There's a big discussion on this topic now. We've read of a few cases of our fellow Singaporeans being locked up for days (one even in his underwear cos you need to pay to wear their prison garb and that guy didn't have money then!). Now it's no more warning but jail for months and thousand $ fines.
What puzzles me so far is how the reports simply stated what had happened and at most how you should be careful about checking your passports before entering the checkpoint. They didn't mention HOW DID IT HAPPEN IN THE FIRST PLACE??? Maybe it's a political thingy and they have to be careful about pointing fingers?
I find it plain lame that the immigration officer can overlook or forget to stamp the passport. We are not talking about a one-off case but now several of our Sporeans have been thru the nasty experience. And we are also not even talking about those jokers who have to stamp 100 passports at one go. How could they have missed it?
What do you all think? Is it an intentional act? You know, because of $ and corruption. If anything, I think the one who should be jailed and fined are the guilty immigration people. They failed in their jobs and increased the likelihood that illegal immigrants can enter Malaysia.
Somehow, I smell something more...
