Repoter: Mr SIA, why did you not press charges against Mr CEO's wife ?
Mr SIA: First we have to be very sure that the incident took place. We need to have witness, another passanger if possible. This is necessary to protect the airline, if not we can be counter sued by Mr & Mrs CEO. Do you know how much they can claim base on their standing? Also, we don't want to risk lossing their and their rich friend's business both on a personnal and also on a business basis. That would have mean a big loss of business for us.
Reporter: But isn't that a case of different rules for different people?
Mr SIA: Well you already said it yourself, different people. Different people have different friends, different people have different business contact, different people can hire different lawyers.
Reporter: So you admit that you have different rules for different people?
Mr SIA: No, no, no, I didn't say that !!! We have only one rule for everyone, but because they are different people, we have to be very careful how we apply it to them.
Reporter: But if it was just any other passanger in Econ class, you would have him/her arrested at Tokyo, would you not?
Mr SIA: Sure !!! We at SIA have to protect our staff !!! If it turn out to be wrong, don't worry, I have lawyers sitting in their office waiting to handle this kind of case for us, sure win one!!!
Reporter: And yet in this case.......
Mr SIA: Come on lar, you think I'm stupid isit? Mr & Mrs CEO also got lawyer and his lawyer is the boss of my lawyer, so must be 101% sure first, even than must try to cover for them mah.
Mr SIA taking out his h/p: Hello ........ hello Mr CEO, yes, of course I remember your golf game with my boss. Don't worry, I'll carry your golf clubs myself. No no no, it'll be my pleasure to do it, don't worry. I'll be there in 5 mins. Good bye and please give my regards to Mrs CEO. Bye.
Mr SIA to reporter: Sorry but I have a urgent business matter to attend to. Email me, I'll get my PA to reply to you
