Dr Woffles Wu got CHARGED finally

PLEASE CHECK THE COURT NUMBER AT THE SINGAPORE SUBORDINATES COURTS NOTICE BOARD OR ALTERNATIVELY ASK AT THE INFORMATION COUNTER AT THE SINGAPORE SUBORDINATES COURTS.
Prominent plastic surgeon Woffles Wu has been charged in court for getting an employee to take the rap for him for two speeding offences.
According to a Straits Times news report, Wu had allegedly abetted Kuan Yit Wah to lie to the police that he was the driver of Wu’s car on two occasions the car was caught for speeding.
The first offence happened in September 2005. Mr Kuan, then 76, allegedly lied to traffic police that he was the driver of a car caught speeding along Lornie Road.
The car was travelling at 95kmh on a road with a 70kmh limit.
The second incident happened in November 2006. The car was going 91kmh in a 70kmh zone along Adam Road.
The paper reported that both incidents involved Wu’s car but court documents did not say who the driver of the car was.
Wu, 52, is represented by Philip Fong of Harry Elias Partnership. Mr Kuan has not been charged.
If convicted of abetting Mr Kuan to give misleading information to the Traffic Police, Wu could be fined up to $1,000 or be jailed up to six months, or both.
The case returns to court on 9 May.
There have been several cases of people getting others to take the rap for their traffic offences.
In February last year, a student was fined $2,000 for getting a property agent to take the rap for beating a red light. Two of her accomplices were jailed three and six months respectively.
The part-time model, who was 19 at the time of the offence, avoided jail time because the district judge took into account her young age and that she was suffering from depression.
In January this year, a chauffeur was jailed for five weeks for taking the rap for a friend. He had claimed to be the driver of a car that was travelling along the road shoulder along the Pan-Island Expressway in September 2009.

Famous plastic surgeon Woffles Wu’s abetting case was exposed by his ex-staff only in January this year

Famous Singaporean plastic surgeon Dr Woffles Wu Tze Liang was charged in court two weeks ago for abetting an elderly employee to take the rap for him for two speeding offences.
Woffles had allegedly abetted 83 year old Kuan Yit Wah to provide misleading information to the police. He had then lied to the police that he was the driver of a car caught speeding on Lornie Road at 4pm on Sept 11 2005 when the driver was Woffles.
If convicted, Woffles could be fined up to $1,000, jailed for up to six months, or sentenced to both.
The case raised some eyebrows over the length of time – seven years to be exact taken for Woffles Wu to be charged in court leading some to question the efficiency of the Singapore police.
However, the offence would not have come to light at all if not for one persistent ex-staff of Woffles Wu who lodged a police report in January this year.
Below is an excerpt of an email we received from her:
Teresa Wong (TW) was a former staff of Woffles Wu who was jailed for one year and three months in 2010 for criminal breach of trust. Our informant claimed that she was a former colleague of Teresa Wong.
“TW lodged her complaint in 2009/2010 and nothing came of it. I lodged my complaint to the proper channel (via) the Traffic Police in January 2012 and within three months, in April 2012, WW has been charged. So if I had not personally pursued this case, despite TW warning me not to, perhaps WW would have got off scot free.”
We are unable to verify her identity, but she has given us many other detailed information which we are unable to reveal here as we have received lawyers’ letters from Dr Woffles Wu to delete comments posted here earlier by other parties.
Getting a fall guy for traffic offences is a serious crime and it is absolutely shocking that the traffic police is unable to detect it earlier and fined the wrong person instead (Kuah Yit Wah)
Dr Woffles Wu will be attending a court hearing tomorrow and we wish him best of luck.
