April 17, 2014 Karpal Singh Malaysian Opposition Leader Killed In Car Crash  Kuala Lumpur: Malaysia's veteran ethnic-Indian lawyer and lawmaker Karpal Singh, who defended opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim in his sensational sodomy trial, was killed today in a road accident. Singh, 73, and one of his longtime associates were killed early this morning when the car they were traveling in rammed into a lorry/truck, shearing off the left side of the MPV/minivan. His assistant Michael Cornandez was also killed while two others, his son Ram Singh and an Indonesian maid, were seriously injured. Singh's driver claimed the slow moving truck suddenly changed lanes and swerved into their path before he could brake. The truck driver who was with family members tested positive for marijuana use, but police discouraged "conspiracy theories" that Singh had been targeted for opposing extreme Islamic hudud laws, and the slow moving truck driver was somehow at fault. Singh's driver had dozens of speeding violations on his record himself. Singh was previously crippled in a 2005 accident when his taxi was rammed from behind from another car.
