  3. Man Tries To Import 456kg Of Undeclared Coriander At Pasir Panjang Wholesale Centre, Slapped With $3k Fine source: https://mustsharenews.com/coriander-imported-fine/ SFA Says Coriander Must Be Declared, Is A High-Risk Vegetable For Having Pesticide Residue Coriander is a staple in many Asian cuisines, but its strong taste remains highly contentious. Just like Australia’s Vegemite — people either hate it or love it. Although many people can’t stand the taste of this strong herb, there is still a huge demand for it. On Wednesday (26 Feb), a vegetable supplier was fined for importing 456kg of this herb without a proper permit, reported Channel NewsAsia (CNA). Officers found undeclared 456kg of coriander CNA reports that Goh Chee Wee, a partner at a wholesaler, brought in a consignment of fresh fruits and vegetables from Thailand on 7 Oct 2019. Singapore Food Agency (SFA) officers inspected the truck at Pasir Panjang Wholesale Centre. During inspection, they found 456kg of coriander which Goh did not declare under his import permit. Tests carried out as they may have high amount of pesticide SFA later carried tests out on the coriander and found that there were excessive amounts of pesticide residue on the coriander. This would have posed a food safety risk to consumers, said the prosecutor from SFA. In addition, he explained that imported coriander go through stringent tests due to potential for high amounts of pesticide residue. This is the main reason why food importers must declare coriander imports. Authorities found the coriander unsuitable for consumption and destroyed the pile 4 days later, which may or may not have resulted in cheers heard across the globe. Importer fined $3,000 Goh pleaded guilty to a charge of bringing in fresh vegetables for sale without abiding by permit descriptions. Since he was experienced in importing vegetables into Singapore, he “should have known” that permits are needed for each consignment of vegetables, SFA said. He was therefore given a fine of $3,000. However, he could have been fined up to $10,000, jailed for up to 3 years or both. Are you pro or anti-coriander? Some of you probably jumped for joy at the news, while others may be dismayed. Are you the person who tells the fish soup auntie to pile on the xiang cai (fragrant vegetable)? Or are you one of those spending precious time painstakingly removing every leaf from your dish? Let us know in the comments.
  4. Animal abuse: Yishun resident fined S$10,000 for swinging pet poodle on leash, kicking it Read more at https://www.todayonline.com/singapore/animal-abuse-yishun-resident-fined-s10000-swinging-pet-poodle-leash-kicking-it SINGAPORE — A man walking his pet dog was filmed abusing it repeatedly on two occasions last year, such as by kicking the animal, lifting it off the ground by its leash and pinning it down with his hands. Chen Xin, a 38-year-old Singaporean, was on Wednesday (Jan 15) fined S$10,000 and banned from keeping any pets for a year. Videos of his abuse of the toy poodle, which is a breed of dog, were taken by an onlooker and they went viral on social media. He pleaded guilty to two charges of wantonly causing unnecessary pain to the female dog in the garden area of his Yishun Ring Road block of flats. A resident there witnessed both incidents and filmed them on his mobile phone, eventually reporting them to the then-Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore. The National Parks Board (NParks) took over AVA’s responsibilities for animals in April last year. The court heard that on Feb 15 last year, Chen was walking the dog when he suddenly pulled its leash hard several times, “causing it to move backwards about a metre each time”. He then pulled its leash “suddenly and violently, causing it to move backwards about two metres”. On March 9 last year, he was walking the poodle again when he: Kicked its chest Lifted it by its leash off the seating area and onto the ground from a height of about 50cm Swung it by its leash from the ground up to the seating area Grabbed it by its neck and pinned it down against the seating area for about three second The dog has since been given a new home and did not suffer any permanent injuries, an NParks prosecutor told the court. In mitigation, Chen — who did not have a lawyer — told the court through an interpreter that he was deeply remorseful and sought to explain his actions. “Initially, my poodle was rushing and I tried to pull it back to walk with me, so there was a bit of a struggle,” he said regarding the first incident. As for the second incident, he said that the dog had been sitting behind him, so he wanted to move it when he stood up. “At the time, I pulled on the dog trying to lift it off… I pinned it down by using light force and the time period was very short,” he added. In response, the NParks prosecutor said that Chen was busy using his mobile phone and did not seem to be paying much attention to the dog, and the force he used “seems to be unreasonable”. After District Judge Ong Luan Tze fined him, Chen asked if prospective new pet owners could receive “pre-training” before they owned pets. “The reason why I committed the mistake is because I do not know the boundaries, but it’s my first time owning a pet. I do not know how to train a dog,” he told the judge. The NParks prosecutor replied that he could have consulted animal welfare groups or approached NParks. Chen could have been fined up to S$15,000, jailed up to 18 months, or both, on each charge.

  5. Not Wearing Your Seatbelt While Sitting In The Backseat May Get You A S$100 Fine In M’sia source: https://mustsharenews.com/malaysia-seatbelt-fine/ Malaysia Government Introduces S$100 Fine For Rear Passengers Who Do Not Wear Seatbelts Everyone knows that it’s important to buckle up when you’re in a car. However, most of us will only do so when we’re sitting at the front seat. If you’re planning a road trip soon to Malaysia, remember to put on your seatbelts even when you’re in the backseat. Failing to do so might get you a S$100 fine. S$100 fine for those who don’t wear seatbelts at the back As the new year begins, Malaysia is making child seats and rear seatbelts mandatory. Needless to say, the same goes for putting on the seatbelts. Those who fail to comply with the law face an S$100 (RM 300) fine. The new law only applies to passengers aged 17 and above. Action will be taken against rear passengers who have access to seatbelts but choose not to buckle up. Law originally introduced in 2009 Putting on seatbelts when sitting in the rear was made mandatory in 2009. However, many took it lightly, which hindered the enforcement of the law. The government then gave a grace period of 3 years, according to Beetify. Wear seatbelts for your own safety Buckling up when you’re sitting at the back might seem like an unnecessary interruption to your comfort. Yet, it’s better to be safe than sorry. No one wants to be injured, especially when you’re on a holiday. Wherever you are, it’s best to buckle up and drive safely.

    Infosys in the news

    https://www.businesstimes.com.sg/technology/infosys-investigates-alleged-unethical-practices-by-top-officials INFOSYS Ltd said it was investigating whistleblower claims accusing its top two executives of "unethical practices" to boost short-term profit, sending its shares to their worst intraday fall in over six years. The allegations were part of a letter dated Sept 20, seen by Reuters, which said chief executive officer Salil Parekh and chief financial officer Nilanjan Roy engaged in forced revenue recognition from large contracts and did not adhere to accounting standards. Chairman Nandan Nilekani said in a statement on Tuesday that India's No2 software services exporter placed the complaints before the audit committee on Oct 10, and before the non-executive members of the board on Oct 11. **** Looks like financial irregularities will result in a slap on the wrist and a small fine. No one ever goes to jail for this if agree to settle most times. Bengaluru: Former Cognizant COO Sridhar Thiruvengadam has agreed to pay a civil penalty of $50,000 following a Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) order, which found that four company executives, including the former, authorised a bribe payment in a video-conference, which violated the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. The case relates to Cognizant’s 2.7-million-sqft KITS campus on Old Mahabalipuram Road in Chennai that planned to employ 17,500 people. A senior government official of Tamil Nadu demanded a $2-million bribe from the construction firm responsible for the campus. The bribery exposed Cognizant to civil and criminal liability with the company paying $25 million in penalties as well as incurring $79 million more in costs related to its internal investigation. The SEC order said Thiruvengadam devised a scheme to cover it up in the company’s books. Thiruvengadam was Cognizant’s COO from late 2013 until he was placed on administrative leave in late 2016. Cognizant accepted Thiruvengadam’s resignation last year. The SEC order states that Thiruvengadam later helped to conceal the payment by signing false sub-certifications. It found that Thiruvengadam violated the FCPA’s internal accounting controls and record-keeping provisions. “Without admitting or denying the findings, Thiruvengadam agreed to pay a civil penalty of $50,000,” the order said. A lawsuit filed by a group of investors on July 27 had put the spotlight on two of its former top executives — former president Gordon Coburn and former chief legal officer Steven E Schwartz. Coburn and Schwartz channelled payments to L&T, the construction company responsible for the KITS campus. The lawsuit alleged that to disguise Cognizant’s repayment to L&T of the bribes the latter paid to government officials, Schwartz and Coburn agreed that L&T would submit many fraudulent change order requests at the end of the project totalling $2 million. TOI has seen a copy of the order that said Cognizant engaged the contracting firm to build the facility and obtain all necessary government permits.
  7. Singaporean driver pays RM28,000 in traffic fines in Johor Bahru JOHOR BAHRU: A Singaporean man paid outstanding fines of RM28,000 (S$9,200) in Johor Bahru on Sunday (Sep 29) after he was detained by the police. The man, who is in his 60s, has had 116 traffic summonses issued against him since 2000, said Bukit Aman traffic investigation and enforcement department deputy director Mohd Nadzri Hussain. A total of 3,174 fines were settled during the three-day operation, with Singaporeans making up 2,687 of the figure. “As of this morning, we managed to collect about RM611,000 in traffic fines and summonses at both locations," said Mohd Nadzri, adding that the amount collected is expected to reach RM75,000 by midnight. JOHOR BAHRU: A Singaporean man paid outstanding fines of RM28,000 (S$9,200) in Johor Bahru on Sunday (Sep 29) after he was detained by the police. The man, who is in his 60s, has had 116 traffic summonses issued against him since 2000, said Bukit Aman traffic investigation and enforcement department deputy director Mohd Nadzri Hussain. The 10th series of the operation which involved 116 personnel was conducted at the Gelang Patah R&R, Iskandar Puteri and at Muzium Tokoh, Jalan Lingkaran Dalam. There have been 247,278 outstanding traffic summonses recorded since 2000, said Mohd Nadzri. He reminded traffic offenders to check the status of their summonses and make payments at two kiosks at the traffic division office of the Johor Bahru selatan district police headquarters. For Singaporean drivers, payment can also be made at AXS machines. “Payments can also be made at the COPS traffic counter at all district police headquarters and summons checking can also be done through MyEg portal at www.myeg.com.my and rilek.com.my,” he said. Mohd Nazri said once the Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP) comes into force, traffic offenders from Singapore must first settle all their summonses before being allowed to return.

  8. I did not know HDB parking rules are so strict https://www.hdb.gov.sg/cs/infoweb/car-parks/parking-offences/parking-rules-and-penalties: Repairing/ allowing repairs to a motor vehicle in a parking place. ($80 fine) No one is allowed to jump start a car and change to a new car battery. Using a motor vehicle within a parking place for sale or promoting the sale of goods of any kind. ($80 fine) Property agents or taxis with advertisement stickers should beware. Cause/ allow vehicle to be washed in a parking place. ($80) Anyone who engages foreign workers to wash their car at night will have to stop doing that. But I still have not figured out why vans and lorries are allowed to park at loading/unloading bay as long as they want while seasoned parking car owners cannot

  13. Not sure if anyone can share experience. Me got a $100 angpow for parking beside (not at) loading/unloading bay becoz the bay was taken up. On the hazard light, rush up to 11th floor, pick up some heavy baby stuff from my sis, rushed down, and surprise to see white ang pow there. I thought it will be safe becoz i took less than 5 minutes in all and i wasn't blocking at all but road was yellow-lined. Appealed online, they didn't consider the merits of the case just email back to say they have waived twice previously (years back) and that's it. Furthermore, those two times they waived were for tickets at my own season parking area. I just felt they should have considered the genuineness of the circumstances instead of framing their reason over historical records. Anyone knows if it will help to call them directly? Either way, i'm quite resigned with those people in gaberman already.
  14. Singaporeans going to Bangkok, take note. According to one Singaporean who travelled to the wildly-popular Thai city recently in May 2018, a new kind of scam is allegedly going on at the airport there. This is copied from the Facebook User’s post: I don’t usually write such long posts on Facebook but the terrible experience at Suvarnabhumi Airport during my recent trip over the weekend has prompted me to do so. What I want to achieve is to raise awareness and to prevent more people from being caught in the same situation. I was travelling with 13 other Singaporeans and we landed in Bangkok around 9.40am on 18th May. Everything seemed fine, as per my previous trips to Bangkok – we went through customs, collected our luggage from the baggage claim area, and then proceeded to walk through ‘nothing to declare’. When we were about to exit the airport to head over to our AOT transport (to be clear, we were already out of transit area, about to exit the airport, so that’s where the public is free to walk around), we got stopped by Thai officers, and they asked me “how many of you?” and I replied “14”. I saw the change in expression followed by “oh, can you follow me to office?” With nothing to hide, we followed them to the Excise Department office. They told us they were going to search our luggage. Again, with nothing to hide, we agreed. Some of us came out relatively quickly but we soon realised 2-3 of us were asked to stay in the office with their passports confiscated. Background info: 14 of us walked out together in a group, carrying 6 bottles of Balvenie 16 which we got from Changi Airport Duty Free. Each bottle was packed individually in sealed bags to be carried on board the plane, and each bottle came with an individual receipt. However, 3 of such sealed bags were placed in 1 plastic bag, which meant 2 of us were carrying the 2 plastic bags (containing 3 sealed bags each). So, we are all aware that the alcohol allowance for hard liquor to be brought into Bangkok is 1L per pax. Were we well within our alcohol limit/allowance? You would think so, but NO. They told us we could be charged with tax evasion because only 2 people were carrying the alcohol (even though all of us said we were travelling as a group of 14), and that we LITERALLY were allowed to only CARRY 1 per person. They wanted to fine us up to THB 75,000 (~SGD3,160) BUT we were told they will lower the fine to THB49,000 (~SGD2,065) IF we paid IMMEDIATELY. Note: CASH ONLY, no cards allowed – they told us to get cash from our credit cards OR change our SGD and told us where the ATMs and money changers were. They even threatened to take all of us to the police station if we do not agree to pay the fine. Allow me to emphasize one more time – 14 of us bought 6 bottles of hard liquor. We managed to get them to lower the fine to THB 33,000 (~SGD1,390), not that I’m complaining we got a lower fine but isn’t it weird they could adjust the fine amount? We eventually paid the fine because we were in a foreign country afterall and it was extremely difficult to reason with them when they were threatening ‘jail’ in no time. They were definitely rushing us to pay up. Despite paying the fine, they only returned 2 bottles (out of 6) to us. We also realise that one of the officers was ‘stationed’ at the baggage claim area while we were there and was probably eyeing us the entire time but waited till we have gone through customs before stopping us. To highlight, the officer eyeing us at the baggage claim area eventually ended up at the airport exit, SUSPICIOUS MUCH??? That officer’s area of duty comprise of both INSIDE and OUTSIDE, and they could switch their duties as and when? While we were stuck there (the longest 90mins ever…), we saw a number of people being escorted to the Excise Department office too, comprising of a group of 10 (bringing in 8 bottles which is still within the allowance!!!), a couple (well, apparently it is not okay for the guy to carry the bottle on behalf of his girlfriend/wife), and another smaller group before us. Think about the amount of THB collected over that 90mins. By the way, there was a man from the Taiwan embassy who came up to me 20mins into this incident, asking me if I was Taiwanese. Apparently he snapped a few photos of us standing OUTSIDE the Excise Department office and perhaps he was going to help us if we were Taiwanese. However, he got called out by the Thai officers and they demanded him to delete the photos he took in a PUBLIC SPACE. They even took down his details and demanded to take a photo of his pass. After the episode, we found out from some of our (Thai/Singaporean) friends that they do this to both locals and tourists, that the officers in the airport will go out of the way to find reasons (even the 200 cig allowance) to justify the fines they impose on you. In my opinion, it was absolutely unfair. To my surprise, nothing came up when I tried searching on google for people with similar experiences, which means many people out there could still be unaware since we can’t be the first.

  18. For those who frequent this area to have mookata or shop at Sheng Siong nearby, please avoid parking by the road side (White zig zac or double yellow). Saw LTA officer there many times. Just earlier on, I stopped my car by the side to stretch my legs. I merely paced up and down the stretch of road (10min at most) and when I returned to my vehicle, the bike was parked right before my car. Gone case I thought. The officer was at a distance away. I didn't bother checking with him since he would have issued the summon long ago. It didn't cross my mind that there was no summon ticket! It was only after returning home then I realised that there wasn't any physical ticket. Upon checking my dashcam, I saw the officer looking around in front of my car. Not sure if he was being nice to give me a grace period. My vehicle definitely felt hot to the touch given the long drive prior to stopping. Lesson learnt- let your legs break or find a proper parking lot
  19. Anyone use the AXS machine to pay for your Malaysia fine before? I just discover few days ago that I got a fine for speeding back in 2001 and they only just update it on their website. I don't want to drive in and pay as I don't know how long more again they need to update their record and I don't want to "chong" with them. So i prefer to pay thru the AXS machine is possible....
