Romanian diplomat Dr. Silviu Ionescu fled Singapore after allegedly racking up three victims in two separate hit-and-run acidents on Dec. 15, 2009. He was seen fleeing from a black Audi belonging to the Romanian Embassy in Singapore. One of his victims, Tong Wai, 30, died on Christmas Day.
When questioned by police, Ionescu and his driver gave two different accounts. He said that the car was stolen and then discovered by him and his driver around 3 am. The driver said that the diplomat simply informed him of the theft later.
After fleeing, Dr Ionescu insisted that he was innocent but said that he could not return to Singapore due to “poor health” and that it is highly unlikely that he would be involved in the investigation.
