  2. BANGKOK (AP) - Thai police are pressing drunk driving charges against the Red Bull energy drink heir accused of killing a police officer while speeding in his Ferrari and fleeing the scene. Police say tests taken in the hours after Monday's crash showed 27-year-old Vorayuth Yoovidhaya's blood alcohol content was at 0.063, exceeding the legal limit of 0.05. Police said on Thursday that the findings could result in a stiffer penalty for Vorayuth, who was originally charged with causing death by reckless driving. Police say Vorayuth has admitted to driving the Ferrari that struck and killed the officer but says the officer swerved in front of his vehicle.

  3. Driver of Maserati found guilty of causing grievous hurt to policeman, faces 59 other charges Source: https://www.msn.com/en-sg/news/singapore/driver-of-maserati-found-guilty-of-causing-grievous-hurt-to-policeman-faces-59-other-charges/ar-BBXMY4f?li=BBr8Cnr Singapore—Thirty-five-year-old Lee Cheng Yan has been found guilty of voluntarily causing grievous hurt when he dragged police officer Staff Sergeant Khairulanwar Abd Kahar in his Maserati at a speed between 79 km/h to 84 km/h in an incident on November 17, 2017 at Bedok Reservoir Road. He was convicted by District Judge Ng Peng Hong on Wednesday, December 4, who also found him guilty of nine additional charges, which includes obstruction of justice and failing to stop after the accident. This is aside from 59 other charges that Mr Lee is facing, that have to do with illegal money lending and online gambling, which will be ruled on later. Additionally, on the day when he dragged the police officer, he was actually forbidden from driving due to previous traffic violations, and lacked the required third-party risk insurance for his Maserati when the incident occurred. On that day, Officer Khairulanwar apprehended Mr Lee as he drove down Bedok Reservoir Road shortly before 9:30 in the evening, as he had seen that Mr Lee had no seat belt on. The officer then approached the driver’s side of Mr Lee’s car. When he stood beside Mr Lee’s open window, the driver of the Maserati “fled the scene by suddenly reversing the Maserati, before accelerating quickly forward while the victim was standing next to the driver-seat door,” according to Deputy Public Prosecutor Timotheus Koh. Unfortunately, Officer Khairulanwar’s uniform got stuck in the car window, and he was dragged for over 100 meters, finally falling on the road. Mr Lee then drove away. The policeman sustained pain in his right knee, neck and lower back, and had to take 20 days’ medical leave. Mr Lee left the Maserati near Aljunied Road, at Willow Avenue, and later sought refuge with a friend, Jeff Chan, who tried to convince him to turn himself in. He borrowed a shirt from Mr Chan and threw his own shirt away. He was eventually arrested at Mr Chan’s house at 2 o’clock in the morning on November 18 and charged in court on that same day. Mr Lee claimed his innocence, saying he had lent his car to an acquaintance known as “Kelvin,” whom his defence team had never been able to produce at his trials. Nor was Mr Lee himself able to give any pertinent information about “Kelvin“ such as his last name or address. Concerning Kelvin, Senthilkumaran Sabapathy, the Deputy Public Prosecutor on the case told Mr Lee, “You are obviously lying.” The other DPP, Timotheus Koh, said, “The defence is conspicuously silent on the fact that the accused has, to date, failed to produce this Kelvin, even though Kelvin is key to the defence’s case. He said Kelvin was the driver, Kelvin caused grievous hurt, Kelvin drove dangerously. Kelvin is a cornerstone to the defence’s case. Yet all they can muster … is that the accused was not asked by the prosecution and the police for more details about Kelvin.” As he has been deemed a serious flight risk, Mr Lee’s bail was increased from S$10,000 to S$70,000. He will be back in court on January 14, 2020. If he is found guilty, he may receive a maximum jail term of 15 years, as well as caning and/or a fine. -/TISG

  5. new low here ... Son and mother charged with faking death to obtain CPF, insurance claims SINGAPORE: A man and his mother were charged on Friday (Apr 12) with faking her death to obtain Central Provident Fund (CPF) and insurance claims, the police said. Abraham Rock, 35, and his mother Talat Farman, 53, are accused of making more than S$3.7 million in false claims. Insurance firm AXA lodged a police report on Nov 13, 2018, after it found several irregularities in the documents relating to Farman’s purported death in Pakistan. By then, S$49,000 had already been paid out from the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) under the Dependants' Protection Scheme while S$80,331.23 was paid out from her CPF account. Officers from the Commercial Affairs Department arrested Rock on Nov 21, 2018. Farman was also subsequently arrested. Rock faces a total of 11 charges, including charges of engaging in a conspiracy to commit cheating, giving false information, making a false statutory declaration and providing false evidence. His mother faces five charges of engaging in a conspiracy to cheat. If found guilty of cheating, the pair faces up to 10 years in jail and a fine for each charge. For making a false statutory declaration or providing false evidence, they face up to seven years in jail and a fine for each charge. If found guilty of giving false information, they face up to one year in jail and a fine of up to S$5,000 for each charge. Both are out on bail of S$15,000 each and will return to court on May 10. The police said that they worked closely with the insurers during the investigation. “In our continuous effort to combat fraud, it is vital for all insurers to be proactive in detecting and reporting suspicious cases to the authorities,” the police said.

    President scholar tio charged!

    President's Scholar charged with false entries in SAF documents to have case re-tried http://www.straitstimes.com/breaking-news/...have-case-re-tr By Ian Poh A 28-year-old army captain, who was charged with making false entries in an official document, will have his case re-tried after a military appeals court quashed his conviction. Sherwayn Tan, 28, had been fined $2,000 for falsely indicating he had used a Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) facility to train soldiers under him, and another unrelated charge. He also received a letter of discharge from the Defence Ministry (Mindef) following his guilty plea in a Subordinate Military Court last July. But on Monday, a five-man Military Court of Appeal unanimously decided that that the conviction be set aside following an appeal by the infantry officer, who is also a President's Scholar. Tan holds an Economics degree from the London School of Economics. It is understood the SAF scholar, who enlisted for military service in 2004 and had a clean disciplinary record prior to the offences, is nearing the end of his six-year bond.
  7. Forklift operators in S’pore charged for bribery!!! On Dec. 11, two forklift operators in Singapore were charged for allegedly receiving small value bribes from truck drivers. The forklift operators, Chen Ziliang and Zhao Yucun, are Chinese nationals employed by Cogent Container Depot Pte Ltd. According to a press release by the Corrupt Practices Investigations Bureau (CPIB), both of them allegedly obtained bribes in exchange for not delaying the collection of containers. Chen was charged for attempting to obtain a S$1 bribe from a truck driver on Oct. 20, 2017, as well as receiving bribes from other truck drivers between May 2016 and March 2018. Chen’s counterpart, Zhao, was charged for obtaining similar bribes from truck drivers between September 2014 and March 2018. A Straits Times report mentioned that both Chinese nationals were each offered bail of S$5,000 and will be back in court on Jan. 9 next year. “Zero-tolerance approach” to corruptionThe total amount received from bribes was not stated by CPIB. However, CPIB emphasised that Singapore adopts a “zero-tolerance approach” towards corruption, and “bribes of any amount or kind will not be tolerated”: “Employees are expected to carry out their duties fairly instead of obtaining bribes in exchange for favours. Even if the bribe amount is as low as $1, they can be taken to task. Bribes of any amount or any kind will not be tolerated.” Under the Prevention of Corruption Act, any person who is convicted of a corruption offence can be fined up to S$100,000 or sentenced to imprisonment of up to five years or to both.

  10. WHY?!! Malaysian charged with committing incest with nieceBUTTERWORTH: A 36-year-old jobless man claimed trial at the Sessions Court here to committing incest with his 15-year-old niece at a guest house near here on Christmas Day. The man, whose name was not revealed to protect the identity of his niece, was charged with committing the offence which is said to have taken place at a guest house in Perkampungan Berapit between 2am and 4am on Dec 25, 2017. The accused was charged under Section 376B of the Penal Code for incest, which carries a jail term of 10 to 30 years and whipping upon conviction. Under Section 376B, a person is said to have committed incest if he has sexual intercourse with another person whose relationship to him is such that he is not permitted to marry her under the law, religion or custom. Sessions judge Noor Aini Yusof denied bail and fixed Feb 6 for mention pending a medical report. DPP Roslina Idris prosecuted while the accused was unrepresented. According to initial police investigations, the girl had followed her uncle to the guest house after he allegedly told her that her father had been arrested by the police on Christmas Eve. Central Seberang Prai OCPD Asst Comm Nik Ros Azhan Nik Abdul Hamid said the man then gave her a soft drink and allegedly raped her. http://www.asiaone.com/malaysia/malaysian-charged-committing-incest-niece

  12. Malaysians are likely going to protest again. Just in time for his by-election. I thought Malaysia Judicial system very independent one? LOL. You think the Malaysians will protest near Merlion again? http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-26479642 Malaysia: Anwar Ibrahim sodomy acquittal overturned A Malaysian court has overturned the acquittal of opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim on sodomy charges, upholding a government appeal. Mr Anwar led the opposition to its strongest ever performance in the May 2013 general elections. While homosexual acts are illegal in Muslim-majority Malaysia, very few people are ever prosecuted. Mr Anwar has always maintained the charges were part of a political smear campaign. The court decision may affect Mr Anwar's plans to compete in a key by-election in the state of Selangor this month. His lawyers are expected to appeal the court ruling, Reuters news agency reported. 'Selective persecution' In 2008, Mr Anwar was accused of having sex with a male aide. A High Court cleared him of the charges in 2012, citing a lack of evidence. The government later appealed against his acquittal. Ahead of the court decision, rights group Human Rights Watch called the government appeal a "travesty of justice". The group said it was a sign of Prime Minister Najib Razak's "selective persecution of his political opponents". Correspondents say Mr Anwar is seen as the key challenger to the ruling party, which has been in power since Malaysia's independence in 1957. The ruling Barisan Nasional coalition won 133 of the 222 seats in parliament in the 2013 elections - although it won the elections, it was the coalition's worst ever result. Thousands of Malaysian opposition supporters rallied against the result, alleging that the polls were fraudulent. Mr Anwar was previously a member of the Barisan Nasional coalition, but fell out with top leaders and was sacked in 1998. He was then charged with sodomy and corruption, and given a six-year jail term for abuse of power, which sparked huge street protests. In 2000 he was also found guilty of sodomy with his wife's driver and jailed for a further nine years. In late 2004 Malaysia's Supreme Court overturned the sodomy conviction, freeing him from jail. He then emerged as a leader in the opposition movement, leading it to increasingly strong performances in both the 2008 and 2013 elections.

  20. saw this article a few days ago but no time to post until today to sum up the case, girl was fought off her drunk rapist. during the struggle, she broke his erected penis before fleeing. she was charged for causing intentional injury to the rapist because rapist was bleeding badly (when she broke his penis) and she didnt call for help or police in time to save the rapist. how ridiculous is this charge?! http://mp.weixin.qq.com/s?__biz=MjM5MDAxMTgyMA%3D%3D&mid=200664719&idx=1&sn=720a38f5fa80beef9f077487bda8ffce&scene=4#rd 女子拒绝强.奸,被判刑3年!难道要我张开双腿迎接你们吗? 2014-09-18 愤怒者 聆听心语 河南洛阳市一女子因为太漂亮,在被强丨奸时,不主动配合强丨奸,导致强丨奸者生殖器官折断,因失血过多而身亡。昨日洛阳市洛龙区法院审结此案,判决该女子构成过失致死罪,缓刑3年,并赔偿被害人江某家属经济损失8.8万元。 该女子在被施暴时,因不配合强丨奸而导致对方身亡。昨日,洛阳市洛龙区法院审结了这起“不配合强丨奸致死案”。本是健康快乐的宋丽,被判处有期徒刑三年,缓刑三年执行。 洛龙区关林镇一女青年宋丽加完夜班后,单身一人走在回家的路上,被刚吃过宵夜喝过酒的公务员江某盯上,江某按住宋丽的嘴将她拖到树林深处实施强丨奸,宋丽在被强丨奸的过程中没有配合江某,导致江某生殖器官折断,在明知李某喝酒有醉意的情况下,也不及时打120求救,导致江某失血过多而死亡。 洛阳市洛龙区检察院向洛龙区法院提起公诉,指控宋丽犯有故意伤害罪。 公诉机关认为,宋丽明知自己的行为会造成他人身体上的伤害,却放任这种结果的发生,最终造成他人死亡的后果,其行为已构成故意伤害罪。 宋丽的辩护律师认为,宋丽由于天黑加上慌张,没有发现强丨奸者受伤,更重点的是宋丽当时是处女,事后发现身上流的血以为是处女血,在不知道强丨奸者的受伤的情况下,所以错过了救人时间,加上强丨奸者事前服用伟哥(法医鉴定书标明),兴奋过度而忘记了流血,这是强丨奸不慎致死,所以宋丽在主观上并没有故意伤害江某。 法院认为,被告人宋丽应当预见强丨奸者江某可能造成“一日二变”的结果,可宋丽在被奸时因疏忽大意没有预见,导致江某死亡,如果宋丽在被奸后及时报案,***出警也能及时发现李某受务,能及时的抢救过来,但宋丽不相信公共安全专家机关,为自己的名声着想而迟迟不愿报案,宋丽的行为应构成过失致人死亡罪。 另外,鉴于被告人宋丽在案发后认罪态度比较好,同时,被告人积极进行民事赔偿,已取得被害人家属谅解,有悔罪表现,故从轻处罚。 强奸不但无罪,而且变得有理了。被强奸的不但要判刑,而且还要有悔罪表现,才予轻判。以后女人遇上劫色,是不是应该主动配合强奸,在被强奸过程中,还要注意男人的阴茎是否折断,要是折断了还要即时拨打120,免得流血死亡,因被强奸而坐牢,此时你如果也和小编一样感到不公平,请动动小手转发出去,这个没有任何的酬劳,我只是默默的想对手机屏幕或电脑屏幕面前的你轻轻说句:世界需要爱!!!

    Istana Hackers Charged In Court.

    Wa lao... Still can smile somemore. http://www.straitstimes.com/breaking-news/singapore/story/istana-site-hacking-businessman-charged-unauthorised-modification-webp Businessman Delson Moo was charged in court on Friday with two counts of unauthorised modification of computer material under the Computer Misuse and Cybersecurity Act. This is in relation to the recent hacking of an Istana webpage on Nov 8. Moo had allegedly intruded into the website twice at 12.34am that night through its search function and modified the code to cause the site to display a picture of an old woman pointing her middle finger, along with a string of offensive words in Hokkien. The case against the 42-year-old has been stood down until 2.30pm, to allow time for a decision to be made after he requested for the court's permission to leave the country from Dec 4 to Dec 8. Student Melvin Teo, the second suspect reportedly linked to the cyber intrusion of the Istana website, is expected to appear in court at the same time to face charges. The 17-year-old's name was not indicated in the charges against Moo. Moo, who remains on $10,000 bail, arrived at the court earlier at about 9.15 am. He was accompanied by a woman, believed to be his wife, and lawyer M. Ravi. Mr Ravi is also representing James Raj Arokiasamy, whom court documents previously identified as the alleged hacker who used "The Messiah" pseudonym. The 35-year-old accused of hacking the Ang Mo Kio Town Council website has been remanded for further investigations. Police had said previously that the ases against Moo and Melvin are not linked to James Raj, who also faces drug offences committed in 2011.

  23. http://www.tremeritus.com/2014/04/12/employers-agents-charged-for-falsely-declaring-41-fts-salaries/ 7-11 stores charged for falsely declaring 41 FTs’ salaries April 12th, 2014 | Author: Editorial MOM currently investigating other similar false declaration cases involving 256 foreigners hired by 93 employers The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) issued a statement yesterday (11 Apr) saying that it has charged 8 employers and 2 employment agents for falsely declaring the salaries of foreign employees to the Controller of Work Passes. The 8 employers are franchisees of local convenience chain store 7-Eleven. Of the 2 employment agents charged, one is a 28-year-old Singaporean director of Ethics Career Solution, and the other is a 32-year-old Indian national working in the same company. The 10 allegedly made false declarations between 11 November 2010 and 11 September 2013 in connection with applications for 41 foreign employees: 35 EP holders 6 S Pass holders One of the criteria for MOM granting an EP or S Pass is that the foreign applicant must meet the minimum salary requirement. Investigations revealed that the 8 employers declared in the application for work passes that they would pay the 41 foreigners salaries ranging from $2,400 to $4,550. However, the employers allegedly intended to pay the foreigners much less than the salaries declared. The employers had thus committed an offence under the Employment of Foreign Manpower Act (EFMA) of furnishing false information to MOM. MOM’s investigations showed that the 2 employment agents of Ethics Career Solution, which facilitated the placement of 21 of the 41 foreign employees, submitted false salary information in the work pass application forms. They are also charged with furnishing false information. Of the 8 employers, 7 have pleaded guilty to the charges. They were fined between $8,000 or in default 4 weeks’ jail, and $56,000 or in default 42 weeks’ jail. The remaining employer has his case adjourned to 8 May 2014. One of the employment agents was fined $22,000 or in default 8 weeks’ jail while the other was fined $40,000 or in default 15 weeks’ jail. In February 2014, MOM took action against the 41 foreign employees involved in the false salary declaration scam. Some of them had their much lower salaries paid in cash, while some returned cash amounts ranging between $600 and $3,350 per month to their employers, after having their stated salary credited into their bank account. All were charged in court in February 2014.

MOM is currently investigating other similar false declaration cases involving 256 foreigners hired by 93 employers. MOM has stepped up on enforcement in this area following the raising of maximum penalties for false declaration under EFMA in November 2012. Offenders will be severely dealt with – if convicted, they can be fined up to $20,000, and/or jailed up to 2 years. Members of the public who know of persons or employers who contravene EFMA should phone MOM at (65) 6438 5122 or email mom_fmmd@mom.gov.sg. All information will be kept strictly confidential.
