TWO SG BOAT CAPTAINS IN INDONESIAN JAIL FOR ALLEGED IMMIGRATION OFFENCES

Fishing boat captain Ricky Tan Poh Hui had pleaded guilty and was sentenced to six months probation and a 5 million rupiah fine. While he is now free to go, the process of letting him go free from detention from Indonesian authorities may still take a week. Wonder why that long to let him go free, even when their courts had sentenced him.

He was the second boat captain from Singapore to have been detained. Soo Chiau Huat was also detained n April last year, after his fishing vessel was caught in Indonesian waters. He had been cleared from illegal fishing by the authorities there, but is still languishing in jail for immigration offences.

16 YEAR OLD SG YOUTH AMONGST THOSE CAUGHT IN BATAM ENTERTAINMENT RAID

Six Singaporean youths were among 35 foreigners arrested, although it was made known they were arrested for failure to produce their travel documents. Amongst the Singaporean youths arrested at the entertainment area often frequented by foreigners was a 16 year old, who was with his friends for holiday in Batam.

I don't care what the raid was about, but the fact that a 16 year old was on holiday in Batam, and was caught partying at a entertainment hotspot in Batam, certainly raised serious questions. What was a 16 year old doing partying away in a entertainment area frequented by foreigners, on his Batam holiday. The 16 year old probably would not have been allowed in to any of Singapore's main entertainment clubs.
