Cabinet to mull royal panel for Teoh's death

IPOH, July 18 — The Cabinet's next meeting will discuss the growing call for a Royal Commission of Inquiry into political secretary's Teoh Beng Hock's death that has sparked an outcry over enforcement agencies' interrogation techniques and perceived persecution of opposition parties.

Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said here the cabinet will study various views before making a decision.

As his regular practise, DAP strongman Lim Kit Siang yesterday called for a Royal Commission of Inquiry to investigate Teoh's death and it quickly found support from opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and politicians from across the divide.
