Former RP candidate Alex Tan Zhixiang under police investigation for intentional harassment of SBS Transit
Posted by temasektimes on August 30, 2012
Former Reform Party candidate Alex Tan Zhixiang has been called up by Tanglin Police Division for questioning after a Magistrate Complaint was lodged against him, for using multiple instances of F* word in an open complaint letter addressed to SBS Transit commenting on the overcrowding and infrequent bus services.
In an expletive-filled letter titled ‘Fxxk You SBS’, Alex Tan described his hallowing early morning experience on a SBS bus where he was deducted a full fare for alighting from the front door of an overcrowded bus.
The letter was addressed to the Transport Minister as well as other government agencies.
In an article posted on his blog, Alex Tan wrote he ‘appreciate’ the Singapore Police for referring the case to the Magistrate and he believe the authorities will come to a ‘trusted decision’.
Two years ago, a PRC family of five ‘hijacked’ SBS Transit bus number 138 for FIVE hours after the bus captain refused to allow them to bring up a wheelchair.
Though the police was called, nobody was arrested and SBS Transit eventually paid for a maxi-cab to ferry the PRC family home. No subsequent police reports were lodged against them for ‘intentional harassment’.
