Alleged Forgeries, Conflicted Interests, and the Role of Singapore's Law Enforcement

Why was I being induced to ratify and endorse documents which were alleged to contain forged signatures affixed on behalf of a struck off entity? What did the Boards of SGX listed EZRA Holdings and Triyards know?

And more importantly why when Singapore's Attorney General is conflicted given the allegations implicate a client of his former law firm, would the Singapore Police consult with the Attorney General's Chambers (AGC) to ascertain whether there is enough evidence to INVESTIGATE?

Shouldn't the standard investigative procedure involve the Police conducting investigations, akin to previous cases involving Parti Liyani, Lee Suet Fern, Lee Hsien Yang, Li Shengwu, Terry Xu, and others, before seeking the AGC's advice on prosecution?

The door may have been closed by the Singapore Police, but it should be opened widely by Singapore's 'purportedly' independent Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau! The question being whether Singapore's Prime Minister has the mettle to follow through on his commitments?

"SINGAPORE: Singapore will never let the system go corrupt and all businesses, be it local or foreign, must know “this is how things work” here, said Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Sunday (Nov 5).

Mr Lee said the PAP must prove itself especially when it is tested, by putting principles into action “regardless of any embarrassment or political cost” and dealing with the issues “without fear or favour” while getting to the bottom of the matter.

The party must “show Singaporeans and the world that after half a century, the PAP’s standards remain as high as ever”, he said.

He added: “Singapore is a small place; our system works. If you do something improper, sooner or later it will come to light. When it does, you will be investigated.

“And if it is proved that you did something wrong, you are out and consequences will follow.”
