Police Charged Jolovan Wham For "Protest" Outside State Court, No Action Against FTs for Protest At CBD

Jolovan Wham holds A4 sized paper in front of State Court for a photo op, Police investigating him for illegal assembly without a permit. Foreign workers organise sit-in protest at CBD for three days, Police just advised them.

So why the discrepancy? Is it because it is activist Jolovan Wham, who has made an enemy of the PAP? One rule for those you don't like, another set of rules for others?

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.

LOCAL BANK JOB DRAWS DOZENS OF FT BANKERS. IS THIS A JOB S'POREANS WON'T DO?

I have always believe in the Singapore system. But recent events in this country suggest that we may no longer be operating on meritocracy anymore. In fact, it seems we have regressed to colonial times where foreigners are busy snapping up jobs from all Singaporean locals, and the best salaries and good prospects are reserved for those born outside of this country.
