SINGAPORE: The wife of Venture Corp chairman and CEO, who was charged last month with slapping a Singapore Airlines stewardess, has been let off with a warning.

Tan Siew Hoon could have been jailed up to one year or fined $1,000, or both.

The 61-year-old had slapped stewardess Then Jiamin while on a flight to Japan last September.

Tan was visibly relieved as she left the Subordinate Courts on Thursday. She and her husband, Wong Ngit Liong, declined to comment. - CNA/ir

I am still speechless....

Wondering what had happened, so i did a search and this is what i had found...


Businessman's wife slapped me on flight, says stewardess
By K.C. Vijayan, Law Correspondent

"Madam Tan apparently became upset when the stewardess was serving Mr Wong during the flight on Sept 20.

The stewardess claims Madam Tan slapped her at around 4pm, when the flight was about 80 minutes from Tokyo's Narita Airport.

Immediately after the alleged assault, Ms Then claims Madam Tan asked her in a loud voice: 'Why are you talking to my husband?' "

Speechless again...

I wonder how humiliated that poor stewardess was facing when she was slapped...
