[YOUR LETTERS] WHAT IS ICA AND TEO CHEE HEAN DOING ABOUT THE WOODLANDS CHECKPOINT LEAKED VIDEO?

Dear Editor,

It’s been more than 40 days since a 65 year-old man drove a very old Mercedes and embarrassed the whole ICA Woodlands Checkpoint by crashing through the barrier and making his way into Singapore.

Singaporeans were shocked at how easy it was for this old uncle to single-handedly put to waste the millions of dollars spent at protecting our so-called secure borders. Luckily, it was not a terrorist! Now the image of how more than half a dozen of security personnel surround the car helplessly would be forever etched in the minds of Singaporeans.

I understand that due process must take place and it might not be so soon for the offender to be charged and convicted. But more than 40 days later, ICA still has not come clean with the public how the video of the Mercedes crashing through the barrier was leaked online.

You mean the Government needs more than a month to find out who leaked the video when only ICA personnel can enter the Ops room and only so many officers can retrieve the video? This boils down to either incompetency or a total lack of transparency on the part of ICA. It is time DPM Teo Chee Hean come clean with Singaporeans.
