The negligence suit settlement between the government and the family of late Teoh Beng Hock over his death has been described as a "bitter victory" by his sister.

Deeply troubled by the whole situation, Teoh Lee Lan, the younger sister of Beng Hock, said she is also upset with the country's judicial system which calculated the RM600,000 compensation based on the deceased's last earned salary.
