SINGAPORE - A Malaysia-registered bus that was involved in a fatal accident on a ramp near the arrival hall of Tuas Checkpoint in Feb 2019 had been travelling at more than three times the reported safe speed before it hit a wall.

He, however, did not state the speed limit for motorists in the area. Two passengers in the bus were flung out of the vehicle and the women fell about three storeys to the ground below. One of them, Malaysian production operator Mok Fei Chen, 35, died of multiple injuries at the scene while the 21-year-old woman survived.

Website uses 'highly deceptive, misleading' information attributed to PM Lee Hsien Loong to solicit investments: MAS

SINGAPORE - The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) has cautioned the public about a website soliciting investments in bitcoins by using fabricated comments from Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. Information on the website is «highly deceptive and misleading», said MAS on Friday (Aug 16), adding that comments on the fake website attributed to PM Lee are completely false.  The website is also designed to look like it is linked to Singapore Press Holdings. MAS said: «The site tries to get readers to provide credit card or bank account information. It also asks for payments into a purported bitcoin trading platform, which would automatically initiate trades on the client's behalf.» The public is advised to exercise «extreme caution» and avoid providing any financial or personal information on the forms linked on the website, it added. «Anyone who suspects that an investment could be fraudulent or misused for other unlawful activities should report such cases to the police.» A screenshot provided by MAS showed the website had claimed that PM Lee, in his National Day message on Aug 9, revealed a new «wealth loophole».

Cristiano Ronaldo unveiled as Shopee's latest brand ambassador

SINGAPORE - The lid has finally been lifted off Cristiano Ronaldo's mystery appearance in Singapore early last month.
