    (PM Lee). i do not know what has happened in the past. it has come out now. obviously, the checks and balances didn't work. the ceo is responsible, he reports to the board, the board has a fiduciary responsibility to answer for this. so somehow it didn't function, they resigned and let's start from scratch, let's look ahead."

    is he saying that we should forget the past?

    I think he is saying that it is ..... A HONEST MISTAKE....

    And now, MediaCorp artistes also complain how badly they were treated during the show

    They had risked life and limb raising funds for the NKF through the charity shows.

    But they feel they didn't get enough appreciation for their efforts - or enough attention when they were hurt.

    Said an artiste: '(We were told to) act sad and not to laugh or joke or show that we are enjoying ourselves. Otherwise, it will 'cover' the sombre mood wanted for the show.'

    The artiste also claimed that some of the emotional displays during the show are actually scripted.

    'Before each show, the organisers will talk to us. They will tell us to say things like 'I want you to call'. Because we are stars, our fans will heed our call and start donating.'

    Good Thinking. You seem a very sensible person.
    What are your plans?
    Are you authorized to get my donation back?

    CRY on cue. No joking on the set. Be careful with the props.
    These are just some of the instructions that have irked some MediaCorp artistes performing stunts on NKF fundraising shows.

    Behind the brave, often grave, faces of the stars performing in the shows, they claim, are traces of bitterness.


    Sounds to me that they are stupid to carry on for every show after having to go through all that. Maybe they are contractually binded to do so.

    They have to perform-Their rice bowls. The answer lies with who owns MediaCorp?
    Looks like another group of NKF victim.

    Think it's a matter of time more breaking news set in, as the investigation team steps in to investigate on the injured NKF.

    Agree, if she's really sincere, should explain to the public herself. It's not just about the peanuts comments.. but also that she fully supported TT Durai and the way they managed funds..

    I hope she realised that her view was wrong, and is humble enough to admit to the public... Currently it only seems that she merely regretted that she said what she said out loud...

    well..i dont think she realised that the comment was inappropriate

    Mr Goh said: "To educate her I showed her the letters and emails and now I think she understands better what she said was not quite in order but she explains why she said it. She told me that she was thinking of the organisation, she said that if you look at the organisation, the right person must be paid the right wage, but of course she put it across that way, the rest is history."


    but at least SM Goh understand that it is wrong

    He added: "When she told me what she said at home, I told her immediately, you're in trouble. There'll be negative reaction and sure enough the next day, Singaporeans reacted generally quite critically to her remarks and it's understandable because NKF is a charity and Singaporeans contribute to the NKF and they don't earn much."

    Till now it seems that none of those involved (TT Durai, Board of Directors and Mrs Goh) has admitted that there was anything wrong with the way they managed funds..

    I guess they're just regretting that it was made public..

    I dont understand why until now, only our well respected SM Goh "indicated" Ms Peanut understand she had might have made an inappropreate comment.

    As the woman behind such a great man, shouldnt she be "man" enoght to stand out an explain her real intend meaning to ther comment. More inportantly, apologise to singaporean should she agree that she is in the wrong.

    if that is the case, then there's no way for them to regain the trust of the public.

    i find it quite shocking that someone of her stature was absolutely clueless what the impact of her statement was to the singapore public. furthermore, she needed to be told and educated by SM Goh that she was in trouble over the comment that she made.

    Now that NKF are scaling down their fundraising efforts for the foreseeable future, does this mean that they will be trimming their staff numbers as well to cut down on unnecessary running costs?

    the people, who pay TTD's salary and bonuses through their donations, may have a case against tt durai if they can prove that he has by deception dishonestly obtained for himself the opportunity to earn remuneration or greater remuneration in his office or employment.

    Then I suggest someone start up an online petition/donation drive to fund a mass "people vs. TT durai + board of NKF" suit in court. Oh, and while he's at it too, may as well implicate some govt officials who're trying to cover this thing up.

    While it may sound like an excellent thing to do, lets face it, there's NOTHING that can be done. Singapore is much like Malaysia before, if Mahathir said something, its as good as law. PM Lee has already said the "lets look ahead" statement, meaning that any further investigation into NKF's past dealings will die a quick death

    you forget that we have a clean government in singapore. any possible wrongdoing or offence will be exposed and punished, so that the good reputation of singapore is not tarnished, and the confidence of the public not eroded.
