The offensive and unacceptable articles that have been published on the Singapore Straits Times on July 2nd and July 4th. are an insult to Italy and Italians. In spite of several complaints letters sent to the newspaper both from Italian residents in Singapore and the Italian Embassy, we are still to hear from Mr. Rob Hughes and the Straits Times on why such insulting articles were allowed to be published.
We demand a full apology immediately.
As for me I will only say this to Signore Hughes: Sutor, ne ultra crepidam!
