Dr Tan Cheng Bock Calls For Independent Review Of Parti Liyani's Case

Dr Tan Cheng Bock Calls For Independent Review Of Parti Liyani's Case

Even though the Attorney General’s Chambers (AGC), Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) and Ministry of Manpower (MOM) have promised to be accountable by holding a review, Dr Tan Cheng Bock wonders if the reviews are "independent enough to be 100% objective." Dr Tan Cheng Bock counter-proposes that the government should create an independent review board to look into this case. The benefits of having an independent body will be its ability to uncover any "underlying systematic faults" instead of chasing after short-sighted targets like hunting for individual human errors and finding scapegoats.

Man climbed through a bedroom window and risked falling five floors in rape attempt

One night in October 2012, he climbed out the living-room window of the fifth-floor flat and onto the parapet. He then climbed through the window of the victim's bedroom. Her bedroom door was locked. Once inside, he covered her mouth and pinned her onto the bed. As they struggled, he violated her sexually and tried to rape her but eventually stopped.
