just curious, is 2LT Li a clubsnapper ?
Probably not. But I guess there are some Ministers who are nature enthusiasts and photography enthusiasts as well.
Saw Mah Bow Tan with a group of nature enthusiasts when I went to MacRitchie tree top walk a year or two ago. He only had his essential bodyguards with him with no press in tow. So I guess it shld be his off day.
haha, you people should see the exact amount of people he CCed to man.......... i tell you, once you see it, you will understand why this email can leak out of a secure SAF intranet.
IMO, If there was a rule was broken by LTA Li, I believe that Mindef will have to charge him if its this big already. They will charge the AWOL guy to the max now if they haven't done so already and LTA Li will also get something if he also contravened any rules with this mass email because Mindef cannot be seen to play favourites.
But in all likelihood, it will have very little effect on LTA Li's future.
i believe the big thing about this issue that he's the PM's son? i've met him personally in a signal camp before he was commissioned and he was a pretty down to earth guy i believe. it might be that he has something against that officer or that guy really didn't take responsibility at all.
there's always such issues but the matter wasn't solved and he decided to take a step further that's all. nothing wrong with that.

lol, i think it's perfectly fine for the media to report it. he is after all 'royalty's son'. it could be a wayang, but perhaps it wants to be shown to us that even the upper ups do not get special treatment. ie, they must still go through the proper channels.
what he did seems correct, cited with proper examples and defended well. bravo. he had no other choice, after all, his battalion hq was useless. therefore he skipped that channel.
The strange part in all of this is that it became a hot topic when someone at HWZ EDMW talked about it and the local news agencies then ran the news about it.
One officer DB.
Two officers hentak kaki.
Signal battalion becomes famous.
The Pen is mighter than the Sword...
i do not think his background has anything to do with the outcome, it could have altered slightly, but as said earlier and can be seen from the letter, he has proven his accusations with proper examples and correct use of precedents.
What's your purpose in adding the word "white"?
