This is the latest to take place this morning in the court. Kugan's mother, Indra, 41, "has no locus standi to apply for the remains and specimens of her son Kugan..." said the DPP.

Here's the full story in The Star Online :

I wonder why is the government so afraid to let the Kugan's family access to the independent post-mortem results and specimens which the mother paid for anyway for UMMC to conduct the seond independent post-mortem.

p.s. This is a community issue and not a political issue, please discuss with decorum and not flame this thread, thanks in advance.

Very saddened by this turn of events. The post-mortem results were seized from the family :(

Nonetheless, the post-mortem report has been scanned and is readily available online.

People should all donate to a legal fund for Kugan and let the family take up a civil case against the authorities if they do not want to convene a Royal Commission of Inquiry or at least an inquest.

Hey Bob, can you help point someone out (Hannah, maybe since Kugan died in Subang Jaya) to start the legal fund?

That is why I support the establishment of IPCMC!

I'm just wondering....if our courts can grant a 'no locus standi' to the mother of the deceased who requested and paid for the post mortem....THEN...

How would a civil case help? Other then bring it back into the public's view who will eventually give following the long drawn out case as the MSM pushes it deeper and deeper into an already oversized tabloid.

The court might rule that Kugan's mother might not have locus standi in claiming for his autopsy / post-mortem report but the mother has locus standi to file a civil suit against the 11 policemen and the police force and the government for causing her son's death while in custody / detention. In the civil suit, she can call upon the autopsy report as evidence plus other witnesses including foreign specialists.

Remember.. the Attorney General went on record classifying Kugan's death in custody as MURDER.

Good point. If its evidence, then it can be subpoenaed.

Murder.. Homicide... Killing.... whatever way you call it, someone must be held responsible for it... question is - who?? :rolleyes:
