Where’s Mas Selamat Kastari????
He escaped from the Internal Security Department’s Whitley Road Dentention Centre on 27 February 2008. Today is day 18 since then, and the guy is still on the run.
I see his face plastered on walls, pillars, billboards, toilet doors, practically anywhere and everywhere in Singapore. Yet no news of his arrest.
Thus far, there’s only one seemingly reliable account of Mas Selamat sighting – a female lecturer claimed to have seen him on 27 February at Thomson Road area, looking disheveled and begging for money from another lady.

When I found out that even my favourite foreign newspaper, the New York Times carried a story on Mas Selamat Kastari, my heart sank. Singapore is in the international media limelight for the wrong reason this time.
Four million pairs of eyes, and we cannot catch one limping fugitive. This guy is really putting us in a very bad light. Seriously, please stay vigilant and call 999 if you see Mas Selamat.
