Singapore to share evidence with FBI on Shane Todd's death: Shanmugam
WASHINGTON (REUTERS) - Singapore's police have pledged to share with the FBI evidence they collected in the death of Mr Shane Todd, an American engineer found hanged in his Singapore apartment in June last year, Singaporean Foreign Minister K. Shanmugam said.
Mr Todd's death is at the centre of what has become a delicate bilateral issue between Singapore and the United States.
"We are committed to working with and making it clear exactly what happened and getting to the bottom of it," Mr Shanmugan said. "The Singapore police force will be happy to share the evidence it has obtained, and the FBI can look through it."
He said all of the government's evidence would be presented for public enquiry, where Mr Todd's family could hire lawyers and take part, and that Singapore had felt it was inappropriate to discuss the case before the enquiry.
