SHAH ALAM: The Coroner's Court today ruled out suicide in the death of Selangor political aide Teoh Beng Hock in 2009.

In his verdict, Coroner Azmil Muntapha Abas, who heard the inquest from July 29, 2009, also said there was no third-party involvement in the death.

Teoh, political secretary to Selangor executive councillor Ean Yong Hian Wah, was found dead on July 16, 2009 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 on the 14th floor of the same building.

The inquest was held after questions were raised over whether it was suicide or homicide, especially since the 30-year-old political aide he had been questioned the same day by the commission on alleged misuse of Selangor government allocations.

Teoh's family has meanwhile indicated that they will be filing a revision against the court's decision and push for a royal commission of inquiry.
