We still remember Teoh Beng Hock

During the month of Qing Ming most Chinese families remember their loved ones who have passed away by sweeping the tombs, but it is not so for this family.

Teoh Beng Hock’s family held a silent procession in front of the new MACC office in Shah Alam.  Three years after his death while in the custody of the Malaysian Anti Corruption Corporation, the family still cannot find inner  peace.

Feeling aggrieved and unvindicated, this silent procession with some 20 supporters dressed as the mythological Black and White Ghost of the underworld is their only way to remind our Government of the injustice done to the family’s youngest son.
