Rich foreigner gets away with fine, elderly poor sentenced to 7 weeks’ jail
#1
Singaporean Teo Seng Tiong was convicted for “committing a rash act endangering human life”, and sentenced to 7 weeks jail and a S$500 fine for “failing to report to the police within 24 hours of the accident”. He was banned for driving for 2 years.

The rich foreigner, 35-year-old Eric Cheung Ho Yu, was let off with only a S$2,800 fine for “committing mischief”.

The Singaporean poor who has since lost his fisherman job and now taking odd jobs, was represented by a pro bono lawyer. The Singapore public prosecutor asked for a 10 weeks’ jail, 3 year driving ban and a fine.

The Singapore court also tried to justify the harsher punishments on the Singaporean by reading out Teo Sent Tiong’s criminal records, which are unrelated to the court case.

The perpetrator who kills someone faces a murder charge and may be sentenced to death, but a neglinent driver only faces a few weeks in jail and a small fine. The one who kills somebody on the roads are just let off with is a slap on the wrist. The judge is sending a wrong signal to potential culprits........

In the 1990s, Teo was convicted of voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means, committing an obscene act and causing affray. 

He was convicted again in 2007 and 2012 for insulting the modesty of a woman and voluntarily causing hurt respectively.

The court also heard that he has had a string of traffic convictions between 1999 and 2015.

They include failing to give way to approaching vehicles, speeding by exceeding the speed limit by 31km/h to 40km/h, careless driving, and failing to conform to a red-light signal.

Court ruled that his actions are premediated and deliberate to bang into the cyclist.

Traffic incidents ruled as unintentional and accidental tend to have lighter sentences.

The video evidence supports that the lorry deliberately banged the cyclist. But the cyclist DESERVES it!

To the fking court, FREE THE DRIVER!!
