Teoh Inquest Day 11: Mysterious letter appears

The inquest into the death of political aide Teoh Beng Hock took a 'mysterious' turn today with Gobind Singh Deo revealing that he received on Tuesday a letter with names and facts pertinent to the case.

The court agrees that the letter be investigated.

A letter containing 'a handful of names' with details relevant to the inquest was received by Gobind Singh Deo.

Gobind, who is holding a watching brief for political aide Teoh Beng Hock's family, said someone handed him the letter after the hearing on Tuesday.

He said the five-page typed letter had 'a handful of names' and material facts and circumstances relevant to the inquest.

He, however, said the letter was dated Aug 5.

During Wednesday's proceedings, Gobind said he wanted the letter investigated and had informed Teoh's family accordingly.

He said the letter contained explicit details of significance to the inquest.

Tan Hock Chuan, the lawyer representing the Attorney-General's Chambers, said the prosecution has no objection for further investigation to be carried out.

"All of us are interested to know the truth. These are allegations that must be investigated by police. Let the police investigate to verify the truth or otherwise of the allegations."

It is learnt that the coroner and all interested parties viewed the letter earlier in the afternoon.

The inquest then adjourned to Monday afternoon. -- The Star online

The truth, no matter how well concealed, will sooner or later be revealed.Someone is responsible for
TBH's demise.The culprit has sold his soul to the devil.He will certainly be dealt with, if not in this world, then in the next.The most dangerous person in Malaysia, the master mind, who was also the fellow who tried to frame YB Teresa Kok, may be brought to justice.Anyway, his career is
coming to an ignominuos end.
