NTUC Foodfare to sue TISG ‘until your pants drop’?

A Letter of Demand (LOD) has been served on The Independent Singapore (TISG) on Tuesday (20th Nov) by NTUC Foodfare.

David Lim and Partners LLP,  the law firm acting for NTUC Foodfare has demanded, among other things, that TISG removes 2 allegedly defamatory articles which were published on TISG’s website and Facebook, to be followed by an unreserved apology by today (21st Nov).

The 2 articles which were published by TISG on Monday (19th Nov), highlighted the plight of 2 elderly hawkers who were ‘unreasonably fined and worked-to-death’ – supposedly as a result of NTUC Foodfare’s unfair policies and practices.

The articles are:

1. NTUC Foodfare slaps $3500 fine on elderly and injured tenant who was unable to operate for a few days.

2. Elderly hawker allegedly passed away after working 18-hour days to avoid hefty fine when NTUC Foodfare rejected appeal to shorten operating hours.

According to the law firm, the articles insinuate that NTUC Foodfare was responsible for the death of one of the elderly hawker and has been unreasonable in their dealings with others – allegations which NTUC Foodfare are denying.

TISG not removing the supposedly offending articles

Meanwhile, TISG has responded and indicated that it will not be removing the 2 articles until it has time to study the contentious points raised in the LOD.

In the long reply (3 pages) to the law firm, TISG also posted 9 questions for NTUC Foodfare to answer, with a view to ascertaining “the truth”.

TISG then went on to heap praises on itself in being manned by a responsible team, how NTUC Foodfare should come clean, seeking the truth, bla bla bla bla… bla bla bla bla bla… and finally in conclusion, dropped a bomb shell on NTUC Foodfare by declaring that it has evidence to prove that the articles are “not false, fabricated and baseless”.

In a nutshell, TISG is basically saying that the articles will remain as it is unless a court of law rules otherwise.

With the ball back in NTUC Foodfare’s court, it remains to be seen if it will proceed to sue TISG “until your pants drop”.

    ntuc shud be sued instead for NON-COMPETITIVE PRACTICES THAT ARE UNFAIR TO CONSUMERS!

    LOOK AT NTUC FAIR PRICE.
    a brand of face-wash i used to pay NTUC FAT-price close to $10-11,i only pay less than $5 bucks at smaller retail outlets???

    light-bulb (phillips) sold more at NTUC FAT-PRICE COMPARED TO SMALL RETAIL OUTLET elsewhere???

    many more items.

    NTUC IS THE BIGGEST CROOK AND CASE IS DOING NOTHING.

    MOST OF NTUC PATRONS ARE ORDINARY SGS.

    CHEATING ORDINARY FOLKS IS IMMORAL ESPECIALLY THE OLD AND JOBLESS.
    MAKING PROFITS IS ONE THING,PROFITEERING IS ALTOGETHER ANOTHER THING!

    I dare hazard that NTUC FAIR-PRICE CONTRIBUTES SUBSTANTIALLY TO “INFLATION’ in SG as most people shop there.

    CAN NTUC N THE PAP DENY THIS?

    Go for it to appear in court. Produce hard copies of contracts and evident to fight with them. We supporters will pour in our cash to fight if necessary. Its time they learn to use explanations rather than to sue at every feedback. Behaving like their masters.

    The death of the old man was certified by Dr as being overworked. Here you hae the evident to prove NTUC is at fault. Ask them if they force workers to work long hours, if so then those union members are sleeping or being lost sheep led by their union leaders.

    -
    Many sites/publications usually handle disagreements this way –
    * Request a correction, or
    * Request to Add the opposing view in the article.
    -
    Now, the AristoCATs with tons of $, throw LOD left and right . . .

    I think it’s really time to send a message that this kind of behavior from a trade union(the irony)needs to be answered. I propose a boycott of NTUC supermarket and any other businesses run by them!

    Go to any other supermarkets for your groceries. I know this may be hard for some people but this has worked before and in this case it is absolutely justified! Let’s do this! Please upvote this if you agree!

  • Just law up& good values:

    A surgeon, an engineer, and a lawyer were arguing about which profession was the oldest, and the doctor said, “Well, on the fifth day of Creation, God took a rib from Adam, so surgery is the oldest profession.” The engineer said, “But, before that, God created the heavens and earth from chaos, so engineering is the oldest profession.” And the lawyer said, “Yes, but who created the chaos?”

    Talk is cheap until you hire a lawyer $$$.

    What’s the difference between a lawyer and a herd of buffalo? The lawyer charges more.

  • To boycottntuc:

    Boycott FP and patronize the other(s), you said, boy??

    That’s like telling a chicken being pursued by Fox A to go to Fox B asking for help, ain’t it?!!

    Which supermarket (chain) in the little stinkingpoor town isn’t, in one way or other, owned (in part or in whole)/operated by or affiliated to HoLee Jinx’s Team My Shit (parent or subsidiary or other TLC-linked business) or GLC???????? Come on, name us one, just one.

    Giant (Cold Storage?), Sheng Siong?

    Stop dreaming, sillypooreans. You’re basically marooned on this ship commandeered by Loong John $ilver, stuck with him and his pirate associates, as long as you keep voting them in to rule (ruin) your lives, to skin you alive over time; you reap what you sow, ‘sow’ live with it.

    Until (the day) and unless you have all decided to collectively boot out those moddarfakkas! So bless you, folks, members of the Blind Association, amen.

    This SGov and it’s “associates” have always practiced their forte of bullying and intimidation, whilst Poreans have “fear” as a prerequisite of their dna makeup.

    Combine the two and you should understand why Poreans are perpetual pushovers and without question, “kia cheng hu”, and rightly so too !!!
