This is my best friend Shek Salmin whom passed away today because of my Encil SSG Tan Teck Beng from 1st Division SCDF. He has tried to explain himself to this Encik multiple times that he have been going through alot of family issues and this encik deliberately chose not to understand his situation and charged him for coming to camp late.
Shek has always told us about how worried he was if anything happens to him and no one would be able to takecare of his grandmother. He is very old and forgetful and also has poor vision. Shek tried to explain to his encik many times that he will not be able to come camp on time due to family issues but the encik always choose to ignore everything he had to say to explain himself. Encik Tan proceeded to charge him which led him to Detention Barracks (DB) for four days just for being late to camp for 2 hours.. The encik wasn't willing to listen to his explanation and straight away charged him.
A week or two after he was released from DB, he was late for camp again and this very Encik still choose to not let him explain himself and charged him again. Shek was supposed to get charged today 17 August 2015. He committed suicide today morning at around 1am.
Is this what they mean by if you have any issues you can talk to them and they will definitely try to HELP you cause everyone is equal? What is this supposed to mean? Is this everyone gonna see and let this issue slip away like that? If you have read this post till here I thank you for your time. It only take another second to share this post.
Also remember that in the future people from your family are going to serve the nation soon. Don't let this happen to anyone of them. My condolences to my dear friend's family. Below is the last conversation between Shek Salmin and his friend before he committed suicide. Do go and take a look at his wall and view his post.
