They had allegedly committed a negligent act that led to the death of a wheelchair user last February; they are being accused of failing to make sure that the deceased, Mr Hassan Mohamed Karchi Arsan Osman’s wheelchair was engaged, causing his death.

Kwa is also accused of failing to hold on to the victim’s wheelchair properly.

The court heard that Kwa, who is a Singaporean; and Thadar, a Myanmar national, are still working for the company. At the time of the alleged offence, Kwa was the driver of a vehicle while Thadar is a healthcare worker.

Kwa is being represented by lawyer Vinit Chhabra, while Thadar is represented by his lawyer K. Prasad, and the defence told the judge that they would like to view CCTV footage of the incident, as well as a forensic pathologist’s report on the deceased’s death.
