Proceedings in Sarbaini's Case Is Hitting The Jackpot

I noticed in the last two days of the inquest in regards of the Ahmad Sarbaini's that several people have testified about events and analysis surrounding the death of that man has seem to reach the jackpot, as in my phrase. 

On Tuesday, the forensic pathologist said that he accidentally fell to his death.

Ahmad Sarbaini, the Selangor Customs assistant director, is believed to have fell from the third floor pantry of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) office in Jalan Cochrane here on April 6 and landed on the badminton court on the first floor.

Associate professor Dr Faridah Mohd Noor, a forensic pathologist and lecturer at Hospital Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia had conducted the post-mortem on Ahmad Sarbaini on April 6.

Faridah tells Ahmad Sarbaini’s family lawyer Awtar Singh that it was “accidental death based on the injuries and circumstantial evidence.”

The autopsy showed multiple abrasions, lacerations and bone fractures, on his head, face, hands, legs, knees and elbow, including severe brain damage.

Faridah concluded based on the post-mortem that Ahmad Sarbaini had died from severe head injuries and positional asphyxia due to fall from height.

Positional asphyxia is a form of asphyxia that occurs when someone’s position prevents them from breathing adequately. In this case, Faridah explained that Ahmad Sarbaini’s breathing was blocked by the bleeding in his mouth and nose.

Today, another pathologist said that he slipped and fell:
The lead forensic pathologist in the death of Ahmad Sarbaini Mohamed told the inquest today that the Customs officer had slipped and fell to his death at the offices of the national graftbusters.

Ahmad Sarbaini, the Selangor Customs assistant director, is believed to have fallen from the third floor pantry of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) office in Jalan Cochrane here on April 6 and landed on the badminton court on the first floor.

Professor Dr Shahrom Abd Wahid, 54, is the lead forensic pathologist for the case and a forensic pathology lecturer at Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia. He told the court he was involved in the overall supervision of the autopsy and crime scene investigations.

“The re-enactment by the stuntman showed it was probable for the deceased person to have fallen backward when his right foot slipped from the window lower ledge and the left foot reactively kicked the edge of the ledge,” he said in the post-mortem report, citing a diagonal white paint mark on Ahmad Sarbaini’s left shoe sole.
If we go back to the Malaysia Today's expose on the MACC's case with Sarbaini, part 7, you would notice at one point he was forced to do so by Mohd Fauzi Husin, the Chief Investigation Unit of KL MACC:

Sheikh Niza brought Ahmad Sarbaini to KUS Mohd Fauzi's office, which was next door to the pantry (remember what happened to Teoh Beng Hock). Here, he was verbally abused. KUS Mohd Fauzi called Ahmad Sarbaini a disgrace to the Royal Malaysian Customs, that he was not fit to wear their uniform. Rather shaken up, Ahmad Sarbaini pleaded for pity and a drink of water.

Shockingly, they brought Ahmad Sarbaini to the pantry. Incredibly, as punishment for attempting to retract his ‘confession’, Mohd Fauzi ordered him to climb out of the window and forced him to stand on the ledge. 

KUS Mohd Fauzi wanted Ahmad Sarbaini to ponder and reflect on his actions while standing on the edge as “orang macam kau ni lebih baik mati dari hidup menyusahkan orang lain”.

Nervously, Ahmad Sarbaini climbed onto the windowsill as ordered by Mohd Fauzi who continued taunting and abusing him with insults. Sheikh Niza merely looked on. In that split second, Ahmad Sarbaini’s belt got stuck on the outer part of the window and he lost his balance and his life.

And, horror of horrors, what happened to Teoh Beng Hock happened to Ahmad Sarbaini when he fell to his death onto the badminton court below.

Even if the inquest would go on and so, Sarbaini's thing has already hit the jackpot. The MT's expose has matched what the two pathologists have testified in the last two days. Two weeks ago, Shafee Abdullah, a.k.a Mr. Fixit said that Raja Petra's claim is nonsense. But now the testimony by those two doctors have already matched with the claim. So who's really lying? "He is history," claimed Shafee but behold of the chips revealed.
