Dear A.S.S. Editor
The Hong Kong Customs are likely to press charges against the shipping company and the captain of the container ship which was involved in transporting the nine SAF Terrex vehicles from Taiwan.
HK Customs confirmed that the transportation was done without a required licence, and they would be charging the company, APL under criminal charges for a suspected breach of the law.
Not sure how our MINDEF is going to answer this. No doubt the company is not under MINDEF’s purview, but they were obviously hired to transport the Terrex back to Singapore. Surely proper licensing had to be done. After all, they were carrying our nation’s asset. How could MINDEF let this lapse occur?
Meaning to say MINDEF hire this company to transport assets, and they just wash their hands off and hope these vehicles make their way to Singapore?
