    Default How Can 3 Foreigners Charged For Cheating Casino Absconded Without Their Passports.

    Seems like things has never changed even after Mas Selamat escape to Malaysia. How can 3 foreigners whose passports were impounded for a pending casino cheating case managed to slip pass our immigration control? Haven't we already tighten up our border control yet after the fiasco with Mas Selamat? What explanation does Wong Kan Seng have now?

    Absconded foreigners charged for cheating casino

    THREE foreigners charged in court in April 2010 with cheating the Resorts World Casino who managed to abscond while their cases were pending have shed light on the need to tighten pre-trial procedures and border controls.

    Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Home Affairs Mr Wong Kan Seng addressed this issue highlighted in the second session of the Eleventh Parliament of Singapore.

    As investigations had concluded, Mr Wong believed that the continued remand of the three accused persons was not necessary. In particular, they were released as they were able to meet the requirements for bail and their passports were impounded by the authorities.

    Mr Wong added that improvements were made to the bail process as recently as 2007 with the establishment of a dedicated Bail Court. Furthermore, there are established procedures for Home Team agencies like the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority and the police to detect wanted persons at the checkpoints.

    Police are still investigating how the three accused persons absconded even though their passports were impounded.

    If MSK can limp out of the country without passport, what is stopping 3 probably very fit people from getting out without passport leh ?

    Singapore has a long coastline, you know ? If not, refer to a million salary MIW.

    It's not realistic that to expect everyone must have a valid passport to leave (or enter) Singapore.
