A 25 year old Group Scout leader based at Bukit Panjang Government High School, the alma mater of disgraced ex-WP MP Yaw Shin Leong, has been suspended for allegedly having sex with an underaged girl guide!
According to media reports, the Scout leader with the surname of ‘Ang’ has been rumored to have abused his position to obtain sexual favors from a girl guide and eventually had sex with her.
Ang also allegedly harassed another girl and was punched by her boyfriend. The matter was settled out of court eventually when he was paid a lump sum of $16,000 as compensation.
However, the girl’s parents lodged a report to the authorities about his behavior which led to him being investigated and subsequently suspended.
The Singapore Scout Association said it has formed a committee to investigation the matter and has suspended Ang as a matter of ‘precaution’.
A Ministry of Education spokesperson confirmed that Ang has taken ‘leave’ for the time-being and is not involved in any scout activities as of now.
