    Default Ferrari-taxi crash & Minister Shanmugam’s kind empathy and what he hope to do



    SINGAPORE - The daughter of taxi driver Cheng Teck Hock – who was killed in a high-speed crash involving a Ferrari – will have her school fees taken care of should she qualify for university, while her family will receive “all necessary assistance”, including legal assistance, said Law and Foreign Affairs Minister K Shanmugam.

    Mr Shanmugam, who is the Member of Parliament for Nee Soon GRC – where Mr Cheng’s family resides – gave this assurance yesterday when he attended the wake for Mr Cheng at Block 306, Canberra Road.

    He said Mr Cheng’s daughter, Stephanie, 21, who recently graduated from a polytechnic, need not give up her hopes of going to university to work and support the family.

    Mr Cheng, 52, had been the family’s sole breadwinner.

    Mr Shanmugam said: “Education is not an issue here and as long as she qualifies for university, we will make sure it will be taken care of.”

    As for the long-term needs of the family, such as their outstanding payment of their five-room HDB flat, Mr Shanmugam said that “a package will be put together” with help from the constituency’s welfare fund, NTUC, Mr Cheng’s employer ComfortDelGro, voluntary welfare organisations and well-wishers.

    Details of the help that will be given have not been discussed as the family has called for time to grieve, he added.

    Mr Cheng died after a crash early on Saturday morning involving a Ferrari, his taxi and a motorcycle. The Ferrari driver, Mr Ma Chi, was killed, as was Mr Cheng’s passenger, Ms Shigemi Ito.

    Mr Ma’s passenger, an unknown Chinese woman, and motorcyclist Muhammad Najib Ghazali, 25, are still in hospital.

    Mr Cheng had been a taxi driver for 10 years. He leaves behind his wife, two sons and a daughter.

    Source and photo from Today

    In today’s political climate, it’s quite normal to see the MP rushing down to his constituent’s residence in the event of a tragedy. The MP offering his condolences and whatever assistance to his constituent’s sudden tragedy as in this case the sole bread winner, taxi driver Mr Cheng where he was tragically killed by a speeding Farrari is the ‘new normal.’

    I didn’t really bother to read the finer details cuz by now almost everyone would have heard of the shocking news and even seen the scary video footage accident on You Tube or Razor TV. It’s been making its rounds via email and Whatsapp!

    But what struck me was Mr Shanmugam’s prominent photo shot where he was seen carrying joss sticks to pay his respects to the deceased taxi driver Mr Cheng who lived in his ward. That was the best picture I have ever seen since that tragic accident with all the twisted, mangled wreckage.

    In a typical traditional Chinese funeral whenever someone comes up to the altar to light joss sticks to pay respects to the deceased, the children or grandchildren of the deceased shall kneel on the side of the altar with heads bowed. This is to return the respect to that person lighting the joss sticks. It’s a reciprocal process.

    Minister Shanmugam is a non-Chinese. Yet he carried the joss sticks to pay his respects to the deceased who lived in his constituency. It shows his sincerity and he has gone all the way to offer his condolences to the family members beyond words. His action speaks volume of him. This action will forever etch on my mind and I’m sure many others’ minds also.

    That poignant image of him certainly strikes a chord with the Chinese community especially those older Chinese. It’s the talk topic of those elderly folks in the coffee shops. Never in recent memory have they come across an Indian Cabinet Minister lighting joss sticks paying respects to a commoner’s funeral.

    Minister Shanmugam’s magnanimous gesture not only won over the deceased family’s 心 or hearts but many other countless heartlander Chinese. Whatever previous mistakes or perceived arrogance on his part if any; with this kind gesture are all wiped out and obliterated. This is how a shrewd politician should conduct himself. No need high IQ but just plain common sense and common empathy. Not every Minister or MP could or would do that.

    Remember the case where it was rumoured that a Minister refusing to shake hand with fishmongers in the wet market or immediately washing the hand after that? There was a video played over and over again on another ex-Minister’s half hearted hand shaking touch-and-go with a stall holder?

    I am very much impressed with our honorable Minister Shanmugam’s kind empathy. Three cheers to his excellency!

    What letter? Uncleyap did not say anything that is defamatory in nature. His words at most would be considered as: rude, nasty, blunt, disrespectful, etc

    Uncleyap is a very smart person and is a veteran in political struggle with the regime.

    Uncleyap, am I right?

    Default Minister K Shanmugam makes first official visit to Sri Lank



    Minister Shanmugam (left) speaking to inhabitants in the resettlement village in Jaffna.
    AsiaOne
    Saturday, Jun 02, 2012


    Minister for Foreign Affairs and Law K Shanmugam visited Sri Lanka between May 29 and June 1, said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA).

    Mr Shanmugam visited Trincomalee, a port city in the Eastern Province, and Jaffna, the capital city of the Northern Province. He met the Governors of the provinces and other local leaders in both cities.

    He also visited the Prima Flour Mill. Prima is the largest Singapore-based investor in Sri Lanka, and has been established in Trincomalee since 1977.

    In Jaffna, a province that is slowly recovering from the decades-long conflict, Mr Shanmugam was briefed on the ongoing reconstruction and development efforts. He said that Singapore would be happy to consider some technical assistance in capacity building, such as skills upgrading and teacher-training in computer literacy.

    Mr Shanmugam visited the iconic Jaffna Public Library ,which suffered extensive destruction during the civil war and has since been rebuilt. Last year, Singapore contributed a project to refurbish the children's section of the library and provided training of Jaffna librarians.

    Minister Shanmugam also went to a village which resettled displaced persons, as well as the Nallur Kandaswamy Kovil, a historically significant Hindu temple that remains an important religious and social institution in Jaffna today.

    In Colombo, Mr Shanmugam reaffirmed Singapore's commitment to further bilateral cooperation and wished Sri Lanka well as it undertook efforts towards national reconciliation.

    Mr Shanmugam and Minister of Industry and Commerce Rishad Bathiudeen also jointly witnessed the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding between the Singapore Business Federation and the Sri Lanka-Singapore Business Council of the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce aimed at stepping up greater economic exchanges.

    SINGAPORE: Singapore and Japan are looking for ways to elevate bilateral cooperation to a higher level.

    The Singapore Foreign Affairs Ministry said Minister K Shanmugam had a fruitful meeting with his Japanese counterpart Koichiro Gemba in Tokyo on Tuesday.

    Both sides expressed satisfaction with the excellent and long-standing relations between Singapore and Japan which are anchored by a common strategic outlook and strong economic ties.

    They discussed various ways to enhance bilateral cooperation.

    In this regard, they agreed to convene the third review of the Japan-Singapore Economic Partnership Agreement and also welcomed the strengthening of aviation linkages.

    Minister Shanmugam also reiterated Singapore's support for Japan's participation in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

    The two ministers discussed how Singapore and Japan could work closely in various regional and multilateral forums, such as the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) Seminar on Nuclear Safety, which would be held from 13 to 15 June in Singapore, and the implementation of the Master Plan on ASEAN Connectivity.

    They also engaged in a wide-ranging and frank discussion on various regional and international issues.

    On developments in the South China Sea, both ministers agreed that the situation should be resolved peacefully and expeditiously in accordance with international law, including the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS).

    The two foreign ministers also witnessed the signing between the Singapore Red Cross Society (SRC), the Soma City Municipal Government and the Singapore Embassy in Japan of a Memorandum of Cooperation (MOC) for the construction of the Isobe Community Centre located in Soma City, Fukushima Prefecture.

    This project is the final of four reconstruction projects funded by donations collected by the SRC following the March 11 earthquake and tsunami in 2011.

    Earlier in the day, Minister Shanmugam called on Deputy Prime Minister Katsuya Okada and reaffirmed Singapore's close bilateral relations with Japan.

    Minister Shanmugam also had the opportunity to interact with senior Diet members from the Democratic Party of Japan at a lunch hosted by chairman of the Japan-Singapore Parliamentary Friendship League (JSPFL) Yoshito Sengoku.

    During the lunch, Minister Shanmugam and the JSPFL reaffirmed the strong people-to-people ties between Singapore and Japan, and agreed to promote more parliamentary exchanges between the two countries.

    Shanmugam hails Singapore's strong ties with S.Korea
    By Lim Yun Suk | Posted: 07 June 2012 1941 hrs
    SEOUL: Singapore's Foreign Minister K. Shanmugam said the republic's strong ties with South Korea are marked by warm relationships between the two countries' political leaders.

    He said this at a meeting with South Korean Prime Minister Kim Hwang Sik in Seoul.

    With Singapore being one of South Korea's top 10 trading partners, trade topped the discussions.

    Mr Kim noted that the two sides share a positive trading and economic relationship.

    Mr Shanmugam is set to meet his South Korean counterpart Kim Sung Hwan and other prominent Korean personalities in the fields of politics, media, and business on June 8.

    This is Mr Shanmugam's first trip to South Korea.

    He earlier visited the truce village of Panmunjom in the demilitarized zone separating the two Koreas.

    Mr Shanmugam said: "It's a pleasure to be here and see first-hand the very impressive city of Seoul, and a little bit of Korea, because we have read about it. But to know all of this has taken place really in one generation is truly impressive."

    Govt may tap on President's 'significant' powers amid downturn



    THE President has significant powers in areas such as managing reserves which the government may want to tap on should there be a downturn, said Law Minister K. Shanmugam on Sunday.

    Mr Shanmugam, who attended a community event, also spoke about the gloomy global economic situation.

    He added that after the recent Institute of Policy Studies seminar where he spoke about the role of the President, the presidential hopefuls seemed to have a better understanding of the issue, and he has detected 'a significant shift in the way they are positioning themselves'.

    Global crisis like 911 incident is a power political tool used by PAP to remind the mass no to rock the boat and Singapore needs the current captain to continue to stir the ship. It works on the commoner's fear of instability and unknown, using past proven track records as support. We will not be what we are without the same captain, so don't rock the boat...

    GCT called GE near 911 and scored well!

    Default Plastic surgeon Woffles Wu 'not spared because he's rich'

    Plastic surgeon Woffles Wu 'not spared because he's rich'



    Law Minister explains Woffles Wu sentencing

    Updated 04:05 AM Jun 17, 2012
    SINGAPORE - Law Minister K. Shanmugam has responded to comments that the sentence meted out to plastic surgeon Dr Woffles Wu was too lenient.

    Dr Wu was fined S$1,000 on Wednesday for abetting Mr Kuan Kit Wah, then 76, to provide misleading information to the police in November 2006. The car belonging to Dr Wu, was travelling at 91 kph on Adam Road when the speed limit is 70kph.

    Mr Shanmugam said the incident raises four questions: Why Dr Wu was charged under section 81(3) of the Road Traffic Act; why abetment; why he was given a fine; and why there was a lapse of six years before Dr Wu was taken to task.

    Mr Shanmugam explained that the offence was committed in 2006 when section 204 of the Penal Code had not been enacted yet. The usual practice at the time was that a person would be charged under Section 81(3)

    As for why Dr Wu was charged with abetment, Mr Shanmugam said the 52-year-old "did not make the misleading statements himself."

    The minister said the statements in question were made by Mr Kuan, which was why the charge could only be that of abetment.

    Mr Shanmugam stressed that investigations are ongoing, as to who the driver actually was and that the case has not been concluded.

    He said the decision to prosecute was made by the Attorney-General's Chambers (AGC) and that it is independent in making those decisions.

    As for sentencing, Mr Shanmugam said the courts make that decision and a fine is apparently "within the norm of usual sentences" under that charge.

    Noting that there have been cases where the offender was jailed, the law minister said based on information provided by the Attorney-General's Chambers (AGC), fines are more commonly meted out.

    Mr Shanmugam added the reasons for the findings will not be known until there is a written judgement from the court. And only if and when there is one, he said one can only guess at the reasons for the judgement.

    In this case, he said there was no evidence of any money passing hands.

    He added that Mr Kuan was also not charged and that could have been because the AGC took into account the fact that Mr Kuan is now over 80 years of age.

    As for why it took six years for Dr Wu to be prosecuted, Mr Shanmugam said the police were unaware of the offences at that time.

    He said information was received only much later through a complaint to the AGC, made "more recently".

    Once the complaint was received, authorities investigated and thereafter the AGC decided to charge Dr Wu.



    STICKER LADY CASE

    Mr Shanmugam's comments were made on the sidelines of a community event. Turning to the case of the 25-year-old, dubbed the sticker-lady, who was arrested for vandalism Law Minister Shanmugam said there are no hard and fast rules on what's considered art on public buildings.

    He said the government must look at the consensus of the majority and how the majority would like society to be structured. Charges have yet to be filed on sticker-lady Samantha Lo.

    Default Vandalism law may get a relook: Shanmugam



    Vandalism law may get a relook: Shanmugam
    By Leonard Lim
    Published on Jun 17, 2012

    The Government will relook its stance on vandalism if the majority of society wants more freedom for artistic expression, Law Minister K. Shanmugam said on Saturday.

    But amid the public debate on what constitutes art and vandalism stemming from the 'Sticker Lady' affair, he said it is difficult to say there is a consensus that there should be change.

    His comments come after the recent arrest of a woman who allegedly pasted stickers on traffic lights and stencil-painted roads and buildings with Singlish phrases such as 'My Grandfather Road' and 'Press Until Shiok'.

    Those found guilty of vandalism can be fined up to $2,000 or jailed for up to three years. If the offender is male, he may also be caned.

    Default K Shanmugam have followed up with the family of late Mr Cheng from the Ferrari crash

    http://www.facebook.com/k.shanmugam.page

    K Shanmugam ScMany friends will remember the situation relating to the family of the late Mr Cheng, ( who passed away, resulting from the Ferrari crash, a few weeks ago). We have followed up with the family, and have discussed how we can help them.

    At the same time we also followed up with the family of another resident. The sole breadwinner committed suicide, leaving behind his wife and 3 children. Mdm Liau, the wife, is in a very difficult situation. One of her children attend a special school while another is taking her N levels again. The third child is sitting for PSLE. They need special education assistance and help with finances. We are in the process of helping them.
