PRC Ferrari driver Ma Chi cremated at Mandai crematorium yesterday afternoon

Ma’s pregnant wife and his mother were not present. Both were at his wake at Mount Vernon earlier in the afternoon.
Ma was responsible for causing a fatal accident in Bugis on Saturday morning when his speeding Ferrari beat the red light and rammed straight into a Hyundai Sonata taxi which had the right of way.
Ma was pronounced dead on the spot by paramedics. The Japanese woman passenger in the taxi died hours later in hospital and the cabby Cheng Teck Hock passed away on Sunday evening.
A native of Sichuan province, Ma relocated to Singapore with his family four years ago. He reportedly worked in the finance industry and has a net worth of a few million dollars.
Ma’s family members were spotted wearing expensive suits and carrying branded bags at the cremation. However, none of them have apologized on the behalf of Ma Chi to the victims of the accident – Singaporean cabby Cheng Teck Hock and his Japanese passenger Shigemi Ito. Neither did they offer any compensation to them.
Despite Ma Chi’s role in causing the accident, the pro-foreigner mainstream media tried to portray him as an innocent ‘victim’ and gave extensive publicity to his grieving family to win public sympathy while conveniently ignoring the plight and suffering of the real victims who have died or suffered serious injuries as a result of his reckless and dangerous driving.
The Chinese tabloids had earlier heaped generous praises on Ma Chi, glamorizing him as “Young and Capable, Tall and Handsome” (年轻有为，高大英俊) and trumpeting his numerous ‘contributions’ to Singapore since arriving from Sichuan province a few years ago:
