Singapore’s widely touted policy of zero tolerance to corruption

Keppel’s corrupt actions in Brazil dealt a blow to Singapore reputation. The corruption was on a breathtaking scale. The facts, which were initially vehemently denied, have since been admitted by Keppel. The details are set out here in the statement of facts attached to this Deferred Prosecution Agreement. See pages 23-38 here.

The CPIB claims “This case is complex and transnational, involving multiple authorities and witnesses from several countries.” This is its justification for not prosecuting anyone.. This excuse does not withstand scrutiny. The CPIB has successfully prosecuted other international cases of Singaporean corruption committed overseas before.

To not prosecute stands in stark contrast to Singapore’s widely touted policy of zero tolerance to corruption, and the uncompromising approach taken in many cases sometimes involving miniscule sums of monies. Furthermore, this latest case is in fact a repeat corruption offence for Keppel and also for some of the individuals involved. The decision not to prosecute will cause more damage to Singapore’s reputation than the reprehensible acts that were perpetrated.

  • opposition dude:

    So when PAP starts talking their usual cock of zero tolerance for this and that do remember to roll your eyes and say “Har, really ah?”

    All this from an arrogant government that sees no issues with their “own self check ownself” nonsense which has on more than one occassion led to numerous lapses and then some.

    May Day rally is coming soon so get ready to hear more from the goondu about how they will “look after” us and how they will “get things done”.

    Is it too many ELITES may be ending in the goalie?

    So what if you have been a Police Commander or miniSTIR ………..you shd taste what goalie is!

    A reopening of the case will serve Singapore well……..even it takes a few hundred man years to bring justice to the table!

    No PARIAHMENT SPEECH, PSE!

  • only stupid people vote pap:

    zero tolerance to corruption was during the time of 1st gen pap.

    now with pap clown in charge, even though CPIB reports to pap clown directly, zero tolerance to corruption is in past tense.

    when Dr Goh KK Dr Toh CC et al. were in government, any corruption was dealt with severely.

    hahaha.

    today in 2023, dealing with corruption is not even a slap on the wrist.

    There is s severe erosion in the trust of this so called squeaky clean govt. The Keppel case, the SPH, and the FTX will all go a long way to show up the bull shit in the government’s approach to corruption.

    I am still waiting for our so called highly rated 4G leaders to take definitive action to right the boat and indeed to kick out the 3G leadership’s frailties.

    I respectfully disagree. The current 4Gs are simply sideshow novelties best at hoodwinking the daft, while at least in the 3Gs, there are still some real stuff.

    The outcome of this case does nothing but reinforce that it’s OK if it is there own people.

    O yes, this will be use as a good reason why PAP ministers must be paid more & more so that they don’t have to think how to make extra millions.

    A good timing for the season.

    //The current 4Gs are simply sideshow novelties best at hoodwinking the daft, while at least in the 3Gs, there are still some real stuff.//

    aiyoh. some of the 3G are part of the 4G lar ?? the newer members of the 4G are basically there to clean up ‘sheet’ already planned / decided for by the 3G or before (plus the many experts / advisers they have some of whom may not be living here in the country ??) ??

    sinkie land is here today because of consequences manifested today becos of past decisions lar – consequences made worst (or plans completely disrupted ??) by CONVID99 and wars in other part of the world ??? there are damages that cannot be put back into good original position ???

    A few phone calls and they get away while CPIB has to make up story to the press to justify letting them go scot-free.

    The beginning of the crash and destruction of decades of building up our reputation. It is a shame enough to make LKY turn in his grave. A bunch of gutless 4G leaders will take us downhill, they are more concerned with hanging to their jobs than to uphold the principles upon which we have built this nation.

    A disastrous cowardly situation we are in!

    How many times I said the liars cannot be trusted but the unthinking citizens assume not their problem……..

    Corruption is growing and this is no secret……..Keppel’s case can accept with no punishment for anyone is just like the Parti’s case when a false report can be made and then also no punishment for well connected guy…….one country two systems……..

  • SINGAROAR:

    In the case of Lee Suet Fern which is not a criminal case, the AG rushed to prepare documents of over five hundred pages though it did not serve the interest of the Public but only the PM.
    This is a criminal case and the AG is looking the other way. Why? Is it because it involves his boss’ wife. LW should resign from office if he wants to be the personal lawyer to LHL & Wife. Why stoop so low to take taxpayers’ monies and not act in our interests? It is disappointing that our Law Society remains quiet unlike Malaysia where the present Law Society President and members, past Presidents and judges would have questioned the decision not to prosecute in the spirit of the LAW which seems to be dead in Singapore.Except for a handful of lawyers the silence only shows the decay of the legal fraternity.Even our law Minister seems to have lost his tongue. The State’s loss in this decision is unmeasurable as it would mean that the govt. of the day supports crime!

    in accordance with what you are saying, pap as government being second to none, punishing the culprits per pap rulebook isn’t it the right thing for pap to do?

    yet, we see this from pap CPIB, The Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) had issued stern warnings on Jan 11 to the six individuals, adding that they would not be charged or prosecuted. As such, they were not publicly named. This was due to several factors, including the difficulties involved in getting evidence in a complex case involving multiple authorities and witnesses from several countries, the CPIB said.

    isn’t it the white on white MO to leave no stone unturned including going to the ends of the world to remain white?

    don’t we see how pap went to the full length to prosecute AHPETC?

    cannot one minute chicken next minute feather. if chicken, chicken all the way. if feather, feather all the way.

    we declare, in the keppel case, if lky is alive and around, even the ex minister in keppel shall be punished. lky may even give the ex minister the poison pill like lky did to teh cheang wan.
