"Dr Death" said to be under pressure from certain quarters by the Star, Mon 12/4/10
This report quoted Selangor executive councillor Ean Yong Hian Wah, TBH's former boss, and Malik Imtiaz Sarwar, Selangor government's counsel (Selangor government is the one that engaged Pornthip). Ean Yong was reportedly disappointed and angry. “Dr Pornthip should not be prevented from testifying,’’ he said. Malik said Pornthip had not told him anything. “Maybe she has conveyed it to my clients. I am awaiting their instructions.”
Nazri Aziz calling Thai pathologist a liar does not do anything to help us find the truth about Teoh Beng Hock's death. But Porntip doing an MIA or not appearing to testify at TBH's inquest is a crime. She told us Malaysians that there was an 80 percent probability that TBH was mudered and it was this theory that forced the authorities to conduct a second autopsy on TBH together with a foremost pathologist from the UK.
I take the stand that Porntip must come back or be brought back here to finish what she started.
Gobind, TBH's family lawyer, must ensure that Porntip completes her obligations. I would hold him responsible if Porntip refuses to come back.
The Government of Malaysia must also make the necessary arrangements so that Porntip is back here for the Inquest, aside from calling her a liar, that is.

Her work has taken her to the deadliest of places, so what is it about "government pressure" in Malaysia that she reportedly fears?
