Lazy and Rude Certis Cisco Security Staff at Tuas Checkpoint (Incident at 27 Sep – 10.10pm)

I have been using the Tuas Checkpoint frequently over the last few years. Of late, it seems like the Certis Security staff manning the scanning X-ray machines are getting increasingly lazy and brazen with their sheer tardiness. The episode I encountered on Friday, 27 September at 10.10pm bordered on the absurd.

On disembarking from a Causeway Link bus entering the x-ray scanning zone during off peak period where few people are around, one would often be greeted by chatter amongst the Certis Cisco staff who would be louder than markets. Upon being directed to the particular x-ray scanner (goodness knows why you even need a staff to direct travellers to a particular X-ray machine in the first place – so much for productivity), one would then often be greeted by another staff who would insist that one empties everything (handphones/wallets, etc) into other bags/belongings in possession (including grocery bags). It does not seem to occur to these idiots that electronic devices and wallets are not compatible with being placed in grocery bags with wet items. On enquiring what were the blue trays for, I would often be told they were “only for travellers without any bags”.

As if that wasn’t laughable enough, when I cleared the security scanner on the night of 27 September, the staff reviewing the x-ray items had the audacity to yell “pick up the tray” after I retrieved my bags from the blue trays (this guy was manning the second scanner from the left who was presumably more interested in me retrieving the tray for him so he had less work to do than actually ensuring I wasn’t carrying any contraband items). Interestingly, this snobbish officer of yours was also wearing a jacket well placed to cover his name tag who incidentally also refused to identify himself when requested.

Ostensibly, given tray retrievals (or discouragement from using trays in the first place insisting travellers placed all their items into some other bags (including wet grocery bags) are not a feature at Changi Airport or the Woodlands Checkpoint, the nonsense at Tuas cannot be a standard SOP of either ICA’s or Certis Cisco. Given the fact that you often have more staff manning the x-ray machines (vis-a-vis the crowd size commuting through the respective checkpoints) at Tuas than Woodlands or Changi Airport, this also makes little sense to justify such diabolical behaviour from the lot of lazy morons at Tuas who are hell bent on having a peaceful night to enjoy as much chatter as possible with as little work done as possible (including tray retrievals after travellers use them).

It’s high time you looked into such shananigans and come back with a satisfactory explanation on how such abysmally tardy attitude can come to pass. How ironic a certain “Shanmugam” has also run as a candidate in my constituency in the last 2 General Elections – maybe, it’s high time I let you lot know at the ballot box if the public should be in service of the lazy and rude overlords who are supposedly “public servants”.

If you are thinking of derailing looking into this through requesting for my personal particulars (including a contact number in lieu of writing a written response), that also will not be forthcoming as this episode (and presumably many others like these that go unreported when you see passengers stuffing wallets/mobile phones into inappropriate bags to avoid using a tray or having need to retrieve the tray after using them) can be easily verified on CCTV.

For good measure, I have included both TREmeritus and The Online Citizen in this email’s distribution list just so you can get a good dose of publicity for such nonsense. Nevertheless, I still look forward to hearing any flagrant excuses you can come up with for the conduct of the lazy and belligerent “security screening officers” who are actually more interested in doing everything else bar security screening. Or perhaps, how one day I should expect one of these lazy sods to bark at me to clean my footprints on the floor after passing the security scanners.

    Terence

    First – who did you vote for?

    Second – forget anything happening because of your unhappiness. You are dealing with primary school dropouts and firmer drug addicts from Malaysia as security guards everywhere – not just at checkpoints.

    I have had these retards shout at me for no reason – just because they come from a failed country to work here and can boss around the locals. Plus no one can do anything to them.

    I believe that the 70% we all know ans love want to live like this – deep down inside they need to be treated like trash and war criminals because then they can blame their failure in life on the government.

    Don’t think anything will change. Just make sure you smile and say yes sir to them so as to behave like a normal $G sheep.

    Hi Terence, don’t you know many of those who work in Certis Cisco is non-SG? These FTs wouldn’t give a damn about what is that word – Security? When they found an NK man with diplomatic status carried gold bars out, initially wanted to arrest him and confiscate but that guy shouted at them their balls dropped, rolled away to the alley to nowhere to be found and let him go.

    Now compared this – NK man with diplomatic status found to carry gold bars into Sri Lanka was arrested. They don’t give the damn who he was. They got balls, why ours no balls leh? Cause not own country mah!

    These FTs know our highest paid Clown got no balls. One phone call from Fatty Kim, his balls shrink until cannot find and the Clown is famous no boss take responsibility one will push blames down to them and they will lose their jobs. So, so serious for what?)

    They have donkeyed backward from Foreign Running The System to Foreign Interference woh. So behind time isn’t it. Never have they realized 4 Fs are pointing back at themselves.

    They have moved back 10 steps, so much a joke. But to VTO is absolutely correct!

  • Call 999:

    Had a bad experience on Woodlands old road going into Jb on Saturday, 28 Sept. All the empty lorries going into Jb were queueing on the right lane of Woodlands Rd some with their engines switched off. When I asked the lorry drivers as to the time they are allowed to drive into Jb, they answered that this was left to the whims of the Certis Cisco guards directing traffic at the crossroad into Jb.

    The left lane was for cars and buses queueing to go into Jb. However, there were probably a few lorries parked on the left lane on this 2-lane Woodlands rd thus blocking all traffic into Jb. I waited for about a good 45 minutes without moving an inch. I saw 2 SBS buses doing the same with all passengers disembarking near the Esso Station on Woodlands rd.

    I decided to do the next best thing, call 999. At about half an hour later I was able to enter the road leading to the checkpoint. I want to thank the state Police Officer/Immigration Officer (could only see a blue-uniformed officer at the traffic junction)

    I can only comment that this second class certis cisco (probably a foreigner) is running the lives of Sinkies. They should not be allowed to run our state-controlled jurisdiction. Big-nose Teo shd reverse the law allowing these Cisco guards to carry guns and bestow the authority of a public servant.

    If Shame is reading our comments, I am sure he does………please think again on what damage and security these guards are doing to our country. I have served both in the infantry battalion as well as the police force previously.

    Certis cisco and aetos is full owned by Temasek holdings part of a large group of security firms with thousands of malaysians working for them. They are hired to police and humiliate the locals and subject to degradation whenever someone breach any and violate any minor and major rules. They are the largest employer of malaysians and foreigners. It is about politics and profit .
    It is all done under the auspices and blessings of this ruling regime.The locals have deserved what they voted for for the past decades.

  • don't know what is going on:

    The manning our immigration checkpoints looks very unprofessional and seems more like a joke than a serious business it ought to be. And this is overseen by the highest paid civil servants in the world. Everyone right up to the top is sleeping. Or distracted by their private interests enabled by those 6 or 7 figures pay of our public servants. They don’t know what is going on.

    They meddle into people’s matters instead of doing their JOB HONESTLY.

    cow boon hwan is not local born. cow boon hwan is penang. look at his behaviour. listen to him lie.

    cisco almost all non local born. cisco almost all aliens. bad as local born is, charity begins at home. give us the local born any time.

    if 70% sheep allows pap to import aliens by the tonnes, sooner and no later everyone behaves like penang cow boon hwan. no good at all for Singapore.

  • too many aliens in local jobs:

    if an ah tiong small shop boss wants to hire alien due to cheap cheaper cheaperest perhaps can understand although disagree with such.

    but if government can hire alien due to cheap cheaper cheaperest then 70% sheep is ffffed. they have given power to pap folks who in return screw them.

    this is our position.

    if the alien, mostly ah nehs from Msia, shouts at us to pick up the tray, we stop right there and then and ask to see Singaporean born supervisor. as a citizen, it is our right to be treated right by alien on Singapore end of the customs. of course if on the Msia side, we lan lan just pick up lah since it is Msia land and the alien being Msia of course complete say.

    repeat.

    if the alien, mostly ah nehs from Msia, shouts at us to pick up the tray at the Singapore end of customs, we stop and demand to see Singaporean born supervisor and tell the pap Lj to wake up. THIS is our birthright.

  • Sg shoot herself - CECA:

    Sg signed CECA with India in 2005. Since then the mass influx of India workers from construction, ship buidling, nursing/health care, IT, banking/services,academic/R&D. For your info, many stay boards, GLCs also recruit many of them. Gov started to award India IT outsourcing projects to India companies such as the cheapskate HCL who mess up SGX trading systems and many star board complain about their service and quality. (The Boeing 737 Max is outsourced to HCL by Boeing Indian VP for software. Not sure got under table agreements).

    Some years ago India gov wanted to sue sg gov in international court after hearing sg gov wanted to tighten FT intake. This year in the renewed CECA, India companies are exempted from the fair employment act.

    Slowly the IT sector will be controlled by them. Unless sg gov is brave enough even at the expense of its investments in india revoked of license to operate. If not sg gov will always be pressurised by India gov to take advantage of sg.

    Its time to stop invest in India at the same time withdraw those with minimal loses before India gov gains more control over sg. The future of India is uncertain there is possibility she can be broken up in few states as many as 10
