“The report also indicates that Syamil was shot on the forehead at a 45-degree angle ... That can only happen if the boy was kneeling when he was gunned down." - PKR lawyer N. Surendran
IN WHAT IS BY FAR ONE OF THE MOST DAMNING ACCUSATIONS made against the Royal Malaysian Police, lawyer N. Surendran openly challenged the police to prove that the three youths they gunned down last year were not killed execution style by the cops. Surendran said he got copies of the post-mortem report which suggested that the youths were shot dead at close range by the police. The 1968 pix of this brutal police execution of an alleged Vietcong guerilla came to my mind. Scary. What's even more scary is the cops are not responding quickly and firmly to this very serious accusation.
Surendran made the allegation at a press conference at the PKR headquarters attended by relatives of the youths and several politicians [Read H E R E.] who did not have to be there but that's besides the point, as the point is such a serious accusation, especially coming from a lawyer, must be substantiated. Surendran must lodge a police report and provide proof as soon as possible so that action can be taken as soon as possible.
The PDRM must respond immediately to the allegation. The AG's Chamber need to comment. Home Minister, please speak up, we can't hear you. Keeping mum is NOT an option when you are being accused of harboring killers in uniform!
