Police, prison officials told to explain sudden death of trader
The family of a 28-year-old man who died on Monday after a week in custody has demanded a thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death.
Ho Kwai See, a coconut trader from Kota Damansara, was last seen by family members nine days ago, on July 28. Unknown to them, police arrested him that evening and sent him to the Sungai Buloh prison several days later.
Today, his brother, Ho Kooi Sang, lodged a report at the Brickfields police station calling for an investigation, after seeing bruise marks across the chest of the deceased.
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.
