I was with Petaling Jaya Utara MP Tony Pua at his office in Damansara Jaya on 11/8/2010 at about 6pm when he first saw the envelope which contained the death threat and a live M16 bullet.
To ensure not to compromise the evidence, we used office stationery materials to deal with the envelope, and subsequently we placed it on a piece of newspaper to be brought directly to Damansara Jaya Police station.
At the police station, despite being informed of the suspicious circumstances of the envelop and the threat contained therein, the police used their bare hands to handle the envelope, passing it around the letter in the police station from one curious police to another. Their conducts have raised questions whether the police investigation is flawed from the beginning.
It does not take a forensic scientist to know that the police’s shoddy action has definitely compromised 90%, if not all, of the evidence, thus it is redundant for the police to have Tony and his aide’s DNA samples and fingerprints taken yesterday.
The police said the DNA samples and fingerprints were required to ensure that Tony and his aide did not send the package. However, I doubt the real reason for their evidence to be taken, a week after the statutory police report was made.Related news: http://thestar.com.my/news Pua & aide give DNA samples in probe over death threat
