Singaporean navy officer charged in Australia with committing ‘indecent acts’ on female cadet

Posted by temasektimes on May 29, 2012

A 21 year Singaporean navy officer Lieutenant (LTA) Benedict Ang Yong Chuean (pic left) has been charged in Canberra, Australia with committing indecent acts on a fellow female cadet.

Ang is currently a student with the Australian Defence Force Academy and allegedly committed the offence when he entered the room of a female cadet without her consent and perform some ‘indecent acts’ there of which the exact nature has not been revealed yet.

He is currently out of bail and his passport has been impounded. Ang is scheduled to appear in a Canberra court again on 9 August.

In an interview with the media, MINDEF’s director of public affairs Colonel Kenneth Liow:

“The Singapore Armed Forces takes a serious view of the conduct and discipline of its servicemen and will take appropriate action where necessary.”

Ang has since been suspended by the Singapore navy till his case is over.

The incident is the latest in a series of sex scandals occurring on the campus of the Academy. Last year, an 18-year-old female cadet alleged that she had been filmed and broadcast having sex over Skype.

    Please kindly do not speculate before any substantial findings has been made through investigations as this incident has a very big impact on the image of Singapore, especially when the person involved is a SOH holder.

      SOH (sword of honor) holder! so what? Sia Suay, Singaporeans already lost face to the world. Pervert young punk!

      • MrBenCai said

        What I have mentioned is that the impact is especially great when the person involved in a SOH holder since he is supposed to be the best Officer of the batch. Singapore will only lose face to the world when it is concluded that he is guilty by the judge because as of now, we do not know what really happened.

        And perhaps to prevent further “sia suay” of Singapore, perhaps we can demonstrate that we are objective enough to not judge on our own people before the trial?

    hmm.. how would you feel if the local Australians categorized all singaporeans as perverts based on one singaporean man’s actions? lol.

  9. Sporean said

    Sporean became anti-Chinese esp during the Ferrari crash saga, IF indeed he is guilty, then should Australians have the right to be anti-Sporean ?????????

  12. Tsk! Tsk! Noti boy. didn’t do your homework and so didn’t get it right. Don’t believe all the dating tips you read on the internet. Some are nothing more than fairy tales.

    P@P / G0vT / S@F confirm will try to show they are law enforcement and punish the singaporean rather than defend for him. Wanna bet??

    I’m surprised that no one has picked up on what really happened and surprised at the vitriolic reaction of Singaporean posters on this topic. Lta Benedict Ang was obviously a healthy, red blooded male Singaporean with a normal high sex drive that all young men at his age possess. He was, I believe, not married and so when an opportunity arose for him to engage with a member of the opposite sex, he stepped up to the plate. Unfortunately however, he was unprepared for the jealous, racist and cowardly actions of his fellow Australian cadets. He made the markedly poor judgment of thinking that he was one of them and they rewarded him by stabbing him in the back. If you read between the lines, do we really think that no Australian cadets were engaging in any sexual escapades throughout their course and that the whole military academy were made up of monks and nuns except for one stupid Asian? They could not abide the fact that an Asian was getting something that some of them weren’t. If you look at the article, you would have noticed that a Pakistani cadet was also set up/fixed last year by his fellow cadets. All their talk about “mateship” and not “dobbing” (tellling tales) others in are all lies when it comes to Asians. In their eyes, we as Asians are less than animals and deserve to be treated as such. If we must judge Lta Benedict Ang, then let us judge him on the basis of his stupidity and poor judgment in trusting the words of his fellow Australian cadets, in thinking he was actually one of them and for his poor social skills in not recognising the hate for him in their eyes.

    • ANGRY Bird said

      exactly. he thinks he’s intelligent (like most Sg scholars) but in actual fact, doesn’t even have COMMON SENSE! Stupid fella! Serve him right.

    • rob said

      Funny how u label aussies as being racist at Singaporeans, while you discriminate prc and banglas. So here is a joke for you all..all of you migrated to this country somewhere down your family treand better life. So it also makes you all a migrant. You allshow so much anger that you feel your country is being invaded by foreigners that you will migrate to anot country. Haha. So now think about it, what difference is there between you all and a bangla or a prc?

      As much as we should not judge on LTA Benedict before the results are out, I think we should not judge on the Australians too.

  16. Singaporean said

    So the Australian authorities can impound a Singaporean’s passport, and our authorities cannot impound the foreigners who break our laws & are out on bail? What gives? Is impounding of passports up to the discretion of the judge? Maybe it shouldn’t! Maybe it should be made compulsory! Clearly a hefty bail isn’t enough these days.

  17. Mr. Triangle said

    wow lol drink/party whole night then go room for one night stand. Wake up, found it’s fellow colleague and Asian so more.. so report it?

    Or might be gossip got out of hand then superiors know. When questioned, female panicked and said the guy “forced” himself on her..

    It’s the 21st century, the female is a TRAINED armed forces personal (Navy). How can a man just come into her room and perform “indecent acts” without getting his ASS HANDED TO HIM?

    Logic much?

  18. Dude said

    For those who harp on about the alleged racism, well, actually, no, there have also been Australian cadets (as in, white Caucasians since that is what some of you seem to think all Australians are) reported for sexual assault.

    Moreover, it is completely possible for a trained Navy person to be sexually assaulted.

    These commenters are missing the point that a serious crime has been committed, regardless of the race or circumstances or location.

  19. ANGRY Bird said

    I think he has watched too many Western movies always include kissing and ending up in bed scenes. So he think all Caucasian women are cheap and sex crazed. That’s probably why he tried to seduce her this way thinking it will work. Damn stupid fella . . . his little no common sense pea brains are in his arse this time!

    sg gov have no guts to impound foreigner passport- even sg have exytradition with Australia. Australia act first and talk later.

    sg sh learn from Aussie gov.

    Benedict is not proven guilty yet….sometimes ang moh girls, especially those pretty ones with boobbs, can be very itchy ones. My uni lab partner years ago also like that…. But today’s girls want to get attention, and can go to the extent to tell lies, so boys: be careful

    The news did not mention forced entry into the female’s room, so more likely he was invited over

  22. Steve Lee said

    Honey trap!!! Do you think someone who has spent years building up his career and has been law abiding all his life would suddenly go against all his upbringing and use force on the girl? He was obviously lured into the room and set up by his fellow cadets. Operation executed, enemy destroyed, objective attained. One more stupid Asian bites the dust.
