Seized Computers and Electronic Devices

Click to enlarge

When the forensic team seized my computers and new Samsung mobile phone in 2016, they plastered all the ports with seals before they put them into bags and envelopes and sealed them in my presence.

All these seals are only for show. Back in their office, the police simply open up the CPU (by unscrewing the back) and notebook. The hard disks are removed and marked as “Original Exhibits”. These hard disks are then duplicated. Similarly the chip in the mobile is removed and duplicated. The police would work on their duplicate hard disks. They ploughed through all the data. It is a gross invasion of privacy.

If the police are careful, they will cause less damage. If not, they simply break your equipment. When they are done with going through all the data, the equipment are then dumped into the store room which is not airconditioned.

My properties were returned after fourteen months. My Fujitsu notebook was damaged. The back was chipped off by force and the screen “scratched”, probably due to heat in the store room. The CPU though in working order was extraordinarily slow. My new Samsung mobile phone became outdated.

The police do not compensate for damage caused.

Attached are some photos of the hard disks, damaged notebook and mobile phone with the chip stuck to the back.

  • I wonder if supposedly the offending messages were posted from an onboard GPS computer on a Maserati MC12 (US$2.85m) Supercar, would the police have seized the Maserati and taken apart the onboard computer to clone it and return it in Mrs Teo’s condition?

    That onboard computer GPS alone is worth 6 figures USD and easily a million Sinkie dollars. You think the owner would take it lying down?

    Actually nowadays there are plenty of hardware that can clone a laptop or a mobile through USB without taking it apart and many cheapo repair shops in China can do it for a small fee, and the Sinkie police are still not updated?

    P/S: I can do it for RMB 100 per hour. lol

    I think those experts at the forensic branch were too lazy and simply uses the most convenient method and just break the laptop apart (since they don’t have to pay for damages anyway).

    What do you think?

    Since this is the fault of the Singapore Police Force to seize other people computer ,handphone and create the problem of damages beside the problem of returning those equipments at months/years later obsolete those equipments ,the police must publish a black and white apology in newspaper , return totally new equipments to Teo Soh Lung and all others affected .And if public prosecutors who ordered the confiscation of equopments failed to find proof to charge Teo Soh Lung to jail for any wrong doings,then that public prosecutor or police head should be charged to jail too .Don’t anyhow arrest ordinary people without concrete proof ! However ,don’ t overcompensate beast woman Teo Soh Lung too for those are public funds too .

    There must be some law governing safe handling of things confiscated for policing? Unless such damage is justified, say inevitably damaged despite all reasonable care? Otherwise, you have the legal right to state compensation?

  • Hhh:

    Hackers can remote and copy all info without physical connection, why they need to break all these things?

    Simple, they want to teach you a lesson.

    We don’t have much human rights and protection in Sg.

    In a democracy – they cannot take your personal items without a court order. In a totalitarian state they can do as they please – as in Parthi’s case.

    It shows how stupid the law enforcement here really is. It just took one judge to show how the entire system is corrupt and dysfunctional.

    Sounds like rape to me. It’s state sanctioned rape of citizens by other names.
