  3. So what is really unnatural death??????? Vague😕

  4. Sad. RIP … enough is enough … when is the next one, and when are these going to end??? Is Singaporeans’ sons life so cheap? People on top No real accountability and no real responsibility?

    At what cost???

    In recent years???

    Dominique Lee? 2012?
    Tan Mou Sheng? 2012?
    Mohammed Salem? 2012?
    Gavin Chan? 2017?
    Dave Lee? 2018?
    Kok Yuen Chin? 2018?

    Aloysius Pang 2019?

    Credit they claim? High salary they receive and collect? … costs we (the people and taxpayers) bear and pay? Longer working (hour and age limit) so can pay more taxes and CPF and all indirect taxes to them?

    When lapses and things go wrong? No need real answerability and accountability?

    How wonderful?!!!
