There is a Chinese saying that goes “天网恢恢，疏而不失” (tian wang hui hui, shu er bu shi). It means that the hands of justice will eventually catch up with the culprit. As long as you commit a crime, you will receive punishment.
On 5th July 1996, a then-43-year-old man was the victim of an armed robbery case. He had just withdrawn money from an OCBC bank and was returning to his car. He lost about $44,000 to the robbers who fled on a stolen motorcycle.
There were a total of 3 suspects involved and the police managed to arrest 2 of them shortly after. The third guy managed to escape to Malaysia where he remained for about 22 years.
Now 59 years old in 2018, he was arrested by the Royal Malaysia Police and deported back to Singapore. Thus, no matter where you are, no matter how far, the law will eventually catch up to you.
If convicted, the man will face a jail term of up to 14 years and up to 12 strokes of the cane.
