Singapore Courts: CHC finance manager must defend case in court

Sharon Tan, one of the City Harvest Church leaders on trial, will still have to defend her case in court. This follows the State Court’s dismissal of an application made by her lawyer, Mr Kannan Ramesh, to refer two questions of law to the High Court. The application was in relation to three counts of criminal breach of trust, in which Tan is accused of engaging in a conspiracy with other church leaders, Tan Ye Peng, Chew Eng Han and Serina Wee, to misappropriate church funds amounting to around S$26 million.

The CPF And How To Pronounce Roy Ngerng’s Surname

No I’m not going to teach you how to pro­nounce Roy’s sur­name. The title is just writ­ten in the style of Roy Ngerng’s attention-seeking blog post titles. Now that Roy has ‘been Davin­dered’ and taken down the alleged offend­ing blog post, applied to be an NMP, and raised ques­tions from dozens of my friends who are none the wiser about what hap­pens to our CPF money, I thought it might be timely to address some of the questions.

Dr Mahathir Mohamad: CIA and Boeing are hiding something about MH370

In his latest posting on the missing flight MH370 and adding to the conspiracy theories about its disappearance, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad speculated that "someone" is not giving the full picture of how the Boeing aircraft disappeared more than two months ago. In coming to the defence of Malaysia and national aircraft carrier Malaysia Airlines, the former prime minister again said aircraft manufacturer Boeing and certain agencies have the capacity to take over "uninterrupted control" of commercial airliners.

Reverend Lawrence Khong Talks About Family, Homosexuality And His Haters

First, I am not just against homosexuality. As a Christian, I am against any form of sexual immorality – whether it’s pre-marital or extra-marital, whether it’s heterosexual or homosexual. Objecting to it doesn’t mean that I go around condemning this behaviour. I have friends who are divorced or have slept around, but we still hang out even though I don’t agree with their lifestyles.

Freedom of speech has its limits

The prolific anti-government blogger Roy Ngerng was recently served legal letters from our PM Lee Hsien Loong. He was alleged to have defamed our PM with allegations that he has misappropriated the hard earned CPF funds of Singaporeans. Freedom of speech is a phrase bandied about by many people critical of the PAP government and in many less-than-democratic nations. I support freedom of speech in principle but, there is always a big but, within reasonable limits. Freedom of speech neither give you the right to shout “Fire” in a crowded theatre nor shout molest just because an ugly guy bumps into you accidentally on the bus.

Disable autoplay of Facebook videos to reduce mobile data usage

Facebook has allowed video advertisements to automatically play in their users’ News feed and whilst this is great for advertisers, it is bad news for its users. With current mobile contracts offering only 2GB or 3GB data caps instead of the previous 12GB, users can ill-afford to allow Facebook videos to autoplay. Since there is no way to disable video advertisements on your mobile device, the next best option is to change your device settings so that advertisements will only autoplay when you are on Wi-Fi – thereby reducing the bandwidth usage on your mobile data plan.
