There is no need to establish a Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) into the death of Selangor Customs assistant director Ahmad Sarbani Mohamed as requested by his family, said Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister Department Datuk Liew Vui Keong. He said an inquest into the matter, which is scheduled to be held from July 4 to 15, was adequate.
“However, if any party feels they want a Royal Commission of Inquiry, they can apply for it,” he told Lim Lip Eng (DAP-Segambut).
It was reported that Ahmad Sar­baini was found dead on the first floor of the MACC building on April 6. He was among 62 Customs personnel under investigation by the MACC for alleged corruption and money laundering.
He had gone to the MACC headquarters on April 6 just days after he was released on bail. About two hours after entering the building, he was found dead in a badminton court on the first floor landing.
