MAN FAKED SCDF TRANSCRIPTS GETS PARAMEDIC JOB, NOW GETS JAIL

A jobless man, who was desperate to land a stable job after just being released from prison, used a falsified transcript reportedly from SCDF, where it was stated that he was a qualified paramedic. Loh Wei Ming, 30, did this to get a job as a paramedic with Royal Ambulance Services (RAS).

He was sentenced to six months in jail after admitting guilty in the scam. He had applied for the RAS job in June 2014, and informed the company that he was trained as a paramedic by SCDF. He produced three fake transcripts from SCDF to support his application. He was subsequently hired as a paramedic and also an ambulance driver, as he has a driving licence. He was sacked in October 2014 for insubordination, and when RAS reviewed his documents, they realised his transcripts was different from another SCDF transcript belonging to another RAS staff.

SG POWERLIFTING CHAMP STRANDED WITH NO MONEY IN MINSK

Ms Daphne Loo, the media officer for Powerlifting Singapore, started a crowdfunding campaign to bring the two home as they missed their flight back to Singapore, and have no money to buy new air tickets. When the brothers arrived in Minsk on June 16, they were told that no visa was required. But when they were leaving the city for home, officials detained them and demanded a US$600 (S$830) fine. When the officials realised that the brothers had no money, they waived the fine and told them to get their own air tickets home. However, they had already missed their flight due to the mix-up, and they had no other means to purchase the tickets.

MFA had worked to get the airline, Lufthansa Air, to agree to lower the fare from €949 to €603 (S$1,470 to S$935). From the crowdfunding effort, one anonymous donor contributed $2,000. The brothers are now waiting for a flight back on Friday. The boys did Singapore proud in setting a world record, in fact, they even paid their own way to take part in the competition. And our rich ministers and Ministries see it fit to only settle for a reduced cost price of an air flight, and not pay for their immediate flight home. And the flight they got will only take off on Friday. For the time being, they are stuck at the transit area with little money left. This is how we treat our local heroes, it seems.

S'PORE GIRL REGRETS BREAKING UP WITH BF BECAUSE PARENTS LOOKED DOWN ON HIM

When I was in JC, my parents told me to break up with my then boyfriend as they thought he was too young, immature and came from a broken family. He was a year younger than me. "You'll wait forever to settle down with him," they said. So I did. When I was in uni, my parents told me to break up with another boyfriend as he was in a low pay, slow progression job and his family was poor.

WILL GRENFELL TOWER FIRE EVER HAPPEN TO A HIGH RISE IN SINGAPORE?

Subsequent to the fire, on 16 Jun, in an article entitled “US Fire Standards Limit Use of Material Used in Scorched London Tower” by Josh Barbanel of The Wall Street Journal, the exterior cladding of the Grenfell Tower wouldn’t have met widely adopted U.S. standards, building groups said, though the material has been used in a number of high-rise buildings around the world.

On 4 May morning, more than a month before the London Grenfell fire, a fire broke out at an eight-storey building at 30 Toh Guan Road opposite IMM Building in Singapore. One woman lost her life and at least 50 people were evacuated in that fire. My question is: Is the Toh Guan Road fire also due to exterior cladding of building?

While investigation into the fire by relevant authorities is still ongoing, it is of public concern to know is the Toh Guan Road fire also due to exterior cladding? If yes, are similar cladding materials used in other buildings in Singapore? Are owners of existing buildings and building under construction also use such cladding materials alerted by relevant authorities?

LAWYER ACCUSES HUMAN RIGHTS LAWYER M RAVI OF BEING A CHEAT & TOTAL JOKE

This M Ravi is a total joke and a cheat. The police got called because he had hit me on the head unprovoked and came from the back like a coward and also threatened to hit and kill me. This was after I told him to stop borrowing money and stop trying to heckle people who had lent him money and face up to his own financial problems which he had created by reckless spending and insane actions.

FT JAILED FOR TWO DAYS FOR CARPARK RAGE, APPEALS SENTENCE EVEN AS HE PLEADS GUILTY

A foreign talent, who thinks he is above the law and has every right to act as a bully, was given two days' jail after he pleaded guilty to using criminal force on a Singapore man.

Swiss national Sudir Soorapa Raju, 42, who is a managing director in a multinational company, grabbed the shoulder of the Singapore man, Mr Tay Wee Siang, 26, and spat at him over an incident at ION multi storey carpark. However, despite pleading guilty, he is appealing against his sentence, and is currently out on a $15,000 bail. His passport has been impounded.

On the day of the incident, Mr Tay was driving his car up to level 8 of ION Orchard multi storey carpark, but did not notice Raju's car when he turned out from a junction. This resulted in a near collision. Mr Tay waved his hands to apologise, and continued driving before parking at an empty lot. Raju was still not happy, and he stopped his car behind Mr Tay's, honked at the victim and dragged his horn. He then came out of the car, started hurling vulgarities, and spat at Mr Tay's face. The whole incident was captured on video by Mr Tay's girlfriend, while Mr Tay called the police.

OUR MILLIONAIRE PAP MINISTERS ABLE TO SPEAK TO LKY IN NETHERWORLD? KNOW HIS TRUE WISHES?

Teo Chee Hean has a direct line to LKY in the netherworld? Despite LKY having repeatedly and openly stated that he wanted the house to be demolished, Teo believes that LKY would now be amenable to preserving it. Now, imagine this: if these PAP ministers can claim to speak for LKY after his death and defy his wish to perpetrate the Party's interests, how much value do you think they place on their promises to us citizens on matters such as CPF and HDB flats?
