I have been following the Woffles Wu case with interest and can only say I'm quite dissatisfied with both the Law Minister and AGC's response. It sounds like they tried to sweep it under the carpet but there was a persistent person who pushed it, and AGC would not even have bothered to prosecute if not for that person.
I still can't believe it has taken 6-7 years for this to be prosecuted and that the police are still investigating the speeding offence. What are they waiting for? A time travel machine? Do they take so much time for EVERY speeding offence? Is it going to take them 3 years for a parking ticket? Was it being delayed until a statute of limitations ran out? Is the AGC really impartial or were there special connections of Mr. Wu?
It seems that there are now separate laws for the well-connected and rich in Singapore, who can already hire expensive lawyers to help defend them. Is this what Singapore has come down to?
