NSman ‘advised’ by SAF officer to remove FB complaint on unprofessional SAF MO

Posted by temasektimes on July 14, 2012

A NSman Mr Yang has been ‘advised’ by a SAF officer during his RT (Remedial Training) to remove a complaint he posted on his Facebook about a SAF Medical Officer (MO) Dr Wong.

Mr Yang had earlier written about his unpleasant experience with Dr Wong whom he accused of shouting at him rudely when he reported sick at the Maju Camp Medical Center two weeks ago after experiencing giddy spells before a RT.

Mr Yang’s post came to the attention of SAF and he was ‘advised’ by an officer to remove the post during his next RT training:

“The officer while chatting nicely with me, has at least on 3 occasions tell me to ”consider taking down the FB thread” but I explained, even if I took it down, it is on many sites & forums. I think he said someone asked me to do it, cant remember who or which department.”

It is not known if SAF is looking into Mr Yang’s complaint about its MO Dr Wong Yi.

Mr Yang has since written to us seeking advice on whether he should remove his Facebook post.

He is also still traumatized by the unpleasant encounter with the SAF MO.

There are no laws in Singapore forbidding NSmen posting their army experiences on their personal blogs and Facebooks. Mr Yang should consider escalating the matter up to the higher authorities such as the SAF Medical Corps and Singapore Medical Council if he feels his grievances have not been adequately addressed.

  1. i say what i think only... said

    taking down is fine. in my opinion, if it happen to me, i want to know what is the course of action taken by SAF rather than asking me to shut up. If a satisfactory explanation is given or due punishment/warning is given to that MO, i will take it down by FB and praise SAF action in ensuring standards of their regulars rather than hush hush it up. we serve the nation, not to go back and get humiliated. NSF days are over, as kthe MO wake up his F-ing idea before picking on pink ic men. we got enough from trashes outside, the last we need is more trash from saf giving shit during RT. we are forced to go back for RT liao still must be treated like dogs? pui u MO, captain so what? go out to private sector, u at best can only be giving panadols in neighbourhood clinic, if u got ability to open 1.

  2. FUCK SAF! said

    SAF you think nobody knows about your shit business behind those fence?? take down your mother cb.

  3. Life if sporeans no diff from dog.

  4. Annoymous said

    Of course they will want the guy to take it down.
    SAF always wants to “look good” to parents whose kids are currently serving and to other countries.

  5. Rolls Eyes said

    Dear SAF, what’s there to remove? You think nobody knows how fuck up an organisation you are?

  6. Right or wrong said

    It is one’s right to post his opinion in is own FB. Unless the other person or the representitive apologise and admit his wrong doings or else others don’t have the right to ask me to remove any thread that I ‘ve posted in my FB when I’m unwilling.

  7. crazy SGean said

    take is down for waht. SGeans need to stop being pushed around by govt, and take a stand. stop being bullied by your own. if there is something not right. then leave it there.

  8. Limpeh said

    Dun remove pls…recently I had a fren who also met with an unpleasant incident at Bedok FCC. He was insulted by a PTI Jason Yip with vulgarities. So this Is the kind of 3G Army we are toking abt nowadays.

  9. Saf no accountability. said

    Have you seen the size of that bulge under the carpet??????? Still want to cover up somemore??

  10. Wolfglare said

    The government at their best again trying to threaten and silences the people…..only there to protect their elite….who knows maybe these MO or his father is a friend of our beloved PAP MP….so what do you think

  11. Stanley yang Zhen Yi said

    Stanley yang Zhen Yi should just stfu with his lies. As a strong supporter of the opposition, as seen from his Facebook, he is too unreliable to comment about that MO. How can someone like him be a good insurance agent with all this lies going on about the doctor. From what I know, he is only an o level grad. Makes me wonder if he has really the matured thinking of adults pass the o lvl age.

    • talkrot said

      You are the one who is childish. What a load of spam.

    • 60+ Singaporean said

      What’s O level got to do with this shit?

    • David said

      I think it is improper of you to make personal attack on Yang. Your post smacks of elitism. Just because he is only an O level grad doesn’t mean he is immature and has the tendency to tell lies. What has him being a strong opposition supporter got to do with making a complaint against the MO? And do you have any proof that he was telling lies?

    • Unfit medical practitional said

      It does not mean that one who didn’t pass O level is worst off than a scholar. Didn’t you see sex maniac scholars and cock sucking high rank officers in the news? Do we than say all scholars and officers have a corrupted mind?

  12. Common sense said

    Mr yang, you are fucking stupid! If you use some common sense or basic logic, wouldn’t you find it strange that they personally came down to get you to take down the articles/comments of yours, only after so long

    ? That officer must be acting on behalf of the authority higher up. If I did not guess wrongly, the investigations must have revealed that your claims were either untrue or exaggerated, and SAF is probably giving you a chance to take down your articles and apologize in public, since your articles have resulted in such a huge defamation of this doctor. Mr yang, this is no small issue and you must realize that you have caused a huge nation-wide uproar about this doctor. If I were you, and know that I have made up/exaggerated the facts, I would quickly take this chance given by SAF to remove all my articles/comments and apologize in public to admit my mistake. This is because I am pretty sure that there will be very severe military and civil legal actions taken against me, if I refuse to heed their advice after they have proven that my allegations are false/exaggerated. Do not ever think that you will get away scott-free. Be smart and make the wise decision. Don’t be fucking stupid already! Go think about what I have said. Good luck.

    • talkrot said

      I am interested to know… why are you so sure the allegations are false/exaggerated?

      • Common Sense said

        I am just using some common sense and basic logic, taking into the account the course of action taken by SAF to ask Mr Yang to remove the articles/comments, only after a few weeks from submission of this complain…

  13. FNU LNU said

    Two wrongs don’t make one right, so, if you do no wrong, stand your ground. If you are honest and innocent as you claim, no harm will come your way.

  14. Free Trolley said

    “There are no laws in Singapore forbidding NSmen posting their army experiences on their personal blogs and Facebooks.”

    Internal Security Act is the Law.

  15. There is no steadfast rules that you must remove the comments from your blog unless its illegal to do so. If yours is a genueine case to remove or not to remove it is on your own opinion unless you want to do it out of goodwill. Anyway it is already made known to all and I hope there will be no cover ups and justice prevail.

  16. Common Sense said

    You guys must understand a very crucial fact – One has to bear the legal consequences of such severe allegations, if found to be false based on the investigations. Otherwise people will just anyhow happy happy complain without any evidence/basis, just because they are pissed/sensitive. So if Mr Yang is very confident of his allegations and is not at all worried about the legal actions which may be taken against him, pls carry on. The rest of you can go on and bitch as much as u wish, ultimately your bitching is just for entertainment and on the contrary, will in fact get Mr Yang into more shit.

    Temasek Review, don’t be a cock… I am very sure the whole SAF, including SAF Medical Corps, is fully aware of what you helped Mr Yang publish… there is no further away to escalate liao, even Prime Minister knows! I am very sure investigations have been conducted, and they must have findings suggesting that Mr Yang made up / exaggerated a lot of info in his allegations, that’s why they must have appointed some officer to speak to Mr Yang personally to remove his entries. If they wanted to hide matter from people by asking Mr Yang to remove his posts, they would have done so weeks ago when Mr Yang first sent his complain letter. Why wait until now? Simple! because they have evidence against Mr Yang’s allegations and is giving him a chance by asking him to remove & apologize! Didn’t this come across your mind? OMG

      multi-nick common sense, xyz, angsty …. don’t panic. ” don’t be a cock ” (your words). Let your ” fucking stupid ” (your words) bitch serve it out. May learn to be a better person.

  19. common sense not so common said

    If you done no wrong, stand strong. Don’t listen to people with no sense who is trying to scare you. If what you say is true, they will probably ignore and hope the matter goes away. The only time Singaporeans speak is thru their votes so use your votes wisely.

    Dear Mr Yang, Please remember to update your Facebook page with photos of your sandbag drills in detention barrack.

    NSman Mr Yang never give go for it . .. made international new also at CNN , BBC . CCTV ,TVB and more

  23. VVIP said

    NSman Take it all the way. Screw the M.F medical career !

  24. wikileaks said

    NS men should get SMART phones and activate their voice recording function to document hard irrefutable evidence of such abuses in the SAF. .. and let everyone know what is happen

  25. cc chia said

    If what has happened is a true account, there is no reason to hide from the truth.

    SAF like any large organization is only interested in doing a coverup or white-wash of its black sheep or bad performance. Remember how the Catholic church tried to coverup leaks about its paedophile priests for many years?

  26. Z said

    ‘traumatized’, hahaha

  27. K said

    Why take down? It is a personal FB posting not SAF FB. Ask SAF to take down the MO instead. He is causing too much grieve to NSmen.

  28. rTrTrT said

    Tooo much not reviled hard to say those recent case also due to something??!! All cover up. When army got case they always ask us not to speak direct to the media what is this sia??? Threatening us not to speak?? All the B.S rules!!!

  29. KXW said

    人在做,天在看。Mr Yang, you know what you did. Even if you can live with such conscience, beware of karma. What goes around comes around.

  30. lingliren said

    I think anyone who sees this can agree that the dude is ‘kenging’ and just trying to get out of RT. It is not even ICT lei. Of course the MO will scold him la. First time serve army is it.

  31. fox said

    If anyone ask me, I’d rather remove the unprofessional MO.
    Removing FB post does not guarantee similar thing won’t happen again, but removing the unprofessional MO, guarantees it won’t happen again.
    Could it be a “white horse”?

  32. Hunter said

    Dear Fox, what if the facebook article was untrue in the first place and was asked to be taken down because it’s untrue? What if Temasek Times, for the sake of publicity, decides to post a sensational completely one-sided article without even verifying the facts (there’s a reason why the letter is not in mainstream media yet)? What if Mr Yang wasn’t that good a “citizen soldier” or as sane as he claimed to be? Would that change your “answer” if someone really does ask you?😉
