The royal commission of inquiry has ruled that Teoh Beng Hock committed suicide because of relentless pressure from aggressive interrogation by MACC officers.
The questioning was described as “agresif, tidak wajar, maka langgar peraturan”.
The ruling is set to put the spotlight on the nature of this “aggressive” and “inappropriate” questioning.
In an immediate response, opposition politician Lim Kit Siang tweeted: “Is ‘forced suicide’ suicide or homicide? Is TBH’s death caused by more than ‘forced suicide’?”
He, however, conceded he had not yet seen the report.
