Lawyer Gobind Singh says the Attorney-General should instead busy himself with investigations into the coronerâ€™s findings.
â€śDoes he want it to be suicide?â€ť asked Gobind Singh Deo, the familyâ€™s lawyer.
â€śI think the AG should tell us why is he filing a revision. What is he unhappy about?”
Coroner Azmil Muntapha Abas delivered an open verdict, saying Teohâ€™s death was neither suicide nor homicide.
Gobind, speaking at a press conference here, said the AG should instead direct investigations into the coronerâ€™s findings.
The inquest revealed weaknesses in police investigations into Teohâ€™s death, including a failure to find out how he got bruises in his neck.
He also questioned the rationale behind the governmentâ€™s decision to exclude the cause of death from the terms of reference of the royal commission of inquiry, as announced by Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak today.
Najib said the commission would study only the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commissionâ€™s (MACC) procedures to “determine whether there has been a violation of the human rights of Teoh Beng Hock during the investigationâ€ť.
Gobind said: “How are you going to ascertain the procedures did not violate Teoh’s human rights when we do not know what actually happened to him?”
He said he was “disturbed and disappointedâ€ť at the narrow scope of the inquiry.
“Why hold a royal commission now to look into the investigation procedures by the MACC? That aspect should have been looked into long ago. At the end of the day, everybody wants to know how Teoh died.”
Teoh Lee Lan, Beng Hockâ€™s sister, said the family was still hoping for a royal commission that would investigate her brotherâ€™s death.
Responding to Minister in Prime Ministerâ€™s Department Â Nazri Azizâ€™s call to the family to accept the coronerâ€™s decision, she said: â€śWould Nazri accept the decision if it was a member of his family who died?â€ť
