Malaysian Institutions Credibility Gap Huge

Things are not going well in Malaysia. Even the highly respectable Malaysian Bar Council warns of a breakdown of Malaysian Institutions which I would include the Police, MACC (Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission better known now as the Malaysian Agency for Cows and Cars), the Judiciary and many branches of the Malaysian Civil Service.

Take this for example. The CID (Criminal Investigations Department) director Datuk Seri Mohd Bakri Zinin claimed that with regards to the Kugan murder case, there is NO COVER UP. This is despite the fact that the first post-mortem attributed the cause of death to fluids in the lungs while the second post-mortem painted a completely different picture - death through beatings and kidney failure.

This is what Mohd Bakri said: "In Kugan’s case, we just received the second post-mortem report yesterday, and we had promptly acted on it by consulting the Attorney-General’s Chambers."

Would the mere consultation with the Attorney-General on receiving the second post-mortem means there was no cover up? How can there be no cover up when the picture painted by the authorities initially were so completely different from the picture obtained from the second post-mortem?
