Jim,

One of your fellow citizens got caned here pretty bad for public peeing and a bit of shouting around. Today I read in the papers, that not paying the right amount of money for a busfare will mean jail here in Singapore.

Now I am not saying you are a murderer, but you probably should reconsider whether law abiding Singapore is the right place to live the life of freedom.

I think Uncle Sam and Singapore have extradition agreements, so if it's that bad that you need run away from those "bogus" charges...

Move to Washington DC and become a Congressman. You'll be in good company.

As Eric said, there is an extradition treaty. Also, you'd have to get permission to get into the country, and both your current status and past hsitory will make that very difficult.

Best bet is to move to Mexico. Cheaper beer than singapore too.

That is funny... :D

My Singaporean wife and I live in Ohio and she says all the fugitives run to Ohio. There seem to have been a lot of fugitives snared here recently.

As far as the criminal goes, don't go to Singapore, and don't come to Ohio. Read the previous post about beer prices. :)

Vaucluse, why must you engage?
When you go in for a job interview, I think a good thing to ask is if they ever press charges.
