In a commentary, Han Fook Kwang, the Straits Times’ Editor-at-Large and Senior Fellow at the RSIS discussed insights and lessons that can be drawn from the case of Ms Parti Liyani, former maid of Mr Liew Mun Leong, who is former Chairman of Changi Airport Group and Surbana Jurong. Ms Parti Liyani had been convicted earlier of stealing from her employer but had the decision overturned on appeal. Among the insights includes the question of privilege and entitlement enjoyed by the rich and influential, including their access to justice and corridors of power.
…The writer is also Senior Fellow at the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies, Nanyang Technological University.
