SportsSG  said that it decided to act after receiving a letter alleging that a senior officer of TBFC instigated another club to unnecessarily “delay and/or obstruct” the completion of audits until after the Football Association of Singapore (FAS) election next week.

SportSG in its statement to the press wrote:

On 19 April 2017 at about 7.50pm, SportSG made a police report in respect of suspected misuse of Tiong Bahru Football Club’s funds and a purported attempt by a senior officer of the Club to delay and/or obstruct the completion of audits into the S.League sit-out clubs.

On 3 April 2017, SportsSG received a letter from a named individual alleging that a senior officer of a Football Club had instigated another club to delay and/or obstruct the completion of audits until after the Football Association of Singapore (FAS) Elections, scheduled to be held on 29 April 2017, with false reasons. The said audits had been initiated in mid-2016 by the FAS in response to queries by SportsSG. SportsSG is concerned with the impact which this might have on the propriety and integrity of the audits.

Following the media reports that Tiong Bahru Football Club had donated $500,000 to the Asean Football Federation (AFF) through the FAS (Football Association of Singapore), SportSG looked into the matter, and received further information on 18 April 2017. SportsSG subsequently made further checks and received information, which raise some serious questions about the use of funds.

Based on legal advice, SportSG decided to file a police report.

SportSG will also request to meet the FAS’ Ad-hoc Electoral Committee to clarify the way ahead for the upcoming elections.”

In response to media queries, a police spokesman confirmed on Thursday (20 Apr) that a report has been lodged by SportsSG in relation to a football club.

The Police will conduct a thorough investigation and will take appropriate action against any persons who have committed offences in Singapore. As investigations are ongoing, it is inappropriate to comment further at this point.

Meanwhile “The Middle Ground” reported that TBFC clubhouse at People’s Park Centre, Hougang United Football Club and Woodlands Wellington Football Club were raided by officers purportedly from the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau at about 4pm Thursday (20 Apr).

FAS presidential candidate Bill Ng, is the chairman of Tiong Bahru and Hougang United. Woodlands Wellington has also been linked to Mr Ng, who made an unsuccessful bid to take control of the ailing club in 2011.

    Why don’t SportsSG file against FAS for misleading the public?

    The election is next Sunday and PAP appointed candidates are contesting and this happens very timely.

    So next Sunday, politicians appointed candidates back to govern FAS and be paid millions and local soccer continue to sink into the abyss?

    Wah LAN, the Plot becomes thicker and more juicer as now the CPIB and the Police also want a piece of the action! They said investigation is on-going. Hopefully it’s not like the CHC(Con Hee Church)case when it took them donkey years to investigate. And since the amount of monies is quite huge and it involves Tua Kee AFF, hope those squatting at AFF are subject to investigation! How about FAS itself? Esp the whole management team!

  • Maxchewy:

    When there’s humongous cash in the coffers of any organisation, the people in control of it are invariably overwhelmed and tempted to churi (steal) some of it for their personal use. They always justify their cbt by reasoning that they were solely responsible for bringing in the humongous cash thru their ingenuity and hard work and therefore surely entitled to be rewarded with some of it? Cannot meh?
    5 CHC leaders led by their Chief Pastor aka Smiling Jesus are right now on the way to the State Courts to begin their jail sentences for CBT at Changi Prison Complex. They are likely to be cell neighbors to give morale support to each other. So kind of the Prison Dept.
    This CBT in companies and other Organisations happen everywhere all over the world since modern commercial life began decades ago. Nothing new.Nothing surprising.

  • The effects of the rat race:

    I am beginning to feel like I am surrounded by crooks at every nook and corner by just flipping the daily papers.
    Untrustworthiness at almost all levels.
    From agents dealing in housing and insurance and travel and religious institutions and renovation contractors and car dealers and fruit sellers, yes fruit sellers, and maid agencies, and wedding planners and trustees of estates, and lawyers and doctors, and religious figures; almost everyone has some story to tell in their lives about their personal experience about being conned. How serious is it? But it appears, given half a chance, many will just stray and cheat
    without thinking about the effects and sufferings they cause others.
    What is the cause of this behavior?
    People are anxious and strained and acting strange.
    Not many are relax and easy.
    Look at the glum faces.
    Too much focus and emphasis on economics in a money-centric materialistic showy society. Many of the rich ones give and donate for personal glory. Living in a rudderless society without a sincere heart and genuine concern for your neighbors is not a nice feel. Everybody seems to care for himself first. There is lacking in genuine grace and compassion and feelings for people. Everyone is self-absorbed in satisfying and gratifying their pleasure senses. Not many cares for the next person who needs help.
    What makes and develops a man to become greedy and cheats without any sense of guilt?
    The education system?
    Meritocracy backlash?
    Policies by those in charge?
    Lack of correct teachings of civics and morals and philosophy and the goodness of religions?
    The missing culture of compassion and love for your fellow men?
    Too much concern on material well being?
    Over-regulated society almost always under constant threat?
    Kiasu society?
    We must dare to admit our faults and look for solutions.

  • Uncle Lim:

    Millions of $$$$ slosh in Govt, its agencies and others every day. Loopholes are everywhere.

    Greed is the name of the game. People see the greed in Govt with its money grabs everything from parking, Chingay, Town Councils, polyclinics, Hospitals, transport to even water that they also want a piece of the pie.

    It’s a natural reaction.

    Also, with a PM who’s merely cruising along and NATO and preoccupied with fixing the opposition ( absentee PM ), a lot of funny things are going on.

    Even braver are those with PAP connections

  • SG GOV Values n Culture:

    First, TR Emeritus Editorial Team should expend valuable focus/article on the present government values and culture of promoting many gambling outlets under the disguise of “entertainment” especially within its own organisations having same gambling machines operations similar to the Two Casino where $100 levy are imposed.

    Many of these gov/linked organisations are operating and promoting the jackpot gambling rooms:
    1. Army and Police Clubs Safra, HometeamNS
    2. NTUC and Union Affiliated Clubs
    3 Civil Service Clubs
    4. NGOs like AA, Golf, Yacht, Swimming, SRC

    Obviously opposition political parties are oblivious to such unhealthy pretense of entertainment especially where bet can amount to $20/spin. The 1 cent jackpot machines meant for entertainment are rarely found in these places.

    I have observed many low income earners foolishly losing their hard earned money in these outlets approved by the gov.

    $$$ GOV Without Values!

  • TBFC shld be TB Gambling Club?:

    WTF man! Tiong Bahru Football Club should really be named as Tiong Bahru Gambling Club if their main business annual revenue amounting to S$36 million is from jackpot machines. Just look at its members comprising mainly old aunties and uncles, is a real joke that the club is for footballers.

    Which is exactly just like how our PAP govt want to refer our 2 biggest gambling dens as integrated resorts ? Not only deceiving foreigners but essentially deceiving ourselves first.

    So in a sense is it surprising that the greed of PAP appears to be quite widespread throughout the whole of Singapore ?
