Thread: No TV can get fined ?!

  1. #1

    Default No TV can get fined ?!

    LINK

    I asked: 'So I am being fined for not having a television set?'

    She replied: 'Yes, if you did not tell us that you didn't have a television set, you have to pay the fine.'
    Just saw this article.

    I know never pay TV tax (or was it license) can get fined, DUN HAVE TV also can get fined?!

    I think it means....

    You don't have TV, it's ok.

    You don't have TV, but do not tell them, then must fine.

    MDA is really too much.

    My wife recently ordered a korean drama serial from overseas and they retained it. It is ok if they want to check for porn stuff and such but the system is soo stupid.

    My wife had to go all the way down to sign a consent form for them to open the parcel. Then wait a week and then go all the way back to collect the DVD. Two trips just to get the DVD. Can't they allow us to fax in the form and then mail the DVD to us?

    Like that I have to order my DVDs in BULK else two trips/disc is like....

    u do not pay the fine and go to a lawyer to fight ur case.

    they think all Singaporeans are rich and will gladly pay for something they do not use or need.
    and yes, u mux be rich in the 1st place to go to a lawyer.

    Is there an assumption that ALL households are defaulted to have TV so ALL must pay until informed otherwise? Sounds like an Opt-out system. Never like it, never will.

    i remember when i was young, my parents brought my to m'sia to buy some cartoon tapes. at the customs, the custom officer confiscated the tapes for "screening"...

    when we collected back the tapes, guess what? all the tapes were still in the original wrappers, untouched, AND WE HAD TO PAY THE "CENSOR" FEE....#%$^&*(

    Sorry hor not all choose to pay n pay, only 66.6%

    On another note , what about those living in 1 or 2 room flats who don't have TV, and are not educated to write in and declare they have no TV. Are they being fined? I bet you they are. Way to go MDA , make money from the poor and uneducated.
