PETALING JAYA: Five people, including Selangor lawmaker Ean Yong Hian Wah and former assemblyman M. Manoharan, have been called up by the police in connection with the reopened investigation into the death of Teoh Beng Hock, said Comm Datuk Noor Azam Jamaludin.

The Selangor police chief said the police had recorded the statements of the duo along with three others in the course of the probe.

“We will also call up Tricia Yeoh, who has raised certain issues pertaining to the case, as published in a local newspaper on July 17.“Several other witnesses, including from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), will also be called up soon for their statements to be recorded, ” he said in a statement yesterday.

Yeoh managed the case of Teoh’s death on behalf of the Selangor state government in 2009.

She was a research officer to then Selangor mentri besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim.

On June 27 last year, Home Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin informed his ministry of the Cabinet’s decision to reopen the case and instructed the Inspector-General of Police to take immediate action.

The Attorney General also issued certain instructions to the task force on Dec 17,2018, and the investigation is still ongoing.
