Teoh supposed to marry today

(Bernama) – It was supposed to have been his wedding day. Instead, July 17 will be now be forever remembered by the Teoh family as the day they prepared for Beng Hock’s funeral.

Selangor executive councillor Ean Yong Hian Wah said his special assistant Teo Beng Hock, who was found dead on the fifth floor of the Plaza Masalam yesterday, was supposed to register his marriage today.

Ean Yong, who was in shock over the tragedy, said he wanted explanation from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

Teoh was a witness in the investigations by the MACC regarding allegations of misappropriation of state allocations recently.

MACC’s director of investigation Datuk Mohd Shukri Abdull, who was at the scene, said Teoh came to the Selangor MACC office on the 14th floor of Plaza Masalam at 5pm on Wednesday to give his statement and was allowed to go back at 3.45am yesterday.

He said before leaving, Teoh promised to return to the Selangor MACC office and bring several documents to assist in the investigations.

“He, however, said that he wanted to rest first in the visitors’ room of the MACC office and was allowed to do so. At 6am he was seen sleeping on the sofa and after that he was not seen again,” he said.

Teoh’s body was found face-down at about 1.30pm. His body was still at the building as at 9pm last night.

Police had yet to issue any statement about Teoh’s death.

Several members of Teoh’s family were seen in the building but refused to comment.

Also present were several DAP’s executive councillors.
