Singapore Airlines to refund passengers stranded in Azerbaijan
Singapore Airlines will be offering a refund to passengers of SQ317 which had to make an emergency landing in Azerbaijan on Sunday. The root cause of the problem that forced the plane to make the landing is currently being investigated, said the airline in a statement. The airlines said it was focusing on a door on the main deck that appears to have suffered a leak, leading to the change in cabin pressure. This door will be removed and examined thoroughly by SIA and specialists from airplane maker Airbus, said SIA in a statement. A replacement door will be fitted to the aircraft in Baku, the capital city of Azerbaijan, before it returns to Singapore for a more thorough inspection, it added.

SMRT consults panel of experts to improve its rail network
A panel of engineering and transport experts met for the first time on Monday to make recommendations on how rail operator SMRT could improve the performance of its rail network. SMRT chief executive Desmond Kuek had said last year that he would put in place a technical advisory panel to beef up its engineering strengths. On Monday and Tuesday, Mr Kuek hosted the panel of international and local technical experts. The panel is chaired by Professor Alfred Huan, executive director of A*STAR's Institute of High Performance Computing, and comprises seven members from A*STAR, NUS, NTU, SUTD, Imperial College, KCPM Consulting and Sentosa Development Corp. SMRT said the panel gave advice on initiatives about rail engineering development, business process re-engineering and technological innovation. The operator said it will hire more engineers in the coming years, and move towards a Publicly Available Specification (PAS55) certification, a standard for the management of infrastructural assets Source: http://www.straitstimes.com/breaking-news/singapore/story/smrt-consults-panel-experts-improve-its-rail-network-20140107

Little India Riot: Workers' rights group makes recommendations on conduct of inquiry
Workers' rights group Workfair Singapore has made recommendations to the Committee of Inquiry (COI) investigating the Dec 8 Little India riot, in a four-page statement on Friday. These include recommendations that cabinet ministers not make "further pronouncements of their views" on the causes of the riot, in order to "safeguard the integrity" of the COI. The group also requested that the committee's deliberations start after criminal proceedings end, "to ensure that there is no conflict of process or of evidence", and that the group asked for all proceedings of the COI to be open to members of the public and the media. Given the "gravity of the incident", the group also requested Leader of the House and Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen to ensure that a full debate on the findings of the COI's report is held in Parliament. Earlier this week, local rights group Maruah also urged officials not to jump to what it says could be premature conclusions on what caused the Little India riot. Its president Braema Mathi said that some leaders have already made assumptions, such as drunkenness being a possible cause. source :http://www.straitstimes.com/the-big-story/little-india-riot/story/little-india-riot-workers-rights-group-makes-recommendations-c
