Batu Buruk incident enquiry. Suhakam, in the news for the wrong reasons recently, has announced the setting up of a three-men panel to investigate the use of firearms and live bullets during a Sept 8 "illegal assembly" in Batu Buruk.
But over two months after the fact?
Asked why the inquiry was not conducted earlier, Suhakam Commissioner Shafee Abdullah said : "We depend on the police investigations and we allowed the legal process to go first, and since there is no inquiry focus on this issue, we decided to proceed with it."
The inquiry will not touch on the "illegal assembly that took place there that night but only on whether there was discharge of ammunition", says Bernama here.
