The Longest While

From NST’s report today on PC by MACC’s deputy commissioner Abu Kassim Mohammad:
“Teoh never showed signs of being under pressure throughout the eight hours of questioning.”

“It was normal for the questioning to last more than eight hours.”

"He was a very cooperative, friendly, good and helpful witness.”

"When he came in, he was not escorted, unlike suspects who are guarded around the clock, even when they go to the toilet.”

Incredulous is the word that comes to mind when I read this piece.

Truly blessed are those who stay Saintly while being grilled for eight hours.

According to news report the deceased was finally allowed to go home in the wee hours of the morning, which meant that the questioning went on throughout the whole night.

Eight frigging hours.

With total strangers who wants to probe you for information.

Crucial information on allocations, on public funding. On alleged mishandling.

Saintly is a good word to be used here.

Here’s one witness who would not fit the criteria gushed out by AKM: Kajang municipal councilor Tan Boon Wah.

His alleged "They called me a stupid Chinese... Are you from China? You can't speak Malay?” line of questioning would make eight hours pass by very, very slowly.

Eight God-awful hours.

Watching time

It's all hearsay now because Teoh Beng Hock is not around to tell us what actually happened!! And because there is not much trust in govt. apppointed agencies, who would now believe the word of the MACC?

honestly, I am lost of words when I read about this incident. Too many questions, too little answers.. or maybe none answered.

Sighhh ...

When we no longer trust the institutions, it downhill for the whole country.

Hearsay is right CC. Who's to say AKM was saying the whole truth after all?

If only they had recorded the session, eh?

Maybe this should be a law.
