itu antara dua ke tiga minit.

“Saya hanya berada di situ lebih kurang dua, tiga minit,” katanya dan memberitahu bahawa Teoh tidak digari sepanjang berada di pejabat SPRM dan proses rakaman percakapan dibuat dalam keadaan pintu bilik yang sentiasa terbuka.

Mohd Anuar juga memberitahu Koroner Azmil Muntapha Abas bahawa selepas menjenguk Teoh dan Nadzri beliau kemudiaanya tidur di sofa di ruang rehat pegawai.

“Kemudian dalam pukul 3.30 pagi saya pergi ke tandas dan buat keputusan untuk tidur di surau… saya tidur sehingga pukul 5 pagi,” katanya.

Dalam prosiding tersebut juga Tan mencadangkan supaya rakaman percakapan Teoh oleh pegawai SPRM dikemukakan kepada mahkamah untuk diteliti bagi membantu siasatan berhubung kematiannya.

Tan juga mencadangkan supaya koroner membaca keterangan tersebut terlebih dahulu sebelum memutuskan sama ada ia relevan ataupun tidak untuk diserahkan kepada semua pihak yang terlibat mengendalikan kes itu.

Cadangan tersebut disokong oleh Pengarah Perundangan SPRM, Datuk Abdul Razak Musa.

Abdul Razak berkata rakaman itu boleh menunjukkan bagaimana tahap pemikiran dan mental Teoh sepanjang siasatan dijalankan.

Bagaimanapun peguam yang mewakil keluarga Teoh, Gobind Singh Deo membantah kerana pada pendapatnya keterangan itu tidak banyak membantu dan ia tidak akan menunjukkan keadaan sebenar Teoh sebelum meninggal dunia.
