  2. https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/4000-sign-petition-over-singapore-medical-council-ruling What do you guys think of this recent case? If doctors are to run through a series of possible side effects and risks, do you really understand? Right now, you simply has to sign a document before any procedure. Do you really read and say, no I better not go through this or you just have no other alternative. Is there a better way to address this and ensure doctors ensure they discharge their duties in the best interest of their patients.
  3. Fowl play: 13 chicken suppliers fined record S$26.9m for price-fixing, non-compete pacts THIRTEEN distributors of fresh chicken have been fined S$26.9 million for price-fixing and agreeing not to compete for customers, the largest total financial penalty in a single case to date, the Competition and Consumer Commission of Singapore (CCCS) said in a media statement on Wednesday. Fresh chicken distributors import live chickens from farms in Malaysia and slaughter them in Singapore, selling the fresh chicken products to customers such as supermarkets and restaurants. The 13 distributors collectively supply more than 90 per cent of fresh chicken products in Singapore, with an annual combined turnover amounting to about half a billion dollars. The 13 suppliers were fined between S$705,939 to S$11.4 million, taking into account relevant turnovers; the nature, duration and seriousness of the infringement; aggravating and mitigating factors, such as cooperation with the CCCS; and representations made. "Particularly for this case, the large size of the industry, the high market shares of the parties, the seriousness and the long duration (of about seven years) of the cartel conduct contributed to CCCS imposing the highest total financial penalty in a single case to date," said the CCCS.

    3 party repairs ?

    Apple fined millions by Australian court for misleading customers over faulty iPhones SYDNEY: Apple was Tuesday fined Aus$9 million (US$6.7 million) by an Australian court for making false claims about consumer rights when refusing to fix faulty iPhones and iPads previously repaired by a third party. Customers of the US tech giant had complained to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) after an operating system update disabled their devices in a global issue known as "error 53". The users were told by Apple that they were not eligible for a remedy if the iPhone or iPad had been repaired by another company. The ACCC took Apple to the Federal Court last year over allegedly false or misleading representations to customers with faulty iPhones and iPads about their rights under the law. "If a product is faulty, customers are legally entitled to a repair or a replacement under the Australian Consumer Law, and sometimes even a refund," ACCC Commissioner Sarah Court said in a statement. "The court declared the mere fact that an iPhone or iPad had been repaired by someone other than Apple did not, and could not, result in the consumer guarantees ceasing to apply, or the consumer's right to a remedy being extinguished." Apple admitted misleading at least 275 Australian customers over the issue between February 2015 to February 2016 on its US website, by its Australian store staff and on its customer service phone calls. The consumer watchdog said Apple had also committed to providing new devices as replacements, after allegations that the company was giving customers refurbished goods instead after a device suffered a major failure. There was no immediate comment from Apple, which has previously described the error as appearing "when a device fails a security test". It has released an operating system update to fix the issue.

  8. I've never understood why anyone will sit on roadside kerbs. It's so dangerous and things like this can happen to you. Are they really so unaware of the potential dangers? ======= Taxi driver fined $4,000 and banned from the road after reversing into student By Elena Chong SINGAPORE - An elderly taxi driver who reversed into a student and pinned her under his car was fined $4,000 and banned from driving for three years on Monday. Thow Ngok Sen, 69, had been performing a u-turn when he changed his mind and reversed, and backed into 22-year-old Ms Abigail Ow Hui Xia who had been sitting on a kerb at a Bishan bus stop with her boyfriend. He mounted the kerb and ran into her as she tried to get out of the way, knocking her over. A passer-by told Thow to move his cab forward to free her but his tyre ran over her thigh. Ms Ow spent two months in hospital for spinal injuries and fractures to her pelvic area and now cannot walk unaided.
  9. A 78-year-old retiree was fined S$3,000 for setting his neighbour's cat on fire. His act caused the cat to foam at the mouth. It also left the cat's face, neck and back badly burnt. Chua Tuang Seng, a father of two, pleaded guilty to the charge and will have to serve a jail term of two months if he cannot pay the fine. He committed the offence along the corridor outside his flat in Pasir Ris Drive on September 3 last year. Chua was sprinkling kerosene around his potted plants to get rid of ants when he noticed the tabby cat hiding among the plants. He believed the cat had defecated frequently outside his flat. He used a broom to chase the cat away but it hid below a metal shelf. Chua then squirted kerosene on it, lit a piece of newspaper and threw it towards the cat. The badly-burnt animal was later found foaming at the mouth by the sister of its owner, Mdm Salman Mohd Aris. The 49-year-old woman made a police report. The cat was sent to Mt Pleasant Veterinary Centre for examination. The cat suffered from swollen eyelids, skin loss at the neck, and singed fur and was hospitalised for four days. Chua, who suffers from throat and colon cancer, pleaded for leniency. District Judge Ng Peng Hong pointed out that Chua's act was "not right". He ordered Chua to pay Mdm Salman S$1,235 as compensation for medical costs incurred as result of his act. For the abuse, he could have been jailed up to a year and fined S$10,000.

  11. An 80-year-old church caretaker who suspected his girlfriend was in a relationship with her landlord threw a kitchen knife at him in a brawl on holy ground. Lim Song Chong hurled the 20cm-long blade at 65-year-old Mr Cheong Yee Mun, who escaped being hit by hiding behind a pillar at the Glad Tidings Church. Mr Lim also threw an umbrella, a pocket knife and kitchen scissors at the retiree, who retaliated by chucking a fire extinguisher at his "very, very frail" rival. None of the projectiles hit their intended target and police arrived to separate the seniors. Lim was fined a total of $3,000 and jailed for a day on Monday after he admitted committing criminal intimidation by chasing Mr Cheong with the knife and performing a rash act by throwing it at him. Another charge of criminal intimidation and two counts of throwing the smaller knife and scissors were taken into consideration.

  12. A monthly average of 28 vehicle owners have been fined since 2010 for headlamp non-compliance. This number includes the unauthorised installation of High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps. Minister for Transport Lui Tuck Yew revealed this in a written reply to Member of Parliament (MP) for Pasir Ris-Punggol GRC Zainal Sapari. Citing records from the Traffic Police, Mr Lui added there have been no accidents caused by drivers dazzled by light from other vehicles since 2005. HID headlamps can improve the visibility of drivers compared with standard halogen lamps. Since January 1, 2010, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) made it compulsory for all newly-registered vehicles with HID headlamps to be equipped with an auto-levelling feature. LTA said the feature helps reduce glare to drivers of oncoming vehicles without compromising the improved visibility the headlamps offer to drivers. Mr Lui said LTA enforcement officers look out for vehicles fitted with very bright headlamps that do not comply with its requirements. Owners of non-complying vehicles face a maximum penalty of S$1,000 fine and three months' jail. For subsequent offenders, they face up to S$2,000 fine and six months' jail.

  14. http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/sin.../.html?cid=FBSG SINGAPORE: The Competition Commission of Singapore has penalised 12 motor vehicle traders for engaging in bid-rigging activities at public auctions, contravening the Competition Act. CCS said the action by the traders not to outbid each other created the false impression that the winning bids were actually the result of a fair and competitive bidding process. This resulted in lower bids for the motor vehicles for the government agencies whose public auctions were affected. The infringements were conducted over a period of three years from January 2008 to March 2011. The traders have been fined some S$180,000. The CCS said investigations started in May 2010. It received information from various agencies, including the Land Transport Authority, the National Environment Agency, Singapore Civil Defence Force, Singapore Customs and the Singapore Police Force. Investigations showed that the traders entered into an agreement to refrain from bidding against each other at public motor vehicles auctions held by the government agencies. A sole bidder, usually Pang's Motor Trading, would bid for the vehicles after which the traders would conduct their own "private" auctions for the vehicles that were earlier won at the public auctions. The difference in the bid price of the vehicles between the public auctions and the "private" auctions would be put into a common pool and shared amongst those present at the "private" auctions. Pang's Motor Trading was fined the most, S$50,733. It was followed by Tim Bock Enterprise, which was fined S$37,795. Most of the other traders -- namely Auto & Carriage Engineering, Gold Sun Motor Vehicle Charter & Rental, Hup Lee Second Hand Auto Parts, Kiat Lee Scrap Vehicles Centre Pte Ltd, Minsheng Agencies, PKS Scrap Vehicle Centre, Seng Guan Auto Parts and Seng Hup Huat Second Hand Auto Parts -- were fined S$8,000. The remaining two traders are Kiat Lee Machinery Pte Ltd and Yong Soon Heng Auto Parts, who were fined S$17,566 and S$8,977 respectively.

Basha Meat Supplier Pte Ltd was investigated by the National Environment Agency (NEA) and the Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority (AVA) following public feedback. The two agencies had tested the DNA of various samples of minced and chopped meat sold by Basha Meat Supplier as mutton. Beef was found in the samples. The supplier was brought to court November 6 where it was fined by the court under the Sale of Food Act. NEA said before the court's decision, it had been monitoring Basha's products, and subsequent samples did not uncover any beef in meat sold as mutton. In a media statement, NEA said on October 9 a similar deterrent sentence was passed to another meat supplier - Nabisha Mutton Supplier. NEA and AVA had tested the DNA of various samples of minced and chopped meat sold by Nabisha Mutton Supplier as mutton. Beef was found in the samples. The court fined Nabisha S$5,000, which is the maximum penalty for the first offence under the Sale of Food Act. NEA said the AVA is reviewing the maximum penalties specified under the Sale of Food Act to serve as a greater deterrent to offenders. This is part of its current review of the Act to look at other measures to enhance food safety. - CNA/fa
  16. Gilat but stewpid... From CNA: http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/sin...1237461/1/.html Cabby fined for drink-driving and swearing at police officer By Kimberly Spykerman | Posted: 15 November 2012 2157 hrs SINGAPORE: A taxi driver was fined S$5,000 and disqualified from driving for a year for drink-driving and hurling vulgarities at a police officer. The court heard Thursday that Chia Whay Kiat, aged 58, also spat in the direction of the police officer. The offences took place in September this year. At around 4am that day, Chia was stopped at a police roadblock along Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3. As he smelt strongly of alcohol, a breathlyser test was conducted on him. His blood alcohol level was found to be 48 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath, which exceeded the prescribed limit of 35 microgrammes. When Chia was informed by the police officer that he would be placed under arrest for drink-driving, he pleaded with the officer to let him go. When the officer refused, Chia used a mixture of Hokkien and English vulgarities on him. It was then that Chia also spat in the officer's direction. For the drink-driving offence, Chia could have been jailed up to six months in addition to the fine. For using vulgarities and spitting in the direction of the police officer, he could have been jailed and fined.
  17. French tourist fined for stealing $32,800 handbag AsiaOne Wednesday, Sep 19, 2012 SINGAPORE - A French tourist has been fined $8,000 for the theft of a luxury handbag from a Marina Bay Sands (MBS) store. Olivia Lemercier Maurice, 42, was on holiday with her family in Singapore when she stole the Ralph Lauren Ricky Alligator 33 branded bag worth $32,800 at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands. She pleaded guilty to the theft of the honey brown-coloured bag last Wednesday. The police had received a report of the theft on July 30. The mother of two was subsequently arrested at Changi Airport after preliminary investigations. According to The Straits Times, the prosecution asked for a jail sentence due to the high value of the item stolen. However, her lawyer Raymond Lye asked for a fine instead as the French national was suffering from kleptomania, an impulsive disorder to steal things, at that time. He said the theft was an impulsive act due to the illness. Mr Lye also added that the 42-year-old homemaker had spent a week in remand. He argued that it would be unjust to give her a jail instead of probation just because she was a foreigner. After the sentencing, Maurice flew back to France with her husband. She could have been given a sentence of up to three years' jail and a fine. wjeanne@sph.com.sg

    SMRT fined $2m

    *BREAKING* SMRT to be fined S$2 million for Dec 2011 train breakdowns along the North South Line. LTA is imposing the maximum penalty on train operator. The breakdowns cost SMRT an additional S$4.4 million. source: CNA FB page another source: The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has fined rail operator SMRT $2 million for two major disruptions last December. The penalty - $1 million each for the Dec 15 and Dec 17 incidents on the North-South Line - is the maximum penalty under the Rapid Transit Systems Act. In a release, the LTA said SMRT had failed to 'exercise due diligence and vigilance expected of a public transport operator, and to maintain its network in good and efficient working condition'. It added that its internal investigations had found that both incidents were preventable. The authority said it will continue to work closely with SMRT to implement the Committee of Inquiry's recommendations. It will also work with the rail operators to put in place a 'more holistic and robust framework' for maintenance issues, so problems can be detected and fixed early. The $2 million fine will be donated to the Public Transport Fund to help needy families with transport fares. http://www.straitstimes.com/The-Big-Story/...ory_822847.html
  20. http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/sin...1214654/1/.html SINGAPORE: A furniture retailer has become the first to be fined for not including the Goods and Services Tax (GST) in the prices of its items on display and in advertisements. Silver River Furniture was fined S$4,000 on Friday on four counts of not complying with GST regulations on price displays. Two other similar charges were taken into consideration. The authorities found two of Silver River Furniture's advertisements in a local English daily in January and February 2012 with small print stating "all prices exclude delivery and GST". Prices of goods in the showrooms also excluded the GST. GST-registered businesses like Silver River Furniture have to show GST-inclusive prices on all displays, advertisements, publications and even written or verbal quotations to the public. The only exception would be businesses in the hotel and food and beverage industries for goods and services that are subject to service charge. The furniture retailer failed to comply with the GST price display requirements, even though it had been warned several times. The maximum penalty is a fine of S$5,000. -CNA/ac

  23. Posted this thread not because of some guy getting fined. Just curious when is it a "seizable offence" and when is it considered a "non-seizable" offence according to the boys in blue or really, the AGC in a typical assault case. I believed there were previously reported cases when the victims were whacked senseless and even hospitalized but some how the aggressors got away with a light fine or not even charged at all. Pub brawls are really very common but we seldom see or hear these drunk blokes getting charged/fined or just that the papers don't report these ka chiam puteh news?

  24. Man fined $4000 for assasult in pub SINGAPORE: A 27-year-old Singaporean man has been fined $4,000 for assaulting another man who had made derogatory remarks about him in a pub. Alexander Lincoln Chew Yew Wah punched Mills Richard Jonathan several times in the face. The incident happened in November 2010 in a pub at Nanson Road off Mohamed Sultan Road. The court heard that 29-year-old Mills had challenged Chew to hit him. The two men scuffled outside the pub's washroom. A security officer later reported the incident to the police. Mills was warded in hospital for two days. As a result of the assault, he sustained a scar on his eyebrow. In his mitigation, Chew's lawyer argued that his client had no intention to cause trouble, but the Briton's "derogatory comments coupled with his persistent taunts" angered him. The lawyer, who called for a fine of $1,000, added that the victim was not entirely blameless in the incident. In sentencing, District Judge Ronald Gwee noted that the overtones in Mills' comments were quite clear and there was "a certain degree of provocation". However, he also agreed with the prosecution that Chew had "over-reacted". The judge added that a fine was appropriate in this case, but it should be sufficient to act as a deterrent. For voluntarily causing hurt, Chew could have been jailed up to two years and fined $5,000. - CNA/de Moral of the story : Singaporeans at losing end....
  25. Illegal parking on double-yellow line still can argue wan meh? And mata also kena called in? From STOMP: http://singaporeseen.stomp.com.sg/stomp/sg...eign_woman.html Posted on 28 May 2012 Foreign woman goes berserk after she's fined for illegal parking STOMPer Supernovi says this foreign woman kicked up a big fuss after being issued a fine for parking illegally along a double yellow line at Bukit Timah. The police eventually had to be called in to resolve the matter. Says the STOMPer: "My friends and I were at Bukit Timah Plaza and we came upon a Chinese National woman getting booked for a parking offence along a double yellow line. "Apparently, she insisted that the enforcement officer allow her a grace period but when she came back, she received a ticket. "Question: Which enforcement officer will allow anyone any grace period for parking along a double yellow line? "Clearly she was in the wrong and she created such a big fuss that her own kid was crying. Afterwards, when the traffic enforcement officers were about to leave the scene on their bike, the kid allegedly blocked their way and caused them to nearly fall. "The officers had no choice but to disembark and call the police. "The police came later and she kept on complaining that she was still right and we were like 50 metres away and we still could hear the commotion. "After a good 20 minutes, they all left the scene. "The woman should have known better, why create such a big fuss when you are in the wrong in the first place? Please adhere to the laws of Singapore, even though it may be just a parking summon. "Irony of the story, one of the enforcement officers is also a Chinese National."
