In August 2018, a former DBS Singapore Permanent Resident (PR) employee caused controversy when he posted an image of a Singapore flag being torn apart to reveal the India national flag. He was investigated and eventually let off with a stern warning from the Singapore police. CNA wrote an article that ended with him declaring his "unwavering" view about how he "still feel this (Singapore) is the best country in the world". Fast forward to 2020, Singapore is facing the Covid19 pandemic. The ex-DBS employee took to his LinkedIn to criticise Singapore.
