Satya (The Truth)

Today's front page on Borneo Bulletin read, "Local woman held in hit and run case". The paper read the charges;

'The suspect will be charged under Section 31 of the Road Traffic Act for failing to stop and render assistance in an accident, which carries a fine of $8,000 and a year of imprisonment and another charge under section 33 (2) for failing to report to the police within 24 hours, which carries a fine of $2,000.

She could also face another charge under Section 27(1) of causing death by reckless or dangerous driving, which carries a fine of $20,000 and seven years' imprisonment.'

I think the charges can only mean 'something' if it means bringing 'closure' to Lee's incident, especially for her family and friends. I hear some say the charges wouldn't compensate the life lost. I agree. But the 'truth' has surfaced, that's 'something' at least.
