It is learnt that a window latch from the office on the 14th floor was removed for inspection.

About 20 police forensics personnel, led by Se­langor deputy CID chief (administration) Asst Comm Omar Mammah, went to the MACC office at about 5.30pm.

The team first went to the building’s operations centre on the ground floor and took away the CCTV recordings.

They then went up to the MACC office and spent several hours recording statements from MACC staff.

At about 7.50pm, the officers were seen leaving the MACC office carrying documents.

It is learnt that a handphone belonging to Teoh, 30, who was the political secretary to Selangor exco member Ean Yong Hian Wah, was taken away by police on the day of his death on Thursday.

It is learnt that police are tracing the last phone calls Teoh made before his death.

A janitor found Teoh’s body at the fifth floor of the plaza at about 1.30pm.

Teoh, who was picked up by the MACC for questioning on Wednesday afternoon, was released at 3.45am the following day.

Selangor MACC director Jaafar Mahad said his officers would give their fullest co-operation to police in their investigations.

“Whatever they want, whoever they want, we will gladly oblige if it will help unearth the truth.

“We ourselves are from an enforcement agency and we know what investigations are all about.

“We will not hide anything because there is nothing to hide,” he said.
