The New Paper has learnt that another expatriate facing charges over a brawl in Suntec City in 2010 has skipped town -- Briton Robert James Springall fled in December last year.

On Monday, the one who remained, Nathan Robert Miller, an Australian, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to three weeks' jail for punching a cabby.

New Zealander Robert Stephen Dahlberg had absconded last July.

"I am full of rage," says Singaporean student who tried to help the cabby.

With all these absconding by expats, the time is now ripe to rewrite the law.

Why wasn't their travel document (passport) impounded while on bail??


If they need to travel on business or family matters, why not involve their respective embassy to secure their return to face trial ?? If the American can do it, why can't we ??
