2128: A candlelight vigil attended by 200 people is now in progress outside the MACC building. My contact at the scene tells me that police have just arrived and apparently, the FRU are said to be on the way.
I am still trying to digest the horrible news of the death of Teoh Beng Hock, who was the political secretary to a Selangor exco member from the DAP.
A few simple questions keep bugging me: if he was just a witness, as the MACC claims, why the need to question him overnight until 4.00am?
Couldn’t it have waited until the next day? Why the urgency?
Why was he denied access to his lawyer during questioning?
Who is the MACC accountable to?
