Woffles had allegedly abetted 83 year old Kuan Yit Wah to provide misleading information to the police. He had then lied to the police that he was the driver of a car caught speeding on Lornie Road at 4pm on Sept 11 2005 when the driver was Woffles.
If convicted, Woffles could be fined up to $1,000, jailed for up to six months, or sentenced to both.
The case raised some eyebrows over the length of time – seven years to be exact taken for Woffles Wu to be charged in court leading some to question the efficiency of the Singapore police.
However, the offence would not have come to light at all if not for one persistent ex-staff of Woffles Wu who lodged a police report in January this year.
Below is an excerpt of an email we received from her:
Teresa Wong (TW) was a former staff of Woffles Wu who was jailed for one year and three months in 2010 for criminal breach of trust. Our informant claimed that she was a former colleague of Teresa Wong.
“TW lodged her complaint in 2009/2010 and nothing came of it. I lodged my complaint to the proper channel (via) the Traffic Police in January 2012 and within three months, in April 2012, WW has been charged. So if I had not personally pursued this case, despite TW warning me not to, perhaps WW would have got off scot free.”
We are unable to verify her identity, but she has given us many other detailed information which we are unable to reveal here as we have received lawyers’ letters from Dr Woffles Wu to delete comments posted here earlier by other parties.
Getting a fall guy for traffic offences is a serious crime and it is absolutely shocking that the traffic police is unable to detect it earlier and fined the wrong person instead (Kuah Yit Wah)
Dr Woffles Wu will be attending a court hearing tomorrow and we wish him best of luck.
