US and Singapore officials discuss investigations into Shane Todd's death
The United States (US) embassy in Singapore said on Thursday that law enforcement officers from the US and Singapore met on Monday to discuss the investigation into Dr Shane Todd's death here.
Discussions about the case were productive and forthright, said the embassy in a statement. "The co-operation and information sharing flowing from the dicussions among law enforcement officials are consistent with the assurances provided in Washington and in accordance with the legal frameworks of both countries," added the embassy.
This statement and the meeting on Monday, followed a meeting between Singapore Foreign Minister K. Shanmugam and his US counterparts Secretary of State John Kerry and US Attorney-General Eric Holder last week during Mr Shanmugam's visit to Washington, D.C.
Dr Todd was found hanged in his apartment here last June shortly after he quit the Institute of Microelectronics. His parents have alleged that he could have been murdered over his research.
