PUTRAJAYA: Any decision to reopen investigations into the death of Teoh Beng Hock must come from the Attorney-General's Chambers, says Home Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
He said police would only initiate fresh investigations should there be a directive to do so.
"This will have to come from Attorney-General's Chambers. So far there is no directive," he told reporters after presenting letters of approval for citizenship for 200 people on Thursday.
Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Mohamed Fuzi Harun also confirmed that his side had yet to receive any orders to reopen investigations.
Bukit Gelugor MP Ramkarpal Singh has asked that Muhyiddin direct the police to re-investigate Teoh's death.
Teoh, 30, fell to his death on July 16, 2009. He was found on the fifth floor corridor of Plaza Masalam in Shah Alam after giving a statement at the Selangor MACC’s office on the 14th floor of the building.
