Coroner rejects MACC contempt, Teoh inquest resumes Feb 19

As expected, the magistrate’s court here today rejected the bid by the deceased’s family who wanted action taken against Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) officer Raub Ghani for lodging a police report against a key witness in the ongoing inquest.

Magistrate Azmil Muntapha Abbas said that in a contempt charge, the intention behind the act did not matter. Therefore, the MACC officer who tried to sabotage the inquest proceedings escaped the law just like that.

Just because of this MACC guy the inquest has been postponed so many times as the key witness to the case, Dr Pornthip did not want to testify for fear of being detained by the police after Raub lodged a police report against her.

We doubt the magistrate's inquest would serve justice to the Teoh family as what we saw this case is going to prolong. Can this inquest guarantee that the murderer could be found and brought to justice as soon as possible.

This is what the Najib administration still failed to answer till today.
