According to Malaysian mirror.com, ADUN Batu Lintang, Voon Lee San from DAP has called on the government to get help from FBI or the Scotland yard vis-a-vis case of Teoh. This suggestion is another populist idea but not fully thought out. It is unfortunate that this man seemed not to understand the meaning of national integrity and sovereignty. It simply means that Malaysia is a fully democratic nation and a firm believer in the Rule of Law.
We have not heard of Indonesia or Singapore using the services of the FBI belonging to USA, to investigate their citizens respectively. FBI has its own charter to operate within the boundries of USA. This also applies to Scotland yard which will only investigate cases of British citizens' criminal activities' , in the third country.
ADUN Voon should be more prudent in making suggestions because foreigners and diplomats in Kuala Lumpur will regard them as comical. Senior party members of DAP should not allow their members to be loose canons because this will only reflect bad taste and disrespect for love of independence and nationhood.
Any patriotic Malaysian will rebuff Voon's wild proposition which tantamounts to insulting public intelligence,government and the police. For information, the CID of PDRM has progressed substantially in the investigation of this case. Therefore, it is best that the public acknowledges this and to allow the Malaysian police to complete this difficult task.
