How robust is the process of the Singapore government in granting PRs?

I refer to the report by Straits Times that a Singapore Permanent Resident (of Nigerian nationality) Amos Paul Gabriel, is jailed for his role in receiving stolen money and money laundering scheme.

It was not mentioned in the news when Gabriel became a PR but CitiBank in New York was cheated of US$27.2 million in 2008 and he was sentenced to 3 years’ jail only yesterday. The years between 2008 and 2019 is a very long 11 years.

Assuming he became a PR before 2008, was his PR status promptly revoked by the Singapore authority when his involvement about receiving stolen money, money laundering and his traffic offences came to light?

And if he became a PR after 2008, why had his involvement in money laundering escaped the assessment of the relevant authorities to the extent that he went on successfully to secure his PR?

What is frightening is that Gabriel is not alone. Not too long ago, that charlatan polytechnic lecturer Mikhy K. Farrera-Brochez was another.

I cannot help but wonder if the PAP government’s assessments and evaluations of PR applications are robust enough, or it is a mere semblance of robustness only.

I wonder and worry also if we have more such scums living among us who we are still unaware of. Or is it because of the PAP government’s policies that we welcome and accept such people as long as they can bring big money to Singapore? In other words, is Singapore providing a safe haven for them?

The PAP government owes citizens proper accountability and explanations about this case.

All PRs must understand that being granted PR status in Singapore is a privilege and not a licence to enjoy their illegal gotten gains and good years here. Incompetent governments may, however, have other ideas.

  • lky clown prince a dud:

    It is to everyone’s amazement when lky clown prints said, billionaires are welcome to Singapore.

    ffff lky clown prints logic. Can make S$m means good human to join the rest of 70% sheep small island nation?

    ffff NO.

    Ahyway, when lky clown prints said INDIAN is malay for selected president, we knew immediatly lky clown prints has lied. In other words, a dishonest human as vouced by Mr Lee Hsien Yang and Dr Lee Wei Ling.

    Why then so many in Singapore supporting such? Because of S$m. lky clown prints puts himself chairman pap PA and gic and lky clown prints wife chief temasick. These entities pap PA gic temasick all with the means to dish out S$m to every dic* sucker and hole licker.

    Who doesn’t love S$m? We do. If lky clown prints or lky clown prints wife offers us S$m probably we would also sell our souls to be in the lying clan.

    Unfortunately, we ain’t offered anything so we prefer to think we are a better human creation than the others. But we sure miss the S$m which can buy us a lot of quality living such as cooking classes in france or chateau in swiss land or S$m condo in sentosa.

    We lie if we say we won’t sell our soul for lky clown prints or lky clown prints wife S$m. Since we are not on their S$m gravy train, we loudly proclaim their evil incest nepotism corruption.

    PAP only worries about Singaporeans giving them troubles. Foreigners? Any Tom, Dick & Harry with money or without money can run wild.

    Any foreigner who drives an expwnsive car goes to ICA office bangs table, threaten them & tell them your Pink Panty invites him here & create jobs for Sinkies, all officers’ boss down. SG, under the LJ Pink Panty, has lost its dignity long ago.

    Yes, and exchange notes on what could have been done better to have ‘evaded’ detection (and eventually) their respective ‘exposè’ and ultimate arrests), which is what prison incarceration is only ‘good’ for: criminals to congregate and compare notes!

    And both will leave Changi smarter and wiser – and more fine-tuned, refined, in the art of crimecraft, to not repeat what had previously led them to their present situation, and start their ‘new life’ as enlightened felons, ready to ply their trade again, cleverer this time and more vicious (to make up for lost time doing time), unleash their newly acquired range of newfangled (through cross exchange & breeding of ideas) ‘weaponry’ on ever more unsuspecting elements of Sillypooreans society (since they will after all still be holding citizenship or permanent residence as yet unrevoked, just like countless other new-citizen & PR offenders before them!).

    Welcome to Sin City, all ye crooks of Planet Earth & beyond!

    是,80年代時可能一百萬便能換取居留權或更求之不得的公民權,但那個年代能擁有一百萬的是什麼樣的一個情況、怎麼樣的一個富人呀,不是像現在在共匪人民共和國的一般四、五、六線城市甚至鄉鎮,隨隨便便指指點點便能抽出一大羅里卡車之多的呀。而當時要的是「質」而非「量」,頂多要你個一萬八千,而也是從全球「選拔」,並非像當今,只為把人口給搞上去(為配合龍爺俞旨嘛),多多不懼、多多不拘、多多不拒,來者不拒。當今聖上所令,要的「人頭·headcount」是以百萬計之多的!

    I – and the rest of us here, except TeeKoh-Lian(g) and a few more of his ilk -
    do not disagree with you
    (and all the FTs who know a good thing/lobang when they see/smell one;
    hell, I would do what they do if I was one above-average, more-educated-than-most, middle-class-but-earning-way-less-than-even-your-lowest-earning-lowly-or-not-educated-trueblue-local eager, hungry young man from Third World slums like outside of Manila and hear the great majority of stinkypooreans – and even its gabramen & elite bureaucrats – are such easy prey and go to try my luck instead of sitting around doing nothing with only maggot-invested fruits rotting for months now to have had for decent meals).

    Stinkypooreans are the easiest prey in the human – who knows, even among primates – world in the history of Mankind and Earth! A(n inconvenient) fact one is a gazillion per cent sure the white PAPpets would wholesomely agree or “not disagree with”, to borrow HarderTruths’ wise words (with thanks).

    The good ones – the really really good ones – them the FTs came in the 70s~80s, maybe up it’ll only about early 90s, got their citizenship papers and little red book, made their pile and left, with or without renouncing citizenship
    (still somewhat useful today/as at time of writing, but not for much longer now
    - latest word from West Wing is The Donald has had enough of fakes – ‘counterfeit’ Sillypooreans – in recent years, and especially now with “Stanford-gate” aka “admission-gate” where ‘Singaporean’ businessman Zhao Tao paid $6.5m to ease his daughter’s enrollment into the famed (now flamed) Ivy League school, that he’s preparing to sign a specially crafted Act to remove once & for all visa waivers for SG travelers to the US, in much the same way he has effectively barred, more or less, mainland Sina students & scientists from entering).

    The EU, Australia, Canada – and maybe UK and NZ, too – may follow suit. Sooner than later, is what’s being heard in the grapevines.

    So much for holding that little red book – touted “The World’s Most Powderfool Passport” by PAPampered media AND not retorted by the PAPpets themselves, for obvious reason$(500,000, was it what TeeKoh-Lian revealed?) – in your hand. Very soon to be like just another North Korean ‘kickabout’·過街老鼠 that no officer at any immigration checkpoint anywhere in the planet wishes to see!
