That OPEN VERDICT on the Teoh Beng Hock Inquest......

After spending hundreds of man-hours on court proceedings and millions of ringgit of taxpayers monies, it is appalling that the best the coroner can return is an "open verdict" for Teoh Beng Hock's death.
Even the manner in which the verdict has been delivered seems to be like the score in a football match as if the opposing evidence cancels each other out and so the decision is a draw.

"It's not suicide and it's not homicide" says the article from the Star but in between a young man has died by reasons unknown.

I would have expected a more positive result with some indication of probable cause. It appears the court is trying hard not to point fingers. It also shows the frightenening lack of protection of people who have to visit government offices.

Yes, we have wasted a lot of tax money to hear the coroner say it isn't suicide nor homicide.

Thanks for your comments.
It seems the inquest was to stall for time so that it becomes a "cold case".

It's not homicide, neither is it suicide! Then TBH must have just died so suddenly and his spirit then decided to move his body out of the window from the 14th floor of MACC resulting in it landing on the balcony below!!!! What an idiotic answer to all Malaysians after wasting one and a half years of inquest!

Not just stall for time but also to gain political mileage. Guess who is calling for a royal commission of inquiry and coming out smelling like roses?
