YOU’RE THE ONE BEING ‘CARELESS & UTTERLY INCORRECT’: MUHYIDDIN RIPS INTO RAMKARPAL FOR ‘FALSE CLAIM’ COPS DELAYING RE-OPENING OF BENG HOCK MURDER PROBE

KUALA LUMPUR – Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin today denied an alleged cover-up in investigations into the death of former DAP aide Teoh Beng Hock.

The home minister chided fellow Pakatan Harapan (PH) lawmaker Ramkarpal Singh for making a “careless and utterly incorrect” statement and said he had ordered the Inspector-General of Police to reinvestigate Teoh’s 2015 death from a fall after overnight questioning from anti-graft officers, after the Cabinet agreed to reopen the case.

“Pursuant to my order and a letter from the Attorney-General (AG) dated July 17 2018, the Royal Malaysian Police Force (RMP) have formed a special taskforce led by Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Datuk K. Manoharan, tore-investigate this case,” Muhyiddin said in a statement.

He added that the taskforce submitted its report to the Attorney General’s Chambers for further action last October.

“My statement that the police are awaiting orders from the AG, as reported by the media on October 25, 2018, is in reference to the further action from the AG, after the investigation papers were submitted by the special taskforce.

“The AG had given specific instructions to the special taskforce and investigations are still ongoing,” the Pagoh MP added.- Malay Mail

Beng Hock’s death: Muhyiddin raps Ramkarpal over ‘false claim’

Home Minister Muhyiddin Yassin has denied DAP lawmaker Ramkarpal Singh’s allegation that he failed to instruct the police to re-open investigations into Teoh Beng Hock’s death.

The Bersatu president described the Bukit Gelugor MP’s remarks as “careless and false”.

“As a government MP, he should be more careful when making statements, especially concerning members of the government administration.

“I deeply regret the statement (by Ramkarpal),” he added in a statement this afternoon. – M’kini
