Raja Petra made certain claims of Sarbaini's death. We reproduced his chronology and description of without his embelishment:
Sheikh Niza brought Ahmad Sarbaini to KUS Mohd Fauzi's office, which was next door to the pantry. Here, he was verbally abused.The main fault with RPK's story was that MACC had no problem with Ahmad Sarbaini wishing to change his statement.
... they brought Ahmad Sarbaini to the pantry. ... 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 ...
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.
...Ahmad Sarbaini when he fell to his death onto the badminton court below.
.... KUS Mohd Fauzi called everyone into his room to brainstorm and to concoct the most plausible story. ... the best storyline was that Ahmad Sarbaini had committed suicide as he was depressed that his confession could not be retracted. The Director, Hj Mohd Yusof, was also brought into the loop and the approval from HQ sought.....
To ensure that there was no evidence as to what really happened, they erased the CCTV recordings. That was why the police audio-visual forensics analyst, ASP Fauziah Che Mat, told the Coroner that the CCTV recordings had been tampered with.
It became a problem to Ahmad Sarbaini when MACC wanted to do on the spot verification for the changes. That made Ahmad Sarbaini panicked and attempted to run via the pantry but ... (see extract from The Star dated July 5th 2011):
Speaking to reporters after the hour-long site-visit, counsel for the family members, Awtar Singh said the group went to see the badminton court where the deceased's body was found, the pantry, the room in which Ahmad Sarbani was interrogated and the surau.Extract of The Malaysian Insider reporting Shafeee Adbullah below:
He said he also did a "demonstration", where he tried putting his leg over the pantry window sill without leaning on the nearby sink.
"It was not easy," he said.
MACC lawyer Datuk Seri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah also spoke to reporters, saying the site-visit was significant as the inquest had previously only been able to rely on photographs, which did not give a "3D idea of how things happened".
"What everybody agreed though, is that from the pantry window, the roof to the left looks so near that you think you can jump on to it. But it's an optical illusion.
"The roof is about 3m (10ft) away, but you'll only realise this when you're already out of the window, by which time it might already be too late," Muhammad Shafee said.
He added that the inquest also went into the CCTV room, which showed all the CCTVs working.
Tegas beliau, adalah mustahil untuk Sarbaini keluar dan berdiri di atas tingkap bilik pantri seperti mana yang didakwa Raja Petra.Being abroad in London, RPK does not know what is happening here in Malaysia. HE does not have the benefit of getting information direct from sources.
“Tiada sesiapa boleh bertenggek atas tingkap atau berdiri, yang boleh hanya berdiri di luar tingkap dan ia kita dah tunjukkan (dalam lakon semula kejadian).
“Kalau Raja Petra boleh, saya minta dia buat (berdiri atas tingkap),” katanya.
He can only embellish a story but he has no way to check if it is realistic. As expected, Ahmad Sarbaini's family reaction to demand investigation to RPK's version is only natural.
RPK is only interested to instill doubts and douse public anger arouse on the various authorities and public institution.
