Is she the "slapped" stewardess?


Sorry for the size of the pic but was Ms Then,the SIA gal who was slapped by a super rich passenger's wife got what she wanted? An out of court settlement(max is 60K)must have pleased Ms.Then even tho it could be a paltry sum of maybe 10K only (to the passenger concerned).
Many were disappointed when the case was settled out of court. Many expected to savour the secrets of how the super rich live to be revealed in court but alas it is not be.
Perhaps we should wait for another case of abuse by wealthy passengers against crew and hope this time it would a criminal charge rather than a civil suit.

The thing that I am concerned is the legal fees of the plaintiff, who paid? If she had to pay her own legal fees, there is nothing much left to compensate her!


Recently, a man slapped an SBS driver for driving too slowly. He was given a jail sentence for assault. The Penal Code provides for a jail term for assault of a public servant, in this case, a public transport worker. A cabin crew working on board an airline is also a public transport worker. So why the difference in sentence meted out?

The only reason that I can think of is that money speaks. It all depends on who you are. I am enraged at the Courts for not upholding criminal justice. The monetary compensation is the civil suit. But the assault is a criminal offence under the Penal Code for which a jail term is mandatory
