    Minister Shanmugam urges Financial Times to ‘correct inaccuracies’, FT declines

    Minister K Shanmugam

    Update: The Financial Times has refused to submit to Mr Shanmugam’s urging, saying in an article titled “Singapore brushes off concerns, says Shane Todd death was suicide” [Link]:

    Mr Shanmugam questioned the FT’s coverage of the story, accusing it of “recycling untruths”.

    The Financial Times stands by its reporting on the Shane Todd case.

    The Minister for Foreign Affairs and Law, Mr K Shanmugam, has said he hopes the Financial Times (FT) will do the “honourable” thing and correct the “inaccuracies” it published in its first article on Shane Todd’s death.

    That FT article, called “Death in Singapore”, was published on 15 February 2013. TR Emeritus republished it the next day (16 Feb), changing its title to “US engineer found hanging in his Singapore apartment” [Link].

    Mr Shanmugam made the call yesterday (8 Jul), after the State Coroner had ruled that American researcher Dr Todd had committed suicide by hanging himself.

    According to Mr Shanmugam, the FT journalist responsible for the article, Raymond Bonner, had “recycled untruths” and should now “set out the truth”.

    He said the conspiracy theory that Dr Todd had been murdered was based on three points – one of which was “simply untrue”, one was “pure imagination”, and the last “pure fantasy”.

    Mr Shanmugam added that the family never explained how the “untruths” came about as they walked out midway through Dr Todd’s inquest before testifying.

    The Todd family say that someone had mysteriously accessed Dr Todd’s computer and hard disk drive after he died, and that he had been garrotted.

    Responding to questions about the Todd family calling the outcome pre-determined, Mr Shanmugam said: “There’s no reason for the Attorney-General’s Chambers to want any conclusion,” adding that all evidence had been dealt with.

    In response to the State Coroner’s determination of suicide, the Todd family have released a statement, vowing to press their position that Dr Todd was instead murdered.

    We are disappointed, but not surprised, by the Coroner’s verdict of suicide. We went to the inquiry with great expectations because we were told that it was going to be an open, fact finding, non-adversarial hearing, with the goal of finding out what happened to Shane Todd. Nothing could have been further from the truth. The State was represented by five of its top lawyers who never investigated the possibility of murder, but were at the inquest solely to prove Dr. Todd committed suicide. Shane’s company, IME, hired five top lawyers to prove there was no relationship between IME and Huawei, and that the Veeco machine Shane was working with was not a special, one of a kind machine with military application. Both of these contentions were proven false.

    One must ask if Shane really committed suicide, why did the state and IME expend such an enormous amount of time, effort, and money to prove it? What do Singapore, IME, and Huawei have to hide?

    Please see our website www.Justice4ShaneTodd.com to see the overwhelming evidence, ignored at the inquest, that our son was indeed murdered and why.

    NNN.  From www.justice4shanetodd.com please note that the TODD family wrote therein:

    • Suicide searches: Alleged searches on suicide on Shane’s computer were made on Saturday after the assumed time of death. (Click to see timeline)  Police compromised the computer by making their own searches. The web addresses of suicide sites were not provided by police or state lawyers, even when requested by the family at the inquest. No IP addresses of computer accessing website were ever confirmed by websites. The family’s forensic expert was never given access to the computer to verify that any said suicide searches occurred.

    OOO.  This is highly irregular.  Since the main pillar of the LIEgime's argument for suicide is that Shane allegedly visited suicide websites, ostensibly to learn how to kill himself, how is it that the police, prosecutor lawyers, judge, or any other Singapore Govt official TO THIS DAY, DID NOT GIVE THE URLs OF THESE WEBSITES SINCE THIS WILL PROVIDE IRREFUTABLE PROOFS SHANE VISITED THESE SITES?  The reason is simple -- Shane never visited any suicide website because if he did, dozens of logs and tracking details would all have automatically been recorded on the suicide website's servers.  For a very brief and incomplete indication of how websites track and log your every visit, read this old, outdated article dated 6 Jan 2012:  HTG Explains: Learn How Websites Are Tracking You Online.  The moment you access a website, cookies are automatically downloaded and stored in your computer, not just one but many, including from third party advertisements on the webpage.  The presence of these cookies will be one way to prove Shane's computer had visited a particular webpage.  In addition, the servers serving up the webpages will also track Shane's computer, logging such details as the exact time and date he logged on, how long he stayed on any one page, which previous website he came from [such as a google search], etc, etc, etc.  Read more from this google search result for [how websites track your visits].  Since the Singapore Govt, to this day, still refuses to disclose which suicide websites Shane allegedly visited, which will therefore have logged his every visit and this can be verified, the main pillar of the Singapore Govt argument for suicide is therefore proven to be false and faked.  The indisputable conclusion is Shane was murdered by the Singapore Govt.

    Subject: MUST READ: Singapore coroner commits perjury and obstruction of justice, in a long line of corrupt LIE KY judges, by declaring Shane TODD committed suicide, not murdered, as facts show

    RH:  For the veracity, honesty and corruptibility of the Singapore courts and judges, read this Wikipedia article on former Singapore Solicitor-General Mr Francis SEOW and also, his insider account of the Singapore judiciary, in his excellent book Beyond Suspicion? -- The Singapore Judiciary [click], available on amazon.com [click here for link to book].  Book is described as:

    Editorial Reviews


    Once again, Francis Seow has revealed, with his usual rigour and attention to detail, a vital part of Singapore's repressive machinery, this time by placing his spotlight on its judiciary. 'Beyond Suspicion? The Singapore Judiciary' is essential to understanding the true nature of human rights abuses in that country. Human rights campaigners now and historians of the future will regard it a required reading. -- Margaret John, Coordinator for Singapore and Malaysia, Amnesty Internatinal Canada

    Francis Seow has not just exposed the judiciary; he has also laid bare the serious limitations of the political system. This is a quite brilliant piece of sustained analysis of how the judiciary is harnessed to political persecution. It is a style and methodology that is more legalistic..., but it is only through this approach that the full magnitude of the judiciary's emasculation and the PAP's manic desire to crush the slightest semblance of serious scrutiny become fully clear. --Garry Rodan, Director, Asia Rresearch Centre, Murdoch University, Western Australia

    This is an extremely valuable record of many significant cases and events that lay bare the dynamics of the Singapore judiciary and its intersection with political personalities and imperatives. It is an impressive work...of scholarly and public policy interest, providing chapter and verse on the politico-legal nexus in Singapore. -- Christopher Tremewan, Pro Vice-Chancellor (International), University of Auckland, New Zealand

    About the Author

    Francis Seow was educated at Saint Joseph's Institution in Singapore and at the Honorable Society of the Middle Temple, London. he joined the Singapore Legal Service in 1956, serving as deputy public prosecutor until 1972, when he entered private law practice. He was appointed Solicitor General of Singapore by Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew, and was elected president of the Law Society in 1986. In 1989, Seow was appointed the first Orville Schell Fellow, Yale Law School, and in 1990, a Fellow at East Asian Legal Studies, Harvard Law School.

    Marion family seeks justice outside of Singapore court

    MARION - A Marion family, who recently dropped their inquest request into the suspicious circumstances surrounding their son's death in Singapore, is now seeking justice for him outside the court room.

    Tainted evidence, false testimonies, and a corrupt prosecution, they're all things Mary and Rick Todd say led to them walking out of a Singapore courtroom during the inquiry into their son's death.

    "It was a kangaroo court, it was a sham, it was a joke," Shane's mom, Mary said. "It had a been a mom tortured for [10 days], sitting there day after day, hour after hour - listening to lie after lie and realizing that they do not care about the truth."

    Shane Todd, 31, was found hanging from his bathroom inside his Singapore apartment in June of 2012, just days before his scheduled departure home to the U.S.

    His parents say their son was murdered, though, because he knew too much about his company's illegal transgressions. They also state that Shane's autopsy report, along with photographs of his body, support their homicide theory.

    "You can see the scratches (on his neck) when he was being strangled, he was fighting for his life-those are fingernail scratches," said Mary Todd.

    Shane's parents say leaving Singapore actually brought some closure to their son's death.

    "When I walked out, I was relieved, because I knew they didn't have the power to torture me any longer," said Mary Todd.

    The Todd family is now taking a different approach in how they seek justice for Shane. This week, they put a public document online full of evidence suggesting Shane's murder. Their hope is that it will go viral.

    "This document backs up every single thing we've said and every single contention we've made with facts. I'd like to get it out there. We hope that our country does that right thing, but I'm going to go on and live a good life," Mary Todd told us.

    "We can't do any more - we're just one family against three countries. We've received a lot of help from Senator Baucus and Tester's office, and Congressman Wolfe. We hope that continues." Todd added.

    The Todd's hope the public documents lead to a congressional investigation in the future, but say they've already honored their son by posting the truth for everyone to see.

    Regarding the murder of Dr. Shane Todd in Singapore

    Dr Todd's parents

    From: Rick and Mary Todd (Dr. Todd’s parents), 1771 Bitterroot Dr. Marion, MT 59925. Contact email: ricktodd@...

    Purpose: To use our son’s murder to alert ordinary citizens and elected officials of the dangers associated with the illegal transfer of technology and to show how far some foreign companies and governments will go to protect clandestine work or international reputation.


    Dr. Shane Truman Todd was found hanging in his apartment in Singapore on June 24, 2012. He had a PhD in electrical engineering and had been leading a special GaN (Gallium Nitride) development team with the Institute of Microelectronics (IME), working with the multimillion-dollar MOCVD (Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition) system IME had bought from Veeco.

    In January 2012, IME sent Dr. Todd to New Jersey for training on this highly technical, one of a kind MOCVD machine. Upon returning to Singapore, Dr. Todd reported meeting with a Chinese company. He became increasingly uncomfortable and told his family he was being pressured to compromise US security. He refused to do so. From late February Dr. Todd spoke with his family weekly, expressing fear for his life because of the work he was doing with this Chinese company. The company was identified as Huawei through documents found on Dr. Todd’s external Seagate hard drive after his death.

    In March 2012, Dr. Todd gave his 60-day notice to IME and was given a bonus by IME to stay and complete some projects. At the time he was found dead, he had accepted a new job offer, bought his plane ticket home and was in the midst of washing and packing his clothes. The police immediately ruled Dr. Todd’s death a suicide. Even after the family informed them that Dr. Todd had expressed fear for his life, they never considered looking into the possibility of murder.

    The Investigating Officer (IO) admitted in the coroner’s inquest in Singapore that the investigation had not been conducted according to international protocol but stated that the police were justified in the way they handled the evidence because of the obvious suicide. The family walked out of the inquest before it ended when it became clear that it was not a fair and impartial fact finding inquiry to get to the truth as had been promised by Singapore officials.

    Who Is Telling the Truth?

    ·        Was Dr. Todd murdered or did he commit suicide?

    ·        Did Dr. Todd have information IME and/or Huawei didn’t want revealed?

    ·        Was the inquest in Singapore a fair and balanced hearing of the evidence?

    To help concerned parties to answer the above questions the following files are attached:

    • an overview of the evidence
    • questions that the inquest never addressed or adequately answered
    • a chronology of Dr. Todd’s time in Singapore and
    • a list of documents supporting the family’s assertion that Dr. Todd was murdered.

    Related photos are also attached. The listed supporting documents will be sent by email upon request.

    7. Photo-hand comparisions

    9. Photo-neck comparisons

    LLL.  For a very quick glimpse into LIE KY psyche, personality, methods and hypocrisies, read these WikiQuotes from LEE Kuan Yew.


     III.  Further to para FFF, Shane was left alone in a room with top secret recipes, obviously for him to study and copy.  Shane could easily have used his smartphone to photograph the entire stack of recipes.  My previous cellphone, now vandalised by the ISD CIA operating in the flat above mine, a cheap and modest Sony Ericcson, already had a document mode to photograph documents.  The Singapore Ambassador to the US, who has publicly objected to the this Associated Press article [the best defence is a good offence], mentioned that China had already bought "hundreds" of the kind of ovens that IME bought and for which had sent Shane to Veeco to learn the recipes.  Obviously trying to say that China does not need Shane and IME to obtain and transfer sensitive technologies.  This is only a half-truth at best because like kitchen ovens, you can buy hundreds of ovens but cannot bake a cake if you do not know the recipe for baking cakes.  Hence, the Veeco ovens are useless without the recipes, hence Shane was sent by IME to Veeco in the US to learn the recipes.  Meaning that THERE WAS TRANSFER OF SENSITIVE AND VALUABLE TECHNOLOGIES using Shane as a medium of transfer.

    JJJ.  Throughout the kangaroo court hearings, the court tried to emphasise that Shane felt guilty about transferring prohibited technologies and implying that because of this or partly, Shane may have eventually committed suicide.  But if you deduce from this, the fact that Shane felt guilty actually proves that Shane indeed, HAD BEEN INSTRUMENTAL IN TRANSFERRING FORBIDDEN TECHNOLOGIES.  Otherwise he would not have felt any guilt or wrongdoing.  So the court was, unwittingly, proving that THERE WAS TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER.

    KKK.  LIE KY was voted into power as PM in 1959.  However, in the very next general election in 1963, he lost by a landslide so caused a 6-hour blackout around the City Hall vote counting centre during which he evacuated all the counting agents and other officers and after electricity was 'restored', LIE KY had WON by a landslide.  I am on record on YouTube video saying this, in addition to my allegation of further election rigging in the 1997 general election in the Cheng San constituency.  I have not been sued [by the most sue-happy govt and politicians in the world, in history, also the most successful, sure-win suers in the history of jurisprudence] nor charged.  So my allegations of LIE KY repeated elections rigging still stands.  I have also published numerous internet articles on these election riggings and they still stand, unchallenged.  LIE KY and his ISD had also beaten to death political detainee Mr CHAN Hock Hua.  So these are the kind of politicians -- crooks, criminals, thieves, murderers, you are dealing with, in the form of a [Singapore] govt.

    EEE.  Further to paras RR, SS, TT, UU, VV, WW and XX, Singapore's Patent Office started only recently, in 1995.  The reason is, there are hardly any local Singaporean inventions before 1995 or after.  The Intellectual Property Office of Singapore [IPOS] is a quiet and dead place, with hardly any patent applications.  It was started mostly because I had some inventions that I wanted to patent but did not have the money.  So the IPOS was started, like most other institutions, to Look Good and modern.  The IPOS is proof that there are no inventions in Singapore, which largely remains the entrepot port that Raffles founded in 1819 and this trading outpost economy remains to this day, with hardly any engineering other than factory line assembly operations.  Very few students study engineering in our 3 or 4 universities and they mostly prefer to do desk jobs than soil their hands handling metal or plastic objects.  Singapore is so poor in inventions that if you have an idea for a device, there is nobody or company in Singapore who can make a prototype for you, even for the IPOS application.

    FFF.  As for Shane being left alone in a room to handcopy recipes for GaN, the court tried to minimise this fact by saying that handcopy will not be accurate because there are many pages.  However, Shane is a PhD and even if he just read the recipes, even without copying them by hand, he would be able to understand the recipes and thus, able to replicate or duplicate the steps needed to make GaN wafers, simply by reading, studying, the originals.

    GGG.  In addition to all my detective work here, in these 60-odd, short paras, I would add that MOST MURDERS ARE KNOWN TO EACH OTHER.  Most murders occur between victims and their murderers who are close to each other.  Meaning that Huawei has little to do with Shane and the China Govt even less known to Shane.  So the closest relationship is the Singapore Govt, through employing Shane in IME and getting him to learn GaN recipes from Veeco, for the purpose of thereby obtaining GaN technologies, for which Singapore has no use, so only to gift to others.  So the key suspect based on the fact that murder and kidnap victims, etc, are almost always close to their murderers and kidnappers, must be the Singapore Govt, meaning 2A1B.

    HHH.  Further to para DDD, I quote the crook, thief and criminal, LIE KY, who famously threatened his critics and dissidents, "If you think you can hurt me more than I can hurt you, try."  He also threatened to hack his political opponents in an alley with a hatchet:  "You take me on, I take my hatchet, we meet in the cul-de-sac."  So, the black tie and tuxedo fundraiser dinner organised by KISSINGER with 3 Presidents, was honouring a CROOK, THIEF, CRIMINAL, NOW MURDERER, TOO.  So many decades of Absolute Power have totally dehumanised LIE KY and 2A1B, who have no constraints and restraints on their power and hence, will kill for little, meaning Shane.  One of the reasons the Amerikan Govt loves LIE KY is that he postured as a staunch ally of Amerika and even hosts in his tiny islet, CIA rendition victims, for torture and imprisonment.  Do read the Wikipedia updated article on Shane TODD, especially the part:  "Actually, no one believes it [was suicide]", updated 28 May 2013 at 04:15, now further updated on 31 May 2013 at 07:35 [new link just above].


    RH:  New texts in PINK [Paragraphing format: A to Z then followed by AA to ZZ and now continued as AAA]:

    AAA.  In the interests of Truth and Justice, I will add my remarks here, which is that Shane bout of depression would be known to IME [his Singapore Govt employer].  In getting the job, Shane would have to pass his medical exam and would have to truthfully state any past or prior medical condition, and medicines taken, otherwise his company health insurance will refuse to pay for a recurrence of any medical condition not disclosed in the forms.  In fact, this knowledge of Shane prior bout of depression would be an important factor tipping the LIEgime into killing him and covering it all up as suicide due to 'depression' and faking all the digital evidence to show suicide.

    BBB.  Do not trust Singapore Police and policemen because they are all fearful for their jobs and govt retribution, from an omnipotent and all-powerful govt that has arrested and jailed without trial >1,000 political prisoners, the longest for 32 years, longer than even Nelson MANDELA.  Here are search results for [ Singapore number jailed under ISA ].  It is also well-known that some of the ISD secret police do wear Singapore Police uniforms for easier arrests of political dissidents.  Tanglin Police station, for example, are staffed by mostly ISD secret police but each wearing an official police uniform, for easier arrests of opposition politicians, since it is a serious, big event, if the secret police were to arrest them instead, in their capacity as secret police.  So, in Singapore, police and secret police are interchangeable and the entire Singapore Police Force [SPF] are infested with ISD agents, as are all the papaganda medias.  In fact, the secret police are everywhere, including inside IME.

    CCC.  In Singapore, suicide by jumping off a tall building accounts for the vast majority -- 72.4% while hanging, the second most common method, accounts for a mere 16.6%.  In Hongkong, the first and second methods are 46% jumping and 23% charcoal burning [these are not latest figures].  If you think about it, there are not many ways to kill Shane and cover it up as suicide.  Thus, hanging was chosen.

    DDD.  Always remember that though 3 Presidents may have honoured LIE KY at the KISSINGER fundraiser, in a black tie and tuxedo event, LIE KY is a crook and criminal through and through, like many Amerikan-protected despots.  For example, PhD Professor Christopher BALDING [click], in his website [click], has uncovered the astounding fact that, analysing from the publicly published accounts of various Singapore Govt arms as well as investment vehicles controlled by LIE KY, his son 2A1B, wife, and relative TT, now President, some $1.3t are missing in what Prof BALDING wrote as "MADOFF"-style pure "accounting fraud".  In Prof BALDING article, "Why HO Ching won't respond to me" [click], [HO Ching is the wife of 2A1B and she controls the second sovereign wealth fund while 2A1B controls the other, the SGIC], he explains that he can prove every word he has written on the financial shenanigans of the LIE KY famiLEE, who has stolen most of the missing state reserves of $1.3t.  In any case, whether the missing $1.3t is directly in the famiLEE bank accounts and investment accounts or not, the fact is, the entire state reserves are personally controlled by the famiLEE and so are as good as their own personal monies, used as they wish, to whatever whims and fancies they want, including self-aggrandisement projects like investing big sums in countries where the LIEs want a bigger, personal, red carpet, welcome and 15min audience with their Presidents.  So the TODDs and the world should always remember they are dealing with crooks and criminals disguised as a [Singapore] govt.


    New texts in YELLOW:

    New texts in GREEN:

    A.  [Previously 1].  Shane body was found with his feet resting on the floor, yet woman forensics [every high position in tiny Singapore is given only to PAP members or elite families] lied that when he hanged himself, his feet would have dangled 6.5cm to 11.2cm off the floor [for hanging to be possible].  This means that the strap would have to stretch 6.5cm to 11.2cm for his feet to rest on the floor after death.  It is impossible for any strap, maybe even an elastic rubber strap, to stretch that much within a few hours of death, even with his body weight of 89kg.
