Rights Of The Dead – a film on custodial deaths

Follow us on our Malay and English WhatsApp, Telegram, Instagram, Tiktok and Youtube channels.

This forum discussed many aspects of institutional reforms to end deaths in custody, such as reforming the police force and the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission, setting up an independent police complaints and misconduct commission (IPCMC), coroners’ courts and an independent forensic institute.

The panel members also stressed the importance of freedom of information. Data must be made available to researchers and civil society organisations to get an accurate picture of deaths in custody.

Panel members:

  • Tricia Yeoh, the film director, former colleague of Teoh Beng Hock in the Selangor government, researcher and PhD candidate
  • Edmund Bon, former Malaysia representative to the Asean Inter-governmental Commission on Human Rights, member of the bar’s watching brief team at the Royal Commission of Inquiry on Teoh Beng Hock
  • Rama Ramanathan, blogger at write2rest.blogspot.com and spokesperson for Citizens Against Enforced Disappearances (Caged)
