MEDIA STATEMENT

This is to announce that the parents, sister and brother of the late Teoh Beng Hock (Teoh Lee Lan and Teoh Meng Kee) together with myself and lawyer Sangeet Kaur Deo met with the Attorney General, Tommy Thomas at the Attorney General’s Chambers today at approximately 3.00pm.

The meeting, which ended at approximately 4.30pm, was arranged with the aim of discussing various issues pertaining to Teoh’s case, including but not limited to, the reclassification of same under section 342 of the Penal Code recently.

The AG and two other officers explained the status of the case to us at length and assured us that investigations are still ongoing and that the said reclassification was merely administrative and does not, in any way, indicate that investigations into Teoh’s death is only restricted to wrongful confinement at this stage.

I will next take the necessary steps to meet the Inspector General of Police together with Teoh’s family in the near future to discuss the status of investigations with him as well and how things can be expedited as the matter has been long outstanding.

We will continue doing what we can to ensure justice is served and hope the matter is resolved soonest.

Dated this 19th July, 2019.
