Based on media coverage, it appears the clamour to ban alcohol is gaining more notoriety than the inquest on TEOH's death at the MACC offices.
This is a good letter in malaysiakini on Alcohol ban: Let's have sober decisions as it presents a balanced view but it will get more acceptance if the writer were a Muslim.
Given that most matters in Malaysia are seriously coloured by race, I wonder if public anger against the MACC and the PDRM would be more had Teoh been an Ahmad. If you study the way in which the so-called experts were directed by the police, you will notice that it was the police who told the experts exactly what tests should be conducted.
Is that not strange when you call in an expert for help? It is as good as directing,
"you can find out anything as long as ---- is not implicated."
I find that most disturbing as the truth is being hidden.
When Malaysians are not allowed to learn the truth about what goes on in the PDRM and the MACC, we cannot hope to progress as a nation. That is why I keep harping for the IPCMC at the risk of sounding like a broken record.
So if you have not taken the poll on the inquest, please take a minute to do so. Thanks for voting.
