Is Minister K Shanmugam going to keep his silence on the NUS scandal?

I applause Education Minister Ong Ye Kung who came out promptly not to defend National University of Singapore for imposing a one semester suspension on Nick Lim but to admit that the penalties imposed on him are manifestly inadequate which they indeed are.

Bravo Mr Ong. The true measure of any person is not where he/she stands in times of comfort and convenience but where he/she stands in times of challenges and controversies and in this case, Ong YE stood well.

Now, Home Affair and Law Minister K Shanmugam. For his voyeurism on Ms Monica Baey, Nicholas Lim was only given a 12 months conditional warning by the police and the public is clearly unhappy and upset and rightly so. Police’s decision could be a directive from the Attorney General Chamber (AGC) but as a citizen, I feel that K. Shanmugam shouldn’t just continue to maintain his silence about this particular case but to further explain to Singaporeans what motivated AGC or the police to make that kids grove decision. Nicholas Lim is not a teenager. Before the police made that decision, did they go through his laptop? Are they sure that he didn’t commit any other voyeurisms on other females as well etc?

As the trust and confidence in the PAP government among native Singaporeans continue to slip, thinking Singaporeans are asking harder and smarter questions that until recently, people didn’t bother, thought it was unnecessary to ask or didn’t dare to ask.

Since this incident is now in the public domain and not a classified information, the least Mr Shanmugam should have done is to explain the reasons and/or merits of the police decision. Unlike Ong YK, for him to continue keeping quiet while public disquiet and unhappiness is ongoing, to me, is definitely a sign of his arrogance or his weak leadership or both. Think.

  • OYK should be PM:

    A rare event – a PAP Minister kicking ass in the civil service. PM LHL made the wrong choice for PM.

    Apparently someone threatening to smash eggs on his balding head deserves more attention than a voyeur.

  • Empathy:

    Monica is right in highlighting NUS’s poor handling of this case . However Nicholas should not be whipped further and also his family be put on a stake.

    We all make mistakes and I am Glad the Police showed empathy and Monica will do better to forgive which will help her heal .

    I also hope the Police will be kind to those who challenge the Government but mean well

  • Faking ministerial obligation?:

    Better keep yourself clean and bright; for you are the window through which you must see the world … The worst sin toward our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them: that’s the essence of inhumanity … The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.
    - George Bernard Shaw

    No matter what he says he will implicate himself.

    If he says NUS/police not doing their job – this reflects on the government asa whole or that he as an individual is not doing his job.

    If he says NUS/police doing their job – then people will maintain he agrees with this pervert’s (lack of) punishment.

    Either way he loses. So he diam diam. For now.

    Why praise that minister so much? All he did was to say something that many people already said. He’s paid millions to do this?

    @ PLP

    THE COURTROOM OF LAW AND/OR PUBLIC OPINION does NOT always coincides with volumetric decibels.

    At times, it travels in CONTRARY DIRECTION AND INVERSELY PROPORTIONAL to the loudness of volumes.

    At times, the UNSPOKEN SILENCE speaks the loudest of default of transmitted message.
