Latest statistics on the Protection from Harassment Act?

I refer to the article “Man fined for insulting public officer” (Straits Times, Jun 2).

It states that “Pressed for details by a public officer on how he used up $147,538 in retirement funds within five months, a ComCare applicant passed a snide remark that humiliated her and insulted her modesty.

Chan Kong Thoe, 56, showed further disrespect when making reference to Ms Elizabeth Aw being “a low-class officer”.

He was charged under the Protection from Harassment Act with using insulting words towards Ms Aw, a public service officer with the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF), during a July 27 meeting last year with her and another officer, Mr G. Kumaran, at the Social Service Office in Bukit Batok.

The part-time security officer was found guilty after a two-day trial in March and fined $3,000 by a district court.”

I believe this is only the second time that people have been charged under the Protection from Harassment Act.

The first case I understand was Ministry of Defence versus Dr Ting Choon Ming and theonlinecitizen (“Court of Appeal judges say MINDEF is not a person, can’t benefit from Protection from Harassment Act” (mothership.sg, Jan 16, 2017).

If I have missed out on any other case, I would be grateful if others could add to this statistical count.

For example, other than the ministries – has anyone else sued under the Protection from Harassment Act?

  • Amos humiliate L*L and PAP:

    Can the Protection from Harassment Act be also used by LHL against his siblings LSY and LYL? Both called him a liar and repeatedly posted “negatives” views on FB.

    Hahaha…can’t wait for GE2020?

    Opposition supporters are only good at whining and doing practically nothing.

    Let me warn all opposition supporters.

    If opposition rule SG, Sing dollars will immediately be reduced to S$3 to RM 1.

    You will suffer because:
    1. You can no longer do your shopping in Johor Bahru City Square and show off talk loud loud say cheap cheap cheap.
    2. You can no longer buy 2 or 3 terrace in Johor Bahru and show off talk loud loud say cheap cheap cheap.
    3. You can no longer upkeep your mistress in Johor and Batam and show off talk loud loud say cheap cheap cheap.

    Vote PAP to continue your good lives in JB.

    Majullah S$1 to RM 3 and PAP to Eternality

  • PAP.SURE.WIN:

    Must Lockup CPF....:
    Pressed for details by a public officer on how he used up $147,538 in retirement funds within five months

    See, our PAP government is right.

    If you let man withdraw all their CPF at one go, he will spend all the money on woman.

    After he finish enjoying the woman and the money, he expect society at large to help him.

    Pray, tell me. Do you want to help such kind of Singaporeans ?

    Yes or No ? The answer is of course no. Why help such idiots.

  • Ah Peng Kia:

    Why should a man answer to anyone how he spent his money, except to his family? It is his own money. If he asks for help later, you can decide whether you want to help him or not, but you have no right to demand he tells you how he spent his money.

    PAP sure win? The PAP of today has become a Frankenstein monster that bite even the founder’s family and to the extent of even suggesting the founder is a senile old man in his last days. Secret committee formed without even the knowledge of the PM? If we believe the words of this so called not-so-secret committee to go against even the founder’s explicit wishes to demolish his private home, could only confirm further that PAP of today has become a total self serving monster that has nothing to do with the pioneer generation’s Peoples Action Party of yester year.

    Dont be too over confident IB. PAP powers will be greatly reduced by the next GE. Repent now while there is still time!

  • oxygen:

    THE PROTECTION OF HARASSMENT ACT protects the government from exposed of its wrongdoing.

    When caught with wrongdoings, you can’t probe further in the face of deliberate stonewalling and the Government use of stand-over tactics.

    Remember HLP, how many stand-over boys engaged in YOBBO-LIKE BEHAVIOR when challenged by little HHH on the legality of their false claims of authoritarian interpretation of the use of HLP even after permit was given for assembly?
