Asked why he flew away to escape US jurisdiction, Oscar winning film director Polanski said in the Marina Zenovich documentary "Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired ", "Well, I, as you say, ran away, because I think that I was very unfortunate to have a judge who misused justice.

The high profiled and former president of Netball Singapore is not one who keeps mum when things are not as they seem to be on the surface. She is now hauled up to court by the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) for failing to have the buildings on her farm in Kranji inspected. Her lawyer accused BCA of "malicious prosecution", since BCA allowed many farm buildings in Kranji to be occupied and used, some more for more than 20 years, without a CSC (Certificate of Statutory Completion), the piece of bureaucratic paper that mandates the 5 year inspection. BCA executive engineer Tan Kwan Joo's response was that they did not take action on those owners as "there were too many of them".
