Deaths in Custody: We have not forgotten
ON July 16, 2009, two citizens died within hours of each other while in custody of the authorities. Teoh Beng Hock and P Gunasegaran – they were among the 1,805 individuals who died in custody from 2003 to July 16 that year.
In the 36 months that followed, more have perished while in the houses of authority, where no undue harm is a supposed guarantee. People, it has not stopped. Healthy sons and fathers have emerged in bodybags.
For the third year running, on the anniversary of the deaths of Teoh Beng Hock and P Gunasegaran, please join us in remembering those who have died in custody and weigh the grief of those who survive them. As in previous years, we shall be sprinkling flowers in a simple act of remembrance.
