27 Sep

The poster says it all doesn’t it? As another ultra-nationalistic movie comes out from the fists and feet of Donnie Yen, the fists of Wong Kan Seng’s fury will fall blow by satisfying blow upon Mas Selamat.

The follow up to this will be a production of “Breaking The Mas Selamat Code: MSK’s greatest secrets finally revealed.”

The great escape artist is now back in Singaporean custody to share on how he escaped from the now infamous toilet window. Alas, like any good magician, the secrets will likely die with him.

INVESTIGATIONS have been launched into how terrorist leader Mas Selamat Kastari escaped from the Whitley Road Detention Centre to Malaysia, and once these are completed, the results will be shared with Singaporeans, Home Affairs Minister Wong Kan Seng promised yesterday.

This may, however, take some time as a lot depends on whether the Jemaah Islamiah (JI) leader is cooperative or not, said Mr Wong, who is also Deputy Prime Minister.

The disclosures will also need to be verified, he added.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a constituency event, he said: ‘I am sure that Singaporeans are very interested to know how he escaped. I can assure Singaporeans that when the information he gives can be verified, and we can conclusively say that that is how he escaped, and without compromising on operational security, I will let Singaporeans know more about how he escaped.’

The 49-year-old terrorist escaped from the Whitley Road Detention Centre on Feb 27, 2008, sparking a nationwide manhunt.

It emerged later that he swam across the Johor Strait into Malaysia, where he was on the run until caught by Malaysian police more than a year later, on April 1 last year, in Johor. The capture was the result of intelligence provided by Singapore.
