Mas Selamat must be ROTFL in his detention cell - he might just beat Chia Thye Poh's record for being detained without trial. But Selamat's Houdini-style evasion was easily outclassed by one female who really made mockery of the highly decorated Keystone Kops. The chronology of how she led the clownish cops on a merry-go-round went like this:

Jan 20, 1.35pm
Three days later, an alert taxi driver reported to the police that a woman was tailgating him. He drove to the Police Cantonment Complex as instructed. There the idiots actually tried to engage in conversation with her, but she just drove off. The weird bit here is that, despite an "island wide alert was issued to the police" for three whole days, the numb skulls failed to register her face or her car.

Same woman tailgated another car into the Sherwood Road premises of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) and drove around the compound like she owned the place. She was stopped only after security officers cornered her. Note: the only alert people in the whole farce here is a taxi driver and security guards. Teo's elite Home Team must have been sleeping at home, waiting to be activated.
Teo's response was predictable: "the breach could have had more serious consequences". Obviously not serious enough to send the Commissioner of ICA and the Commissioner of Police to the woodshed. Russian security officials are now busy hunting down three black widows, and one of the potential suicide bombers has already entered Sochi, site of the Winter Olympics. Let's hope none of the other ladies are heading this way.
