The Committee of Inquiry (COI) hearing into the Little India riot which took place on Dec 8 last year is an opportunity to take stock of events, address concerns and consider improvements that reduce the risk of such an incident from recurring, said Senior State Counsel David Khoo.
He said: “Above all, it brings us a step closer to ensuring that while our nation cannot be crisis-proof, we are always crisis-prepared.”
Citing “much to do in the coming weeks”, Khoo said the three main themes of the COI, which is expected to last six weeks, can be summed up in three words: how, why and what.
Firstly, he said that the hearing aims to find out how the accident which killed Indian national Sakthivel Kumaravelu, 33, occurred, how the riot unfolded and how the authorities managed the riot. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
