Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin brushed off suggestions to set up a royal commission to investigate the matter.
According to him, the police were already probing the incident.
“I know the police force will conduct a thorough and transparent investigation as we would not want anybody to cover up the truth,” he told reporters in Putrajaya today. Read here for more.
WE SAY to Deputy Prime Minister Muyhiddin Yassin:STASI and MACC: Ministerium für Staatssicherheit, commonly known as the STASI or Ministry of State Security was the official secret police of East Germany.
Malaysians have LOST all the trust left in any Police investigation.
The Malaysian Police has shown to be incompetent and unashamedly politically biased.
It has failed miserably the Malaysian public's sense of security and justice once too often.
Nothing short of a Royal Commission of Inquiry will satisfy Malaysians. And they will NOT, nor will we, allow the "Death in MACC Custody of Teoh Boon Hock" to go away that easily THIS time.
No, Mr. Deputy Prime Minister, YOU are dead wrong!!
Our Police Force is untrustworthy to investigate this politically-related tragedy.
It was widely regarded as one of the most effective and repressive intelligence and secret police agencies in the world.It has been accused of a number of assassinations against political dissidents and other people both inside and outside the country.
The STASI monitored political behavior among East German citizens, and is known to have used torture and intimidation to mute dissent.
It infiltrated almost every aspect of East German life. Read here for more
And look at the picture.
Teoh's pants are torn. WHY ?

I was having a meeting at Bangsar when I received a text message at about 5pm yesterday about the death of Teoh Beng Hock.
He was found dead, apparently "on the roof of an adjoining building next to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission’s building."
MACC - The Security Police Arm of UMNO/BN
To say that MACC has been independent all these while is like saying Pam Anderson has not done a silicon job.
- It has been known and seen to move with lightning speed in cases involving OPPOSITION leaders as well as UMNO leaders who are not in the right camp.
At a whiff of anything resembling an iota of wrongdoing, they would raid, arrest and interrogate all and sundry. But if, and only if, the people involved are from the "other side" of the fence.
- But when the luminaries involved are from the GOVERNMENT side, they would just sit still, like an elephant on tranquilisers. Look at the palatial mansion issue. Not a word from MACC.
- Contrast that to the hari raya korban cows issue. They did not only investigated. They even passed judgment in full public view even before the AG had the chance to look at the Investigation Papers!
- And what about the Linggam Tape findings made by the Royal Commission? No statement. No hurry. No nothing. NFA, said the Minister. Who was interviewed? Who was arrested for taking statements? Was there interrogations until 3.45 am?
None of course.

Teoh was not a suspect. And yet he was interrogated mercilessly from 5pm to 3.45am.
Why the need to do so? Can't witnesses be treated with dignity, if not respect? Was he going to run away?
Can't he be asked respectfully to come to the office during office hours and interviewed in a civil manner? After all, if he was a witness, his testimony would be helpful and of assistance to MACC.
There are MORE questions than answers in this whole debacle.
LIFE is CHEAP in Malaysia. That is quite obvious.
My questions are:
- Why would a young man who was to be married in a day's time commit suicide?
- Why must he, who was not a suspect, be interrogated mercilessly from 5pm to 3.45am?
- Why was he allowed to remain in MACC's office AFTER he was released?
- Are members of the public ordinarily allowed to be in MACC's office in the wee hours of the morning WITHOUT supervision? Wouldn't this run contrary to the security of MACC, its officers and all data in MACC's office and custody?
- Are members of the public, especially those who have been interrogated, ordinarily allowed to sleep on a settee in MACC's office unsupervised in the wee hours of the morning or any hours for that matter?
- Are members of the public, especially those who have been interrogated, ordinarily allowed to wander around aimlessly in MACC's office unsupervised?
- Why was Teoh allowed to do all of the above?
- Why wasn't Teoh told to go home and NOT remain in MACC's office as it is a security area?
- What happened to CCTV cameras in MACC's office (I presume there will be a hell of a lot of them)
- How come nobody noticed where Teoh, a total stranger to MACC and its officers, was? Where was the security guard?
MACC Is Not a Tax-Payer-Funded Public Service Agency , It Belongs to UMNO/BN Political Party

The writing was already on the wall very much earlier on MACC . Alarm bells were wailing like banshees. But this was largely ignored.
The KIDNAPPING of a POLICE INSPECTOR by MACC
The Anti-Corruption Agency, now called the MACC, kidnapped the wife and child of a police inspector who had investigated a Chinese underworld boss on the instructions of a higher-up with the rank of ASP.
The MACC wanted the police inspector to change his report so that the three underworld bosses can be freed from detention. And he would have to do that if he wants to secure the release of his family.
The police inspector refused to do that. Instead, he made a police report. And so did his wife.
But nothing was done about the matter. The MACC officers were not arrested and dragged to court on kidnapping charges.
The MACC then leaked information to the media that they are investigating a very senior police officer, the Director of the CCD, for the crime of not declaring RM27 million worth of assets.
The fact that MACC investigations come under the Official Secrets Act was not a hindrance. After all, the OSA is only used against opposition supporters and not against those who serve those who walk in the corridors of power.
Nevertheless, the Director of the CCD was finally not charged for not declaring RM27 million in assets. He was charged for using police property for his personal reasons, something that all government officers, ministers and politicians do blatantly every day of the week. But his real crime is that he detained several Chinese underworld bosses who control the prostitution, loan shark, drugs and gambling business all over Malaysia.
Then they arrested the lawyer who acted for the CCD Director. The MACC officers came to his office on the eve of Hari Raya and handcuffed him after roughing him up like one would do to an armed bank robber.
To ensure that the lawyer suffered the greatest embarrassment this Hollywood-style arrest was done in full view of the entire office.
Malaysia Today wrote about all this and repeated the stories again and again to make sure no one would say they somehow missed the story.
But still nothing was done. No one denied the story.
More importantly, no one did anything about what Malaysia Today revealed.
The MACC has been a tool of those who walk in the corridors of power for a long, long time. Officially, Barisan Nasional has 14 component members with Umno as the lead partner.
Unofficially, Barisan Nasional has seventeen component members. The Election Commission is the fifteenth component member of Barisan Nasional, the Malaysian police the sixteenth, and the MACC the seventeenth.
They all serve the interests of Umno and the Prime Minister.
“Where is the smoking gun?” they ask. “Show me the body!” they demand.
NO gun, NO body, then NO crime has been committed.
Teoh Boon Hock: Tortured and Dead in MACC Custody
Well, today, there is a body (of Teoh Boon Hock).
It is the body of a most unfortunate Chinese opposition member who was arrested and tortured by the MACC officers. Yes, he was tortured. And he was tortured because the MACC wanted him to talk.
But he could not talk. He could not talk because there was nothing to talk about.
The MACC wanted him to finger his comrades in the opposition. They wanted him to implicate his friends in the opposition for various crimes that the MACC alleges had been committed by those in the opposition.
He tried to explain that he is not being stubborn.
He tried to explain that no crime had been committed. He tried to explain that he could not possibly implicate his comrades in the opposition for various crimes if these crimes are merely a figment of the MACC’s imagination.
So they continued to torture him. And he could no longer stand the torture.
After all, he is not the macho type of man. He is but a gentle man who only wanted to get married this weekend. That was all that he wanted.
They threatened to kill him if he refuses to talk.
With tears running down his cheeks he begged for mercy and pleaded with them not to harm him. They threatened to throw him off the top floor if he refuses to talk. Sobbing like a baby he went down on his knees and begged for his life.
They dragged him across the room and opened the window. Then something went terribly wrong. It was supposed to be just a threat. They just wanted to put fear in him. They did not really want to throw him off the top floor. They just wanted him to see what the ground floor looks like from the top floor.
The unfortunate young man panicked. He went ballistic when he saw the distance he would have to travel before hitting the ground floor. He struggled. They could not hold onto him. Gravity took over and the life of this young man was prematurely snuffed out.
THE BIG LIE
The MACC then announced that they had released him the night before. They failed to announce that they had not released him from custody but released him from this world.
Then they suddenly found his body the day after. He jumped. He committed suicide. He took his own life. He was never tortured. He was not dragged to the window with the threat that they would teach him how to fly.
MACC ACTS LIKE GOD
This has been going on for far too long. The MACC acts like God. They kidnap families and torture those they arrest. They threaten those they interrogate with death if they refuse to talk.
And now one young man has really died.
But no one will be punished. No one will be punished because they will say the young man took his own life.
Why he took his own life no one knows. He was never tortured. He was never threatened with death. He was not made to look how far down the ground floor is. He was not accidentally dropped when he panicked and struggled and they could not get a good grip on him.
That is what they will be telling you and me later today.
