Mas Selamat Kastari took just 49 seconds to climb out of the ventilation window in the urinal cubicle and jump over the converged perimeter fences? How can they compare him who is limping with a Gurkha guard who is fit and strong?

They blamed it on the ventilation window in the toilet that did not have grilles, the guards who were watching Mas Selamat allowing him to close the door of the urinal cubicle and the perimeter fencing outside the Family Visitation Block which made it easier for Mas Selamat to get out of the detention centre’s premises. The CCTV cameras were not turned on because of upgrading work. We believe you!

Why there is no guard at the back of the toilet since they know that the ventilation window in the toilet do not have grilles?

I agreed that a new detention centre for the internal security detainees should be built in Changi Prison as this Whitley Road Detention Centre look old and have lot of loop holes for another Mas Selamat to escape.
