She might have been the victim of a perverted NUS male student, but Monica Baey, who was filmed showering at a NUS hostel toilet by fellow NUS student Nicholas Lim, and whose case had been the talk of town for the past two weeks, have called on the online bullying against her perpetrator to stop.
Opposition party MP, Pritam Singh, have called on Singaporeans to play their part offline, and not just be an online vigilante, in the wake of the Monica Baey incident. Pritam said that instead of just making their views heard online, Singaporeans should play their part in bringing such issues to a stop.
Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, who recently promoted Heng Swee Keat to the role of Deputy Prime Minister, has said that Heng will now take on more political responsibility and play an important role in the next General Election.
PM Lee though, never mentioned anything about Charles Chong proclaiming that millions of dollars in WP accounts for the Punggol SMC went missing, and that was not substantiated with hard facts. In fact, since Charles Chong won back Punggol SMC, his claims had never been proven, nor had the new Punggol SMC management commenced any legal proceedings against the claims of loss money. So was this fake news, and if this is fake news, is Charles Chong getting away with it?
NUS students have cried foul over the Town Hall meeting organised hastily by NUS to address the sexual misconduct case where most said NUS had failed in its handling of the perpetrator and victim. Students and netizens alike have called NUS' punishment of Nicholas Lim, who had videoed Ms Monica Baey while she was in the shower as inadequate.
Most recently, Singaporeans have been impressed with former Singaporean Cliff Tan, who came up with a map design of the MRT system that is not linear and rigid. Most have also called on LTA to update their map design with that of Cliff Tan's, as the LTA ones are in straight lines and uses 45 degree angles.
Giam also took offence on how the local media keep their focus on the victim, so much so that the victim's name and photos are splashed everywhere, and that everyone knows that it was her who was filmed showering, but yet the name of the perpetrator is not mentioned and his photos are not splashed in the papers. He ended his post by saying "This is wrong on so many levels"
The name Cliff Tan might not ring a bell just two days ago, but now, thanks to his quirky and fascinating MRT map, his name is the talk of the town right now. So, it might be a surprise to know that the man himself is no longer a Singapore citizen, and that he cannot even return to Singapore right now due to some visa issues.
The saga became viral when the victim spoke out on how the perverted peeping Tom got away with just a 12 month conditional warning and a semester of suspension even after he was caught red-handed filming her showering in the hostel bathroom.
