SINGAPORE: Singapore’s attention was gripped in recent weeks by the acquittal of Parti Liyani , a foreign domestic worker, or FDW for short, who had been accused by her former employer of theft.

An earlier report by Vanity Fair revealed how the late Princess of Wales was left humiliated in 1993 during an event that was also attended by Charles’ then-mistress, Camilla. “Earlier in the year, the royal family gathered for a reception aboard the royal yacht, H.M.Y.
