Teoh Beng Hock: Never Forget

On 16 July 2009, a young man by the name of Teoh Beng Hock was found dead in the compound of the offices of the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC).

Three years on, many questions still remain unanswered — perhaps destined to be forever so.

As with many things, Teoh Beng Hock’s death may have already faded into the depths of many memories. But on this, the third anniversary of his death, let us remind ourselves to never forget, so justice may one day be done.

The following is a selection of some must-read posts on this blawg to refresh your memory:

Read. Share. And never forget.

One Response to Teoh Beng Hock: Never Forget

    While I'm glad that all Malaysians can be so…united in remembering such a tragedy, I find it a little sad that people don't seem to remember the other man found dead the same day as Teoh: http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/109451

    R Gunasegaran was found dead in police custody the same day as Teoh Beng Hock. The police claim that he collapsed while being fingerprinted, while testimonies from other detainees at the station claim a police officer kicked him in the chest. Between the inconsistencies of the police's claims, and the statutory declarations of three other detainees, no action has yet been taken against anyone – and both sides of the political divide have been silent on the issue.

    Last month the appeal was heard. The verdict of that appeal is due this Thursday, July 19 2012. I hope people will at least take the time to see if any real progress has been made, and take a moment to remember that the Teoh Beng Hock case was not the only tragedy of July 16 2009.
