One Word: Champion!

Never in the history of Malaysian law has there been this much forehead-slapping.

Never before have so many eyes rolled collectively in exasperation and annoyance. In fact, the vortex caused by all that eye-rolling is probably contributing to the formation of a tornado in Kansas or New Mexico right this very moment.

The credit goes to one man - Abdul Razak Musa, a specimen of certifiably limited intelligence, who represents the MACC over the Teoh Beng Hock inquest.

I wasn't in the courtroom, so I had trouble believing the Malaysiakini report, but according to some of my sources who witnessed the shenanigans first-hand, the following events actually did happen.

He began by trying to smear the forensic pathologist Pornthip Rojanasunand's credibility as an expert witness. According to my sister the lawyer, this is an accepted practice in persuading the judge to dismiss the witness' opinion.

"Did you know that the university that you graduated from is not recognised in Malaysia?" Abdul Razak Musa, the dumb fool asked.

To that, Pornthip answered, "But it is in the top five in Asia."

If he had done his homework properly, he would have known that it isn't in the top five. It is either the seventh or eighth. I checked.

It is, however, still a very embarrassing point as no Malaysian university comes even close. Somehow I think that point was lost on him.

If someone had told me this was going to be a cross between the Jerry Springer show and a PT Barnum circus, I would have taken the day off and gone to watch. These days you can't get this sort of entertainment for free.

Our hero went on to suggest that Teoh had strangled himself and even went as far as to demonstrate this on himself.

If you thought nothing could possibly be worse than that, you would be wrong. For the grand finale, Abdul Razak Musa asked Pornthip if she had any experience jumping off a building.


The mainstream media however, managed to sanitise their version of it, so that the entire proceedings actually appeared sane.

How I pity those stalwart supporters of the mainstream media. They have no clue what they've missed.

Pity the stalwart supporters of the MSM? What about stalwart supporters of MACC, UMNO and Dr M? :-D

I know we are meant to be serious about this, but your post made me laugh. I'm sorry. Truly.

I was already smiling after the first few para, but the piece de resistance was surely his suggestion that Teoh had strangled himself, and then proceeding to demonstrate it for those with their jaws on their knees!?! OMG! Kill me now.

I would imagine that he is the creme de la creme of our local universities. Wouldn't you agree?

What do you think the outcome of this whole thing is going to be? Given the players, I am not putting my money behind closure and justice - poetic or otherwise.

Obviously it's a great pity that he didn't succeed.

"Abdul Razak Musa asked Pornthip if she had any experience jumping off a building."

Obviously Pornthip replied "well you wouldn't be questioning me now if I had first hand experience would you"

Thanks for the entertainment Crankster. LOL

that joker is indeed the champion.

didnt read about this university ranking point, but i saw the self strangulation video...

are there more videos? i wanna see how this fool... ok, maybe not... waste of my time.

Antares - they do not deserve pity. They deserve to be sent to padi fields where mosquitoes swarm...

Pat - I'm not optimistic about the outcome either. There is no justice.

Jugular - exactly what I was thinking! Perhaps someone should have coaxed him to apply more pressure around his neck for a longer period of time to put him out of his misery...

Zewt - yes, it's a waste of our time, and the inquest is a waste of our money since we already know what sort of outcome we're going to get.

HAHA! What a downright champion!
Loved it when he said he could have strangled himself. (while throwing himself off the building, I presume)

And the university thing - Classic! Great comeback by Pornthip.

And oohh! The creme de la creme.
"Have you any experience in jumping off a building?"

So, do you have any experience in strangling yourself? (successfully, I mean)

HAHA! What a spectacle. I should have gone and watched. Better than 'The Practice' or 'LA LAW' combined.
