It’s the middle of the week: too close to Monday, too far from Friday. We’re proud to bring you Jilian Ng’s Malaysia-nomics (taking over from Antares’ Midweek Folk Wisdom) every Wednesday for the next two months. The pen of this young university student pokes gentle fun at current issues with charm and bite. A small taste of the intelligence that lives on in bright young Malaysians – YUMMEH!

Malaysian Insider (Dec 10, 2010): The ‘Sosilawati murder case’ remains widely followed in Malaysia as it is the second most searched news story in a list of popular local headlines.

The Sun (Dec 17, 2010): The Coroner’s Court has set Jan 5 to deliver its decision on the inquest into the death of Selangor political aide Teoh Beng Hock which has dragged on for more than a year.

Teoh, political secretary to Selangor executive councilor Ean Yong Hian Wah, was found dead on July 16 last year on the fifth floor corridor of Plaza Masalam here after he had given a statement at the office of the Selangor Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) located on the 14th floor of the same building. He was 30.

The inquest was held because Teoh’s death raised questions, especially when he had died several hours after being questioned by the MACC on alleged misuse of Selangor government allocations.

Initially, it was thought that the inquest would be completed in a month but it dragged on until Nov 4 this year, and heard the testimonies of 37 witnesses, among them several MACC officers and well-known Thai pathologist Dr Pornthip Rojanasunand.
