Revnesh’s case: Stop the baloney and let the mother get an independent review, NGO says

WE will not accept this nonsensical post-mortem report on the untimely demise of N Revnesh Kumar and will press for an independent review, Global Human Rights Federation said.  

“The health officials took 50 days to come up with this rubbish conclusion on the teenager’s death. I see this nothing but an attempt to sweep things under the carpet. 

“For argument’s sake, if Revnesh’s death was not linked to the vaccine, then what was the cause?” its president S Shashi Kumar queried, when contacted by FocusM.  

Earlier today, Klang MP Charles Santiago said that late Revnesh’s mother, G Vijayarani was called by the Kajang Hospital to get her son’s autopsy report.  

In a series of tweets, it seems that the doctors had attempted to convince the mother to accept the finds after going through the report with her.  

“But in our conversation, she remains unconvinced as the post-mortem report failed to indicate the cause of son’s death.  

“She is convinced the report needs to be challenged & calls for an independent body to review KKM’s (Health Ministry) preliminary report due to what she describes as ‘discrepancies’ in the doctor’s explanation.  

“She wants justice for her child and also to prevent this from happening to other families. I, therefore, call upon KKM to support Vijayarani’s call for an independent review of the post mortem report so that she could get some closure and also to assure other parents that the vaccine is safe for their children,” the DAP leader mentioned.  

On Jan 16, Revnesh collapsed and died in an apartment lift, 18 days after he received his first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine on Dec 30.  

A non-governmental organisation (NGO), Malaysia Tamilar Munnetra Kalagam alleged that when Revnesh’s body was taken to the Serdang Hospital for autopsy, they found neither organ damage nor infections.   

However, a soft tissue behind the walls of Revnesh’s heart had hardened.  

A police report was lodged by Revnesh’s parents at Precinct 7, Putrajaya on Feb 1 as they believed that their son’s death was related to his first dose of the vaccine. 

Following uproar, Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin and MOH director-general Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah had a meeting with Vijayarani and her husband L Naresh Kumar, promising to look into the matter.  

Yesterday, Shashi Kumar and several other NGOs delivered a memorandum to the MOH, urging the former to come clean on what caused Revnesh’s death. They also demanded the Government not to force those below the age of 18 to get the COVID-19 vaccines and stop compelling adults into getting their boosters.  

Also present in the peaceful gathering yesterday were representatives from the Muslim Consumer Association of Malaysia (PPIM) and Malaysia Tamilar Munnetra Kalagam 


Don’t let the parents hanging   

Touching on the latest development, Shashi Kumar reminded the MOH that the initial probe into the 13-year-old’s remains found nothing wrong with the teenager’s organs. However, a soft tissue behind his heart had hardened.  

He added that this was not the only case as in Sept last year, there were reports on two deaths allegedly linked to COVID-19 vaccine involving SMK Tasek Damai students, which were promptly denied by Perak police chief Datuk Mior Faridalthrash Wahid.  

Shashi Kumar urged the authorities to reveal the CCTV footage of the apartment lift, where Revnesh had collapsed and died.  

“The boy was holding his heart before he fell down and died,” he claimed. 

The NGO leader then vowed to get to the bottom of the matter and urged Khairy to be transparent on the case.  

“Our question is simple. If Revnesh’s death is not linked to the vaccine, then what caused it? Don’t leave the poor parents hanging like that,” Shashi Kumar remarked. 

On Jan 15, Noor Hisham announced that his team had detected 25 cases of heart inflammation (Myocarditis) in the first 21 days after an individual received their COVID-19 vaccines.  

“Of the number, 14 cases involve Corminaty (Pfizer), nine involving Sinovac and two more from AstaraZeneca,” Malaysiakini reported him as saying. – March 10, 2022
