nkf story - another outrage?

Huang Shoou Chyuan wrote a letter to the Today paper saying that the public is justified in being disappointed at how a high profile person like former NKF chairman Richard Yong could have escape the grasp of justice. Am I sensing another outrage by how events are turning out? S hould the people responsible be responsible? I think not. This kind of things don't happen everyday and it is only human to err. Just like the case of Cityspring, we are very new to such games. Even if Durai did not return will be a non issue. Never mind, let's move on. Super talents and super pay and making little slips are not related. There are more important things to do and take care of.

How did Richard Yong managed to do ie liquidate his assets that Tang Liang Hong, an experienced lawyer, could not do.

But now I am begining to look silly too.

Honestly, when a major mistake like that happens in a private company or MNC, heads rolled and people get the sack.

I am annoyed that Richard Yong could just leave his maid and dog behind.! Dogs will never leave their owners!!! The faithfulness shown by dogs will put homo sapiens to shame!!

Redbean, how sure are we that it was merely a slip or an honest mistake ? Mistakes such as this are more often associated with our third world asean neighbours rather than a first-world country like ours. Something just doesn't feel right.

let's look at the good side. imagine the buying and selling of all the properties, the money changing hands, the number of people involved, and no one breathe a word. and there were immediate buyers for his properties. surely the buyers knew what was going on.

this is a good example of the integrity of our professional people. at least we can tell the world that confidentiality of information and protection of confidentiality is first class in singapore. no one will dare violate and disclose confidential information even when they know something is wrong.

To anon june 7 11:34am,

Tang Liang Hong case was different, he was tailed by ISD and yet managed to escape by the skin of his teeth.
