Whiter Than White Charity or Conflict of Interest?


Home > ST Forum > Story
I REFER to last Thursday's letter by Mr Tan Ghee Gay, 'Why 'no' and 'yes'?', regarding police decisions with respect to the Workers' Party's (WP) proposed mass cycling event last year, and the carnival on Aug 31.

Police do not issue permits for outdoor political events in public places due to the potential for disorder and unruly behaviour. This applies to events organised by all political parties. For this reason, police rejected WP's application to hold a mass cycling activity in East Coast Park, to commemorate its 50th anniversary in September last year.

The event on Aug 31 was very different. The permit was issued after taking into account the organiser and the nature of the event. It was organised by the PAP Community Foundation, which is a registered charity and not a political party. The event was not assessed to have the potential for disorder and unruly behaviour. It was a carnival that involved children and families from various kindergartens and educational institutions. The Prime Minister, as guest of honour, and a few other guests, made their entrance by cycling a short distance. During the event, a sum of $664,000 (which had been raised earlier) was distributed to 17 charities, including Beyond Social Services, Children's Aid Society and Chung Hwa Medical Institution.

DSP Paul Tay
Assistant Director (Media Relations)
Singapore Police Force

Can you believe that?

How not to take it with a pinch, I mean, bucket of salt?

Stupid? Funny? Hilarious legal fact or factually legal sham?

Surprisingly, Assoc Prof Ho Peng Kee who spoke so strongly, legally and factually on why WP were not permitted to have their bicycle ride last September is a Council Member of PCF.

It's tough calling a spade a spade when it is.

It's tough calling a spade a spade when it isn't.

Tough job for DSP Paul Tay.

If memory serves me right, what SDP did was criminal while Case did was perfectly legal when both were doing the same thing - demonstrate against inflation.

Sometimes it's wiser to STFU (Shut The F--- Up!) then to make crap smell sweet.

Then again, Emperor's nakedness can also be Emperor's new clothes!

The PAP are scheming and masters in underhand means. This Bullshit charity arm is another underhand way to gain political mileage. Just look at the list of names in the PCF committee. So many PAP ministers, including Ho Peng Kee, who will look stupid if he rejected the application for the PCF/PAP event.
The manner in which the law is applied is obviously skewed to favour the PAP.
IBA has been right all along !
I have lost all respect for the PAP and it will be ultimate satisfaction to see them voted out of power. Political cleansing is what this country needs.

Yup... not soon enuf unfortunately. The 66.6% must wake up to the fact that due to their complacency(I didnt start this ok?), we have a crap country but a sound economy (yeah, go figure).

I would be ashamed to write a reply like the DSP and hope to convince Singaporeans that their action was above-board. No principle, no shame, no moral legitimacy.
