A cybernut called RI, “Raffles Idiots” when referring to Kong Hee. Must be a frusco that couldn’t get in, though one has to accept that Tan Kin Lian and Tan Jee Say fit the term “Raffles Idiots”. As does Kee Chiu Chan, though to be fair to RI, he was only there for JC: like the gals.
Seriously RI boys are sneered by lesser breeds as being only book worms, not street smarts.
Kong Hee showed RI boys are street smart too. For starters, his in-laws are footing his legal expenses.
He was a good entrepreneur: he harvested souls for money.
He also got five stupid people to help him use other people’s money to help his wife live the Hollywood lifestyle. And he only got punished with only a slightly longer sentence.
The Great S’pore Sale came early this yr for some people
The 3-judge panel changed the sentences
- Kong Hee: From 8 years to 3 years and 6 months.
- Tan Ye Peng: From 5½ years’ to 3 years and 2 months.
- Chew Eng Han: From 6 years to 3 years and 4 months.
- Serina Wee Gek Yin : From 5 years to 2½ years.
- John Lam Leng Hung: From 3 years to 1½ years.
- Sharon Tan Shao Yuen: From 21 months to 7 months.
Many others have spent longer time in prison for less money than him.
OK, OK, he still may kanna takan hard.
But whatever, those from whom he misppropriated money, have already forgiven him. Now taz genius at work.
So maybe God’s also an RI boy? We’ll know this for a fact when the CA upholds the decision of the High Court. The traditional understanding of the section in question is highly convoluted. And seems premised that it’s only right that a director of a company cannot receive a lesser punishment than a clerk.
The offence of Criminal Breach of Trust (‘CBT’) exists in various forms. There are different maximum sentences for:
- Simple CBT (Maximum imprisonment term of 7 years);
- CBT by a carrier (Maximum jail term of 15 years);
- CBT by a clerk or servant (Maximum jail term of 15 years);
- CBT by a public servant, banker, merchant or agent (Maximum jail term of life imprisonment or 20 years).
But doubters will still be doublers because if God is really from RI why doesn’t he engineer a boom in Sentosa property prices so that Kong Hee doesn’t lose money?
