I apologize to all those who read this blog for cardiac information. I am very, very saddened by the totally unnecessary death of Mr Teoh. I wrote this letter to the editor of Star. Just in case they refuse to publish, I would like to publish it here. I would also like to ask all who love Malaysia, to show their protest, in whatever way they feel appropriate. Enough is enough. We cannot have innocent people die while in the custody of government institutions. Please forgive me for my outburst.

Dear Editor,
As a citizen of Malaysia, I am very, very sadden that Mr Teoh could die in the custody of the MACC. Firstly, my condolences to Mr Teoh's family and loved ones. Have no fear, Mr Teoh, your death will not be in vain. Mr Teoh will find justice, if not on this earth, surely in the hereafter. Secondly, why is there a need to interrogate someone who is not a criminal, who is only assisting in an investigation, till 3.30am in the morning?. Thirdly, why was he refused counsel? With only he and the MACC officers in the room, anything could happen and be covered up? We doctors need a chaperone whenever we examine a female patient, both to protect the patient and also to protect us. Why was Mr Teoh not allowed a counsel to be present, both to protect him and his rights and also to protect the " good" MACC, unless MACC intends foul play. How do you account for a political secretary, hale and healthy, probably very happy, about to be married, to die such a horrible death. We Malaysians would liike answers to all these questions. I support the call to have an independent investigation to into this untimely and cruel death of Mr Teoh. Who is next? How can this happen in Malaysia. Mr Prime Minister, Mr Government, enough is enough.
