'Who will fall prey next?'
Much has already been said about the death of Teoh Beng Hock, political aide to Selangor exco member Ean Yong Hean Wah, and I understand the great anger and sadness being expressed by the public to this effect.
I do not know whether what I will share here will be of any use to anyone, but I would like to express my experience of the matter as a colleague of Teoh's in the same Selangor state government administration.
I was not close to Teoh, but being colleagues in the same building we were of course acquainted and I would see him at state events and press conferences.
Words cannot express the deep shock that many of the aides went through when news of Teoh's death came through. It is no different for me.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
