That's right, it still on. The Home Affairs Ministry of Singapore has once again refused to accept that Mas Selamat Kastari has escaped from Singapore. According to the Home Affairs Ministry's statement, there's no intelligence or information which suggests that Mas Selamat Kastari is in Indonesia, so the manhunt for Singapore's most wanted terrorist is still on.
After hearing this, I have only one thing to say, "The Singapore government is in denial."
Simply as that, because I'm afraid there's no other explanation for it. I think I'm speaking for a lot of Singaporeans when I say that I will be very surprised if Mas Selamat is still in Singapore. The man has now evaded the manhunt for 5 months. 5 months after escaping and the man has not found a way out of Singapore yet? Yet Singaporeans are to believe that this is the same man who could slipped out of the Whitley Road Detention Centre in February this year in just 11 mins without any outside help?
I have yet to speak to any Singaporeans who believed that Mas Selamat is still in Singapore, if the Singapore government has some info we don't, please tell us. If not, they risked looking very, very stupid to the world.
