No police action taken against Australian ‘FT’ and ex-NTUC director Amy Cheong

The commander of Bedok Police Division, Deputy Assistant Commissioner of Police How Kwang Hwee, said then:
“The Internet may be a convenient medium to express one’s views but members of the public should bear in mind that they are no less accountable for their actions online.”
However, when an Australian ‘FT’ Amy Cheong made similar racist remarks on her Facebook, the police appears to be slow to act.
A police report was lodged against Cheong on Sunday, but she was not arrested promptly which gave her time to leave for Australia two days later.
This is not the first time that foreigners were let off the hook by the Singapore police for posting racist remarks. Last year, PRC student Wang Peng Fei was allowed to leave for China after making racist remarks in a home-made video three days earlier.
Another PRC deliveryman from Shandong was also allowed to leave after making derogatory remarks about a certain race in Singapore.
NO foreigners have been arrested or charged so far for making racist remarks against Singaporeans and disrupting social harmony in Singapore as of today.
