  1. TL;DR - Expat arrested after driving BMW into traffic light at Chinatown and crashing another parked vehicle at Tiong Bahru Pfft, probably got drunk from soju. Watch this 39-second video of the BMW 523i going down in smoke. What happened? A Korean expat was arrested after smashing his 523i into a traffic light in a busy intersection at Chinatown. The driver then crashed into more parked vehicles in the carpark of his condo at Tiong Bahru. The BMW was seen emitting smoke with the bonnet of the car badly dented. The car plate also fell off amidst the ram. The fire brigade was mobilized to put out the fumes. It was reported that the driver was visibly intoxicated and driving erratically before the collision occurred. The impact of the crash was so severe that the traffic light was uprooted and the car was left severely damaged. Did you know? People can be charged with drink-driving in Singapore if they exceed the legal alcohol limit. In Singapore, the limit stands at 35 mg of alcohol for every 100 mL of breath or 80 mg of alcohol for every 100 mL of blood. Online Chat The incident has sent shockwaves not just among the netizens but through the expat community, with many expressing their disappointment and concern about the irresponsible behavior of their fellow expat. Driving under influence is a serious offense in Singapore, and it is even more serious when the suspect is a non-Singaporean. Come Singapore at least obey traffic rules lah... If convicted, he could have his work pass revoked and I guess there goes his job here. En route back to kimchi land soon... Annyeong in advance (oops sorry, but not quite...) ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  2. What happened? Police were alerted to a fight along Stamford Road at around 2.28 A.M. They turned up to find a man casually crossing the road with an axe in his hand. As the man got closer, the police drew their weapons in a bid to get him to stop. The threat worked as the man promptly stopped and dropped his weapon, raising his hands in the air. There is a brief standoff as the police keep the man there for a minute. The lights turned green and the camcar continued on its way. The man was subsequently arrested for possession of an offensive weapon, using criminal force to deter a public servant from the discharge of his duty and using abusive language against a public servant. A 71 year old man was hospitalised during the fight, and a 29 year old man is assisting the police with investigations. We have no information as to the reason why the fight was started, the man's identity, nor the condition of the hospitalised person. Online chatter A couple people praised our police force for arresting the man and ending further harm. Others poked fun at the situations, with a couple pointing out how the situation resembled GTA.
  3. TL;DR - A man was caught driving under the influence (DUI) into Malaysia as his breathalyzer test exceeded the maximum alcohol limit for drink driving. Ever since the borders between Singapore and Malaysia reopened, there have been many incidents reported of Singaporeans getting up to mischief and/or displaying erratic behaviors. Here is just one of the many examples: One good egg does not make a dozen but one bad apple can spoil a barrel. What happened? A man was caught by the Malaysian police for drink driving into Malaysia. Netizens managed to ‘suss out’ and found that this man is a Singaporean as he was driving a SG-registered car (based on his car plate and in-vehicle unit). Under SG law, if you are convicted of drink driving, you can be fined up to $10,000 and jailed for up to a year for first-timers. Repeat offenders can be fined up to $20,000 and jailed for up to two years. Under Malaysia law, a person convicted of driving or attempting to drive whilst their alcohol level exceeds the prescribed limit, shall be sentenced to imprisonment for a maximum of 2 years and a fine of at least RM10,000 and not more than RM30,000. Upon conviction, the driver shall be disqualified from holding a driver’s license for at least two years. It is unclear which country would press charges against him, but either way, it's bad. Let’s hear from the netizens ‘Orbiquek’... (Singlish ver. of serves you right) Kudos to Malaysia's PDRM (a.k.a traffic police) for being so vigilant and arresting the man before he could cause any accident. Takeaway Remember to always make good decisions and plan ahead - if you know you're going to drink, don't drive! Drink and drive is a deadly mix - keep yourself and others around you safe. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  4. SINGAPORE: Lawyer and opposition politician Lim Tean was arrested on Tuesday (Oct 2) for alleged criminal breach of trust and is also being investigated for unlawful stalking, said the Singapore Police Force (SPF) on Friday. The arrest came after Mr Lim failed to comply with a police notice to attend a compulsory interview on Monday to assist with investigations into the two alleged offences, the police said. "As Mr Lim Tean did not cooperate with the notice to attend an interview with police, and had stated clearly that he had no intent to comply, the police had no choice but to arrest Mr Lim Tean in order to conduct the investigations," said SPF in a news release. "This would not have been necessary, if he complied with the police notice to come for an interview," they added. ALLEGED OFFENCES The police said that the counsel of Mr Lim's former client had lodged a police report alleging that that Mr Lim had misappropriated a sum of money awarded to him as damages by the court. Mr Lim had acted for the former client in a motor injury suit, said the police. Separately, a former employee of Mr Lim has also lodged a police report against him, alleging that she was harassed by him while working at his law firm, said the police. The employee has referred the police to text messages that were exchanged between her and Mr Lim, they added. POLICE INTERVIEW The police contacted Mr Lim and issued him with a written notice under the Criminal Procedure Code on Sep 23 to attend a compulsory interview on Sep 28 at the Police Cantonment complex to assist with investigations into the alleged offences. Mr Lim was also told that he could reschedule the interview if he wanted, said the police. "However, Mr Lim Tean replied through his counsel on Sep 27 that he had no intention of turning up for any police interview. He also made baseless allegations that the investigations against him were politically motivated," said the police. "The police have a responsibility to investigate reports which are made, if prima facie they disclose a basis for further investigations. Persons called for police interviews must comply. "Mr Lim Tean’s alleged victims had filed police reports alleging serious offences by him against them, and the police have a duty to investigate the allegations," they said. Lawyer M Ravi said in a Facebook post on Friday that Mr Lim has instructed him to act as defence counsel. https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/lim-tean-police-arrest-alleged-breach-of-trust-investigations-13178292 https://mothership.sg/2020/10/lim-tean-arrested/
  5. Huawei CFO arrested in Canada for violating US sanctions on Iran WASHINGTON: Canada has arrested Huawei's global chief financial officer in Vancouver, where she is facing extradition to the United States on suspicion she violated US sanctions against Iran, the Globe and Mail newspaper reported on Wednesday (Dec 6). Meng Wanzhou, who is one of the vice chairs on the Chinese technology company's board and the daughter of company founder Ren Zhengfei, was arrested on Dec 1 and a court hearing has been set for Friday, a Canadian Justice Department spokesman said, according to the Globe and Mail. Representatives of Huawei, one of the world's largest makers of telecommunications network equipment, could not immediately be reached for comment by Reuters. Officials for the Canadian and US Justice Departments did not immediately respond to a request for comment. US authorities have been probing Huawei since at least 2016 for allegedly shipping US-origin products to Iran and other countries in violation of US export and sanctions laws, sources told Reuters in April. China protests arrest of Huawei CFO in Canada, urges release: Embassy OTTAWA: Beijing on Wednesday (Dec 6) protested the arrest in Canada of Chinese national Meng Wanzhou, the chief financial officer of global telecommunications giant Huawei, and urged her immediate release as she faces extradition to the United States. "At the request of the US side, the Canadian side arrested a Chinese citizen not violating any American or Canadian law," a statement from the Chinese embassy in Canada said. "The Chinese side firmly opposes and strongly protests over such kind of actions which seriously harmed the human rights of the victim. "The Chinese side has lodged stern representations with the US and Canadian side, and urged them to immediately correct the wrongdoing and restore the personal freedom of Ms Meng Wanzhou." The statement added the embassy was closely following developments in the case and would "take all measures to resolutely protect the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese citizens." Meng was arrested in Vancouver on Dec 1, according to Canadian authorities. Her detention comes after US authorities opened an investigation into suspected violations of Iran sanctions by Huawei, one of the world's largest telecommunications equipment and services providers.
  6. https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/courts-crime/5-arrested-more-than-6000-cartons-of-duty-unpaid-cigarettes-seized-by More than 6,000 cartons of duty-unpaid cigarettes were seized by Singapore Customs officers who observed activity at the loading and unloading bay of an industrial building in Woodlands Industrial Park. Four men - three Singaporeans and a Malaysian - as well as one Malaysian woman, all between 21 and 54 years old, were arrested last Thursday, Singapore Customs said in a statement on Monday (Sept 6). Customs officers had observed boxes being transferred into a Singapore-registered truck at the loading and unloading bay of the industrial building and suspected that they contained duty-unpaid cigarettes. They found 1,120 cartons of such cigarettes in the truck and arrested the Malaysian woman and three Singaporean men. Further checks uncovered another 4,928 cartons in another Singapore-registered truck in the vicinity, making it a haul of 6,048 cartons in all. Subsequently, the driver of a Malaysia-registered lorry that was suspected to be used to deliver the cigarettes was arrested at Tuas Checkpoint when he attempted to leave Singapore. The duty as well as goods and services tax (GST) evaded amounted to $516,490 and $41,430. All three vehicles were also seized. The agency said investigations are ongoing. "We would like to seek the cooperation of owners of industrial premises to be alert and look out for suspicious persons and activities to prevent their premises from being misused," said, Mr Yeo Sew Meng, assistant director-general of intelligence and investigation at Singapore Customs. The agency warned that buying, selling, conveying, delivering or storing duty-unpaid goods are serious offences under the Customs Act and GST Act. Offenders can be fined up to 40 times the amount of duty and GST evaded, jailed up to six years, or both. Vehicles used in the commission of such offences are also liable to be forfeited, added the agency. Those with information on smuggling activities or evasion of customs duty or GST can call the Singapore Customs hotline on 1800-233-0000 or e-mail [email protected] ======================= Seems to be an increase in the number of people caught smuggling recently 😔.

  10. Man arrested in Singapore Changi Airport for buying ticket just to wave his wife off at the gate Source: https://edition.cnn.com/travel/article/singapore-airport-ticket-arrest/ (CNN) — With an on-site butterfly dome, cactus garden and four-story slide, Singapore's Changi airport regularly tops rankings of the best airports in the world. But some travelers are taking a little too much of a shine to it. The Singapore Police Force has issued a warning to residents not to "misuse" their boarding passes after a man was arrested for buying a ticket to walk his wife to the gate. A police sign in Singapore Changi airport warns passengers against entering the transit area illegally. Singapore Police Force/Facebook The misuse of boarding passes is an offense in Singapore, where transit areas are considered "protected places." Anyone accessing the gate-side areas at Changi without intending to fly can be prosecuted under Singapore's Infrastructure Protection Act and fined up to S$20,000 (US$14,300) or imprisoned for up to two years. Thirty three people have been arrested under the legislation in the first eight months of 2019. Police said the 27-year-old bought a ticket purely to walk his wife to the gate and had "no intention to depart Singapore." In a Facebook post they added that "passengers who enter the transit areas with a boarding pass should only be there for the purpose of traveling to their next destination." Airport attraction Changi Airport is regularly voted among the world's best. Roslan Rahman/AFP/Getty Images If the idea that anyone would actively want to spend time in an airport sounds odd, you haven't flown through Singapore. When Changi's new Jewel terminal opened in April, it made headlines around the globe for its 40-meter waterfall (the world's largest indoor one), a 14,000-square-meter Canopy Park, complete with a suspension bridge, topiary and mazes, and one of Asia's largest indoor gardens with 3,000 trees and 60,000 shrubs. Overstaying your welcome in the terminal is a thing, here. In 2016, a Malaysian man was jailed after he spent 18 days in Changi, forging boarding passes to gain entry to nine airport lounges. Shortly afterward, a couple was arrested for booking flexible tickets to gain access to the Changi shopping mall, where they bought an iPhone 7. Other passengers have been known to book refundable tickets which they cancel before the flight takes off, having enjoyed the airport.
  11. French teacher from MOE Language Centre arrested in Bangkok for sex with minors SINGAPORE - A Frenchman whom the Ministry of Education (MOE) has confirmed teaches at its Language Centre in Singapore has been arrested in Bangkok for allegedly having sex with children. French-language teacher Jean-Christophe Quenot, 51, was arrested by police in a hotel room in the Thai capital on Monday (Feb 4), according to reports in the Thai media. A check of the MOE Language Centre's website on Thursday showed Quenot listed as a staff member in the French department, but his name was removed later in the day. Metropolitan Police deputy divisional commander Colonel Nakarin Sukhonthawit on Wednesday was also quoted as saying at a press conference in Bangkok that Quenot told the police he had taught French in Singapore. In response to queries from ST, MOE said yesterday: "Jean-Christophe Quenot is a teacher in the French department at MOE Language Centre. We are doing internal checks, and note that this matter is being investigated by the Thai authorities. "MOE takes a serious view of misconduct by our staff and will not hesitate to take disciplinary action against those who do not adhere to our standards of conduct and discipline. In serious cases, their service may be terminated." At Wednesday's press conference, the commander of the Metropolitan Police, Major General Senit Samrarnsamruajkit, alleged that Quenot would meet boys aged 13 to 15 at the Huay Kwang Stadium in Bangkok, and offer to teach them English and coach them football. This started a year ago. He allegedly then invited some boys to his hotel room for sex, in exchange for cash. When police arrested him on Monday, officers found a camera tripod in the hotel room and a video of Quenot having sex with a teenage boy, Thai reports said. They also found a computer with pornographic films, and 36 condoms. On Thursday, The Straits Times spoke with one of Quenot's former students Aaron Pereira, who said he recognised Quenot from his mugshot carried in Thai media and was "completely shocked and in disbelief" over the arrest. The 27-year-old, who works in the aviation sector, studied French as an A-level subject at MOE Language Centre's Bishan campus from 2008 to 2009. The centre, which also has a campus in Newton, is where students pursue a Third Language, such as French, German and Japanese. another one bites the dust with this open policy...dayummm

  13. Boss of Kaki Bukit garage, 60, arrested after allegedly hitting customer's head with hammerA 60-year-old man was arrested after a dispute involving him and a customer broke out in a car garage at 1 Kaki Bukit Avenue 6 on Sep 27. Responding to a Stomp query, the police said that they received a call for assistance at 3.49pm that day. "A 60-year-old man was subsequently arrested for voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means and criminal intimidation," added a police spokesman. A video of the incident that was posted on Facebook last Thursday (Oct 4) shows the two men in an altercation. The video shows both guys standing in front of a Toyota, whose front bonnet was held open by the older guy in a blue shirt. He is believed to be the boss of the car garage. He is seen suddenly letting go of the bonnet, causing it to slam on the younger's guy hands. The pair then started getting into a fight, with the older man waving a hammer in his hand. They also started pushing each other around The older man can be seen wielding his hammer about. On the other hand, the younger guy started shouting, "Come on!" multiple times with his arms outstretched. He also used his chest to repeatedly shove his opponent, despite the latter pushing him away. Even though other people at the scene tried to intervene, the two of them continued tussling. Lianhe Wanbao contacted the bespectacled man in the video, whom they identified as 43-year-old Mr Liu. He said that he had previously recommended the garage to a car driver that was involved in an accident. However, the two parties cancelled their collaboration as they could not come to an agreement about the commission. Prior to the fight, Mr Liu had gotten into an accident and sent his car to the garage. He said that the car garage's boss, however, detained his car and asked him to return his commission of $8,000 instead. Mr Liu believes that the boss was still upset with him for not bringing in business for the garage following the cancelled collaboration. He added: "That day, I went to the garage with a friend to collect my car. The boss insisted that I return the money, even threatening to hit my car with a hammer if I did not do so. "During our argument, he used the wooden end of the hammer to hit me on the back of my head. I called the police afterwards. "Because my head was in pain from being hit, I went to Sengkang Community Hospital, where I was hospitalised and placed under observation for one day." When contacted by Wanbao, the car garage's boss emphasised that he had no intention of injuring the other party. According to him, he went to see a doctor after being shoved over 10 times by Mr Liu and had to rest for three days. He also said that he had to rush to Hong Kong on Saturday (Oct 6) and would go to the police station to assist in investigations upon returning on Thursday (Oct 11). Police investigations are ongoing

  15. ST 4July BANKRUPT former National Kidney Foundation (NKF) chairman Richard Yong has been arrested in Hong Kong for fleeing the country illegally and failing to hand over assets. The Subordinate Courts had issued a warrant for his arrest, and Yong was declared a wanted man on June 13. The charges: Fleeing the country illegally on May 17 and failing to hand over assets as required by the Bankruptcy Act. Yong's departure came in the wake of revelations on May 9 that he had sold three apartments for $7.5 million shortly after losing a suit the NKF had filed against him, ex-board members Loo Say San and Matilda Chua, as well as former chief T.T. Durai. The charity's lawyers on May 11 obtained a Mareva Injunction - requiring Yong to give details of his assets, and to prevent him from disposing of them. Three days later, the NKF filed a police report against Yong alleging that he sold his property to escape paying the $11 million he owes the charity in damages. He was declared bankrupt on May 16, but he crossed the border into Malaysia late that night before the immigration authorities could be alerted. In a statement on June 13, the Ministry of Law said that the Official Assignee (OA) had worked with relevant authorities to determine if Yong fraudulently disposed of his property. The OA is an officer of the court who administers the affairs of bankrupts. Yong was supposed to have filed a Statement of Affairs - a written declaration of a bankrupt's assets and liabilities - to the OA by Tuesday. The statement came to the Insolvency and Public Trustee's Office, but only after it had closed for the day. On May 21, Yong had filed a brief affidavit from Kuala Lumpur stating that he had only $247 in a bank account and that the cash from selling his properties had gone towards repaying loans and legal fees. The Bankruptcy Act states that it is an offence for a bankrupt to give away or transfer assets for a period of five years prior to the date of the bankruptcy order. Those found guilty face up to three years in jail and a maximum $10,000 fine. Bankrupts who leave the country without permission face up to two years in jail and a maximum $10,000 fine.

The original author of the article also denied the involvement of a Filipino family. Police confirmed the arrest of a Singaporean, 26 and an Australian woman, 22. The two were arrested on Feb 6 under the Sedition Act and investigations into the case are ongoing.

  19. SINGAPORE - 27 male Bangladeshi nationals who were radicalised and supported extremist beliefs have been arrested under the Internal Security Act. In a statement on Wednesday (Jan 20), the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) revealed that the group, who had been working in the local construction industry, were arrested by the Internal Security Department (ISD) between Nov 16 and Dec 1 last year. MHA said that of the 27 arrested, 26 were members of a closed religious study group that supported the armed jihad ideology of terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). The other Bangladeshi national was not a member of the group, but was found to be in the process of becoming radicalised and possessed jihadi-related material. "A significant amount of radical and jihadi-related material like books and videos, including footages of children undergoing training in what appeared to be terrorist military camps, were recovered from the possession of the group," MHA said, adding that several members had a shared document that had graphics and instructions on how to conduct "silent killings" Group members had taken measures to avoid detection by authorities, but held weekly gatherings where they discussed armed jihad and shared jihadi-related materials among themselves. "They also targeted the recruitment of other Bangladeshi nationals to grow their membership," the ministry said. Investigations revealed that several of the group had contemplated travelling to and participating in armed jihad in the Middle East. However, although members were encouraged to return to Bangladesh to wage armed jihad against the country's government, it is learnt that they had no plans to carry out terrorist attacks in Singapore. MHA said that the work passes of the 27 had been terminated, and 26 have been repatriated to Bangladesh, where authorities have been informed of the circumstances of their repatriation. The last of the group is currently serving a jail sentence for attempting to leave Singapore illegally, and will be repatriated after he completes his sentence. The arrests come during a period of heightened concerns over terrorism in the region, after two civilians were killed in a bomb attack carried out by ISIS militants in Jakarta last Thursday (Jan 14). Subsequently, Malaysian police also arrested an alleged lone-wolf suicide bomber who planned to carry out an attack in Kuala Lumpur. Meanwhile, Communications and Information Minister Yaacob Ibrahim said in a Facebook post that he was "deeply concerned" over the arrests. "Terrorism is a continuing threat that can have a grave impact on all of us. I appeal that we be more vigilant, whether against radical teachings and ideologies, or of any suspicious activities around us," he wrote. But Mr Yaacob, who is also Minister-in-charge of Muslim Affairs, also called upon Singaporeans not to discriminate against foreign workers, saying that "the actions of a few cannot determine how we treat others who have worked so hard to build our homes, schools and hospitals."

Maybe too stressful after erection........... http://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/courts-crime/sdp-chairman-arrested-for-drug-offence The 51-year-old chairman of the Singapore Democratic Party (SDP), Mr Jeffrey George, has been arrested for a drug offence, The Straits Times understands. SDP secretary-general Chee Soon Juan told the paper last night that the news of Mr George's arrest came as a shock. "I have known Jeff for many years and all this time he has discharged his duties as an SDP member and leader with professionalism. He is respected and well liked by his party colleagues," he said. The Central Narcotics Bureau, when asked if Mr George had been arrested, said through a spokesman: "A 51-year-old man has been arrested for drug-related offences. Investigations are ongoing." A shipping engineer, Mr George was elected chairman of the opposition party in October 2013. He was an election agent for Dr Chee and SDP vice-chairman John Tan in September's general election. Dr Chee added last night: "At this time, the family members need support as they go through a difficult period. They should be left alone to sort things out." Pearl Lee Joyce Lim

  23. Big news in both China and Taiwan now!! http://singaporeseen.stomp.com.sg/singaporeseen/this-urban-jungle/beijing-police-arrests-actor-kai-ko-and-jackie-chans-son-for-marijuana-use The Beijing police have confirmed the drug arrests of actors Kai Ko and Jaycee Chan, the son of action star Jackie Chan, said Chinese website NetEase on Monday night. The police said the arrests were made on Aug 14 in Dongcheng, Beijing, reports The Straits Times Online. They said they arrested, among others, a 32-year-old Hong Kong actor surnamed Chan, a 23-year-old Taiwanese actor surnamed Ko, and a 36-year-old Beijing personal assistant surnamed Sun. Both Chan and Ko tested positive for marijuana and confessed to taking it, the police said. Later, the police found more than 100g of marijuana in Chan’s residence and seized it. A 33-year-old unemployed Beijing man was arrested the next day on suspicion of selling drugs to Chan, the report said. Apple Daily said Chan was suspected of harbouring drug users, an offence which carries a penalty of up to three years in jail. Earlier in the evening, Ko’s agent Angie Chai confirmed his drug arrest, and said he would be detained for 14 days. In a press release issued at 8pm, she said she had just got a call from the Chinese police at 6.30pm, informing her that Ko would be detained for 14 days and that immediate family would soon be allowed to visit him. She wrote: “We only know the fact that Kai Ko made a mistake, but we don’t know the details.” She said she “nearly collapsed” when she got the call. She apologised to the public on his behalf, saying her company had neglected his “life education”. She said she had been anxious since Sunday, when she started hearing rumours about the arrest from her friends in Beijing but did not know how to verify the rumours. Accompanied by a lawyer, she went to a detention centre in Beijing in the afternoon. The computers there did not have any information on Ko, and she left with a “glimmer of hope” that the rumours were false, she said.

Ko shot to stardom with the 2011 film You Are The Apple. On Weibo, his co-star Michelle Chen posted “what a fool”, as well as a crying face.|
