Was Dato Patrick Wong Murdered? (Updated)

 My Deepest Sympathy to the Family of Dato Patrick Wong.

Was inform that Intruders broke into his house in Bangsar last night, they were armed with Parangs and knifes and that the good Dato Patrick Wong was killed due to this incident.

Receives a sms message from Haris Ibrahim easrlier that reads; "Dato Patrick Wong, a strong supporter of the many efforts to bring change to Malaysia was attacked by intruders this morning, and has passed away."

Hope to be back with the full story later.

The wake will be at:
9, Lorong Kemaris 1
Bukit Bandaraya
59100 Kuala Lumpur

You can visit Dato Patrick Wong's  facebook HERE.

Update (1:26am): Just returned from the wake and went out to supper with some of the guys. We did not think it appropriate to disturb Datin Cindy for an account of the incident at this time but in conclusion Dato Patrick Wong is a victim of a brutal crime. This is the state of the nation today...You are not safe even at Home. Our country is in such tragic state that there is record breaking numbers dying unnecessarily and the government must take responsibility for their failure to provide basic security and safety for its people.

I am truly very ANGRY! There are so many victims of crime everyday and yet our government seems at a loss, they don't understand the scenario, they can't protect the people and they don't know what to do.Malaysians today live in FEAR for the safety of their family.

And i just read another story of a victim that just happen today, this lady was another victim of snatch thief and this time the snatch thief whack her on the head with a hammer. What is this country coming to?
The story from the Star HERE

PS. Dato Patrick Wong's funeral will be this Sunday. And as i have said in facebook today that Dato's death will not be in vain! Watch out for an announcement in this blog, this coming Sunday as a tribute to Dato Patrick Wong.

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 20 — A former president of the Master Builders Association Malaysia (MBAM), Datuk Patrick Wong, died yesterday, three days after he was admitted to hospital due to serious injuries sustained in a robbery at his house in Lorong Kemaris 1, Bukit Bandaraya, Bangsar here.

Wong, 57, died at about 9.45am at the Pantai Medical Center and the body was then taken to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital for a post-mortem.

In the robbery which happened three days ago, Wong fell from the first floor of his two-storey bungalow while attempting to escape and get help after three men broke into his house.

Crime Investigation Department head Datuk Ku Chin Wah said the incident happened when Wong's 25-year-old daughter and the family maid, who were in the kitchen, were approached by three men who were armed with machetes.

"One suspect waited on the ground while two others went upstairs. Wong was then in his computer room while his son was in the shower," he told reporters.

Police believe Wong slipped and fell after he stepped on the window railing on the first floor of the house while attempting to escape and get help.

Ku said the suspects fled with a wallet, a handphone and RM300 belonging to Wong's daughter after Wong fell.

He urged those with information on the incident to contact the nearest police station.

Wong was elected MBAM president for the term June 2006 to June 2008.

He played an active role in encouraging Bumiput3ra contractors, building services contractors, building material suppliers and manufacturers to enrol as MBAM members.

In recognition of his contributions to the progress and development of MBAM, Wong was conferred the Kesatria Mangku Negara (KMN) award by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong in 2002.

He was conferred the Datukship by the Sultan of Pahang last year. — Bernama

See.. this is the thing. There are Malaysians, be they politicians or otherwise who have the time and money to 'set up' systems to trap Ministers in compromising situations in hotel rooms. WHY cant they set up ways to trap corrupt policemen who are bribed by the criminals who are caught or trap the great ministers who are responsible for our safety n security? why cant they find out who are the top policemen taking bribes from drug dealers and these criminals instead of trying to find out who is screwing whom!!!
