The CIA has concluded that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul last month, contradicting the Saudi government’s claims that he was not involved in the killing, according to people familiar with the matter.

The CIA’s assessment, in which officials have said they have high confidence, is the most definitive to date linking Mohammed to the operation and complicates the Trump administration’s efforts to preserve its relationship with a close ally. A team of 15 Saudi agents flew to Istanbul on government aircraft in October and killed Khashoggi inside the Saudi consulate, where he had come to pick up documents that he needed for his planned marriage to a Turkish woman.


........The CIA’s conclusion about Mohammed’s role was also based on the agency’s assessment of the prince as the country’s de facto ruler who oversees even minor affairs in the kingdom. “The accepted position is that there is no way this happened without him being aware or involved,” said a U.S. official familiar with the CIA’s conclusions.

On the fateful day of 7 November 2018, Madam Chua had just came back from her scheduled jab in the morning at KKH in her battle with cancer, of which her chances of recovery was high, and was struggling in great pain before she suddenly stopped responding. Immediately, her son, Cheng Yu, dialled 995 and performed CPR on her till the paramedics arrived. The paramedics took over for some time until they brought her to the hospital for resuscitation till she passed away, and Cheng Yu was with her all the way.

Madam Chua is a single Mother, leaving behind 2 children, Cheng Yu, 23 and Shi Ting, 18 respectively. She had single handedly raised 2 wonderful children, put them through school.

Cheng Yu is currently on his first semester of 3rd year in NUS with 1.5 years to go, and Shi Ting is currently taking her GCE ‘A’ Level. During that fateful day, Shi Ting was in the library studying for her first paper the next day, and it must be heart-breaking for her to continue her exam the next day.

Both Cheng Yu and Shi Ting lost their most beloved Mother, and not to mention their financial support to put them through school. Their only relatives left are their aunty and their aged old grandfather.

This case was brought to us from Jeremy of Hock Koon Casket, and while we’re helping both Cheng Yu and Shi Ting with the funeral funds, the immediate assistance is to keep them going for their sudden lost of financial support at home.

Both Cheng Yu and Shi Ting now are at a loss and feeling completely heartbroken, having loss their one and only Mother.

Giveasia Kindness would like to help both Cheng Yu / Shi Ting to raise at least $2000 a month for a period of 9 months, to help them tie through this difficult period, and after Madam Chua’s funeral, we’ll be helping also to pay the difference for Madam Chua’s funeral short-for using our Dignity Fund.

Please open up your heart to help this pair of brother and sister who have just lost their Mother, and funds raised will be managed by Giveasia Kindness to be disburse to them monthly.

Thank you.

SMRT Group chief executive officer Neo Kian Hong said on Friday (Nov 16) that there are no "deep-seated cultural issues" within the company as suggested by predecessor Desmond Kuek, and stressed that he will use a hands-on approach to engage staff.

Speaking to reporters at the Kim Chuan Depot, Mr Neo, a former chief of defence force, used a military analogy to emphasise that the SMRT management has to take responsibility for the company's performance.

"In some militaries, they use this term - 'there are no poor soldiers, there are only poor leaders'," said Mr Neo. "This is a team sport. The whole organisation is required."

SINGAPORE (THE NEW PAPER) - The owner of a local food delivery service has become uncontactable after apparently owing owners of several dozen food outlets thousands of dollars.


What To Eat, which started its business in 2013, vacated its office premises in Geylang about two weeks ago.


Its website and social media pages have also been shut down.


When The New Paper knocked at the last known home address of its director, Mr Benson Lo Kwang Meng, 40, in Whampoa on Tuesday (Nov 13), no one opened the door.


Three food business owners told TNP they are each owed thousands of dollars for food they delivered through What To Eat.


Mr Anthony Fok, 34, who owns Little Gobbles Cafe, said: "It has not paid us since we signed up with it in March, and now we can't contact it.
