Sun Xu to attend NUS disciplinary hearing on 13 March as PRC students rally to support him

Posted by temasektimes on February 27, 2012

Beleaguered NUS PRC scholar Sun Xu will be attending a NUS disciplinary hearing on 13 March where his fate is likely to be decided.

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.” on his microblog ‘Weibo’ last Saturday.

In the same thread, Sun used the term “瘪三” to describe Singapore uncles, which is a derogatory word typically used in Shanghai to describe the underclass bums in the society. It means a person who is a tramp, bum, beggar, drifter, loafer, outcast, vagrant, destitute and worthless person.

When told by a fellow netizen not to be too fussy, he replied:

“Bunch of 挫逼. My temper these days is already a lot better.”

挫逼” is a derogatory word commonly used in mainland China for cursing people, an equivalent of the Hokkien phrase ‘CCB’ used as a vulgarity in Singapore.

Sun Xu is also currently under police investigation for ‘intentional harassment’ after a Singaporean lodged a police report against him.

While most Singaporeans, perhaps with the exception of PAP MP Baey Yam Keng are furious with Sun Xu, his PRC friends in NUS are reportedly rallying around him to offer support as illustrated in the immediate response from them on his Facebook:

One felt the matter shouldn’t be so ‘serious’ while another expressed support to Sun Xu.

According to some unverified rumors circulating on Hardwarezone forum, Sun Xu comes from a wealthy and influential family in Suzhou where his father is reportedly a senior official from the provincial Communist Party.

While two Singapore students were sacked immediately by the Ministry of Education after kissing publicly in their junior college, NUS may have to give more consideration to Sun’s case as he is a PRC scholar, judging from its tepid response so far after its Provost Professor Tan Eng Chye met up with and ‘counselled’ him.

With NUS fast becoming a second-rate ‘National University’ of China, Singaporeans should not expect anything from its ‘wayang’ disciplinary hearing for Sun Xu other than the usual ‘stern rebuke’ to allay the growing public anger.

    He should be expelled from from NUS with immediate so as to stop him from leeching from Singapore’s taxpayers expense further.

  2. Shimizu said

    Protest? Protest lor. Get them all arrested for unlawful assembly and send ALL of them back! Case settled!

  3. YMC said

    Its ok. No need to antagonize the PRC student – why we might get more deals like that Suzhou Industrial Park – well, that went well didn’t it?

    As for Singaporeans – we should get take it up the backside – after all gahumun has been doing us for so many years we’ve gotten use to rough treatment already.

      aaaaaa sure Suzhou Industrial Park is doing well ????? is the toilet build with the building cause if you didn’t say there won’t do it!

  4. Shimizu said

    @YMC, that’s why must vote carefully. If not, we’ll spend 5 years repenting!

    Sun Xu must be made an example of so that other foreigners will know that citizens of Singapore will not tolerate their bullshit.

    Sorry? That’s a familiar word that was used before the erection. Now erection is gone, back to old ways

  7. ken lee said

    hope they will protest!! so we can expel them all!! do they think what he has done is right? is so expel all that protest!!

  8. Mun Yong WONG said

    we should just deport all of his supporters and him – educated people engage brain before mouth and not just do and say – he should also take his DOG with him too

  9. shockednetizen said

    IF MOE says nothing, then the scholarship would still be there, since MOE was just “disappointed” imagining him teaching school students, oh don’t listen to dogs… nightmare. In my opinion, the govt was seduced and tricked in the Suzhou INd. Factories were still bult in the end, but all the techinical expertise, considered shared, considered “given away”
    They should send him for either Intensive Biology Classes on mammals, change his course to Vertinary Science, or sentencing him to 1000 hours of volunteer work at the SPCA

    people slap me one time i slap myself 3 time. people chop my family member one time, i chop my family member three more time again!
