KUALA LUMPUR: The police have been ordered to be transparent in investigating the death of Teoh Beng Hock.
Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said he would personally be monitoring the investigations and want the police to investigate everybody and everything.
This is a sad and unfortunate incident but the process of the law must take place without anyone speculating, accusing and politicising it. The truth must prevail, he said.
Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan, meanwhile, urged politicians and members of the public to refrain from spreading rumours regarding Teohs death.
He said the public should allow the police to complete their investigations and not jump to conclusions as unsubstantiated rumours would only create distrust and a tense situation.
We will not hesitate to act against anyone who spreads rumours claiming foul play. I assure them that there will be a thorough investigation and there will be no cover-up.
Dont politicise this issue. Dont act in any way that can cause public disorder and chaos, he warned.
