Perhaps the interview should have been done at a five star hotel in town where the atmosphere would have been conducive and peaceful .

These lawyar buroks will pay for their " crime " they have committed to humanity . Just wait and see with your eyes .
Lawyers for Raja Azman Petra charged that the investigation conducted on the plight of their client by Suhakam had been neither fair nor thorough.
Yesterday the national human rights council Suhakam, had conducted an investigation at the Sungai Buloh prison of allegations that the son of prominent blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin had been tortured.
Siva Subramaniam, heading the investigation had cleared prison authorities of any wrongdoings and claimed that Raja Azman's wounds were self inflicted.
However, both lawyers J Chandra and Amarjit Singh Sidhu are unhappy over the way the investigation was carried out.
"Why are we not called for the investigation?" Amarjit asked.
Chandra expressed shock that the probe took place in the absence of Raja Azman's lawyers.
He explained that it was important for counsel to be present to ensure that the interview is conducted in the right manner.
"Inmates might be pressured to give answers just to appease the authorities," Chandra (left) said.
They explained that the intimidating nature of the prison environment for the inmates makes it difficult to get at the truth.
"The prison is not the right place for an interview because the inmates are afraid" Chandra said.
Amarjit concurred, saying that the interview should have been done in a place where the inmates are not afraid to voice out their grievances.
"But here, they are put under a microscope and everyone is watching and listening to what they have to say," Amarjit explained.
The interview should have been, Amarjit said conducted in a neutral place, perhaps at Suhakam's office.
He added that Raja Azman appeared cheerful probably due to fear of repercussions from the authorities once Suhakam members left.
