Family wants another autopsy over custodial death

comments     Geraldine Tong     Published     Updated

The family of the man who died in police custody yesterday has lodged a police report urging for a second post-mortem and an independent investigation on his death.

"The report lodged by the brother today basically says that they're not satisfied (with the post-mortem)... they saw the (beating) marks.

"Therefore they want an independent police investigation to be carried out in this matter, for action to be taken against all police officers who were involved and also for a second post mortem to be allowed," said the family's lawyer N Surendran.

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.
