"Remember your place in society before you engage in political debate. . .people should not take on those in authority as 'equals'." - Former Foreign Minister George Yeo
"I was confident that it [would] not in any way affect my ability to be impartial, objective and non-partisan." -- Calvin Cheng (July 2009)
The original quotations post was getting a bit long, so I've shifted some of the excerpts onto this new post, which features Mr. Yoong's blog excerpts from 2014+.
Mr. Yoong Siew Wah was the Director of Singapore’s Internal Security Department (ISD) from 1971 to 1974. He was Director of the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) in the 1960s, and had a distinguished career in the Singapore Special Branch in the 1950s.
