Maid tortured and killed by local employers

Why has it taken so long for the government to apprehend the employers? It has been nearly 5 years. Singapore is too lenient when it comes to apprehending perpetrators involved in foreign domestic worker abuse cases. Oftentimes I see them get hit with a fine or short jail time at most. I really hope the terrible employers in this case are prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

It's possible there was some evidence gathering required back in MM. Also the employers were probably trying to buy off AKA "compound" the relatives. I also suspect we have foreign talent involved here (not mentioned at all in the MSM) and I'm wondering whether they absconded to their home country and had to be extradited or tricked into coming back to be charged.
