The wife of Teoh Beng Hock has described the months of anticipation waiting for the findings of the Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) into her husband's death as a “dream” that had just ended.
"Thanking" the RCI for allowing her at least to have false hopes that justice would be done over her husband's death, Soh Cher Wei (left) compared the findings of the commissioners a “slap” that had woken her from slumber.
"Thanks to the RCI for letting me dream for a few months. Now that I've been slapped (awake), it's time to rise," she said in a mobile text message to the press.Meanwhile, in Alor Gajah, Teoh's mother does not acept the RCI's finding that her son committed suicide.
Teng Huw Hoi, 58, said she does not believe her son committed suicide because he was a good person.
“I am a mother, I cannot accept that my son committed suicide,” she told Bernama when met at her home today.
Teng did not wish to comment further and said the family's lawyer would be making a statement on the matter.
She said she and her husband Teoh Leong Hwee and the other members of her family would be going to Kuala Lumpur later today to meet their lawyer.
