PM to explain Mas Selamat escape

Posted by jtsmyth8 on April 18, 2008

A full account of how terror fugitive Mas Selamat Kastari escaped is expected on Monday, when Deputy Prime Minister Wong Kan Seng makes a ministerial statement in Parliament.

Mr Wong will likely detail the findings of a Committee of Inquiry on how the JI leader broke out of the Whitley Road Detention Centre on Feb 27, and what has been done to deal with the lapse.

The three-member committee chaired by former High Court Judge Goh Joon Seng was formed last month to investigate the escape.

Mr Wong, who is also Home Affairs Minister, had said last month that committee sittings could not be held in public as the Whitley centre is a ‘sensitive installation’. (story)
