Exceptional people: Locals speak out to right an injustice
Mr Mohamed Ayub Shaik Dawood and Mr Roslan Zainal became key witnesses in a retrial of Norwegian Arne Corneliussen who was originally sentenced to jail for assaulting Singaporean cabbie Chan Chuan Heng at Boat Quay.
Their testimony helped quash Mr Corneliussen's guilty plea and conviction midway through his jail term - a rare occurrence.
Chan was found guilty of providing false information with intent to cause a public servant to use his lawful power to injure another person.
He was also guilty of a second charge of voluntarily causing hurt to Mr Corneliussen.
