What are the historical statistics for ‘conditional warning’ in corruption cases?

I refer to the article “Parliament: Keppel Corp unit not let off lightly in corruption scandal, says Indranee Rajah” (Straits Times, Jan 8).

It states that “Ms Lim had said there was the perception that KOM was being let off with just a slap on the wrist as the company was given a conditional warning in lieu of prosecution by CPIB and the Attorney-General’s Chambers.”

In the history of Singapore – how many companies have been “given a conditional warning in lieu of prosecution” for corruption?

    It will not be that easy to recover from the degradations of “competence and trust” by the CPIB and the Attorney-General’s Chambers which stood as bedrocks of our success as a nation. Indranee Rajah failed to realise that whatever amount of monetary penalty is imposed, it cannot justify the “decimations of our personnel and public trust”. Her flippant logic, I suspect have already put her in the gutter of dirty money politics. The only way to fix our degraded system is to bring in someone who knows how to work within the system with experience, demonstrable integrity, and credibility.

    In the olden days, ex-Minister Mrs Lim Hwee Hua(who together with Minister Georgie lost their pants in AL GRC in GE)was tasked to tidy up smelly shits left behind by top guns which include Ministers and cronies and buddies of the PAPigs. Looks this IndraKnee fella has replaced her now. While Mrs Lim did her job with a smile and poise, this forked-tongue fella does it with a stern face, twist and turn until most in the audience go to sleep!

  • They Can We Cannot:

    The rot starts from the top. If our top companies need to bribe in order to get contracts so that they can survive, how about our local businesses fro survival sake? If our small local companies are caught giving bribes so that they can secure contracts, they should also be let off lightly by the authorities as they are doing what KOM has done. 154 ST also has an article on whether it is acceptable for big companies to give bribes so that they can secure contracts in other countries. It was claimed that our top companies will lose out if they are unable to do so. One law, two different enactments for corruption practices for big and small businesses.

  • Maxchewy:

    As expected from decades of PAP responses to their own scandals…..using their combined scholarly brainpower, they always get away with anything and everything. So they continue to wear spotless white. We have delusional leaders at the top. White can be black now.
    Read Animal Farm after the pigs took over the farm.Four legs good but two legs better. Etc.
    Wealth and power and fear of losing them all have compromised our top civil servants. Not from me but from fmr head of civil service Ngiam Tong Dow.they can’t be martyrs coz they have families to feed (caviar Wagyu beef). Democracy is pretty dead here. Reminds me of Najib’s own ministers and AG blindly loyal to him in return for…….

  • Lawyers good humans?:

    Many singaporeans know whats going on looking at the KOM saga and the way PAP responded.

    But out of FEAR and SELFISH Self-Preservation will, AS THEY ALWAYS DO THEIR ENTIRE LIVES, ignore social justice.

    Here is my PROPHECY for singaporeans :

    You will shoot yourselves in the back soon.

    The END is coming.

    Penny Wise, Pound Foolish.

    All of you are ACCOMPLICE.

    An EXTERNAL FORCE is gonna give a very tight slap.

    You all live in Denial and IGNORANCE. You are BLIND Scholars.

  • Law is Fun game:

    Law is a fun game to play.

    Why the small fine?

    What does this say?

    Is corruption done overseas not illegal in singapore?

    If so, I have some ideas for doing business overseas.

    But first, we need confirmation and clarity from the legal experts.

    How smart or dumb singaporeans are depends on how they interprete this saga.

    But they should no longer brand themselves with “whiter than white” anymore.

    White is enough already, dun exaggerate to say white than white, a term that is oxymoron.

  • what we are interested!:

    Hello!! Singaporeans are not interested in whether KOM was not let off lightly or heavily!! What Singaporeans are interested is, whether those clowns at the top knew what was going on for 14 long years whilst corruption was rampant right under their noses!! If the clowns knew, why alarms were not sounded?? If they didn’t know, why the hell are they sitting on their arses for!!??

  • pap selected INDIAN president:


    If the PAP were truly to dig deep which was why they say the entire corruption case is complex internationally, then likelihood Sim Khee Boon, ex Chairman, Lim Chee Onn, ex MD might be involved too. Which then can mean its MORE THAN US$400,000 of bribes Keppel gave out, and the bribery involved a LONGER PERIOD of time. And may mean many many MORE PAP politicians ARE CORRUPTED.

    the above is from INTERNET.

    the conclusion above is correct. we agree. many many more pap politicians are corrupted do look and do sound right.

    pap one law two interpretations. if pap does the right thing and catches those named above, sim kee boon, lim chee onn, besides lee boon yang the current chairman, then, these folks shall also spill beans about current ministers like pap clown brother and sister are spilling beans about pap clown in public so much so pap clown needed parleement to declare everything’s okay let’s move on.

    so pap whitewash lah. pap disappointed? why not just investigate and put everyone to jail per law book. even if pap clown himself is wrong surely the same pap law book applied to him too right?

  • NotMyProblem:

    “Conditional Warning”, what are the conditions? Nobody knows!!!

    When this warning was given to the company, could a new CEO or board members deny any knowledge of the warning? Just like the current corruption case where everyone denied having knowledge of paying US$55 Million, as if the money came from one individual’s pocket!!

    Just hope the 70% is not that blur too! As a reminder, the US$55 million and US$422 million come from you. When the time we realised the Reserve is kosong, don’t bother to ask Mdm President, she would deny any knowledge too.

  • Totally Not Accountable:

    From the exchange, to me as a layman, the garment is not responsible for the individual companies under Temasek which they own 100%.

    This suggests to me, many more corruptions could happen in future and still may not be caught or corruptions could have been committed before without public awareness.

    Such a system is fundamentally flawed.

    The most Kia Su way.

  • Only Moron will BELIEVE You!:

    What kind of law is this? Why aren’t they being prosecuted??? What the hell is “Conditional Warning”? IT’S BEYOND DISGUSTING! USD55 million bribery surely the top management signed off the approval??? So dont want to create Blame Culture or Grossly Oversight again? If Indranee’s logic is applicable here when a Singaporean is doing illegal drug overseas. Then they shouldn’t be prosecuted when they come back to Sg? PAP is telling the citizen we have 2 sets of law??? Harsher punishment only applies to the normal citizen? If PAP or the elitists break the law = NO JAIL TERMs? Is PAP really treating Singaporeans like MORON? ABSOUTLEY WHITEWASH, MOCKERY OF THE LAW……SO INDIAN CAN BE MALAY AGAIN? If Singaporeans PRO PAP still accepts this kind of BS, honestly GOD cant even help you. GOOD LUCK – Again ask yourselves this question: Who did you vote for?

  • The Rot Started From The Top:

    Please Indranee, don’t try and fool us with that ‘Conditional Warning’ and so can spare the Top management, including those top people in Temasek Holding From liabilities. The KOM corruption lasted 14 years, and I am sure all the accounting had been cooked, to derive profits. Please don’t tell us these people are not aware of the fake accounting. Please come clean, Minister Indranee. Also why the Law Minister himself is staying from the case?

  • root causes of fake news:

    When Govt has increasingly become opaque hiding behind sensitivity, speculations spring up like mushroom, each trying to guess what are going on behind the scene. Some may touch the sore nerves and got legaaly charged but the true facts are still lying in darkness. Too get rid of fake news or to increase readers’senstivity of detection of what is fake, what is speculations and what may be lurking in the dark that are responsible with speculative news, the Govt has to be absolutely transparent. The governed must be clear whatvthe governing is doing. Another root cause is acceptance level of criticism the government official Esp the top management. It is self admission of inadequacy to think that criticism will damage one’s image. The chinese has a wisecsaying 真金不怕火 Truth is indestructable. If a man is upright and of high integrity and ethics, his image will depend how he keep them intact. Respect is earned not demanded. This is a simple logic understood by all men regardless of education, wealth or DNA. Perhaps as one has more wealth and power one starts to believe that he deserve (Demand) to be more equal than other and his respect for other begin to peg on wealth and power. But again it has also become a simple logic that all men are equal and because power and wealth are things of opportunity they arevstrip off on death. A most important taboo to all in power is disrespect for human value. To persecute other for criticism mis strictly an open admission of guilt. If criticism is false and the subject has earned his respect, it doesn’t need persecution, the public will provide the defense. Persecution casts doubts on the persecutor not the persecuted. Again the Chinese has a wise saying No smoke no fire. So taccetance of criticism shows the magnitude of self respect and confidence of one’s integrity and his human soul.
    Guilts are the worst enemies of those operating in the dark. Guilts heightens sensitivity and dulls sensibility. On the contrary, it enhances the validity of the criticism and the curiosity to find out more. The affected is thus consumed on both sides. Thisvis why the British monarchy able to survive and respected even in the present century. Its confidence and acceptance of reality of the times are the main reasons for their resiliance. Taichi management reveals incompetence, guilts and liability. A govt with many dark holes have already surrendered the rights to condemn fake news as their dark hole operations are the main culprits to such hapenings. To regain credibility, a thorough clean out of the filths entrenched within opaqueness is paramount and criticisms are honoured and not persecuted to instil fear. Hitler adopted the tactic of rule by instilling fear but the results are now apparent. Fake news die naturall有。
