    Dr. Silviu Ionescu, chargé d'affaires of the Romanian embassy in Singapore, who reported his Audi A6 as stolen to the authorities 40 minutes after the accident, is now a prime suspect.

    His current whereabouts is "unknown".

    The police had a prime suspect under their nose all these while and they know it, yet the culprit was allowed to leave the country.

    Farking nonsense.

    Car thieves are very professional. They do not drink themselves silly first and then go on to break into cars and drives them off.

    Neither do they steal the car and drive off to some pub to drink first and continue with their theft later.
    I love photography but my photos suck!
