Great Eastern suspends employee Nicholas Lim following public outcry over NUS’ handling of sexual offence

Earlier this evening (22 April), local insurance giant Great Eastern has made the decision to suspend their financial advisor with Advisors’ Clique, Nicholas Lim Jun Kai, for being involved in a voyeuristic scandal recently.

“We are aware of the recent incident involving Nicholas Lim, a Great Eastern financial representative. He has been placed on immediate suspension and has since submitted his resignation. Great Eastern strongly disapproves of any inappropriate conduct by our financial representatives and will not hesitate to take the necessary action”, Great Eastern stated in a Facebook post.

Mr Lim was an undergraduate at the National University Singapore (NUS) who was caught red-handed filming a fellow student, Monica Baey, in the shower on 5 November last year.

According to Ms Baey, Mr Lim was given a 12-month conditional stern warning by the police after a two-month investigation. He was also suspended for a semester, asked to write an apology letter, and sent for mandatory counselling.

After Ms Baey revealed his identity and act in a series of InstaStories that went viral, a petition on Change.org, created by Wayne Wee, demanded Mr Lim’s expulsion and it has generated over 30,000 signature so far.

Meanwhile, local urban farm OnHand Agrarian announced in a statement yesterday (21 April) that it would cease all liaison with NUS due to their handling of this sexual harassment case.
