PETALING JAYA — July 19, 2018: Police confirmed today to receiving on Tuesday an order from the Attorney-General’s Chambers to reopen probe into the death of political aide Teoh Beng Hock in 2009.
“We will revisit the case and complete the probe papers,” Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun said after the presentation by PLUS of an expressway mobile patrol vehicle to the police in Subang Jaya.
Teoh was found sprawled on the fifth floor of Plaza Masalam in Shah Alam, where the MACC headquarters was located, on July 16, 2009. He was 30.
Commenting on the death of Mongolian model Altantuya Shariibuu, Fuzi said the papers on the reopened murder case were now completed, with police awaiting for further instructions from the AGC.
Altantuya is believed to have been killed and her body blown up with explosives in Mukim Bukit Raja, Klang, in October 2006.
In 2009, former police Special Action Unit members Sirul Azhar Umar and Azilah Hadri were found guilty of Altantuya’s murder. The Court of Appeal overturned their sentences in 2013 but upon the prosecution’s appeal, they were upheld by the Federal Court. — Bernama
