Based from what the Newspaper article statement:

“HE WAS both a brilliant student, and a loner who loved his manga comics and World of Warcraft.
David Hartanto Widjaja was in his final year at the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and, in the words of a fellow undergraduate at the Nanyang Technological University (NTU), shoo-in “first class honours material”. After all, he’d represented Indonesia in the International Mathematical Olympiad in 2005, and taken part in his country’s National Science Olympics the year before.”

At that age of a man, he is no longer a boy with unstable emotional feeling who has ended his brilliant mind that way, what would have happened to him, will still become an untold story – which will never be uncovered.

What is the actual fact that might have insulted or intimated “the boy”, and why would he do such thing to an honourable professor whom the article stated as:
“Prof Chan, who joined NTU in 1992 and serves as deputy director of its Biomedical Engineering Research Centre, is said to be in stable condition. The attack stunned Prof Chan’s former students. Ms Stephanie Ng, who graduated in 2007, said Prof Chan “was a fair teacher who was friendly, got along well with students and was not the kind who comes off as stern”.

There’s always one side of the story which is always covered.

 Well, our top criminal lawyer who is also president of the ACLS’ news article – has been called as misleading by Singapore’s Ministry of Law, there is not specifically mentioned, whether that declaration of ‘misleading’ statement, came from Law Minister himself or came from the ministry.

Again, another government ministry trying to assure to the society people on the street in Singapore that everybody is equal in the eyes of the Law in Singapore… Here is the assurance and the official reply from Ministry of Law in Singapore:

Remember my published article previously on yesterday, on the ‘law for the poor’ and ‘law for the rich’ – and the writer demands an explicit (and easy to understand – I supposed) answer from related body.. not the busy-body obviously.

And the answer is not only one, two, or even three… but they are all total live-streaming of answers everywhere, even in online news #1 website in Singapore. Here is the latest…

On which he mentioned… “Professor Woon argued that a common scenario is for the courts to refuse to let the accused settle privately with the victim in simple cases. In such cases, the fine goes to court and the victim is no better off financially.”

But then he admitted… “Outlining the scenarios under which his office prosecutes, Prof Woon stressed that while compensation naturally favours richer people, the judge acts as a final check as to whether this can be allowed, as long as public interest is not adversely affected.” – well, there is a word ‘naturally’ there, so it is not mandatory.

And he stressed that “We don’t consider whether someone is rich, certainly not – or politically well-connected. We cannot conduct prosecutions on the basis that some people are above the law. Certainly we don’t conduct prosecutions on the basis that the rich and well-connected get away with it.” – the interesting part is, I can’t remember whether it was questioned before on this part, but he included the “politically well-connected” as the status or position of the person, in this case offenders or defenders – off course.

And here are the other various responses as published in TODAY newspaper…

Now, don’t you realize that so many answer responses from various several bodies in the above articles, don’t you have something in mind that there might be some “panics” somewhere in their offices, discussing and story-telling or perhaps fine-tune the radio singing song on what they should answer from whose side, and who should be taking action on what part…

Or they need to wait for committee to start first before everyone else start taking any action like simply giving an umbrella under the rains… 🙂

This is our country called Singapore, my friend, as long as nobody touch your pocket-money, then stick to your nose, keep quite, don’t be busy-body… and the best is… don’t bother.

When I first read this article today morning, I was laughing out loud while I was waiting for my bus to come, until people surrounding me (well, as usual, kiasu n kiasi) are starring at me, probably they almost call 999 – to grab me in.

Hahahahaha… what took you so long to see it, buddy?

But this article, is really impressive comes direct straight from the most powerful criminal lawyer of Singapore, Mr. Subhas Anandan himself.

He said “if there is no satisfactory answers are forthcoming, you cannot blame the man in the street for thinking that there is one law for the rich and one for the poor” – which one stern examples was when wife of Venture Corp head Wong Ngit Leong, slapped Singapore Airlines Stewardess based on jealousy that she was attending and be nice to her husband on board Singapore Airlines flight – there was NOTHING made public all arrangement and settlement about this case.

While for the road rage incidents, the culprit was fined $1,000 but the victim lost the compensation of $8,000 and all these things are made known to public widely.

Here is the article:

Ironic, as always, plenty of inconsiderate moves done in Singapore, when plenty of people are in misery of retrenchment worries, and the new commitment ‘Always for Singaporeans’ policy – Singapore’s very owned Civil Servant are talking about 4.3% wage increase.

“Saving jobs” are now becoming more and more trendy phrase to be used in Singapore’s ministry, as their powerfull motto for their locals in Singapore.

Singapore, if only you know who are the most generous contributors (without ever taking any single cents back from it) to your own pocket money to be given freely to your very own citizens as ‘growth dividend’, ‘GST Rebates’ and so on… probably you’ll be more thankful then the ‘Be Thankful’ guy has ever been in his life.

Well well… here is the new commitment made public based on the ‘Always for Singaporeans’ policy that they have in hands, xenophobia.

And the above shocking article has received an ‘endorsement’ direct from Prime Minister himself as in the following article news flash below.

Article on ‘Xenophobia’ which is taken from Wikipedia:

Xenophobia is an intense dislike and/or fear of people from other countries. It comes from the Greek words ξένος (xenos), meaning “foreigner,” “stranger,” and φόβος (phobos), meaning “fear.” The term is typically used to describe a fear or dislike of foreigners or of people significantly different from oneself.

As of the current and previous experience in Social Harmony living in Singapore, foreigners are always be in the ‘exile’ in this country, cast-away from society, never even close to warm-welcome by the local people in Singapore’s infamous ‘social harmony’ worth of living environment.

Plus the two above articles made public in a free newspaper and the ‘No.1 News Channel’ in Singapore – The Channel NewsAsia news website, have made another gaps become bigger and bolder.

So my dear foreigners, do you still want to contribute to economy by working in Singapore and have some level of confidence on Singapore? – I’m sure you still will 🙂
