No issue. It is good that he was discovered. If he was such a big stakes gambler, the authorities should have noticed earlier.
The resulting database should be submitted to CRA at the end of every month. It should be run in a lookup routine against a register of public employees, civil servants, military personnel and police.
- Once you have paid the Entry Levy, enter the casino through the “Singaporean / PR” lanes. Scan your NRIC card, driver’s license, SAF identification card or Re-Entry Permit and proceed immediately into the casino.
Database query :
• Regular visits (more than 3 times per month) by public employees, civil servants, military personnel and police.
• The rank of those making regular visits.
This will highlight the potential problem cases.
Once potential problem cases are identified, the casino be required to report back regularly to CRA on the amounts gambled by them.
They can be placed on a watch list.

actually they do have such systems in place to catch errant civil servants.
just that for high profile cases like this one, they need to consider the fall out first before the press release.
a lot of Singaporeans think that the government does nothing about it, but it's actually been around for a long time.
