    Why should they carry such a large sums of money and tempt robbers rather then credit salaries direct to the employees' bank accounts? Don't they know that we are heading towards a cashless society!!?

    In many countries that is how they pay salaries. Except paying buses and taxis everything is paid into bank accounts. But because we are the Center of Excellence in Aisa we have homegrown methods for everything.

    Saw the video footage on TV News yesteday. It seems rather a strange occurance how the robbery was carried out. I feel its a inside job.

    Why the opposition don't put pressure on the government to take responsibility for all these matters?
