Police report against NUS PRC scholar Sun Xu: Alex Tan told to lodge Magistrate’s complaint for ‘intentional harassment’

Posted by temasektimes on February 23, 2012

Former Reform Party candidate for Ang Mo Kio GRC Alex Tan Zhi Xiang has been told by the police to lodge a Magistrate’s complaint before the police can take further action against NUS PRC scholar Sun Xu, who allegedly ‘threatened’ Alex on his microblog ‘Weibo’.

A final year student in Mechanical Engineering at the National University of Singapore, Sun sparked a massive outcry among Singaporeans with his offensive remarks on there “being more dogs than humans in Singapore.”

After being told by a friend who was following his thread on ‘Weibo’ that ‘Alex’ will come after him soon, Sun declared arrogantly:

“I will wait for him (Alex) with a knife.”

According to socio-political blog TR Emeritus, Alex lodged a police report at Serangoon NPC and the case has been classified as “intentional haressment” under Section 13(A) of Chapter 184.  The sergent who attended to Alex had informed him that a magistrate complaint is required before the police can take any further action.

Alex said that he has completed the form required for the Magistrate’s complaint and “will follow this case all the way. ”

“Someone has to be accountable, either Sun Xu himself or the Singapore Police.” he added.

According to information posted on his linkedin account before it was taken down, Sun Xu came to study in Singapore in 2006 on a MOE scholarship for students from China.

After graduating from Raffles Junior College in 2008, he went on to study Mechanical Engineering at NUS, also on an undergraduate scholarship provided for by the Singapore government. He is currently on attachment at Schlumberger, an international oilfield services company and is expected to graduate this year.

    ALEX TAN ZHI XIANG IS A CRY BABY SCAREDY CAT. Everything also call police. Complain about SG being police state, want to join REFORM PARTY, then over an undergrad’s posting go and report Police. Go back to your PAP daddy and cry lah, got no guts join what opposition? What reform? What a joke Alex Tan. That’s why PAP always win elections, because jokers like Alex Tan join opposition.

    Do you understand the law, Mr. Alex Tan? Do you know what is harassment? Did Sun Xu post on your facebook page? Did Sun Xu come to your house with a knife? Sun Xu is a silly undergraduate who makes silly comments, BUT AT LEAST HE WILL GET A DEGREE. What about you? Cannot make it into a local university because you have no brains??? Don’t disgrace Singaporeans anymore, just LEAVE SINGAPORE like you promised to do so, don’t stay here and sell insurance!! Jokers like you make me ashamed to vote Opposition!!!

    “Alex Tan Zhi Xiang (Reform Party) was the “on loan” candidate from Singapore People’s Party to Reform Party.

    Prior to the Elections, he arrogantly declared to Singaporeans that he would leave Singapore if he didn’t win the General Election 2011. However, he has forgotten his commitment.

    The 24-year-old Insurance Agent was brought to fame when he posted vulgarities on Young PAP facebook, and later disclosed his unhappiness on being banned by the Administrators of the facebook.”
