Broadest TOR for Royal Commission of Inquiry

The Cabinet today agreed to form a Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) to look into the sudden death of political aide Teoh Beng Hock while under the watch of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission last Thursday.

For a start, the RCI should be filled with towering individuals with impeccable public credibility and integrity, such as DAP National Vice Chairman Tunku Abdul Aziz, who was a commissioner in the Royal Commission of Inquiry on the Royal Malaysian Police in 2004-2005.

The RCI must be given the broadest possible terms of reference in conducting the inquiry. It should not restrict its inquiry on the causes of the sudden death of Teoh Beng Hock and bringing to book the culprits.

The RCI shall also examine the standard operating processes governing investigative works of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission and other enforcement agencies including the Police.

More importantly, the RCI shall recommend ways to ensure the independence of the MACC in future so that the Commission’s operation is not politically inspired.
