Shanmugam must Explain How Mick Davies Remained in S’pore All These Years

Foreign national Mick Davies had entered Singapore illegally and was subsequently found out and deported.

Mr Davies whose original name is Lan Shili and a PRC national had applied and received his Singapore citizen in 2002. He had forged his documents when he made the application for citizenship.

More recently, Mr Davies, 58, returned to China for business but was arrested on charges of fraud and had his passport impounded. But the businessman, once named as one of the richest tycoons in China, managed to escape to Vietnam where he obtained a fake Hong Kong passport and returned to Singapore.

He was found out and arrested only after two weeks when he visited the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority building. It was during the investigation that the authorities discovered that his documents in his citizen application were also forged.

The incident raises grave questions. One, how did the Home Affairs Ministry not discover that his application for Singapore citizenship was not in order for 16 years? Two, and more importantly, how did he enter and remain in Singapore for two weeks using a fake passport? How many more such people have slipped through our customs and entered Singapore illegally?

The fact that Mr Davies was freely moving within Singapore for two whole weeks is astounding. If he had been a terrorist out to cause mayhem, he could have done much damage.

This is not the first time that our border security has been breached. In 2008, a retiree managed to leave Singapore even though he had mistakenly presented his son’s passport. He managed to board his flight to Vietnam despite the computerised system signaling the problem.

In 2009, a 73-year old Singaporean woman went missing in Genting Highlands, apparently, in a state of fugue where she couldn’t recall how she spent her days in Malaysia. But she was found back in Singapore a week later – without her passport.

In 2014, a Malaysian woman drove through the Causeway checkpoint unchecked and drove around in Singapore for three days undetected before she was stopped.

Had these lapses happened with individuals with violent intent, Singapore would be faced with a disastrous outcome.

The government had arrested 8 Bangladeshi workers in April 2016 for suspected terrorist activities. The announcement was made only in May 2016 during the Bukit Batok by-election.

The media had asked Dr Chee Soon Juan, the SDP candidate there, about the arrests and the Internal Security Act. Dr Chee replied that the government needed to tighten its overly lax immigration policy.

Home Affairs Minister K Shanmugam responded saying that Dr Chee “shows a lack of understanding of the nature of the problem”.

The SDP understands perfectly the nature of the problem. In this day and age when there is the threat of terrorism, we should adopt a more judicious immigration policy than the one we currently have and a strong security screening system, one that doesn’t allow people like Mick Davies to wander our streets for years.

These events show that before the Minister for Home Affairs accuses the opposition of not understanding the immigration problem, he needs to put in more effort to secure our borders.

His ministry needs to be more vigilant and prevent the illegal entry of criminal elements into Singapore once and for all before the problem manifests itself in an even more dangerous manner.

  • Concerned Singaporean:

    Dr. Chee,

    Because we are Singaporean, so easy target as 2nd class citizen while jobs, perks, no-caning, scholarships, WP/EP/etc, MUST BE PRIORITIZED over Singaporean to FTs.

    Modus operandi of party against people:

    Jobs for FTs, Unemployment for Singaporean
    Scholarships & Subsidies to FTs, tax & GST on Singaporean
    Perks & no-canning for FTs, lawsuit, harassment, bankruptcy for Singaporean

    No wonder all Singaporean want to migrate to foreign land to become FT and one day to return as FT, the true master in Singapore.

  • Scammugam:

    Scammugam can be summed up in 3 sentence.

    1) More Power
    2) More Budget
    3) Imaginary Threats

    I shall answer Dr Chee on behalf of Scammugam without his permission.

    To solve this problem, we need to increase the budget, give his Ministry more power. And those who disagree with have to answer this question, If something happens, are you are going to take the responsibility. Although “something” has always been happening, like so many incidents pointed out here by SDP.

    If all these, failed, he will start making accusations about others attacking the integrity of Singapore Government. Scammugam is so brilliant that he can fix anything with this 3 step approach, he should be made the next PM and not those 3 idiots.

    Singaporeans will always remember PAP’s imaginary threats, if opposition comes into power, your houses will become worthless, your children will have to work as maids.

    They conveniently forgot that HDB purpose is to give Singaporeans a affordable roof over their head, not an asset, which is the CPF’s job, to grow our asset, not to give us just 2.5% and confiscate the excess, and rewarding themselves for doing a good job “investing”, although significant portion of gain comes in from GLC monopoly.

  • Biws mission be richer:

    All the scumbags BIWs worry about is how to squeeze more monies even from those pg whom they supposedly honored for their past contributions meaning their plp helps to compromise as the siblings discovered to their shork and have to pay dearly for their sudden revelation of the prevailence of plps which have serviced them but now the big protective lp is gone, they turn against them. After squezing the dumb and daft Sinkies, their only thought is how to throw the excess, after getting and doing what they jolly well want to hell with the kpkb of the dumb and daft, into the sewers to the delight of the gorilla having castrated all the plps including the lp being poed and po the others whether phyiscally available or not.

    So who crosses the border ta tengor ta apa la. If trouble come then tell the dumbs and dafts cooperate la. Report if you see snakes around but not mistook BIWs and Plp esp the big one who would nit be seen anyway as they r always stoopi deep down doing what they would do to enhance their performance siok factor.

    Doesn’t SD already know these BIWs have their eyes fixed on WP and SD and any gorilla hunter or GH. Any free time is to perfect how to spew shit thru the opposie hole. Time for the wpsd&gh to store all TR E free plps eradication tools to be ready for use when the GE not gorilla entry buy gorrilla extermination time comes. By then hopefully the derogatority labelled dafts and dumbs by those plps including the small banana who has nfi how to play or sink the ball of the trumpy and queenie, would have swollow enough medicines to cure their dumbness and to have gotten back their honour and pride plus ball back intact.

  • No Win No Fee:

    The world’s most powerful passport has built-in flaws that can be forged. Like any man made product there is always another person somewhere in this world who can produce it or do better. Our obsession with wanting the best for ourselves always leaves us behooved. But we never learn our lesson from our past mistakes and that leads us to repeat our mistakes.

    With our multi million or even billion dollar softwares and hardware to track down people and to help conduct gov business, all it takes is incidents like this for the minister to start wagging his tongue in vitriolic rhetoric to defend the gov’s reputation for efficiency and to justify the taxpayers money that is used to support their existence.

    The gov here is like an infallible machinery designed not to make mistakes even though it does. The gov likes to believe that its mantle is unbreakable but it tears quite often and it needs patching. Quite often a plaster works.
