PRC ‘FT’ arrested for attempting suicide in front of Chinese Embassy after losing $40,000 at the casinos

Posted by temasektimes on August 9, 2012

A PRC ‘FT’ Wang Qingtao has been arrested for attempting suicide in front of the Chinese Embassy after losing S$40,000 at the casinos:

Wang has been working at Keppel shipyard for the past five years. He told the state media that he lost a total of $40,000 of his salary at the casinos and still owe $5,000 to his colleagues.

Despite the gravity of his offence, he was not charged and was only given a warning letter by the police after being released from detention.

Keppel Corporation has since terminated Wang’s contract and sent him home to China.

    He’s still a human after all regardless he’s from China or not.

    Didn’t your teachers taught u people to love others just like u want others to love u?

    they are pushing the limits of human decency – their antics here are too many to name. like their country overthere, can take laws into their own hands, this is Singapore, the authorities should show a firmer hand to these rubbish imports.

  15. Singaporean said

    Yeah, sending him back to China is the best decision, ever. Ban him from SG forever

  16. enough said

    the best part is if he succeeded then his funeral expenses will be borne by singaporeans and his folks will take back to china

    heaps of cash to build a mansion in china , just like the girl murdered in pasir panjang wholesale market

    To that chao at tiong
    Thank you for contributing to our ‘national income’ 🙂
    ok, U can go & die now, why the fork should we care?

  22. What the fuck is wrong with suicide? Why the fuck is it illegal here? Such an outdated law should be abolished. It is a violation of individual freedom, and the effects would be worse off on the person.
