‘What about the lack of hygiene?’

Letter from M Lukshumayeh

MR SHEIK Allaudin Mohideen has had his licence suspended and will be charged in court. With that, an individual has been held accountable for the food poisoning outbreak at Geylang Serai. What about the rat infestation and the lack of hygiene and cleanliness?

Should not the National Environment Agency (NEA) and the market’s management committee (MC) be held accountable? Surely it must be obvious that if NEA or the MC had undertaken their duties diligently, such a tragedy might not have happened?

It has always been said that not only must justice be done, it must also be seen to be done. In this instance, it makes one wonder if there is true accountability.
