NGO: POLICE ARE GIVEN TOO MUCH POWER UNDER PROPOSED ANTI-TRAFFICKING LAWS

ROY 23 October 2014 - 3:31pm

A group of non-government organisations (NGOs) have launched a campaign, StopTraffickingSG, to advocate for the rights of trafficked victims. They believe that a proposed bill on the prevention of trafficking that will be presented in the Singapore parliament in November 2014 does not give enough protection for trafficked victims. and are advocating for a victim-centric law against trafficking so that trafficking can be effectively stemmed out in Singapore.


M RAVI SENDS LEGAL LETTER TO NPARKS OVER HAN HUI HUI'S BAN FROM ORGANISING PROTESTS

ROY 23 October 2014 - 1:32pm

Han Hui Hui’s lawyer, M Ravi, has said that NParks is wrong to claim that they have a police “case’ against her and that there is “no rational basis for the ban on applying for a permit”. NParks has revoked the approval for Ms Han to hold the #ReturnOurCPF protest this coming Saturday, 25 October 2014. Mr Ravi has asked NParks to lift the ban or otherwise face legal action.


PAP LOSS OF POWER MORE LIKELY COMES FROM INTERNAL SPLIT

THEREALSINGAPORE 23 October 2014 - 1:10pm

I applaud Mr Ho Kwon Ping’s bold and frank analysis of the future of Singapore (“The next 50 years in Singapore politics”; Tuesday). In particular, he painted a scenario of a split in the ruling party within the next 50 years. No one has broached this subject before.


POLICE POWERS OF ARREST AND INVESTIGATION

THEREALSINGAPORE 23 October 2014 - 1:06pm

I do not want to get into a debate with Ms Teo regarding this, but one must note that few investigations are the same and the role of each witness or potential suspect, even the ingredients of an offence are very rarely the same. Ms Teo was of course detained under the Internal Security Act by the ISD which provides for detention without trial. That's quite a different cup of tea from a normal police investigation into a criminal matter, which Ms Teo issued the note for, - in this case the investigation of 'an unlawful assembly' by Ms Han Hui Hui, Roy Ngerng and others, under Sec 143 of the Penal Code.


SINGAPORE SPORTS HUB CANCELS MY MARIAH CAREY CONCERT WITHOUT TELLING ME WHY

THEREALSINGAPORE 23 October 2014 - 12:59pm

I HAVE supported and participated in various activities held at the Sports Hub since its opening. I booked tickets to watch the Stefanie Sun concert in July, and found out that some people booked tickets much later than I did and at lower prices, yet got better seats. I gave feedback to the ticketing agent, which acknowledged the problem.


PASTOR JOSEPH PRINCE’S REPORTED “S$700,000″ SALARY – HOW MUCH SHOULD A PASTOR EARN?

THEREALSINGAPORE 23 October 2014 - 12:17pm

This article from Yahoo! News (here) has been all over my Facebook feed today. So, Pastor Joseph Prince has a reported net worth of S$6.3million?! It definitely raised many eyebrows, including mine. But come to think of it, he heads a mega church, and why shouldn’t his net worth be in the ‘mega’ category as well? If I run a company with over 30,000 employees, what sort of salary should I reasonably be expected to draw? And if I run a church with over 30,000 tithing members (and not employees whom I have to pay), what sort of salary should I reasonably be expected to receive?
