Singapore woman under police investigation for hanging PRC flag outside Hougang flat

Posted by temasektimes on July 26, 2012

A 54 year old Singaporean woman has been called up for questioning by the police for hanging a PRC flag over the parapet of a flat in Hougang last Saturday.

A netizen took a snapshot of the PRC flag hanging alongside a Singapore flag and uploaded it on a government-owned portal, sparking a massive outcry among Singaporeans who are becoming increasingly frustrated at the relentless influx of PRC immigrants.

It is not known why the Singapore woman chose to hang the PRC flag instead of the Singapore flag to celebrate the coming National Day. This is the first instance of such a case being investigated as many foreigners have hung their nation’s flags publicly outside their homes in the past with no action taken against them.

The public display of state flags of nations other than Singapore requires an exception to be granted under the same Act. Those who fail to do so can be subjected to a six-month jail term, be fined up to $500 or both.

    This country is becoming so cosmopoluted that before long, we will find more flags of other countries being hung outside the homes of our new citizens.

    it can be:
    1) one party instructed her to do so, later caught her and let public know that this is actually a singaporean who try to sabotage sg immigrant policy.
    2) anti one instructed her to do it.
    3) she is frustrated about the PRC influx.

    How about sports bar hanging other country’ flag? I don’t think there is anything wrong to hang china flag.

    If the culprit were a PRC, the police will “investigate” and that will be all. Must not risk jeopardizing diplomatic relations mah.

    Since the culprit is a Singaporean, then no need to be “kek kii” and just prosecute and jail. After all, Singaporean mah, so OK to give the full treatment !! Too bad, you’re not a foreign talent!!

    Still need to ask? Kill the chicken to warn the monkeys. Its always the same style. Remember Harry mentioned when S’pore separated from M’sia in 1965 Harry was desperate for economic growth so allow trade with Communist China. When the PRC sailors came ashore in S’pore and started distributing Mao little red book to the locals, Harry admitted he was worried of offending China if he arrested the PRC sailors, so instead he arrested those blur blur local who were given Mao red books!

    Perhaps it is a sarcastic move to tell all Singaporeans that SG now belongs to or is part of China.

    So in the end it was a SINGAPOREAN lady who hang the flag there – how sarcastic. It looks like a set up to spark anti-PRC sentiments.
