    Unreported is ok, at least it won't make u pissed off.

    As for this particular case, he smiled at u in the papers, invited back by National Art Council, and also performing at Esplanade. Worse, couldn't remember the amount of the fine... peasunt to him. I also dun count my peanuts when I eat them.

    MOD is conducting a review on the adequacy of penalties under enlistment act. did not give timeframe. looks like MOD is taking note of the rumblings of online communities.

    I havent read the papers yet.
    Btw, they did not give a timeline. What if it takes them 10yr to finalised the outcome?
    By then, most of us already forgot the issue.

    of course they are..... all our forums are monitored by the authorities...... some for feedback and some perhaps to weed out subversive elements

    Agreed, I'm not surprise that some of them are photographers themselves.

    Maybe he can 'defend' Singapore by playing his deadly Violin leh? Reminded me of a good old Chinese movie, a Ah-Gua Ku-Nian playing 'her' musical instruments and 'she' can kill off enemies!!!

    I am wondering what would happen to another person who was not a scholar and did not have any accomplishment during his years overseas and he escaped from Ns.

    Will the Court here gives him a more heavy punishment? Maybe go to jail?

    Reason being he is not a scholar and has no talent which the Singapore Government so desperately wanted. Thus, there is no merit from his side that could trade for the special treatment that the other guy is getting now.

    This is very sad!!! Sad!!! SAd!!!!

    WHERE IS THE "BASE ON EQUALITY & JUSTICE" we were used to reciting every morning during our school days?????
