Indian citizen calls Ramesh a “jackass” and can’t believe he is a Director at JP Morgan

Posted by temasektimes on November 3, 2019

While some Singaporeans have been jumping to the defence of controversial JP Morgan Director Ramesh Erramalli, his behavior is widely condemned by Indian citizens themselves.

Ramesh sparked a massive outcry among Singaporeans when he was caught on video hurling vulgarities at condo security guard for asking his visitors to pay a $10 overnight parking fee.

One Indian citizen calls Ramesh a “jackass” and cannot believe he is an Executive Director of JP Morgan.

He added that he has never heard of Uptron Academy of Computer Learning where Ramesh obtained his Postgraduate Diploma in Computers and Information Management from.

According to his resume, Ramesh first found work in Singapore as a System Administrator with Takada Industries Pte Ltd.

He subsequently attended two courses on Citrix to become a Citrix Certified Administrator which enables him to obtain a position at JP Morgan as a Citrix specialist.

Till today, the Manpower Ministry has yet to clarify if Uptron Academy of Computer Learning is an accredited institution in Singapore.

Condo residents not informed of change of security agency

Posted by temasektimes on November 1, 2019

Contrary to reports by the state media that the change in security agency at 8 Riversuites Residences was a “scheduled one”, many residents claimed they were not informed of the change.

The services of KH Security was terminated after one of its security officers Steven Heng was caught on video being subjected to a torrent of verbal abuse from an Indian born resident Ramesh Erramalli.

Many residents only found out about the change through the estate’s private Facebook group when someone from the estate posted:

“Did the MCST just sack the security company? Saw a new batch of security officers this morning?”

The post drew more than 50 comments from other residents, with most saying they were not informed of the changes.

“Did anybody receive any letter from the MCST informing of the change?” Michael asked.

“I didn’t read about it on the noticeboard. Even the guards are clueless. It appears to be quite abrupt,” another resident added.

Other residents feel sad that the security officers whom they are used to have been replaced by new faces.

One resident Mrs Lim hopes that the media circus will finally end with the change in security agency:

“Hope we won’t see the media camped at the guard house again! This is a condo, not a HDB estate! We deserve some privacy!”

Posted by temasektimes on November 1, 2019

According to reports from the state media, security officers from KH Security Agency where Steven was from had been replaced with those from Alpine Security!

Ramesh was caught in a viral video hurling vulgarities at Steven last week for asking his visitors to pay a $10 parking fee.

He subsequently complained to the condominium management that security has threatened him and uploaded the video on social media without his permission causing him to be harassed by strangers.

He also lodged a police report against the security for doxxing him!

According to insider sources, KH security is investigating the incident and Steven may be sacked if he was found to have uploaded the video and a police report containing Ramesh’s name and hand phone number.

Ex-JPM staff: CECA Director unlikely to be sacked

Posted by temasektimes on October 28, 2019

Despite bringing his company into disrepute by hurling vulgarities publicly at a security guard, J P Morgan is unlikely to sack its Director

According to a former staff of JP Morgan who spoke with us on the condition of anonymity, his contract can only be terminated by the head office in the United States.

Furthermore, he did not commit any criminal offence or unethical behavior during the course of his work.

J P Morgan is not a retail bank and its clients are mostly high net worth foreigners and companies, not Singaporeans. Hence it will not be affected by any boycott by Singaporeans.

In fact, J P Morgan has deleted several messages posted by Singaporeans on its Facebook page about his behavior.

Though it has promised to conduct an internal investigation, He is likely to be given only a slap on.

J P Morgan to investigate CECA Director for hurling vulgarities at security guard

Posted by temasektimes on October 27, 2019

J P Morgan will conduct an internal investigation of its Executive Director when its office opens on Tuesday.

He was filmed on video hurling vulgarities at a Singaporean security officer who asked his visitors to pay a $10 fee for parking their car at his condo car park after 11pm, sparking a massive outcry among Singaporeans.

Speaking to queries from the state media, J P Morgan conformed he is its staff and it is “looking into the matter”. It declined to comment on his remuneration which was rumored to be $66,000 monthly including an allowance of $13,000.

PAP MP Zainal Sapari also weighed in on the controversy calling for the Protection from Harassment Act to be extended to security officers in a post on his Facebook:

Security guard lodged police report against J P Morgan Director

Posted by temasektimes on October 27, 2019

The Singaporean security guard who was subjected to a verbal tirade by J P Morgan Director has lodged a police report against him!

In a video clip widely circulated online, the Director was heard hurling vulgarities at the poor security guard for asking his visitors to pay $10 to park overnight at his condo.

The security guard noted in his report that he was aggressive towards him and he let him park inside the car park without paying eventually to avoid aggravating the matter.

In a press statement released last night, the Association of Certified Security Agencies strongly condemned his behavior and urged the Attorney-General to investigate the matter and press for a deterrent sentence.

However, being an elite CECA banker invited by the pro-foreigner PAP regime to work in Singapore, it is unlikely that the police will take action against him.

On the contrary, the security guard may get arrested and charged under Singapore’s new anti-doxxing law for publishing his personal details online

J P Morgan banker to lodge complaint against security guard to get him sacked!

Posted by temasektimes on October 27, 2019

Controversial Indian banker from J P Morgan who was caught on video ranting at a Singaporean security guard for doing his job will lodge a complaint to the condo’s management to get him sacked!

In a complaint posted on the Facebook page of his condo Eight Riversuite Residences, he falsely accused the security guard of doxxing and threatening him:

“The security was smart to take a video and share it on all social media forums…I have been threatened by the same security which is supposed to protect me.”

He added that he has received more than 200 “threatening calls” so far and he felt “intimidated”.

He was seen gesticulating at the security guard and hurling vulgarities at him several times after he was asked to pay a $10 parking fee for his visitors to park at the condo’s car park after 10pm.

According to his neighbors, he was still fuming mad and vowed to complain to the management office when it opened on Tuesday to get the security guard sacked.

He will also lodge a police report against the security for recording and uploading his personal details on social media without his permission.

As he is a precious foreign talent invited by the PAP regime to work in Singapore under CECA, his complaints will not be unanswered and in all likelihood, the security guard will be investigated under Singapore’s new anti-doxxing law.
