NS DEFAULTER SHOULD BE GIVEN HARSHER JAIL SENTENCES

I can never understand why there are still cases of people defaulting over their NS call ups. NS is not as tough and soul destroying as they used to be. Nowadays, new recruits are treated so well, I wonder if they eve know the meaning of tough training anymore.

The High Court's act of raising the jail terms of three NS defaulters yesterday was a totally good move. These defaulters should be told in no uncertain terms via their sentences that NS is not to be taken lightly, and that if they default, then the least they can expect is a jail term as long as the time they spent out of their obligatory National Service.

GOVT WILL FINE & JAIL S'POREANS WHO DO NOT PAY MEDISHIELD LIFE PREMIUMS

The Bill also gives the national insurance administrator the same powers as that of the Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore to recover unpaid premiums, such as through employers or banks. Such powers are needed because defaults on premiums by people who can afford to pay them will mean a heavier load on other policy holders. Full premiums are payable even by Singaporeans and permanent residents living overseas for long periods.
