Former NTUC director Amy Cheong is an Australian citizen

Cheong, who was sacked by NTUC, has since returned to Perth, Australia where she reportedly owns a bungalow.
In an interview with the state media, she claimed that she left Singapore because of ‘threats’ received by her and her family. She also revealed that she was a Malaysian who studied in Australia before relocating to Singapore to work ten years ago.
One irate netizen asked NTUC why a foreigner was given such a high position in the organization:
“She is suppose to drive membership here right? She is born in msia raised up in Australia..what does she know about ntuc that non of the locals know? Why wasn’t this job given to a local in the first place?”
Given Cheong’s exalted status as a ‘foreign talent’, it is highly unlikely that the police will take action against her, especially now that she has left Singapore probably for good.
