Supposed Whatsapp hoax by copycat active PAP member?

It appears that the Whatsapp message of supposed police action that is being circulated in chat groups may have been initiated by an active People’s Action Party (PAP) member.

According to TISG, 2 of their sources  have confirmed that the person responsible for forwarding the supposed hoax is an active PAP member. [ LINK ]

Two sources have now confirmed with this publication about a message of police action that is being circulated in Whatsapp chat groups. The message being circulated reads:

Don’t forward any posts or videos etc, you receive regarding politics/present situation about Government/PM etc. Police have put out a notification termed .. Cyber Crime … and action will be taken… just delete… inform your friends and others too. Writing or forwarding any msg on any political and religious debate is an offence now…. arrest without warrant. This is very serious, please let it be known to all our groups and individual members as group admin can be in deep trouble. Please take note of this seriously.

One source said the person who circulated this to a Whatsapp group of old school friends is an active PAP member, and that he downplayed it as being ‘unverified’ when some of his friends questioned him.

The other source who also confirmed receiving the same message from a PAP grassroots member described it as a “sick tactic”. He said that the police should investigate this.

Additional information gathered by TR Emeritus (TRE) seems to suggest that the wordings of the message is likely to have been taken off a similar  hoax which originated in India.

Apparently, the person who forwarded the message has deliberately edited the crucial part “All India Police” and forwarded the message intending for it to appear to be applicable to Singapore instead of India. [ LINK ]

The following is the original wording of the hoax in India.

Don’t forward any posts or videos etc., u receive regarding politics/present situation about Government/PM etc.

All India Police have put out a notification termed ..Cyber Crime … and action will be taken…just delete…inform your friends & others too.

Writing or forwarding any msg on any political & religious debate is an offence now….arrest without warrant…

This is very serious, plz let it be known to all our groups and individual members and admin can b in deep trouble. Even let it be in foreign country or anywhere in world.

Please take note of this seriously.

No sound from police

Although the supposed hoax was widely reported on social media, the police have yet to issue any advisory or confirm if any action will be taken.

TOC, which wrote to the police yesterday,  have also yet to receive any reply.

    There it is, the culprit of the fake news had now been traced to an active member of the PAP. Another proof of how dirty this regime is. They are the mother of all dirty politics. The rot starts from the top, and let the PLP brigade to threaten the public.

    Reply? All the law enforcement institutions in SG including the kangaroos work in the interest of the PAP only (and against the critics and those against the PAP). They are not a citizens police force but a PAP pf although they are on the payroll of the tax payers.

    There will be no follow up by police.
    There are two systems or two sets of laws here for them to apply, depending on who is involved……..

    Not only police, why cant pap govt to jus come out n confirm that it is a fake msg and ask public to ignore it. A responsible govt should do that and do it immediately. Jus like police recently telling public of a fake police website and Singtell doing the same when a fake emails were sent to their subscribers

    IF pap govt or the police choose to remain silent , does it not mean it is not a hoax and pap should be accused of denying the rights of Sgs to freedom of expression and speech altogether by using such threat..

    You expect SPF to do something ah? Wait long long loh!

    The only time SPF are quick to do anything is when PAP’s reputation is tarnished. Anything prop PAP they just pretend only.

    Look how fast action was taken against Roy Ngerng compared to one pro Calvin Cheng.

    Well, well. “Harry Lee Tua Kee”, how come our SPF is still silent on this? A non-issue? Too close to their political boss to take actions? Too busy with other trouble makers?

  • Albino in the House:

    CNA have been for some time keep producing programs highlighting family businesses and giving them a good image.

    Not just 1 program but several and as a series of episodes.

    Is it to make people think that people who inherit from family businesses are great?

    Lets investigate what is the motive behind if any.

  • PAP d problem, NOT Solution:

    NO WONDER the PAP always WITHOUT FAIL anytime over lst 50 years NEVER NEVER NEVER avoid calling Singapore A SOCIETY – a PAP society.

    And whenever they DO NOT have a choice of ROMANTICALLY, FORCE themselves, especially the PM himself, to calling up all Singapore citizens as a NATION – instead, the PAP ALWAYS used the 3rd person reference, just called, example, “Singapore must this, Singapore must do that…blah blah blah…”
    OR
    “out people this, our people that”.

    The PAP NEVER NEVER treat in action and in words, the true nature nation of Singapore as a sovereign, EXCEPT this WORD ‘Singapore’ nation is ONLY used when addressing others beyond our shores.
