AH, NO MORE POLITICAL PRESSURE! A few days before she was scheduled to testify at the Teoh Beng Hock inquest last April 20, Lim Kit Siang made a very serious allegation by saying that Pornthip was "under pressure from the Malaysian government" not to return to this country for the Teoh Beng Hock inquest.
Well, today Gobind Deo said Pornthip has agreed to return "after receiving permission from the Thai authorities". Does that mean there's no more political pressure from the Malaysian government? Gobind didn't offer an answer. I hope Kit Siang will come up with an explanation as to what really happened with the "political pressure by the Malaysian government".
That aside, the important thing is Pornthip will appear at the inquest in person. She was the reason why the 2nd autopsy on TBH was conducted [she had concluded tat TBH's death was 80% homicide just by looking at pictures of the first autopsy conducted on TBH, and this led to the family of the late TBH to demand another autopsy, which was witnessed by Pornthip and a renowned British expert, Prof Peter Vanezis].
At least, we can say come Aug 18, Pornthip is brave enough to come back and finish what she'd started.
In another development, YB Zahrain Mohamed Hashim, a former PKR members, has challenged PKR icons Raja Petra Kamaruddin and P Balasubramiam to return to Malaysia to be investigated if they were truly innocent. Read the story, RPK angry because he feels threatened, H E R E.
