The video is finally out

The video is finally re-uploaded on the AG Chamber's website. However, at time of posting this article, the website is still not accessible. The video is the court scene between Dr Pornthip Rojanasunand and our DPP Abdul Razak Musa, whose line of questioning has left everyone bewildered. However, before reading the following article from the Malaysian Chronicle, here is a video clip you must see. It shows Razak getting into his car after the trial but was blocked by a TBH supporter. Watch the rest of the video and you can see the kind of people we are dealing with.

After much flak from the public, the Attorney-General has finally uploaded the video recording of the latest proceeding in the Teoh Beng Hock inquest, in which Thai forensic expert Dr Pornthip Rojanasunand had been subjected to brutal cross-examination by a government prosecutor.

The video clip was uploaded this afternoon, more than a week after August 18 hearing and the longest that the AG’s Chambers has ever delayed in booting a clip.

It gave no explanation but on Wednesday, Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng gave it a shelling for trying to cover up the bad behavior of DPP Abdul Razak Musa, who had tried all ways and means to chop down Pornthip's credibility.

The video clip spans 3 hours and comes in a huge 805mb file.

“Why not the latest recording? The latest recording is supposed to be the funniest, full of surprises and our government lawyer will be the laughing stock in the whole legal profession and the whole world. So they purposely tried to hide it,” Lim had told a press conference.

Hard to keep a good woman down

Lim was among the lawyers involved in the Teoh Beng Hock case since his body was discovered on July 16, 2009, after overnight interrogation by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission in connection with a graft probe on several DAP leaders.

Amid public outcry and accusations of a government cover-up, the AG had last year promised transparency and that it would upload the video tape of each inquest proceeding on its website

Last week, Dr Pornthip flew in to testify at Teoh's inquest, flustering the MACC because her forensic findings show Teoh’s death was homicide while the federal-government agency has been insistent it was suicide.

The MACC, together with the AG's Chambers, has tried hard to discredit Pornthip because of her popularity with the Malaysian public. In her country, Pornthip is rated as the most trusted individual in the whole of Thailand, according to a recent Reader’s Digest poll.

Among the 'tough' questions that Abdul Razak asked was where was the murder weapon if there had been homicide, if Pornthip had personal experience of jumping off buildings and if it was possible that Beng Hock had strangled himself. He also tried to denigrate her academic background, however, the poised Pornthip managed to hold up well and answered his questions.
