What A Dumbass!

If the Philippine Police became the laughing stock of their counterparts worldwide, the government prosecuting lawyers in Malaysia joins them.

If you're not familiar with what transpired, just Google the MACC Chief Prosecutor's name - Abdul Razak Musa - and you'll find lots of articles on how made a fool of himself and a how he ridiculed the already tarnished legal profession.

In a nutshell, while he was questioning the renowned Thai pathologist Dr Pornthip Rojanasunand in the inquest on the death of Teoh Beng Hock, Abdul Razak contended that the deceased killed himself through strangulation.

This is how the conversation went:

AR Musa: “I put it to you that there was no foul play involved and that Teoh strangled himself to death because of depression. I’ll give all of us a little demonstration as to how he did it”

Dr.Pornthip: “It is impossible for a person to strangulate himself to death with a tie or for that matter kill oneself by holding one’s breath. I suggest you nail your tie to a height of about 8 feet on the courtroom’s door and let gravity help you out.”

AR Musa: “Look, my face is already turning blue from this demo and I strongly feel that it is possible that he did it this way. I reiterate my stand that he died of self-strangulation and I suggest you change you conclusion. I asked you again. Is it possible that Teoh could have taken his life this way !”

Dr.Pornthip: “Yes, I would certainly come to such a conclusion if he was a student practicing law under your tutelage.”

What an ass! And seriously, outright shameful!
