Yesterday, the Teoh Beng Hock Trust for Democracy sought to trigger a police investigation into the alleged criminal conduct of anti-corruption officers implicated in the former DAP aide’s 2009 death. 

TBHTD lodged a police report at the Petaling district police headquarters to accuse 10 MACC officers of criminal conspiracy, abetment to cover up, as well as the fabrication and destruction of evidence. And it also accused five of murder or, alternatively, culpable homicide. 

Spokesperson Ng Yap Hwa said the report should allow the police to investigate the matter after both the MACC and Attorney-General’s Chambers deferred to the law enforcement agency.

“We have been waiting for more than 10 years and wanted justice for Teoh (right) and his family”, he said. 

Ng expressed the hope that the police will treat the investigation with urgency and transparency, and that they will be guided by the Court of Appeal ruling that concluded the MACC were criminally culpable for Teoh’s death.

On Saturday, in the Scottish Premiership game between Celtic and Motherwell, the former walloped the latter 5-2. 

Celtic’s five goals came from Kristoffer Ajer (14), Leigh Griffiths (41), James Forrest (66), Odsonne Edouard (76) and Ryan Christie (86, penalty) – as they took their goal tally to 12 after the first two league fixtures. 

I can't ask for any more than that! Celtic are strikingly sensational!
