|Sick of the sick politics?|
Thai forensic expert says no to PKR. We don't know if it's about the fees or if her life is at risk (which won't be for the first time), or maybe she has wisened up to the ways of some Malaysian politicians.

Sugumar: Political exploitation of a family's grief? By RJ
The sudden retraction by Thai pathologist Dr Pornthip Rojanasunand to do a second post-mortem on C.Sugumar is a slap in the face of people like N. Surendran of PKR.

PM Najib then ordered a forensic report be submited to the Cabinet.
Dr Pornthip, a high profile pathologist, must have made some preliminary inquiries before declining the brief. Could she have concluded that she did not wish to be embroiled in a political blame game?
And could she have concluded that Malaysians are up to the task of doing a professional job themselves?
Let's wait and see.
Until then, will Surendran and his cohorts please stop capitalising on a family's grief? - RJRJ writes extensively on political exploitation
