  1. 5 weeks' jail, 3-year driving ban for 2 men involved in illegal race in Lim Chu Kang Source: https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/courts-crime/illegal-race-in-lim-chu-kang-lands-two-men-5-weeks-jail-and-a-ban-from Goh Tze Ming (left) and Khairulanwar Ismail were given five weeks' jail and a $1,500 fine each for racing illegally.ST PHOTOS: WONG KWAI CHOW SINGAPORE - They sped down Lim Chu Kang Road in similar cars and clocked almost equal breakneck speeds in their illegal race. On Tuesday (Sept 10), Goh Tze Ming, 37, and Khairulanwar Ismail, 26, were given the same sentence - five weeks' jail and a $1,500 fine each. They will also be disqualified from driving all classes of vehicles for three years after their release. The men, who were both driving a Volkswagen GTI, had denied that they were involved in the illegal race, which took place on Dec 9, 2016. The pair also similarly claimed trial against the charge of illegal racing, an offence under the Road Traffic Act. During the hearing, Goh said that he had been rushing to go to the toilet, while Khairulanwar claimed that he was speeding because he wanted to check his engine check-light. Deputy Public Prosecutor Senthilkumaran Sabapathy rubbished the claims, calling them "illogical, unsubstantiated and unbelievable". He added: "It is simply implausible and fanciful that (they) happened to be speeding, at almost twice the speed limit and right next to each other, at a place where a race was ongoing at the material time." The court heard that the two men were arrested by Traffic Police (TP) officers during a sting operation led by Inspector Pardeep Dass, who had received intelligence that there was going to be an illegal race in the area. Together with two other TP officers, Insp Pardeep arrived at the scene in an unmarked car. The officers saw people standing around 40 vehicles parked along Lim Chu Kang Road towards Neo Tiew Road. At 1.07am, the cars driven by Goh and Khairulanwar were seen making a U-turn towards Jalan Bahar before coming to a stop side by side for about 10 seconds. Insp Pardeep then saw both cars speeding off at the same time. The TP officers were activated to pursue them. Goh was caught driving at 132kmh, while Khairulanwar had clocked 136kmh - nearly twice the speed limit of 70kmh. Both men will also start their sentences on the same date - Sept 19.
  2. Adjunct teacher who attacked son's 10-year-old bully jailed 7 weeks SINGAPORE — A man who attacked a 10-year-old boy for bullying his son was jailed seven weeks on Monday (29 April). Adjunct teacher Tan Chin Tai pleaded guilty at the State Courts to one count of voluntarily causing hurt. The 43-year-old, who also works at a tuition centre, had confronted the boy at his son’s school and shoved him against a wall, leaving the child with a small fracture on one of his ribs. Tan’s lawyer, Cory Wong, said that the boy had been bullying his client's son since early 2017 by using vulgarities and taunting him. The boy also threatened to hit other children who spoke to the client's son. ‘I can bully you’ Tan Chin Tai committed the offence while picking his son up from school at around 1.15pm on 7 July 2017. When he spotted the victim heading towards the school’s gate with a student care staff member, he approached the boy. Tan then grabbed the boy’s schoolbag and pushed the him towards a nearby rubbish shed. He then shoved the boy against a wall and scolded him. “Just because you are bigger in size, you can bully others,” Tan told the boy. “Since you can bully my son, I can bully you.” Following the incident, the boy experienced pain in his left chest and visited the hospital. He was found to have sustained a small fracture on one of his left ribs. He was discharged on the same day and given painkillers. Tan has since paid $229.50 in compensation to the boy. Bullying escalated after incident According to Wong, the bullying got to a point where the father considered switching his son to a different school. The accused had earlier reported the bullying to the school but this did not stop the bullying. “(The father) was instead told that the victim had anger management issues, and felt that his concerns were being brushed aside. “True enough, the school remained ineffective in doing anything to stop the bullying,” said Wong who is from Invictus Law. The victim’s bullying also escalated after the incident, with him calling the accused a “murderer” to his son’s face, the lawyer said, adding that the son had been ostracised by his schoolmates. The boy had also told the accused’s son, “Your father confirm go to jail (sic). My mother is going to sue until you bankrupt (sic).” Wong pointed out that the accused’s actions were not premeditated. Tan had simply wanted to “engage constructively and verbally with the victim”, however the victim had “very cockily ignored” him. “In the heat of the moment, and being a loving father who would staunchly protect his son’s interests, the above drove (Tan) to act out of character,” said the lawyer. In mitigation, Wong asked for fine of not more than $5,000 for his client. For voluntarily causing hurt, Tan could have been jailed up to two years and faced a possible fine of up to $5,000.

    Jailed for road rage

    A taxi driver was jailed for two weeks on Thursday for assaulting a motorcyclist in a road rage case. Poh Teik Eng, 43, pleaded guilty to using both his clenched fists to punch Mr Yen Chee Jiang, 28, on his chest area at the junction of Havelock Road and New Market Road on Feb 10 last year. A court heard that Mr Yen was travelling behind Poh along Havelock Road on a right-turn only lane when Poh tried to change to the lane on his left. He abruptly jammed his brakes to try and filter to that lane but could not due to the heavy traffic. Shortly, Poh again jammed his brakes and tried to change to the lane on his left. Mr Yen sounded his horn at him and shouted "Oi'' as he passed the taxi. Source: http://www.straitstimes.com/breaking-news/...d-rage-20130711
  5. ... What can I say....? Maid, 28, jailed 10 months for having sex with employer's 14-year-old son Elena Chong Court Correspondent SINGAPORE - A domestic worker has been jailed for 10 months for having sex with a minor half her age. The 28-year-old Indonesian woman admitted on Monday to having sex with her employer's 14-year-old son in a house on Sept 5. Neither party can be named due to a gag order. A district court heard that the accused came to Singapore in late June this year and started work for the boy's family on July 3. At about 7pm on Sept 5, the boy was at home with the woman and another foreign domestic helper. His parents and his uncle had gone out. The boy was showing card tricks to the woman when she tried to hug him but he moved her hand away. Later, he went up to his room to put away the cards. About a minute later, the woman came into his room . As he was sitting on a chair in front of the computer table, she came from behind and started kissing his cheeks and neck. He stood up and tried to walk to the door. Before he could leave, she hugged him and began to remove her shorts and panties. Shocked by what was happening, he did not resist. She then removed his clothes, took him to his bed and had sex with him. When she heard the boy's uncle had come home, she stopped. He later told his father what had happened. Urging the court to impose at least 10 months' jail, Deputy Public Prosecutor Nicholas Lai cited aggravating factors such as breach of trust; unprotected nature of the intercourse; and said the woman was tested positive for Chlamydia trachomatis, a sexually transmitted disease. He said it was reprehensible, regardless of whether the boy was eventually infected or not. It could have been sheer luck that he was not infected, but the fact remained that she put the boy at risk. The woman, whose sentence was backdated to Sept 7, could have been jailed for up to 10 years and fined for having sex with a person under 16 years old.
  6. http://www.straitstimes.com/BreakingNews/S...ory_559812.html Sunshine Empire pair jailed By Carolyn Quek THE flamboyant founder of Sunshine Empire, who amassed $180 million in 15 months, and his former director were jailed by a court on Friday for running a fraudulent scheme and for faking accounts. James Phang Wah, 50, and former director Jackie Hoo Choon Cheat, 30, had enriched themselves by at least $8 million through Sunshine's multi-level marketing scheme. Phang was sentenced to nine years jail and fined $60,000 while Hoo was jailed for seven years. Phang's wife Neo Kuon Huay, 47, who was found guilty of falsifying payment vouchers together with Phang, was fined $60,000. They did this so that she could receive commissions amounting to nearly $1 million. Some 20,000 people bought into the flashy scheme, which promised high returns on its lifestyle packages. Sunshine sold these packages at its plush Toa Payoh Central office for over 15 months, before it was raided by officers from the Commercial Affairs Department (CAD) in November 2007. The packages ranged from $240 to $12,000 and offered attractive bonuses and incentives. What was unique was its customer rebate points (CRP) system, which allowed participants to use the points to buy goods online. Phang and Hoo had assured participants that CRP was derived from the firm's turnover on its e-commerce platform. Like other Ponzi-like schemes, rewards for participants came from fresh money secured from those joining later.
  7. i think this is the most sickening news i've heard in singapore.... 7 years is a fair sentence.
  8. They are really really dumb. http://www.todayonline.com/singapore/two-men-jailed-roles-counterfeit-money-scheme SINGAPORE — Two men were today (Feb 3) jailed three years each by the district court for their roles in a counterfeit money scheme. They are the final two to be sentenced, following four others who have already been dealt with. Odd-job workers Adi Soffian Bakhtiar Effendi and Fauzi Mohammad — both 22 years old — admitted to being accomplices in the scheme to forge and use 24 fake S$1,000 notes. The scheme was hatched by Abdul Adziz Asmon, then an operations assistant with marine service agency Nautical Trade, who was eventually jailed six years and seven months in October last year. The court heard that in 2012, the six involved in the scheme tried to create the fake notes using a scanner, transparencies, paper and eggs. The egg white was spread onto the counterfeit notes to give them a crisp texture, mimicking that of real Singapore currency. The tasks were divided among the six involved. As for the pair sentenced today, Adi scanned the genuine currency notes and printed the counterfeit ones, while Fauzi used a paper cutter to cut the fake notes to the correct size. The notes were forged at a chalet in Costa Sands Resort at Jalan Loyang Besar. The crime was discovered when Abdul Aziz used the fakes when handing S$30,000 to a supplier, who eventually called Nautical Trade to complain. The pair could have been jailed up to 20 years and fined for the offences. CHANNEL NEWSASIA
  9. Surprise no one post this news. Does that means, time to up other people wife and get compensated? Pity the guy....go jail and may even lost his job at SAF Cha bor not bad looking ======================================== http://http://www.tnp.sg/news/singapore-news/jailed-beating-man-bed-nearly-naked-wife JAILED FOR BEATING UP MAN IN BED WITH 'NEARLY NAKED' WIFE HUSBAND JAILED FIVE WEEKS FOR PUNCHING MAN HE FOUND ON BED WITH WIFE Jul 27, 2016 6:00am BY TAN TAM MEI Any man who sees his wife nearly naked on their marital bed with another man would react to a certain degree. This was the mitigation that army regular Shawnald Lee Hong Heng's lawyer put forth in court yesterday. In July last year, Lee, 25, returned home to find a man on his bed, next to his wife, who was lying shirtless in bed. He then punched the man in the face several times because he thought the man was trying to take advantage of her. Lee was sentenced yesterday in court to five weeks' jail after pleading guilty to voluntarily causing hurt to Mr Donovan Quek Hon Yong, 25. The incident happened on July 10 at 1.30am at Lee's flat in Yishun. Investigations revealed that around 1am, Lee's wife, Ms Tricia Wong Kai Yan, 23, had been out drinking with friends at a pub. She was drunk and her friend, Mr Quek, took her home in a taxi. Lee arrived home at around 1.30am. WAIT His friend, Mr Tan Jing Sheng, 25, waited for him at the void deck of the block while Lee went upstairs. They had planned to go drinking if Ms Wong was asleep. The court heard that when Lee entered his bedroom, he saw Mr Quek sitting on their bed, next to his "nearly naked wife" who was lying down and looking drowsy. He presumed that Mr Quek was trying to take advantage of his wife and punched him several times. Mr Quek did not retaliate. Lee stopped only when his wife intervened. It was not stated in court if Lee knew Mr Quek. Lee then went downstairs and returned to the flat with his friend to get an explanation from his wife. When Lee saw that Mr Quek was still in his home, he tried to hit him again but Mr Tan restrained him. Lee's wife then explained that it was a misunderstanding. Shortly after, Mr Quek made a police report and was taken in an ambulance to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital, where he was treated for his injuries. In Lee's mitigation, his lawyer, Mr T. M. Sinnadurai, called for a probationary sentence. He said this was Lee's first brush with the law, and he had a two-year-old daughter and an elderly mother to care for. Lee's wife has been in a drug rehabilitation centre since February this year for consuming drugs. Mr Sinnadurai said: "When any man sees his wife on the bed with a man, to a certain degree, he will react... the emotional disturbance of seeing his wife almost naked on the bed, he just lost it." However, District Judge Lee Poh Choo said Lee went overboard. Deputy Public Prosecutor Jason Chua said the prosecution could not confirm what Ms Wong was wearing that day. He said Lee told his lawyer that he had seen his wife shirtless and in her panties when he walked into the bedroom. But in the statement Lee gave the police, he only said his wife was shirtless, and her legs were covered by a blanket, said the DPP. Mr Chua also acknowledged that while the incident was a "unique situation", probation was inappropriate. He asked for a sentence of six to 10 weeks' jail. For his offence, Lee could have been jailed for up to two years and fined $5,000. JUDGE: LEE WENT OVERBOARD District Judge Lee Poh Choo said that while she understood why Shawnald Lee Hong Heng had reacted emotionally to the scene before him, Lee had gone overboard when he severely injured the victim, whom he found sitting on his marital bed with his near-naked wife. Judge Lee said: "Does that warrant punching the victim several times? Even after his wife intervened, he continued trying to hurt the victim." Medical reports said Mr Donovan Quek Hon Yong suffered injuries including a black eye, fractures in the eye socket area and loose and chipped teeth. He was given four days of medical leave and underwent surgery to repair the fractures later that month. Earlier this year, Mr Quek also had dental implants to replace some teeth. Judge Lee also took issue with what she perceived to be Lee's lack of remorse due to the absence of an apology or compensation to the victim. In response, Lee's lawyer, Mr T. M. Sinnadurai, said his client had expressed regret for his actions in the mitigation and also understood the seriousness of the injury he inflicted. But the judge said: "Words are easy to say. Has he offered compensation, especially since the victim incurred medical expenses?" Mr Sinnadurai then revealed that Lee had earlier offered $4,000 as compensation for the victim's medical expenses. But DPP Chua said that while Lee had been willing to make compensation to Mr Quek, no amount was stated, and there was no follow-up after. The judge then chided Mr Sinnadurai for not knowing whether or not the compensation had been accepted.

  12. what an f--ker CB kia face: A car salesman, who was jailed for a week for knocking down and killing a five-year-old girl in 2009, had helped to stage another accident a year earlier. Tijan Syafiq Selamat had loaned his car for the fake mishap among three vehicles so as to file false insurance claims. Earlier this month, he pleaded guilty to conspiring to cheat NTUC Income Insurance by instructing lawyers to submit the false claims. He is currently serving the sentence of 14 months in jail but is appealing for it to be reduced. In the judgement released on Monday, District Judge Chay Yuen Fatt noted that such offences are difficult to detect. He said Tijan Syafiq and his accomplices would have got away if not for their greed to submit too many claims over the same collision. Investigations revealed that in early August 2008, Muhammed Akmal Ahmad, 22, proposed the scheme to Tijan Syafiq. At 10pm on Aug 15, 2008, the car salesman met up with two other unknown men at Tampines Industrial Avenue 2. There, the duo used their cars to stage a chain collision. i still remember was it this fella go online and kpkb about his accident? hope he gets assraped

  14. https://sg.news.yahoo.com/ex-straits-times-journalist-jailed-1-5-years-for-sex-with-minor-095711497.html Former Straits Times journalist Eisen Teo was on Monday sentenced to one and a half years in jail for two charges of having sex and oral sex with an underage girl. In one charge, the 29-year-old former Singapore Press Holdings scholar, who is married, had oral sex with the girl, who was then 15 years old, in a male toilet cubicle at Fort Canning Park. This took place in the early months of 2012, according to court documents. In another, he had sex with her in a study room in his flat at Serangoon Avenue 1 in June 2012 while his wife was baking in the kitchen. A third charge of him having oral sex with her between November and December 2011, in a house off Upper Paya Lebar Road, was taken into consideration for his sentencing. Teo joined the newspaper in 2009, and worked with the Schools team, which produced two weekly magazines for primary and secondary school students. He was a mentor for student journalists at the IN Crowd media club, which the girl, now 17, was a part of when he first met her in 2011. According to the Statement of Facts, presented in court by Deputy Public Prosecutor Amanda Chong, Teo first took special interest in the girl when he learned from reading her blog that she was clinically depressed, suffering from insomnia and was being bullied in school. After maintaining close contact with her through email, WhatsApp and Facebook messages, they became a couple in the last quarter of that year. She was 14 at the time. Teo did not tell the girl he was married until early 2012, though, and would only say that he had a girlfriend, adding that they were not in a committed relationship. He and his wife tied the knot in October 2010. When he finally admitted that he was married, Teo lied once again, telling the girl that he and his wife had an open relationship that allowed them both to have other sexual partners, and that they had gotten married in order to purchase an HDB flat. Teos offences came to light when the girl attempted suicide in a toilet cubicle two days after they had sex in his flat. She was found in a toilet cubicle with her arms slashed and she had overdosed on Panadol. It was when she was recuperating in hospital that her older sister and father discovered that Teo and her had exchanged messages with sexual content on Facebook and WhatsApp. The girls father then attempted to contact Teo without success, and sent a lawyers letter to him to warn him against contacting her. A few months later, the girl confided in her sister about having sex with Teo, and she filed a police report in December that year. Teo will begin his sentence on 24 June. He could have been jailed up to 10 years for each for the underage sex charges.
  15. A 30-year-old man was sentenced to a year in jail on Monday for snatch theft, despite his attempt to evade arrest by hiding in an uncovered manhole that he had accidentally fallen into. Muhammad Ibrahim Abdul Kafoo, 30, had pleaded guilty to snatching the handbag of lawyer Lesley Fu in April outside Chijmes near City Hall. On April 29, he walked towards Ms Fu and ran off after grabbing her red handbag. She went after the thief with two police officers, but they lost sight of him near some road works being carried out near Saint Andrew's Cathedral. It turned out that the man had fallen through an uncovered manhole at the worksite, and decided it was a good place to lay low till his pursuers gave up. He stayed hidden for about 15 minutes, emerged completely soaked, and took a taxi back home.

  16. Man Jailed for beating up a chef who tried to trick his Girlfriend into giving him free sex. A sales supervisor who beat up a chef for trying to trick his girlfriend into giving him free sex was jailed for a year and ordered to be caned three times on Tuesday. Melvin Koh Ting Ying, 30, stripped Mr Liaw Jin Yin from the waist down after finding him in a hotel room with 20-year-old student and social escort Claudia Tay Hsin Ye, who had stripped to her bra. He then whipped him with a belt, hit him with a torch and burned his thigh with a lighter and heated silver pendant. According to a report in The Straits Times, Mr Liaw, 33, was left semi-conscious and with injuries including a broken rib. At an earlier hearing, Koh admitted that he and his girlfriend had kicked and punched Mr Liaw. He also admitted stealing his two mobile phones worth a total of $1,200 and trying to bribe the hotel's security supervisor not to reveal his identity to authorities. source: http://therealsingapore.com/content/man-jailed-beating-chef-who-tried-trick-his-girlfriend-giving-him-free-sex
  17. Two former Certis Cisco officers who were tasked with the job of replenishing money at ATMs in Singapore ended up misappropriating nearly $147,000 instead. For that, 21-year-old Palwinder Singh A/L Harjan Singh will now spend 30 months in jail while 27-year-old Theywa Subramaniam will serve a 36-month jail term. The court heard that Theywa, deemed to be more culpable, was also convicted of one count of moving the criminal proceeds to Malaysia and another count of moving more than $30,000 cash out of Singapore. The court was told that the offences were committed in mid-September last year when the two officers made their rounds with another colleague, who was not involved. The two men had discussed their plan over tea break, after sharing with each other their unhappiness with their employer's management. They decided to execute their plan when they were at Plaza Singapura. Instead of heading for the ATMs directly, the two men pushed the trolley carrying the cash into the men's washroom. Their movement was captured on CCTV. They took out $147,000 and left the other $293,000 cash in the bags before continuing their rounds. The prosecution had previously argued that the starting point for such offences is a jail term of between 24 and 28 months. The aggravating factors in this instance were that the two accused were security officers and that their plea of guilt is inequitable, as they were caught on CCTV and the offences would have been discovered. In mitigation, the defence counsel argued that $135,000 was recovered at Theywa's Malaysian residence, and that his client was truly remorseful, having "supreme stupidity of thinking that they could get away". But District Judge Siva Shanmugam pointed out that the acts were pre-meditated and that the amount involved was substantial. He said the blatant abuse of trust has undermined public confidence in the security industry. For criminal breach of trust as an employee, they could each have been jailed up to 15 years and fined.

  18. http://www.tremeritus.com/2014/02/22/25-foreign-employees-jailed-for-forged-academic-certificates/ 25 foreign employees jailed for forged academic certificates February 22nd, 2014 | Author: Editorial 25 foreigners were sentenced to jail on Thursday (20 Feb) for submitting forged academic certificates to the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) to illegally obtain work passes to work in Singapore. All 25 foreign employees pleaded guilty. 22 of them were sentenced to 10 weeks’ jail, 2 to 12 weeks’ and 1 to 4 weeks’. 25 is the largest number of foreign employees prosecuted for the offence this year, and the penalties are the most severe the courts have ever meted out for the offence. The 25 foreigners obtained forged academic certificates in their home countries, and used them to apply for work passes between 2 November 2012 and 7 June 2013. Based on the false information submitted, 20 were issued an S-Pass and 5 an Employment Pass (EP). An S-Pass holder needs to have a minimum fixed monthly salary of $2,200 and an EP holder $3,300. The nationalities of these 25 foreigners, comprising 21 males and 4 females, are: 16 from Myanmar 7 from India 2 from the Philippines They were issued work passes to work in operations, sales, and food and beverage. Among them were a hair restoration technologist, a quality control executive and a chef. They all worked for less than a year in Singapore. MOM launched investigations between November and December 2013, and discovered that their academic certificates were forged through checks with the relevant certificate issuing institutions and respective foreign government departments. They had mislead MOM to believe that they met the required educational criteria to obtain the work passes. MOM’s investigations revealed that all the employers were unaware that the foreign employees had submitted forged academic certificates for their work pass applications. As the employers were not complicit, no action was taken against them. Last year, MOM prosecuted 78 foreigners for similar offences. Convicted foreigners are barred from working in Singapore. MOM amended the Employment of Foreign Manpower Act in November 2012, and made the offence of making a false statement or submitting any false document relating to academic qualifications a standalone offence with stiffer penalties. Offenders may be fined up to $20,000 and/or imprisoned up to 2 years. Apart from legislative measures, MOM said it is strengthening its processes and fraud detection capabilities. This includes enhancing internal database checks, verifying the certificate’s authenticity directly with the issuing educational institution, and requiring employers/employment agents to upload verification/proof of diplomas and higher qualifications for applications for EP, S-Pass and Training Employment Pass. MOM also performs retrospective audits. In addition, MOM is supplementing its checks with third-party screening agencies. Last month, MOM announced that they had hired Dataflow Services in New Delhi to conduct random checks on education certificates and employment history declared by Indian nationals working in Singapore [Link]. MOM said that it would use “independent verification channels” like Dataflow to conduct its own random audits. Dataflow says on its website that it helps clients ensure that the staff they hire are qualified and competent. “We identify fraudsters and unwanted professionals by verifying their qualifications and checking individuals against proprietary database and international watch lists.” MOM requires all foreign applicants for passes to make accurate, complete and truthful declarations to the Controller. Making a false declaration by submitting a forged academic certificate or certificates is a deliberate attempt to mislead the Controller. MOM said it will not condone such acts of deceit, and will take severe action against offenders, as well as errant employers and employment agencies if they abet foreign applicants who submit forged academic certificates. MOM is also seeking the co-operation of the public. Any member of the public who knows of foreign employees using forged certificate(s) can and should call MOM at (65) 6438 5122 or email mom_fmmd@mom.gov.sg. All information is kept strictly confidential.
  19. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cqMjvVaMsE4 A man who was filmed throwing a kitten at a wall has been jailed for a year. Farid Ghilas, 24, sparked outrage in France after a video appeared online of him picking up the cat and hurling it towards a block of flats. Remarkably, five-month-old Oscar survived the attack. He suffered a broken leg but is expected to make a full recovery. More than 260,000 people signed a petition calling for Ghilas, who is of North African descent, to face "exemplary punishment" for his actions. He was charged with animal cruelty and faced up to two years in jail and a 30,000 euro fine. “He acted with a singular perversity and sadism that has shocked the entire planet,” said Emmanuel Merlin, the prosecutor. Ghilas, who has been subjected to racist insults and death threats since the video came to light, was jailed for a year and banned from owning an animal.

  20. 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.

  21. A banquet operations manager who took to the wheel despite having been banned from the road for a year was called the "ultimate road terror'' by a district judge on Wednesday. While driving under a year-long ban, Tan Yang Chin, 34, was involved in a hit-and-run accident along an expressway which resulted in a taxi overturning and injuring three people. The accident happened along East Coast Parkway (ECP) at 1.14am on Feb 7 this year. Tan was jailed for 13 months and banned from driving for eight years after admitting to causing grievous hurt to taxi passenger Wang Jing, 28, a Chinese national; driving under a ban; and failing to render assistance. A district court heard that Tan was speeding along ECP when he fell asleep and hit the centre divider. He woke up and veered his car towards the extreme left lane, and hit the back of Mr Goh Chee Kwang's taxi. Mr Goh, 51, was then taking Ms Wang and another female passenger to the airport. He lost control of the vehicle which then hit the road barrier and overturned. Tan sped away from the scene and later left his car unattended about 1km away along ECP before Xilin Avenue. Ms Wang was taken to hospital for fractures to her pelvis. Both vehicles were badly damaged. Calling him the "ultimate road terror'', District Judge Low Wee Ping said Tan had been fined and banned from driving for 12 months in April last year for drink driving. Two months before his disqualification ended, he drove at least four times. Two charges of causing hurt to the taxi driver and the other passenger and failing to stop after the accident were considered during his sentencing.

A court heard that Ms Lim Chai Hong, 29, was driving her father and the victim along Balestier Road when she overtook See's car on the right lane. When both cars stopped at the traffic red lights, See alighted. He gesticulated and banged on the front passenger seat window of Ms Lim's car. When her father wound down the window, an agitated See shouted: "How can you drive like that? You think this is your grandfather's road? You talk like that, then you better come out and talk.''
