Singaporeans from all walks of life, who like to read about other people’s wrongdoing, are waiting with bated breath for The Straits Times to come up with a multi-page, full-colour spread soon.

This after the general manager and secretary of Ang Mo Kio Town Council, Victor Wong, has been removed from his duties and is under investigation by the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau.

Singaporeans are expecting ST to be working on their investigative exposé, as there has been no other reports so far other than one breaking news.

One Singaporean, Kua Sin Boon, said: “The Straits Times reporters must be all hard at work putting their 24-page magnum opus together as we speak now during this end-of-year lull.”

“No rest for the wicked and no rest for hardworking reporters too.”

Other locals said they are excited to see the informative graphics ST puts together showing the probable routes funds have been transferred and are also looking forward to videos showing how relationships between vendors and town council intersect in a complicated web of shady dealings.

Another local, Xi Hei Qian, said: “It will be great if The Straits Times can also investigate the anchor minister in Ang Mo Kio.”

“And then use the power of the press to compel the truth to come out as the local media holds those in authority to account for any transgressions.”

“This is going to be like Spotlight all over again.”
