Four men aged 17 to 37 will be charged in court today (15 October) for distributing obscene materials on a Telegram chat group called “SG Nasi Lemak”.
In a statement, the Singapore Police Force (SPF) said that they had received several reports between 15 Mar and 3 October against a chat group for circulating obscene materials and promoting vice activities. Investigations by the Ang Mo Kio Police Division uncovered the identities of the men behind this chat group who were subsequently arrested at various locations around the island on 14 October.
It was found that two men, aged 26 and 37, were the administrators behind the chat group while two teenagers aged 17 and 19 were the distributors of the obscene materials.
The police found over 10 electronic devices including a CPU, laptop, hard disk, and several mobile phones which were seized as case exhibits.
If convicted, the men could be imprisoned for up to three months, fined, or both.
The police have advised members of the public to stop soliciting or joining lewd websites or illicit chat groups.
“The Police takes a serious view of anyone involved in criminal activities and will continue to take tough enforcement actions against those breaking the law,” said SPF.
On 4 October when the police first announced its investigation of the “SG Nasi Lemak” group, Chinese daily Lianhe Wanbao reported that there had been more than 44,000 members when the group was still active.
Lianhe Wanbao also reported that the group has been up for more than a year but membership has spiked in recent months. There is also apparently an entry fee of S$30 for those wanting to join the group.
According to Today in their report of the arrests (15 October), several women have reported finding photos of them on the SG Nasi Lemak chat group.

苏利亚恳求批准提积蓄救妻 失望公积金局转移话题

针对印裔丈夫苏利亚为救妻子,申请转移自己的普通和特别户头存款遭拒,中央公积金局在上周五(12日)和卫生部发表联合声明作出回应。 文告中公积金局解释,自2017年,患有卵巢癌的莎若吉妮,选择在伊丽莎白私人医院和百汇癌症中心(PCC)寻求治疗。百汇癌症中心和国大医院告知莎若吉妮夫妇,她的癌况近末期已无法治愈。 “莎若吉妮选择继续在私立、无津贴的百汇癌症中心接受治疗, 她的终身健保到目前为止为她支付六万元医疗和住院费用。而加上她的私人保险,保险至今为她支付了30万元,涵盖了她在百汇和伊丽莎白医院90巴仙的医疗费。” 公积金局续解释莎若吉妮获得的保障,指自2017年10月,莎若吉妮可从乐龄健保每月领取1100元,至今累积2万3000元,得以为他们减轻财务负担。从该局允准的保险配套,迄今为止为她支付了51万新元,而从他们夫妇俩的公积金户口共提取了3万4000元。 未解释为何拒绝苏利亚提普通、特别户头救妻 但值得注意的是,尽管公积金局尝试解释苏利亚夫妇透过公积金储蓄、私人保险等承担医疗费用,但却未解释,为何不允许苏利亚提取其个人公积金特别和普通户头,转移到妻子的健保储蓄,让莎若吉妮能积蓄抗癌。 公积金局的此番回应,也导致网民质疑苏利亚夫妇,既然知道私人医院无津贴,为何莎若吉妮仍坚持在私人医院治疗,而且认为他们已经得到终身健保等医保配套的照顾。其中网民MIke Ng也质疑,此前的访谈短片,就如同只是单方面说法。 苏利亚:只有伊丽莎白医院有一线生机 对此,莎若吉妮的丈夫苏利亚,不得不在公积金局脸书回应,呼吁那些指责他和妻子的经历是假新闻的,不要太快下定论,“如人饮水,冷暖自知,我们也有证据证明,国大医院教授建议与其让内子接受治疗,应该要陪着她去走走看看。对此,当我申请提取我的普通户头存款时,也有反映给公积金局。” 他说,只有伊丽莎白医院给予莎若吉妮一线生机,而他不算富有,也没有要求群众捐款,而他最后的希望只能祈求公积金局让他把钱提出来。但结果一些网民们都在对他冷言冷语。…
