SMRT lapse: why no ministerial response?

I am deeply disappointed that there’s still no response from the government over the appalling and shocking SMRT security lapse.

All we got was a belated SMRT expression of regret.

If it had not been a prank but something more tragic like a timed explosive device, hundreds of Singaporeans would be dead and injured by now.

The public would like to know how the government intend to beef up security measures at MRT stations as these are the favoured targets of terrorists.

In other countries, those in charge would without hesitation resign.

In Japan, they might even commit hara-kiri.

But in Singapore, they hang on and on. Shame!

I say stop searching for a scapegoat. Let the Swiss national go! Do a survey and many will agree we’ve been let off very lightly this time.

  1. Unlike military camps, MRT depots were probably not marked as possible terrorist targets during the assessment. Jurong Island and Changi Naval Base are class 1 targets, with tighter security than other camps. Depots are also ‘dilarang masuk’, but with supposedly lower risk than a normal military camp (I saw even the PDF camp has concertina behind the fence). So first question is .. is the threat assessment correct? Second question .. any security audit by SMRT or government to determine security measures appropriate for that risk category?

    • She don’t take train,she drive a Ferrari SDQ 9 P,before that a 300 MERC. She is a 55 years Malaysian spinster,a Spore PR. Very arragont,she claimed no benefit to be a Sporean except public housing,very close to Mrs PM. I wonder why Spore with very good education system can’t produce SMRT CEO. This Saw Phaik Hwa is from Metro and later Duty Free Outlet,nothing special. She keep replacing her VP,to avoid competition.

      You all think she actually cares about it. For all she knows,if anything goes wrong she can always go back to Malaysia with her fat bonuses.

      For your information there was another security breached in January 2011 but not reported in media. An employee brought his young daughter to play at Ulu Pandan Depot. Their presence was not known by security oficers,it was reported by a passer by who is concern about a child playing at the maintenance pits
