Justice must not only be done, it must be seen to be done

This is not Masak Masak! It has affected 1.5 million Singaporeans !!

Like most Singaporeans, I am shocked and outraged at the cyber attack which our incompetent People’s Action Par Government allowed to happen by not putting inadequate safeguards. It is the most serious security breach in our Nation’s history.

When the Government announced the Committee of Inquiry (COI) to investigate into the matter, it had the solemn duty to Ensure that it got to the bottom of things and leave no stones unturned. No sacred cows must be spared!

The composition of the Committee of Inquiry is therefore of utmost importance! There is an aphorism in law that Justice must not only be done, it must be seen to be done! The appearance of total impartiality is therefore paramount. This aphorism is an important part of the Rule of Law.

Sadly, the composition of the COI once again reveals the bunker mentality of this government and how everything must be kept within the establishment. Instead of having the greatest independent experts in the World examine and investigate the fault in the system, we once again have a coterie of persons all linked or previously linked to the establishment.

Besides the Chairman Richard Magnus who was the former Chief District Judge, the other 3 members all are either linked to the establishment or were formerly liked ;

1) Lee Fook Sun, which the ST today described as the Executive Chairman of the Cyber Security solutions company Quann World was a former Brigadier General in Mindef and was with the ST Engineering Group for 17 years until he retired in 2017. He is also a board member of SMRT and DSO National Laboratries and a corporate advisor to Temasek International Advisors Pte Ltd.

2) Mr T.K.Udairam was the former CEO of Changi Hospital. He is currently the COO of Sheares Healthcare Management which is wholly owned by Temasek.

3) Ms Cham Hui Fong is the assistant secretary-general of NTUC and has been for the last 27 years.

Do you think this composition satisfies the legal aphorism I have referred to above?

We must change Singapore for the better by having a more open government and respecting the Rule of Law.

  • a nation of hypocrites:

    when Mr Yaw Shin Leong of WP a personal indiscretion, all the pap Ljs and all the pap Cbs no need of self righteous declaration of murder.

    some time later, as true justice has it, pap’s own Speaker of pap clan, michael palmer sama sama indiscretion with pap PA laura ong, the same pap Ljs and same pap Cbs no sound no fury.

    WP, they cry murder. pap michael palmer and pap PA laura ong, they no sound no fury. a nation of hypocrites.

    imagine the DATA BREACH is in Aljunied Town Council and not in pap clan member wife SingHealth.

    again, sure as sunrise, no end of cry father cry mother in pap mouthpieces the states times and mediacorpse why heads must roll in Aljunied Town Council.

    as true justice has it, attackers attack the sleeping ones, and since the overpaid underworked pap clan members are sleeping on their S$m jobs, kena. so far, no cry father no cry mother from pap clan members. because cannot. ceo SingHealth husband ranking member of pap clan of hypocrites.

  • Ownself Check Ownself Again?:

    Culprits are not named and even if there are named, no action can be taken.

    Annual Auditor General’s Report identifies the Culprits and the Wrongdoings but year in and year out, no one gets penalised (maybe at most, a slap on the wrist).

    We need to ask ourselves, what is the purpose of building firewalls in our IT Systems and why bother to conduct annual auditing of financial management of the Ministries and Gahment Agencies?

    Who are we kidding?

  • Rem exiled Former Royalist wor:

    Even though the ashened roti prata referred to the populace voice as nothing but just noises of the environment, presumably he died before he heard his young master of the humonguous lp he has poed since he served the Japanese against Sinkies, added his voice or more accurately to the ashened roti prata’s noise, the nepotist n his harem of BL plps aren’t as fearless as they arrogantly bashed down the opposing politic aspirants n pap policy dissenters, they have taken roti prata noises as bigtime BS, so they wayang with a COI filled with the deadbeat plps to substantiate Thum’s voice which a miniture roti parta tried desperately to discredit but with nfi he not only failed but reinforces the credibility of Thum testimonies.. esp after the sibling saga as Sinkies no matter how daft they r, the words of the siblings have more credibility than any other voices esp when the accused failed to uphold the arrogant claim of no court challenge of accusation implies self admission of the truth of the accusation.
    In most democratic nations even the low profile ones, any Committee of Inqury, known policy critics esp dissenters r usually represented except SIN with its squeakily clean government n its operandi modus in opacity.

  • Selfish Sinkie Syndrome:

    Dear Lim Tean, with utmost respect to you good sir! I will still commend your efforts even though I have to admit all your comments are probably falling on deaf ears.

    Sinkies are deaf and dumb while their Pay And Pay masters are equally deaf to the people’s concerns.

    It is no use at all, until and unless we get a major electoral upset similar to what our northerly neighbor recently experienced.
    Otherwise, NOTHING WILL CHANGE until then. This is the FINAL SOLUTION left for Singapore. Pay And Pay will NEVER change without the tight slap in their faces with a major electoral upset and the removal of the famiLEE dynasty.

    The sooner we realize this is the only solution to break out of the rut that Singapore political system is in, the earlier we can move towards a saner and more progressive society.

  • HarderTruths:

    Alamak – why so blur?

    Who actually believes ‘international’ hackers want to get into $G healthcare? Who believes Shit Times?

    Fake news for a fake nation. More internet regulation on the way. Possibly they will make everyone an internet slave and stop free access to stop these ‘attacks’.

    So easy to do. Right? This ballsless island will worry about such things because what the gahmen say must be so…..

  • WTF:

    Let’s guess what nonsensical excuses our incompetent but handsomely paid ministers will come up with this time to wriggle out.

    “No blame culture please!”, “This will only happen once in 50 years!”, “No amount of engineering can solve the problem!”, “It could have been worse if not for our quick and appropriate response!”, “No commercial value lost!”??

  • Why, Why, Tell Us Why?:

    Appointing a ‘kaki lang’ committee will never provide real answers!

    Are we unable to find professionals who can do a neutral and better job?

    No point conducting a COI if the committee consists of only ‘kaki lang’!

    No point conducting a COI if the committee consists of only ‘kaki lang’!

    Not only members of the COI are “kaki nang”, the CEO of Singhealth is even more than “kaki nang”, she is the spouse of one very high up. She is untouchable!!

    So what do you think the result or finding from the COI? Finding the why, how, where, when and etc of the hacking is the easy part. Pointing the finger at the one accountable is the difficult part!! So the end result is as good as closing the case now and stop waste everybody’s time. Don’t waste the ink and paper where the report will be written on!!

  • All Hell Will Break Loose....:

    If a neutral and non-pliant Committee of Inquiry is appointed to handle the case.

    Many heads will roll and the top brass will be greatly shaken and votes will swing at the next GE!
