    another thing to note... it only takes a few "honest" mistakes to ruin singapore. don't have to wait for five years to see the effect.

    But, but, their decisions are investment related, right?

    Good investment decisions, good KPIs = more bonuses for the officers.

    Poor investment decisions, poor KPIs = no bonus for officers?

    Really, l like the phrase "in any sense of the word"...

    Yeah man, the officers that were guarding Selamat made honest mistakes too. So did the officers at the airport that let the man flew with his son's passport. I don't think they're the beneficiaries too. So it's all acceptable. Right!
    oppss.you remember those incident har....gee you were not suppose to recall those leh. Anyway..old stories lah they will tell you. Water under the bridge. heheheh...

    Well I guess they set a whole new bar for accountability.

    where do you think the funds for the investment came from? i bet part of it is from our CPF. but anyway, our CPF is guaranteed. just hoping that there won't be any Nick Leeson wannabe handling investment related decisions for SG.

    looks like the link the threadstarter provided is a rumour. Reuters above claimed that temasek dismissed selling them.. looks like there is more than meets the eye

    Maybe they bought them back after the price fell lower and the news exposed :P

    After you sell and buy back, your holdings is "unchanged since March". Ie take March's holdings, compared with Today, yup unchanged.

    Has this report been verified in anyway? The website and subsequent reporting by Reuters makes it quite suspect.

    if they really sell and buy back, the ppl up there deserve a tight big slap on their faces.

    transaction cost for such a HUGE transaction is not a joke..

    You bet? How is that for an educated guess?

    Regarding this thread, the news is unsubstantiated and while some conspiracy theorist may find it amusing to start speculating, i certainly do not think its fair for anyone to start spreading rumors.

    I am hereby closing this thread.

    This is a PHOTOGRAPHY forum for crying out loud.
