    sidetrack..

    technically, the police didn't have anything to do with his escape rite? coz ISD is an organization on their own.. under MHA rather than SPF..

    loving all the conspiracy theories though..

    No... this is under the singapore prison service and ISD but guarded by gurkhas which comes under the SPF which comes under the MHA. ISD and Singapore prison service also comes under the MHA.

    Either the authority does not actually want Mas Selamat to be apprehended or it must have done a really lousy job going about it. First, they were slow in announcing he had escaped from their custody and other than a single photograph, provided practically no other information. Slowly, they said that he walks with a limp and then subsequently said that his limp is only noticeable when he runs but not when he walks. When I first saw his photo, I didn't know his height and only later learned he is 1.58 metres. What about his weight? Is he stout, skinny, fat etc.? We still don't really know. Now about a week later, the authority just informed the public of the attire he was last wearing. It is no wonder that Mas Selamat is still at large.

    Singapore has always prided itself as very efficient but this is downright disappointing. I share everyone's anxiety that Mas Selamat be taken into custody again really soon but if the authority were to continue with the present strategy, I am really sceptical if he will be apprehended anytime soon if at all. I really hope the authority do sometime really constructive and useful without further delay.

    Our image as a secruity tight country has been damaged due to this incident. To think that on the tv/newspaper there are still recruiting adverts on SPF, SAF... etc

    this is quite relevant as well. its some common sense that they should release more distinctive information. even a simple snatch theft crime police can release the person's last seen clothes and height and what colour as well. yet for such an incident they took so long.

    but then again we cannot speculate whether or not they are efficient or no. they might have protocols within or regulations to follow that we never knew or understand and hence might misunderstand their sincere intentions to apprehend Mas.

    Singapore gov't butt of jokes after prison escape

    1 day ago
    SINGAPORE (AFP) — Terrorism is usually no laughing matter, especially not in security-conscious Singapore, but the escape from custody of a limping Islamist extremist suspect has led to scorn on the Internet.

    Barbed jokes and irreverent spoofs have sprouted up on websites five days after Mas Selamat bin Kastari, the alleged Singapore chief of regional terror group Jemaah Islamiyah, escaped with apparent ease from a detention centre.

    "Toilet Break, based on a true story starring Mas Selamat Kastari," read a mock post on one wesbite by a blogger inspired by the hit US television drama "Prison Break".

    Blogger Philip Chua wrote: "Singapore has now dropped the ball big time and really is an international laughing stock."

    "You don't see prisoners escaping from terrorist detention centres in the West or Guantanamo. More so a leader of the terrorist network in the country next to you!"

    Kastari, who was arrested in neighbouring Indonesia in 2006 and turned over to Singapore, remained at large Monday and officials said he was likely to be still hiding in this multiracial island republic of 4.7 million people.

    Accused of plotting to hijack a plane in order to crash it into Singapore's Changi airport in 2001, Kastari managed to escape after asking to go to the toilet during a family visit, security officials said.

    Direct criticism of the government is rare in the mainstream media, forcing dissatisfied Singaporeans to resort to the Internet to express their views.

    Teoh Khengze, a Singapore-based author and journalist, wrote on his blog that the circumstances of what he called "The Great Singapore Escape" were "as incredulous as the escape is audacious."

    Talkingcock.com, a popular satirical site, said Kastari's escape underlined the need to give cabinet ministers another salary hike even though they were already among the highest-paid in the world.

    "We need to equip our Mini-stars with everything they can to deal with this crisis... and as we know in Singapore, public service and legislative influence are all not sufficient incentives," it said.

    "Only the highest salaries in the world will do," the humour site said.
    It showed 13 doctored photographs of Kastari in various possible disguises -- in a blonde woman's wig, a 1960s-style Afro hairdo and aviator sunglasses, a handlebar moustache and a beard and turban in Osama bin Laden style.



    A popular Singaporean blogger who has previously irked the government with attacks on high living costs said the city-state need not worry about losing cabinet ministers.
    "They won't be asked to resign or even take a pay cut," wrote the blogger known as Mr. Brown.

    "We are not like those free-wheeling and chaotic governments from Western democracies that make their leaders accountable for every little thing."

    Just heard on the radio, a few ordinary citizens are putting up money reward for information about Mas Selamat whereabout.

    Our local enforcement agencies still zero reward for information about Mas Selamat.

    I'll also donate my film camera Canon AE1 as a reward.

    Please donate generously so we can sleep in this beautiful island peacefully.

    Interesting thought.

    The situation is usually already quite intolerable without additional security checks.

    I think it will be quite hellish if security checks are implemented.

    It might be bad but I doubt it. I see very little relevant for them to make a bigger fuss that this fugitive would that interested to go jalan jalan at this IT show thus he escape just to attend heheh

    But just today...it took my boss 3 hours jammed just at the causeway area to get from Singapore to JB.

    Great huh? This guy we not even sure he would use the causeway to escape but last time the murderer of the China National's young daugther just stroll across via the causeway into Malaysia and walked away. Anyone recall that boo boo?

    i really think the MHA or some government agency should offer a bounty for his capture.
    that'll boost public efforts several times..

    A Nation of Bounty Hunters? No thank you. This might just turn into someting worst or brings out something bad out of people. A lynching mob mentality? Wrongly capture due to mistaken identity or worst..."hit-first-ask-question-later". Given the hype and how he is made out to be really dangerous... I would suspect if he is spotted or someone that looks like him will get hit first then be approached and questioned or verify if he is the one or not.

    I personally feel everyone not part of the police or army should leave capturing this to the professional. And that is speaking as some one who did his NS in the Police force.
