Crashgate is probably fresher in memory.

Former Renault F1 driver Nelson Piquet Jr.’s crash at the 2008 Singapore Grand Prix was later found to have been ordered by the management. It gained his teammate Fernando Alonso an advantage during the race, but Piquet decided to spill the beans the following year after being dropped by the team.

The result was the departures of managing director Flavio Briatore and executive director of engineering Pat Symonds from Renault.

There were also speculations at the time that Singapore might charge Briatore and Symonds, but it never materialized.

For Singapore this is a dubious world honour.

How come the Singapore Police appear to have been caught with their pants in their mouth?

Right in their backyard !

If this is proven correct the Commissioner of Police and the Minister in charge should resign out of command responsibility. How could they not realise that the world's biggest crooks are in their backyard ? What other such crooks are lurking in Singapore and using Singapore to create chaos around the world?

As a Singaporean I am ashamed to the core.

The Police  have been cracking down on minnows of crime in Singapore and many times end up supporting the guilty at the expense of the innocent on simple one to one cases.

You want proof I can give you proof.   

Disgraceful and shameful.
