The Document believed to be a Suicide Note. I am guessing it's a suicide note, or a document that could be deemed as a suicide note, because the papers and the portals are all hinting that it is, but I'm not Gobind Singh and I'm not Tan Hock Chuan so I won't know for sure.
What I know is this "mystery" document must be very compelling. Gobind, who is also MP for Puchong (DAP), who is still suspended from Parliament for a case of verbal diarrhea, stormed out of Coroner Azmil Muntapha Abas's chamber after a meeting with the MACC lawyers over this note yesterday and needed an hour to cool down.
After which he called on the A-G to step down for withholding evidence.
And reminded the A-G that "we would not bow to any sort of pressure" and that "if necessary we will file an application to ask the AG to explain his conduct".
But was the A-G holding back evidence?
The answer is NO.
The lawyers I spoke to said to me that this is because the inquest into TBH's death is STILL on-going.
"You can't be accused of withholding or holding back evidence when a hearing is still on-going. It's very basic, Gobind knows that, too," one lawyer told me.
If the inquest is already over and someone were to leak out The Mystery Note (someone always does these days), then Gobind can happily accuse the AG of withholding evidence. And the AG will definitely fry for it.
BUT not while the inquest is still on-going.
If Gobind thinks that the AG should be called to "explain his conduct", then by all means file the application. But there is now new evidence that the Inquest must first admit in order to help us find out the truth. We don't even know if the document is authentic or if the handwriting was TBH's.
For most of us, we don't even know if it's even a suicide note in the first place.
