David Widjaja Hartanto

Yesterday, the local court ruled the case of David Widjaja Hartanto, the NTU student who slashed his Professor before taking the plunge as a suicide. His family who heard the judgment was visibly emotional and it was reported that there were some cries and gesturing of disapproval from his family with the judgment outside the court.

When interviewed, the father of the late Widjaja replied nonchalantly that the family would pursue the case and bring the case to the international court.
When I heard of the decision of the family, I was shocked as I am not sure whether pursuing the matter all the way to the international court was appropriate. The Singapore case that many Singaporeans heard so far that was “fought all the way” to the International Court is the Pedra Brancas case.

In my frankest opinion, the family should move on with life and accept the judgment in the face of the many evidences presented.
