Man accused of having sex with underage prostitute writes to Tan Kin Lian seeking assistance

Posted by temasektimes on April 21, 2012

One of the men charged with having commercial sex with a minor has written to ex-presidential candidate Tan Kin Lian requesting his assistance in the matter.

Up to 48 men have been charged this week for having commercial sex with her when she was 17 years old. They include 9 civil servants, a senior banker, a company director, a senior vice-president of a private company, lawyers, a senior police officer, the former principal of Pei Chun Public School Lee Lip Hong and prominent grassroots leader and high-ranking MOE official Chua Ren Cheng. Their ages range from between 21 to 48 years old.

In a letter written to Mr Tan and published on his blog, the accused man wrote he feels very depressed and seeks Mr Tan’s assistance to talk to the Prime Minister:

“I am writing to you to request your kind assistance to talk to our Prime Minister Lee in looking into recent commercial sex with minor. I am one of the person was charged and feel very depressed and stressed. Do you think we deserve to be shamed over in internet and newspaper. Our career and life has been ruined and we are not giving any second chance.”

He added that he was cheated by the pimp and prostitute and he would leave Singapore after the case is settled.

In reply, Mr Tan said he has forwarded his letter to TODAY and had blogged about the saga urging the police and public prosecutor to review the matter to find a better solution before more people and their families are harmed.

“In Singapore, a person is condemned by public opinion when they are charged in court, regardless of whether they are eventually convicted. We are destroying the reputation and careers of 44 people by taking this drastic action. Is this the type of outcome that is desirable for the future of Singapore?

I wish to repeat that I am not condoning the action of these 44 men and that action should be taken to protect our under-aged girls. But this is probably a bad case to act on. And it may be unjust to the people who are involved.”

    Why does he think Tan Kin Lian is of any position to say anything? LOL

    That is because unlike you, Tan Kin Lian actually helps the people and my parents are one of those people he assisted to get back their money from the banks during the Lehman brothers minibond saga. Maybe you can check out his blog. he does give pretty sound financial advice, being the Ex NTUC income chief himself.

      Help them? Did he even manage to get back all their money?! No! And he said he’d donate half to charity, of his salary, if elected. Now he’s not elected, not even half of his money donated? What logic is that?

    The guy shouldn’t waste his time with Tan Kim Lian.

    Still cannot forgive TKL for being a spoiler in the EP elections.

    He knew he didn’t have an iota of a chance yet he participated in the elections, If he had not done so, we would now have President Tan Cheng Bock instead of that Phoney Tan who does nothing, say nothing and is as useless as that fat prataman before him.

    i think its time for the media to be more reserve in reporting… those men have done something wrong but doesnt mean they cannot have their personal life..There ia no need for the media to rub it in and affect their lives. Its disturbing! Just leave them alone! Let the judge do the job, spectators are not in the position to judge these men…

  7. CivilSerpentsScholarsArePedoPerverts said

    Must be a civil serpent pappy dog, begging a former pappy dog for ‘special assistance’ from Master Lee. TAN Kin Lian, ‘ler jin’ (you very) cute hor?

  8. Tan KL is truly dense 2 take up his cause, like his high-5 slogan which made him the laughing stork last Pres election. He really can’t see beyond his nose and shd quit politics or join WP to take a back seat. Clearly, he’s not up to the mark to be anywhere above mp status. Even as mp, it’s doubtful he’ll know his right from his left. Sad.

    Yes these men deserved to be shamed and to think he has the cheek to ask… has he ever tot abt his family when he call for a prostitute? he was lured by the “teen, sweet young thing, girlfriend experience…” so??? you have the balls to call for prostitute no balls to face the music? Stop giving excuses, craps and bulls***….. the one who’s hurt and stress most are the family members.. esp the wives of those dirty old men who’s old enough to be the father of the pros. Their wives gave their youth, sacrifies their health and body to have a family and when old? She gets is a cheating husband who’s going for a sweet young thing….. and? they were made to believe they have to close one eye.. fate of a woman? sad..

    technically when there’s no demand, there’s no supply…

      Nofaith ha …stop shooting from the hips. If that man that you want to shame is your father, or your son, or your grandson………………………..i guess you be singing a different tune. It can happen to you cause life is full of surprises and does often come in a full circle. I hope it will happen to you……………….one day.

    Someone sent me this and said is from Tan Kin Lian. If that is truly his stand, i am with him.
    I will rally support for him and vote him to be our next President. WE need someone like him
    to look after the interest of Singapore men,and our boys too.

  11. @ MosesTan Apr 30 at 12.26 am: The pleas b4 the judge was for mitigation; it was not a defence per se. In gist, the defence counsel accepted his client was guilty. As such, there was no necessity for the prosecutor to rebut the defence. This being the case, the judge simply presided over the evidence as presented b4 him by the defence counsel and the prosecutor.
    The above scenario means the prosecutor does not wish to argue that the accused knew that the girl was below 18 at the time of his commitment of the offence. He wld hv admitted this in his police statement.
    In short, the AGC (Attorney-General’s Chambers) wld hv carefully studied the case for substantiating evidence beyond reasonable doubt b4 it went 2 court. The accused wld likely hv lost the case shd he decide 2 challenge it.
    All things considered, the sentence imposed on the accused was fair and just.

  12. Corrigendum to my comment immediately above: “The pleas b4 the judge…” shd be in singular, viz.: “The plea b4 the judge…”.
