Coroner Rofiah Mohamad in reading out the ruling said the blunt chest trauma that led to Adib’s death was caused by an assault by more than two individuals.
She said the testimony of witnesses at the scene indicated that there had been an assault on someone in the area.
Rofiah said the court also accepted the testimony of United Kingdom-based senior consultant forensic pathologist Prof Dr Shahrom Abd Wahid, who said that Adib, was dragged out of a Fire & Rescue Department van and beaten.
Honestly, I never expected that verdict which was so obvious from the start of the case.
That's because I didn't believe that the inquest was even necessary as it was a clear cut case of Adib being killed by rioters at the temple.
Police just needed to get the rioters who beat up Adib there and then.
My lack of faith in the inquest at that time was also confounded by the conduct of the AG's Chamber, particularly concerning the representation of Adib's family.
But never mind all that now. The important thing is that the court has ruled that Adib was beaten to death and therefore the killers must be brought to justice.
The police must quickly catch them and the AG's Chamber must after that prosecute them.
If the AG's Chamber tries to be funny on this one, then we as Malaysians must take the government to task for its conduct.
The case is over eight-month-old now, lets not delay justice for Adib and his loved ones anymore.
