MACC Downfall

I love the way that the sudden death of a local political aide is referred to in TheStar. You must wonder at the kind of brilliant writers that work there.

Selangor exco’s aide falls to death.
SHAH ALAM: A man died after having fallen off Plaza Masalam here where the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has its office on the 14th floor.
The man is believed to be Teoh Beng Hock, political secretary to Selangor executive council member Ean Yong Hian Wah, who was taken in for questioning by the MACC Wednesday evening.

They make it sound like he decided to step out off an open window to take a stroll along the outside of the building, breathing in a lung-full of fresh hazy air and enjoying the spectacular view from up high, before sneezing and falling to his death. Wow, who says that Malaysians have a weak grasp of the English language!
