MALAYSIAN POLICE UNDER FIRE OVER DEATHS IN CUSTODY

0

KUALA LUMPUR: Truck driver N. Dhamendran entered a Malaysian police station on May 11 to record a statement over a scuffle he was involved in, and never came out alive. Ten days later, police produced the 32-year-old’s battered corpse, his ears grotesquely pierced with a stapler, and said he died of a heart attack. The case has brought new focus to a shocking and persistent scandal tarnishing Malaysia’s security forces—routine deaths at the hands of police widely viewed as corrupt and brutal.
