EXPOSED: Woffles Wu is a nephew of late Singapore President Ong Teng Cheong
Posted by temasektimes on June 17, 2012
Prominent plastic surgeon Woffles Wu, who was let off with a mere ‘touch’ on his wrist for asking his employee to take the rap for him in a speeding offence is a nephew of the late Singapore President Ong Teng Cheong.
Woffles was fined only $1,000 for abetting Kuah Yit Wah to take the rap for him twice in 2005 and 2006 after he was caught speeding along Lornie Road instead of the usual jail term.
In contrast, a 51 year old sales executive Charlie Lim Chau Lee was jailed for six months for asking others to take the blame for his traffic offence in September 2010. (read more here)
The shocking verdict caused a massive outcry among Singaporeans who were perturbed at the light sentence imposed including PAP MP Hri Kumar Nair.
According to an article published in The New Paper in 2006, it was revealed that Woffles Wu is a nephew of Ong Teng Cheong, Singapore’s first elected president who passed away in 2001:

We have also received some unverified tip-offs from anonymous sources that Woffles Wu is ‘well-connected’ and knows quite a number of prominent figures including PAP MPs within the establishment.
Meanwhile, the government and the state media have gone into a propaganda overdrive to convince Singaporeans that the verdict is ‘fair’ with Law Minister Shanmugam saying that a fine is the ‘norm’ for such cases and that investigations are still ‘ongoing’ into Woffles’ speeding offence which will probably cost him a few ‘peanuts’ and demerit points.
