Ma Chi’s family rubbished rumors that he is a son of Ma Kai, a high-ranking PRC official

Posted by temasektimes on May 19, 2012

The family of the late Ma Chi (马驰) has rubbished ongoing rumors in cyberspace that he is a son of Ma Kai (马凯), a high ranking communist official in the Chinese Central government.

The claim was first made by PRC journalist Cao Guoxing (曹国星) who posted photos of Ma Kai’s wife and Ma Chi’s mother on his Weibo showing uncanny similarities in physical features between the two. His post was deleted five minutes later, but not after it was circulated elsewhere.

However, the rumor was dismissed by Ma’s family as mere ‘fabrications’ when contacted by the media. They insist that Ma was born to a ‘humble’ family in Luzhou, Sichuan province and became wealthy by investing his own money.

Ma Chi reportedly has a net-worth of a few million dollars. He owned a three-million dollars penthouse in East Coast and a S$1.4 million dollar limited edition Ferrari GTO599 before it crashed.

Despite the clarification, the rumors continue to spread like wildfire in China with many PRC netizens speculating that he had accumulated his wealth via ‘extraordinary’ means.

Meanwhile, the PRC censors have kicked in with Ma Chi’s Weibo and Sina accounts deleted mysteriously yesterday and no visible traces of his background could be found on the Chinese search engines like Baidu.com.

State media defends PRC Ferrari driver Ma Chi: He is not a ‘heavy drinker’ and has applied for Singapore PR

Posted by temasektimes on May 14, 2012

Despite the massive public outcry over the dangerous driving of PRC Ferrari Driver Ma Chi (photo left), the pro-foreigner state media is having a field day trying to defend him and downplay the severity of his actions which has caused two innocent people their lives so far.

According to by-standers, Ma Chi was reeking of alcohol when his body was extricated from his crumpled Ferrari in the aftermath of the accident, but the Chinese tabloid claimed that he did not drink at a clan gathering that night.

For some strange reasons, Ma Chi was found with another young PRC woman in his Ferrari who is not his wife and whose identity nobody knows at 4.50am in the morning.

The Straits Times then tried another stunning spin by quoting from his friends that he was not a ‘heavy drinker’. It then went on to promote his wealth instead of holding him accountable for the accident:

“Mr Ma’s wife, known only as Madam He, told Wanbao that her husband had bought a $3 million condominium in the East Coast and a $400,000 BMW. The Ferrari was a $1.8 million limited edition car that he bought for his 30th birthday last year.”

Ma was described as a ‘tall, capable, young and handsome’ tycoon who arrived from Sichuan province a few years ago. He was reportedly active in a local clan association for Sichuan natives and was “in the process of applying for permanent residency here before the accident.”

There was little mention made of the Singaporean cabby Cheng Hock Teck who passed away yesterday evening or the Japanese lady passenger in his car who died earlier.

Ma was pronounced dead on the spot and eye-witnesses said his head was almost severed with his neck veins popping out and limbs dismembered, an indication of how fast he was driving before ramming his Ferrari into the taxi.

Bugis Ferrari accident: Man steals $300 from struggling woman in taxi instead of helping her

Posted by temasektimes on May 13, 2012

A man was witnessed stealing the money from a female passenger trapped in a taxi in the aftermath of the fatal accident involving a red Ferrari, Comfort taxi and motorcycle on Saturday morning!

According to one 51 year old Mr Lim who was at the accident scene, he and seven other passer-bys rushed to help the accident victims.

“I saw a Chinese man in his 30s standing besides the woman who was still conscious and crying for help. There were six fifty dollars scattered on the ground near the woman. The man picked them up and walked away briskly,” Mr Lim told a Chinese tabloid.

The Singaporean woman in her 20s eventually died from her injuries in hospital.

The tragic accident was caused by a 30 year old PRC man Ma Chi from Sichuan province who was speeding to beat a red light. Despite causing the accident, he was praised by the tabloids for being a ‘rich, young, successful and handsome’ man.

Some responses on Facebook:

“What was the ‘young, handsome and successful’ husband of a 7 months pregnant wife doing with another PRC woman in his Ferrari smelling of strong alcohol doing 4 am in the morning? No wonder his wife fainted.” – Allen Low

“Ma Chi worth a million? Then how about the innocent lady in the taxi? Offender’s news is available but not the victim’s! What a ‘great’ Singapore newspaper!!!” – Desmond Chia

“This PRC driver has killed an innocent victim & he’s still bring glorified by the papers! unbelievable!” – Cedric Low

“and yes…fuking MSM papers cover more on this bastard than the other victims….till now i dont know how old is the other girl who died, how her famil reacting etc…..the motorcyclist also have not much details. They reported the news like the family of the bastard are veryy sad and poor thing.” – KM Lim
