CHEE SOON JUAN: WHY IS SHANMUGAM SILENT ABOUT BENJAMIN LIM’S DEATH?

In October last year, a 4-year-old boy fell to his death from an open window that had no grilles. Back then, Mr K Shanmugam spoke up very promptly, writing on his Facebook. Mr Shanmugam was angry – and justifiably so. Still, his aggressive tone was surprising. After all, he didn't possess, at least at the time he wrote his post, all the facts pertaining to the episode.

WHY IS PAP BLIND TO ITS OWN RECKLESS IMMIGRATION POLICY MISTAKES?

K Shanmugam says about the haze: "The frustration of our people is all the greater because the haze can be prevented. The majority of the fires are man-made, by companies seeking to profit while people pay the costs.” It is ironic that a PAP Minister can see Indonesia’s mistake about allow its businessmen to profit at the expense of ordinary people.

LAW MINISTER: SLAPPING AMOS IS “UNACCEPTABLE”

People may have strong feelings about Amos (or anyone else who is charged). But we have to leave it to the courts to deal with them. Taking the law into one’s own hands cannot be condoned. Rule of Law means respecting the legal process. If everyone starts taking the law into his or her own hands, then we will no longer be a civilised society. I hope that the attacker will be caught quickly, and is dealt with appropriately.
