Malaysia's Tragicomedy Court Case

Apart from NameWee's video clip that has provoked a storm of protests as well as and outpouring of support, the video clips that have become immensely popular, all for the wrong reason, are the antics of the Deputy Public Prosecutor for the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission during the inquest into the cause of death of Teo Beng Hock, a political aide to a Member of Parliament. The question that persistently pops up in the mind is why didn't the MACC send someone more capable in arguing the case that has generated so much negative perception for the MACC? What is the real intention of MACC? To show that the ongoing inquest is a charade? Whatever the intention, it will be a shameful reminder of the incompetence and lackadaisical approach of MACC. The first part alone had 147,000 hits.
