Minister of Law and Home Affairs, K Shanmugam, weighed in o the case of the Tradenation scam couple, in a lengthy Facebook post.
He said that offenders are likely to be caught due to the Singapore Police’s “good linkages” with the police forces i the region, who “work closely with their regional counterparts”.
Here is what he said
[Tradenation case – couple who fled Singapore]
Pi Jiapeng and Pansuk Siriwipa are suspects in a series of alleged cheating cases, relating to luxury goods, in the Tradenation matter. They fled Singapore on 4 July. They were returned to Singapore with assistance from the Royal Thai Police as well as the Royal Malaysia Police.
I’ve often said before: one, if you’ve committed an offence, you are likely to be caught; two, when you are arrested, if you are guilty, then the facts are likely to be found and presented, and you are likely to be found guilty; and three, you are then likely to serve the sentence.
Our Police have very good linkages with regional police forces. They use their leads, and work closely with their regional counterparts.
The matter will now be dealt in the courts.
