Man jailed six months for beating waitress who refused to go home with him

Yahoo News Singapore   28 March 2018

Enraged that the waitress did not want to have a meal or go home with him, the man chased after the woman and threw punches at her, causing her to black out.

Samson Tanuwidjaja, 36, ended up fracturing Tessie V. Chen’s nose and bruising her face near her workplace in Orchard Towers.

Tanuwidjaja, a Singapore permanent resident, was jailed for six months on one charge of voluntarily causing grievous hurt to the 31-year-old waitress on a pavement along Orchard Road on 28 October 2015. He was also ordered to pay about $635.75 in compensation to Chen.

Tanuwidjaja’s lawyer, Shashi, said his client would be filing an appeal.

The former executive associate at AIA Singapore was found guilty on 23 November last year after a six-day trial. Prior to AIA, Tanuwidjaja was working in several leading banks as a personal banker and a relationship manager.

Man jailed eight years, caned for oral sex on 13-year-old boy in coffeeshop toilet

Yahoo News Singapore

9 April 2018

After several unsuccessful attempts to get a 13-year-old boy to his house, the man convinced the boy to go with him to a coffeeshop toilet.

In November 2016, Indian national Samsugani Jahir Hussain, 46, followed the boy into the cubicle and performed oral sex on him.

On 9 April, Samsugani was sentenced to eight years’ jail and 12 strokes of the cane after he pleaded guilty to one charge of aggravated sexual assault on the boy, who is now 15. A separate count of molesting the boy, who cannot be named to protect his identity, was taken into consideration for Samsugani’s sentence.

Samsugani was a cook who worked at a food stall at Northpoint Bizhub, near his home at Yishun Street 22, which was also where the boy resided.

In mitigation, Samsugani’s lawyer, Criminal Legal Aid Scheme-assigned Sujatha, said her client is married with two children in India and is the sole supporter of his disabled wife. Samsugani had been working to ensure that his 20-year-old daughter had a sufficient dowry, but has been unable to do so since he was prosecuted.

Burmese duo who attempted to kidnap friend's lover jailed, fined

Yahoo News Singapore   

17 April 2018

Two Burmese men who attempted to abduct and interrogate the alleged lover of their friend’s wife in a case that the prosecution called “abhorrent and horrifying” were each jailed and fined on 17 April.

Zaw Min Hlaing, a 40-year-old Singapore Permanent Resident, and Phyo Min Naing, 34, were jailed four years and three and a half months and four years and three months, respectively, for their roles in the case. Zaw was also fined $4,000 and disqualified from driving all classes of vehicles for a year for breaches of the Road Traffic Act and the Motor Vehicles Act. Phyo was fined $6,000.

The two pleaded guilty on 16 April after retracting an earlier plea that they made in November last year midway through their trial.

Phyo and Zaw were part of a group of four Myanmar nationals, who tried to kidnap Aye Maung Maung Thet, 29, in June 2015. The case had made headlines when police discovered the gruesome torture tools that the quartet planned to use on Aye, including a meat mincer, chainsaw, chopper and cable ties.

Myanmar national Win Kyaw Kyaw Aung, also known as Aung Aung and the mastermind of the plan, is still on the run as the 33-year-old left Singapore after the attempted abduction went awry.

Briton gets 4 weeks' jail over rush hour fight at Raffles Place MRT

Yahoo News Singapore   8 May 2018

A Briton who picked a fight with a fellow commuter during rush hour at Raffles Place MRT station and ended up fracturing the latter’s nose, was sentenced to four weeks’ jail by the State Courts on 8 May.

Former recruitment consultant Benjamin John Holman, 34, had earlier pleaded guilty to one count of voluntarily causing hurt to Ow, 30.

On the evening of 3 February 2017, Holman had been at a company event during which he consumed alcohol.

Later that night, Holman was waiting on the platform at Raffles Place MRT station when Ow unintentionally bumped into him. This led to a shouting match between the two, after which Ow turned around and continued walking towards the end of the station platform.

Holman then went after Ow and pushed him in his chest. The two argued again and Holman began punching Ow in the face despite Ow pushing Holman away and telling him to back off.

The altercation lasted around 20 seconds and the two were eventually separated by passers-by. The entire incident was caught on video by cameras at the station platform.

Ow suffered lacerations and a nasal bone fracture as a result of the incident.

I’m putting it out there: I’m the biggest fan of boybands at Sassy HQ. I remember sitting at the waiting room of the doctor’s office, phone in hand, poised and ready to buy tickets to see childhood fave Backstreet Boys in Hong Kong last year, as well as frantically emailing a friend the morning One Direction tickets went on sale. Cut to a couple of weeks ago when I got to speak to Luke from 5SOS in the run up to their Asia leg of their world tour, Sounds Good, Feels Live, and I was simply over the moon. Check out what he had to say!

Yahoo News Singapore

2 October 2018

A 35-year-old man was charged on 2 October with attempting to extort half a million dollars.

According to his charge sheet, Nagarajan Balajee is accused of threatening 47-year-old Aalishaan Zaidi that he would “publish a defamatory libel concerning him”, unless he was given $500,000.

The alleged crime took place last Thursday (27 September) at about 10.30am at Standard [email protected] 2, which is located at 9 Changi Business Park Crescent.

Nagarajan, an Indian national, stood expressionless in the dock as the charge was read to him. No plea was taken and the case will be mentioned again on 30 October. District Judge set bail at $20,000.

In a statement on Monday, the police said they received a call from StanChart last Thursday informing that the bank had received anonymous emails demanding $500,000 in exchange for non-leakage of confidential information belonging to the bank.

“Preliminary investigations revealed that the man is believed to have used multiple fictitious email accounts to deliver the emails. He is also believed to have used overseas registered mobile lines and ‘Virtual Private Network’ services to mask his identity to evade detection,” the police said.

Man made 2005 NDP bomb hoax due to 'resentment' over previous jail term

Yahoo News Singapore

19 October 2018

Angry and resentful about his time spent behind bars at the now defunct Portsdown Prison, a 30-year-old Malaysian who was repatriated after serving his jail term decided to make the Singapore government “anxious” and “worried”, a district court heard.

Khor Chye Siew cooked up an elaborate hoax about suicide bombers targeting Singapore’s 40th National Day Parade in 2005.

From a cyber cafe in Thailand, under the guise of being “Malik Mahmud”, Khor sent an email warning the authorities of an impending attack – just days before the parade. He thought a bomb threat from “a Muslim” would be more convincing.

On 19 October, Khor, who is now 42 and a British national, was jailed for four months having pleaded guilty to one charge of giving false information to a public servant.

Khor was arrested at Changi Airport on 26 May this year when he flew into Singapore from London.

The court heard that in March 2005, Khor was sentenced to six months’ jail with three strokes of the cane for an immigration offence.

After his release from Portsdown Prison, Khor was repatriated to Malaysia as he was a Malaysian national at the time. He then made his way to Hatyai in Thailand.
