Words of a grieving parent

“I can feel how my son suffered before he died. I can feel that. Really, I can’t take it.” – Mdm Selvi, mother of the late Dinesh Raman who died in prison on 27 September 2010.

How can the State and its judicial system not see the need to let a grieving parent and the rest of the family members know what exactly happened behind the death of a loved one?

How can the system be so non-transparent about the facts, especially when they run on public funds and has a responsibility to answer to all of us?

We currently have 543 signatures on the petition to call upon the Coroner to re-open the inquiry into the death of Dinesh Raman. If you would like to join us in the call, kindly visit the following link to have your name added to the petition:

The biggest question now, is who has custody of the CCTV tapes. I will not be surprised if they declare that the CCTV were not turned on or the tapes have been destroyed, if the appeal succeeds. You can smell the rat a mile away
