According to court documents, Tey first had sex with Darrine Koh on 24 July 2010. He appeared to be pleased with the ‘session’ as he solicited sex from her again four days later. The exact time and place of the sexual encounters was not revealed.

Darrine Ko was from Raffles Junior College and was on the Dean’s List in 2009. Her friends and ex-schoolmates described her as pretty, trendy and outgoing.

Posted by temasektimes on July 27, 2012

The relentless influx of foreigners into Singapore in the last few years has changed the island state’s demographics to beyond recognition.

According to the latest statistics from the Manpower Ministry, 38 percent of Singapore’s population are foreigners, including PRs:

The figure does not include new citizens which means that the number of foreign-born residents living in Singapore could be potentially be more than 40 percent.

Prices of HDB resale flats continue to climb with record $440,000 paid for three-room flat

Posted by temasektimes on July 27, 2012

Despite a slew of cooling measures introduced by the Singapore government, the prices of HDB resale flats continue to sky-rocket, pricing many ordinary Singaporeans out of the market which is becoming dominated by cash-rich permanent residents comprising about 20 percent of the buyers.

According to latest figures from HDB, the Resale Price Index (RPI) in the second quarter of this year is 194, an increase of 1.3 per cent over the previous quarter when it was 191.6.

There were 7,000 resale transactions in the second quarter, an increase of 19 per cent compared to the first quarter when there were 5,900 cases.

Meanwhile, a record high S$440,000 was paid for a three-room flat in Central Town. For 4-room flat, it was S$638,000 in Queenstown. S$750,500 was the highest median resale price for a 5-room flat in Bukit Merah Town. As for an executive flat, it was S$680,000 in Serangoon Town.

The prices of HDB resale flats have more than doubled in the last five years fueled by the relentless influx of immigrants amidst a limited supply of new flats being built.

Singapore is probably the ONLY country in the entire world which allows PRs to buy public housing. Furthermore, there are no capital gain taxes imposed on sale of their flats after they leave Singapore for good.

NUS Law Prof charged with obtaining sexual favors from student Darinne Ko Wen Hui

Posted by temasektimes on July 27, 2012

National University of Singapore (NUS) associate professor from the Law Faculty Tey Tsun Hang has been charged in court over the sex-for-grades case this morning.

The 41 year old faces six corruption charges for allegedly showing favour to his student, Darinne Ko Wen Hui (pic below), between May 2010 and July 2010.

According to court documents obtained by the media, Tey reportedly gave Darinne better grades in return for sex on two occasions.

Tey also received a Mont Blanc pen worth S$740 and tailor-made shirts from Darinne who paid one of Tey’s bills amounting to almost S$1,300.

Despite Darinne being the one who approached Tey to offer sex in exchange for better grades, she has not been charged for any offences yet.

The 23 year old is currently working as a pupil in an established local law firm, thanks to the ‘A’ grade she obtained in her final year elective in exchange for the sexual services she provided to her law professor who now faces the unsavory prospect of being thrown into jail.

In an email sent out to the media on Friday morning, Tey said he stands by his academic principles and that he has always pursued his academic writing in good faith, with no ill intent.

Dear friends and members of the media profession,

I will appear at Court 26 of the Subordinate Courts of Singapore at 9am today (27 July 2012), facing six charges of corruption – two of which involve sexual gratification; all of which are about showing favour in my assessment of a recently-graduated female student’s academic performance.

I stand by my academic principles. I have always pursued my academic writing in good faith, with no ill intent.

The bail is set at a phenomenal sum of S$100,000.

I remain, yours faithfully, as ever

TEY Tsun Hang

Tharman declares: More ‘support’ has been given to lower income group by govt

Posted by temasektimes on July 27, 2012

The Singapore government has been channeling more ‘support’ to the lower income group for the last few days to ensure opportunities for social mobility, declared Deputy Prime Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam.

Speaking on the topic of “Governing for an Inclusive Society” at a forum organised by the Institute of Policy Studies, Mr Tharman stressed that Singapore must “avoid the stagnation of median wages, improve opportunities for social mobility and place more intervention strategies upstream.”

He added that Singapore has developed a ‘progressive’ system where more support is now channelled to the lower end of society despite the lowering of income tax rates and higher tax on goods and services.

“If you look at what has happened in the past decade, despite the lower income tax rates and our higher GST rate, our fiscal system has become more progressive not less,” Mr Tharman said.

He also claimed that the lower income group now receive more ‘transfers’ from the government compared to the taxes they pay, compared to 10 years ago.

“More transfers to the lower income group now, compared to 10 years ago, and we have been able to achieve it without a significant increase. In fact with a minimal increase in net taxes paid by the middle class, and that I feel needs to remain a distinctive feature of our fiscal system, try to avoid to increase the burden of the middle class.”

Singaporean chides PM Lee: Majority of us don’t agree with your policies at all

Posted by temasektimes on July 27, 2012

PM Lee, I think the majority of Singaporeans don’t agreed with your policies at all. All of us come from different backgrounds, be it young, middle aged, elderly so in fact your population growth had a huge impact on all segments of our lives.

There are few things a government should never get it wrong despite less perfect policies and one of them are JOBS. Expensive Housing we can rent a flat, downgrade.

Poor Transport system we can walk, wake up early and etc. If a person lost his job and there are so many competition, he does not have much options. When you increase the population, did you consider and understand the term ‘structural unemployment’ within our society. It’s not so simple as upgrade and learn new skills, the implications that come with structural unemployment goes way beyond what you can imagine.

To put it simple, what happens when there are less jobs and the mobility of your workers are no longer there. Example, last time we have 5 applicants for a job vacancy. Now we have 30 applicants for a job, you think Singaporeans will not be marginalized.

Do you see the impact now? When you increase population, you always keep a close track of the no. of applicants for a job especially when there is a downturn.

DAVID HAN

The rich in Singapore grows wealthier as income gap continues to widen

Posted by temasektimes on July 27, 2012

Even as ordinary Singaporeans continue to struggle to make a living daily under the twin scourges of rampant inflation and stagnant wages, the rich in Singapore is growing wealthier as the income gap between the rich and the poor widens.

According to Forbes Asia, Singapore’s 40 richest are now collectively worth US$59.4 billion (S$74.5 billion), up 9 per cent compared with the previous year.

There are eight newcomers to this year’s Singapore’s 40 Richest list, including a number of overseas-born wealthy individuals who have recently taken up residence in Singapore, such as 30-year-old Facebook co-founder, Eduardo Saverin (pic left), who is ranked eighth, with a net worth of US$2.2 billion.

Another newcomer, India-born Singaporean citizen Bhupendra Kumar, the owner of Spice Group, is ranked number 23 with US$755 million.

The relentless inflow of cash-rich foreigners into Singapore with no control whatsoever is widely blamed for the sky-rocketing property prices which have priced Singaporeans out of reach of the market.

Singapore has the highest income disparity among the thirty most developed economies in the world after Hong Kong.

PAP Town Councils to increase ‘service and conservancy’ charges

Posted by temasektimes on July 27, 2012

Seven town councils run by the PAP will increase their Service and Conservancy Charges (S&CC) for flats, shops/offices and market/cooked food stalls from September 2012 due to ‘higher’ operating costs.

The town councils are Bishan-Toa Payoh, Chua Chu Kang, East Coast, Holland-Bukit Panjang, Tanjong Pagar, Tampines and West Coast.

Holland-Bukit Panjang Town Council claimed that the town councils are facing increased costs especially in electricity, maintenance and cleaning.

The increase will be phased over two years to ‘help’ residents cope with the change.
