    Heheh, no worries, I know you weren't checking on credentials and indeed, your points are very valid

    There used to be one particular joker here who asked me for credentials at every turn, almost as if he was itching to match his credentials (if he even had any).

    I always find there's no point in stating any qualifications because that will not encourage further discussion. If for example, I say "I'm a lawyer". Then next time people, when unable to rebutt the substantive points made, will say "dont want to argue with you, you lawyer, i argue sure lose" or "you lawyer, whatever you say lah"; or the like, thereby either stifling discussion or finding an easy way out for not substantiating what they say. Or if for example I say "I'm not a lawyer", then next thing people will say "aha, you not lawyer, then why you talk so much like as if you know everything? i also not lawyer, you also not lawyer, why you think u better than me?"

    Hence, I prefer neither to confirm nor deny whether I'm a lawyer, a legal professional, a judge, an officer in the Legal Service (the govt department), a justices law clerk etc. Just let the points speak for themselves

    if it is a sensitive question, forgive me....like i say, i am just curious..

    If it is a public place, they cannot eject anyone from the mall on any reason without getting the police involved.

    Finally, the mall does not need government approval to allow public access to its premises - again I have no idea where you got this from. There is a difference between complying with safety regulations applicable to shopping malls and the like, and getting approval before they can allow public to enter.
    ah...see..here's where i get confused. don malls have to have gahmen approval before they open? i mean, hundreds of ppl pass through them everyday...if approval is not required, clearly i have my sources all jumbled up liou. apparently where i got it from is not reliable.

    cheers to u all. u guys helped me understand the law a little better. thanx.

    Okay, so long as you know that your comments were merely your own "biased opinion" which you cannot find a basis in law for.

    I take it that you now do not believe your earlier statements are correct.

    Hmm well at least that is cleared up. The way it is written the first time round suggests that you were trying to make a point that the people posted before you are wrong, and that you were stating a point of view based on fact.

    In any case, you don't need to try any law knowledge at the mall, since godzilla and I have stated the correct position - just use those (...at ur own risk!...)

    common sense still must prevail though...

    we know our rights but dun need to insist on them in impending danger.....sometimes if u know u may get hurt, it is better to give up that photo opportunity to preserve your health

    Ah yup, that in itself is another art-form - to assess the risks of whether you will get hurt or not.

    For example, I will be less wiling to enforce my right against an anonymous ah beng with tatttoos, and more willing against a employed security guard with a clearly identifiable name tag and place of employment.

    That I'm sure everyone knows, so I see my role as merely trying to get the legal rights part right.

    Ah yes, good point too First gain knowledge of rights. Next, learn when and how to apply those rights

    His attire seems too casual for a staff. Maybe he's a member of the public who dislikes being photographed.

    Ok so now we know a mall is a private place, opened for public access to certain parts, during certain hours. So what's a public place then? Is a government-owned area a public place?
    Since the government is voted by the people, and it represents the people, it works for the people, it's money comes from the people. So whatever the government owns, theoretically, is public-owned?

    A public place is simply one which is not owned by any private entity. The Government is not a private entity.

    he didn't walk up to me to say that he is a staff.

    but his attire is that of the staff working in the mall. and he's not a member of the public who dislike to be photographed. But he shouted at me and was quite "fierce" to enforce that no photo taking is to be allowed.

    well, you can see the policeman behind him too.
