Ms Saw remains defiant and went on to defend SMRT’s ‘track record’ in an interview with MediaCorp’s Channel 8.
“SMRT may not be the best transport company in the world, but our services are up to standard…,” she said in Mandarin.
When asked if SMRT will get fined by the Land Transport Authority (LTA), Ms Saw retorted callously:
“If LTA decides to fine us, so be it.”
In response to the security breach, an ‘independent’ committee will be set up to conduct a comprehensive review of security measures and management of the company with Ms Saw chairing it.
Ms Saw added that top priority for the company now is to ensure all security gaps are immediately addressed and added that the perimeter defence is the most important in preventing any sort of breach.
so we will expect another fare increment??
