Parliament to wayang on GLC Keppel record bribery scandal

On Monday, Singaporeans will be treated to a Keppel wayang in Parliament with ministers facilitating further cover up.  [ Today ]

How could it not be when all hear-no-evil, see-no-evil PAP MPs will continue to act stupid as if corrupt Keppel executives did not exist?

The US$55 million was offered by a government-linked company in bribes and more than S$1/2  billion in fines appear to be loose change to all $192,500 a year PAP MPs.

Hmm .. perhaps the words “corruption” and “bribe” are only associated with non-elites?

According to US court documents,  Keppel’s action taken against 17 nameless former and current employees included “US$8.9 million (S$12 million) of financial sanctions, demotions and departures“.  [ CNA ]

If so, that must be a record but there may be some creative accounting at play.  Perhaps the “S$12 million of financial sanctions” include future loss in earnings till retirement?

No Keppel shareholder knows if the employees involved have been sacked because senior executives of GLCs are easily transferred to other GLCs.  As for those who were demoted, they could easily be promoted within a couple of years, if not months.

Recall the death of NSF Dominique Lee where the 2 SAF officers involved were “punished by fines, delays in promotions” for their negligence? [ Asiaone ]  Well, that’s only what PAP wanted the public to believe.

Captain Chia, one of the officers involved, was in fact promoted in less than 2 years after Dominique’s death.)

In another bribery case almost similar to Keppel’s involving ST Marine 3 years ago, there was no cover up and the names of those involved in the 11-year corruption were disclosed. They are:

Chang Cheow Teck (ST Marine and Aerospace  president from 2008 to 2010 and 2010 to 2014 respectively)
Mok Kim Whang (SVP, Tuas Yard)
Ong Teck Liam (SVP, Finance 2007 to 2012)
etc.

The deafening silence from all PAP MPs cannot be a coincidence but orchestrated at the highest level.

That MSM has already been roped in to deflect the issue and Keppel given only a conditional warning by CPIB clearly confirm that Monday’s Parliamentary sitting will be another … wayang.

Enjoy.

  • opposition dude:

    Well said uncle Ang, this is just like when goondu Loong subjected himself to a grilling over his father’s house last year.

    Self declared “There was no wrongdoing” statement is more than enough to whitewash himself. Same pattern for this Keppel bribery.

    After all, die die must protect a GLC what. It would be very different if an opposition party was found guilty of bribery, the papers would be publishing reports on a daily basis with sensational headlines with no detail left uncovered.

  • $19 Billion steal:

    Quote,
    ” October 24, 2017

    In his trip to US this month, Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong brought a S$19 billion deal through the national carrier, Singapore Airlines (SIA), and promised to continue stationing Singapore troops in Syria. According to US President Donald Trump, the $19 billion deal to purchase Boeing airplanes – 20 Boeing 777-9s and 19 787-10 Dreamliners – will bring 70,000 jobs to US for at least the next 10 years.

    Lee Hsien Loong on the SIA-Boeing deal:

    “The deal is a win-win for both sides. It will further modernise SIA’s fleet, and also support many American jobs.”

    The Singapore dictator also committed to participate in the civil wars of Syria and Iraq, supporting the US political agenda of establishing a US-friendly government in the Middle East like Saudi Arabia:

    “Singapore will extend to next year its existing deployment of Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) assets and personnel to the global coalition to defeat the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terror group…We are glad to have been of help.”

    Lee Hsien Long’s trip to US pales in contrasts to his visit to China last month. The Chinese visit was lukewarm and peppered with lips service, with no notable business deals signed nor military cooperation agreement signed in writing. Singapore remains excluded from China’s One Belt One Road project, while the US-led Trans Pacific Pact was dissolved.

    SIA posted a S$138 million loss and announced retrenchment in it’s recent quarter in May this year. It is unknown where did SIA get their S$19 billion funding from. ”

  • pap selected INDIAN president:

    On Monday, Singaporeans will be treated to a Keppel wayang in Parliament with ministers facilitating further cover up.

    FIRST, one pap Lj or one pap Cb shall stand up MONDAY and say, either there is corruption or there is no corruption. and then case becomes closed without crime and related punishment and pap newspapers the states times the next day shall headline Corruption debated in parleement and case is closed.

    THEN, pap clown or his designate shall stand up same MONDAY and many words, all confusing, and then conclude, IT’S an honest mistake lets move on and pap newspapers the states times the same next day shall BOLD headline minister so and so has spoken and case is closed.

    NOT a word about 14 years of corruption. NOT a word about penalty drawing back all the S$m bonuses each KOM Lj including pap ex minister chairman. BECAUSE pap pays each other S$m and to drawback one case means all in precarious position of falling into the same predicament one day so IT shall not take place that any such be permitted even to be mentioned in parleement. ALL pap Ljs and pap Cbs have lied. NOT one is honest. BY omission or by commission all have lied. ALL are tainted.

    PA, they will further make a mockery of this Parliament (PAP-dominated), the law of the land, and themselves, if they try to wayang this thing; it will undermine the integrity which they try so hard to defend. Any politician or political party who tries to justify, defend or cover-up corruption will be mired and dragged down by it.

  • Maxchewy:

    Mr Philip Ang,
    You are a very brave whistle-blower. Right now you must be one of the TOP “enemies”of the PAP Regime. I’m sure all the TOP Govt agencies including ISD and MHA and IRAS have already looked into your background from TOP to bottom including that of your family members. No doubt LHL and Shanmugam and HSK know all about you and read all your TRE postings. Beware and watch every word you utter. The current select Ctte looking into legislation against fake news must have you as a potential target besides no 1 Alex Tan of ST Review.
    Ensure every criticism you proffer is at least 90% accurate!

    Methinks they fear you now more than CSJ, KJ, PS, CG etc as you are very knowledgeable about maths, economics and related topics esp Govt statistics. They can’t fool you as they can to other Singaporeans.
    But do be wary always……see what they did to Roy Nerng and Amos Yee?
    I hope to read more of your exposes in this new year 2018.
