    Default News Flash: TT Durai Arrested

    On Ch 5 news. TT Durai has been arrested. Will be charged tmr.

    Former National Kidney Foundation CEO TT Durai has been arrested and according to informed sources familiar with the case, he is expected to be charged on Tuesday.

    He is now out on bail.

    Several directors and key management personnel in the former NKF Board will also be hauled to court on Tuesday.

    Lawyer Chia Boon Teck, acting for former NKF chairman Richard Yong, told Channel NewsAsia his client will be charged in court on Tuesday.

    NKF's former treasurer, Loo Say San will also be levelled with charges under the Companies Act.

    They each face one charge in connection with US-registered, Chennai-based company, Forte Systems.

    In September 2001, the former NKF signed a S$4.29 million agreement with Forte Systems to provide a new enterprise resource management system.

    The deal involved payments from NKF even though Forte Systems was said to have failed to deliver some services.

    Both companies were owned by Pharis Aboobacker, who's believed to be a friend of TT Durai.

    Yong and Loo were summoned to the Commercial Affairs Department on Monday afternoon to collect the charges, but were not put under arrest.

    Other lawyers say T T Durai, former Board member Matilda Chua and an unknown third party were dealt with separately by the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau.

    This comes months after the 300-page KPMG report late last year which uncovered some questionable practices by the old NKF and the Health Minister had said then that anyone found to have broken the law will be prosecuted. - CNA/ch

    That's quite expected. I'm more interested to know who else will be implicated.

    Let the police and courts go through the proper process.
    This is why mr goldtap needed to threaten anyone with powerful lawsuits if they suggest anything amiss.

    He was playing poker. Even threatened to increase the demand for damages > extremely big amount to frighten off Singpress.
    But Singpress called his bluff and said "showhand"
    To their credit, Singpress defended their employee, the editor.
    It would have been easy for a less righteous employer to sacrifice her career and "resolve" the lawsuit.
    maybe mr gold tap did not know who he was taking on.
    do you know who are behind Singpress?
    better go and find out

    Even mrs powerful cannot save him.

    normally in an asian society
    when you got a mrs powerful backing you so strongly
    everybody fears you

    and the power got to his head

    this is how rotten and decadent society can get if we are not careful.

    the legal machinery being used to threaten innocent people who spoke the truth and cow them into silence and pay damages too.

    law when used to uphold the rights and dignity of the downtrodden is beautiful
    but it can be misused and abused.

    hmm...must be coincident again, the whole issue will definitely settle just before the voting day.



    Any idea what is the heaviest penalty under Companies Act? Hopefully not just some heavy fine which he can easily afford it

    Election next month, this month then want to charge TT Durai ?

    The opposition has no case about the NKF saga as it is being handled by the police and courts.

    Very difficult to say that the sentencing is pure coincidence.

    Jail term possible, depending on the offence. Look at the CAO guy, he got 3 1/2 yrs right ?
