Time in Changi prison

When you arrive in Changi prison, with your hands and feet in cuffs, a dog will sniff you for drugs, and then followed by a strip search. You’ll be issued a straw mat and two blankets to sleep on and a plastic box which contains 6 sets of t shirts and shorts, toothbrush, toothpaste, plastic mug, plastic spoon, toilet paper, soap and a towel the size of a good morning face towel. You’ll also have to wear a blue tag around your wrist with your name and prison ID number on it.

The prison authorities have decided to put everyone in solitary confinement as part of their Covid-19 quarantine measures. Previously, I shared a 3m by 3m cell space (including toilet) with two or three others. This time I had the space all to myself. I read a total of 12 books (mostly fantasy novels and thrillers) and got to use a Samsung e tablet for one and a half hours each day. You are allowed to email friends and family. But everything that is sent will be screened. I tried to email the daily schedule below to my friend but the prison authorities blocked it. They didn’t really explain why I couldn’t share this information. Most of my time was spent reading, cleaning the cell, exercising, stretching and talking to myself. Occasionally I spoke to the guy in the cell next to me by shouting through the window. Creating a routine was how I dealt with the boredom, monotony and tedium of prison life.

0555: lights on
0715: The bell rings for opening muster check. A voice through the intercom will instruct you to stand up, put on and tuck in your t shirt, and greet the officer, though most people don’t bother to greet. I usually give a faint smile or nod in acknowledgement)
0745 to 0800: breakfast (4 slices of bread with jam, butter or chocolate spread) They are delivered by other prison inmates known as ‘cookies’. They’re paid 50 cents a day for their labour.
0925: lights off (there’s some natural light coming in from the window, but it’s still quite dim cos of a metal sheet with lots of tiny holes covering the window)
1125: Lights on
1145 to 12pm: Lunch (usually rice with beancurd, vegetables, and an occasional sausage or hard boiled egg)
12pm: Mid day muster check
1425: Lights off
1645: Lights on
1700: Dinner (usually curry rice with chicken, veggies or fish filet or sardines)
1800: closing muster check
2055: Lights off, go to bed

    Dear Mr Wham
    I had the “pleasure” of visiting the prison in Sembawang around 2001, which was very old and dilapidated. The cells were so packed that when all the sleeping bags were laid down at night, there was no walking space! At the far right corner of the cell, there was a very small open enclosure for the inmates to urine and shit. Imagine if you were put into one of those cells.

Can ask e*** b**$* woman Han Hui Hui how is the woman cell life there ? Don’t even think Han Hui Hui stay overnight at prison not even one day ! Han Hui Hui ptobably cell visiting only and not in prison previously! Most likely she got a whole ton of donation money later on as such she is keeping her e*** mouth shut !

  • Dio leh Luo MO:

    Sembawang was still a Drug Rehabilitation Center (DRC) in 2001. DRCs are run by the Prison Authorities just like prisons. The overcrowded DRCs are a national disgrace and inhumane. That’s why some drug inmates prefer to send to prison, instead of the DRC. The only way that will happen is to be charged in Court. So at that time it was not uncommon for drug-addicts to commit drug-related crime. Meaning taking drugs and committing petty crime simultaneously. Hoping to serve jail-time in prison when arrested instead of being sent to the DRC. Sometimes a jail sentence is much shorter than a stint in the DRC. No such loopholes now. The only choice left is between a rock and a hard place. Huat ah.

    Reported on Straits Times :Quote-”Doctor jailed and caned for assaulting girlfriend struck off medical register…

    Clarence Teo Shun Jie physically assaulted Ms Rachel Lim En Hui, leaving her with a brain haemorrhage and fractures.PHOTOS: ST FILE

    Salma Khalik
    Senior Health Correspondent
    PUBLISHEDMAR 8, 2021,.

    SINGAPORE – The doctor who was convicted last year of physically assaulting his then girlfriend, leaving her with a brain haemorrhage and fractures, has been struck off the Register of Medical Practitioners.

    Clarence Teo Shun Jie was referred to the Singapore Medical Council’s disciplinary tribunal last year, soon after his sentencing in June which saw him receive three years, six months and two weeks’ jail, with four strokes of the cane and a fine of $4,000.

    Under the Medical Registration Act, a medical practitioner convicted of a crime that implies “a defect in character which makes him unfit to practise medicine” may be referred to the disciplinary tribunal.

    Punishment can include fines, suspensions and removal from the register of medical practitioners.

    Teo, who was a locum, physically assaulted his then girlfriend on several occasions in 2017.

    He had met the victim in February that year on a dating app. About a month later, during an argument, Teo assaulted her for the first time.

    He did it again later that month and a third time in August 2017, assaulting her in his flat.

    He locked her in a room and repeatedly assaulted her when she refused to have sexual intercourse with him. This attack took place over a two-hour period.

    Teo’s father, who lived in the same flat, alerted the police at 4.12am. Teo was arrested and the woman was taken to Singapore General Hospital (SGH) where she was hospitalised for three weeks.

    He had punched her several times and hit her head against the wall, causing facial fractures and other injuries including a fracture of the left little finger.

    The court heard that the 36-year-old had targeted her face “due to his deep-seated urge to ruin it”.

    In his defence, he told the court he had a drinking problem and suffered from alcoholic blackouts.

    Teo, who is in prison, pleaded guilty to the disciplinary tribunal charges brought against him, which were based on the court charges.

    He did not contest the allegation that his conviction on the criminal charges implying a defect in character makes him unfit for the medical profession…

    Response : This doctor just hit his girlfriend but haven’t killed her yet .Why don’t bast**d b**$* Kasisviswanathan Shanmugam explain for people to understand better as to why that case of ex policeman wife murder her maid to death also no need to be caned on her backside and still can be cover up by the whole con people court judges,con people public prosecutor ,and con people law of Singapore to prevent her from charged with “murder” and be hanged !Comparing,which case is more serious ?

  • Elites screw Singaporeans:

    The REAL reason that Jolovan Wham was released from prison was not because of good behaviour. It was because of PAP MP Louise Ng committed the same offence that Jolovan was charged for.
    As Jolovan Wham was released early the PAP has an excuse to a go easy on the PAP MP.The most the PAP MP will be given is a STERN WARNING.
    The above I can understand.What I don’t understand is why the Chinese male and female all have English names..Are they ashamed of their Chinese names.Are they big hypocrites by calling the white man Ang Mo but taking their name.The white man is left with no second name and comes with names like Salt,Maker and all sorts of funny second names.

    And if Jolovan Wham realky went to prison for that smiley logo cardboard,then it does not serve justice if the judge let louis Ng who commit a similar offence with just a fine only ? Not fair ,right ? No justice ,right ? Send Louis Ng to jail too ,right ? Why need so long to serve judgment to Louis Ng’s case ? Pui!

    Tan Chak Yee was banned for driving for nine months. TNP PHOTO: KELVIN CHNG
    Mar 12, 2021 06:00 am

    A 33-year-old woman was fined $3,500 and disqualified from driving for nine months yesterday after she hit two people with her car at a carpark.

    Tan Chak Yee pleaded guilty to one count of causing grievous hurt by a negligent act.

    Another similar charge was taken into consideration during sentencing.

    The court was told that at about 4.40pm on Oct 27, 2019, Tan and her husband left Block 252 Jurong East Street 24 after having lunch at the coffee shop. They intended to return home at Teban Gardens.

    Tan was driving while her husband sat next to her in the front passenger seat.

    But as she drove off from the parking lot and turned left towards the sheltered crossing, she hit the two women who were walking in front of the car with a trolley.

    A minibus driver stepped forward to assist the victims and took them to Ng Teng Fong General Hospital.

    Tan’s husband accompanied the victims in the minibus while she drove to the hospital separately.

    One victim, a 48-year-old woman, suffered rib fractures and minor injuries to her chest and right knee, and was given 14 days of hospitalisation leave.

    The other victim, a 55-year-old woman, suffered minor injuries to her elbow and was given three days of medical leave.

    Both victims made police reports later that evening.

    Deputy Public Prosecutor Deborah Lee asked the court to issue a high fine and to disqualify Tan from driving for nine months.

    The DPP noted it was possible that the view of the accused was blocked because of traffic conditions at the time of the accident, and that both victims did not suffer serious injuries.

    For causing grievous hurt by a negligent act, Tan could have been jailed for up to two years, or fined up to $5,000, or both. “Unquote .

    Reported on the TISG :Quote-”…

    Anna Maria Romero

    March 16, 2021…

    Singapore—The defence lawyer for a former Grab driver accused of attempting to rape a female passenger claims that the woman had consented to his advances.
    The lawyer for Tan Yew Sin says that, despite her intoxicated state, the woman gave her consent to the driver and that the sounds she made are proof that she may have been an active participant when he kissed and fondled her,
    The High Court trial for the former Grab driver, who has been accused of one count each of attempted rape, sexual assault by penetration and outrage of modesty, was held on Monday (Mar 15).
    He is said to have committed the acts in the early morning hours of May 19, 2018.

    The woman, whose identity is undisclosed for her own protection, was 19 when the incident occurred. 
    Tan, 46,…
    But he also claimed that she had “participated in some of the sexual acts”.

    According to Tan’s lawyer, Mr Chenthil Kumarasingam, footage from inside the vehicle show that the victim had a “coherent” conversation with the driver.
    He further said that the sounds she made during his sexual advances showed her participation in the activity.
    Mr Chenthil added that when Tan went to the back seat to try to have sexual activities with her for the second time, she said “no” and Tan stopped.
    The lawyer said, ”The moment she said no, my client stopped and moved to the front… She was able to refuse consent.”

    However, according to straitstimes.com, an expert witness’ opinion on the matter was cited by Deputy Public Prosecutor M. Kayal Pillay.

    The expert witness said that the victim had been very drunk at the time of the incident and did not have the capacity to consent to what Tan had initiated…

    Ms Pillay said that the moans captured on camera could have merely been a function of physical stimulation, and not a sign of participation. 
    Justice Pang Khang Chau said he’ll give his ruling on the case at a later date.
    In the early morning hours of May 19, 2018, Tan picked up the victim from a bar at Seletar Aerospace Park. A friend had booked a Grab to take her home to her condominium in Jalan Loyang Besar.
    The friend told Tan that the woman was drunk and gave him a plastic bag…
    But when she got to her condominium, she could not enter the gate. 
    When she started crying, Tan took her back to the car, where he tried to initiate sexual acts with her. He then drove to a secluded area, got into the back sear with her, and fondled her, sexually assaulted her, and attempted to rape her.
    She refused him….

    Response : In such cases, woman face and name need to be reveal and not continue blocked by media ? If she is a willing partner and had lied ,that man will be dead meat in prison plus caning ! How come she cannot enter her own confominium gate ? Security guard cannot help her? Why ? Maybe she is visitor ? Is she a working in the bar at Seletar Aerospace park in the early morning hours ?

    Housewife knew mildly intellectually disabled boy, 15, liked her daughter and invited him to stay over
    Shaffiq Alkhatib
    Mar 18, 2021…

    A housewife performed sexual acts on her daughter’s underage male schoolmate while the girl, then 13, was lying on the same bed, a district court heard yesterday.

    The woman was aware that the mildly intellectually disabled boy, who was 15 at the time, liked her daughter and wanted to have a relationship with the girl.

    The 45-year-old Singaporean woman was sentenced yesterday to a year in jail after she pleaded guilty to two counts of committing an obscene act on a minor.

    She cannot be named due to a gag order to protect the boy’s identity.

    Deputy Public Prosecutor Hidayat Amir said that some time last year, some students from the school created a chat group on WhatsApp and the woman was included in it.

    In a private conversation, the boy told her about his problems with his then girlfriend and the housewife comforted him. As the conversation went on, she realised the boy wanted to have a relationship with her daughter….

    By March last year, the housewife started calling him “dear” and considered him her godson. She invited him to her flat and the boy accepted the offer as he wanted to meet the girl.

    Some time later, the woman would watch the two teenagers’ antics on a bed, but told the boy he could not kiss her daughter’s lips as she was “still very fresh”.

    The boy started staying over at the flat soon after and he shared the same bed with the mother-daughter pair.

    On several occasions while they were lying in bed, the woman would kiss the victim in the mouth and hug him.

    The trio were in bed on March 23 last year when the woman slipped her hand into his underwear and performed a sexual act on him.

    She told the boy to turn around when he told her that he felt uncomfortable, and continued touching him.

    Despite this, he did not ask her to stop as he was afraid she would shout at him.

    The housewife committed a similar act on him three days later with her daughter resting nearby, the court heard.

    The boy went to school later that day and told a social worker about his ordeal. The police were then alerted.

    The woman’s bail was set at $15,000 yesterday and she was ordered to surrender herself at the state courts on April 14 to begin serving her sentence.”Unquote .

    Response : One year jail only for a woman sex pervert ? So the world is round and woman is equally as perverted as man ! So how come this woman pervert cannot be identified out .Will other male become her victims in future ? No need to cane for woman molesters backside meh ?Did this woman rape him too ? Pui ! Singapore whole bunch of e*** women public prosecutor no need to appeal for higher jail sentence ? K Shanmugam is really an e*** shameless b**$* not to set law to cane woman molester,woman murderer,woman criminals of all sort !Pui!

    A man who allegedly performed a lewd act in front of three women on a bus is currently assisting with investigations, the police told Stomp.

    Facebook user Jorene Ng had recounted the “disgusting act” that she and her sisters encountered on bus service 225G on Monday (March 29), at around 12.05am.
    “We were the first few to enter the bus and he followed after, choosing the seat directly opposite us,” she wrote. “He then put his hands in his pants and [proceeded to touch] himself in front of us (looking directly at us).”

    Ng said the incident left her and her sisters feeling traumatised and unsafe.

    Foodpanda had earlier told Stomp in a statement: “The photos circulated were disturbing.

    “Upon our internal investigation, we can confirm that the individual captured in the photo was a former employee dismissed a month ago.

    “We have also reached out to Ms Ng to offer our support over this shocking incident.”

    In response to a Stomp query, the police confirm that a report was lodged and a 29-year-old man is assisting with investigations.
    …”Unquote.

    Response : This e*** b**$* woman Jorene Ng take other people photo and posted it and landed this man in trouble who may even go to prison later without checking out with the man why he is touching his own private part .Afterall this man never trouble them but just touching his own body only .Who knows whether this man is in pain trying to relieve himself from the itchiness of those dengue mosquitos,chemical laced wolbachia mosquitos,…and those e*** beasts pests insects reared by that e*** Amy Khor Lean Suan and Masagos which is plentiful everywhere even on buses ! And once those beasts pests insects fly into anyone pants,the horrible itchiness is unbearable and that may be why this man is scratching himself from the itolerable pain too ! And when this bad luck man caught by this photo get into big trouble because this type of e*** b**$* women Jorene Ng thought about is their old madness women rights of protection but the reality is this man is not touching them but himself only which is his own body and own rights ! So there isn’t any danger to anybody but all these women want to create unnecessary imaginary thing for others without checking whether he is scratching himself for intolerable mosquitos bites inside the bus ?
