View Full Version : Does it take RAPE for MPSJ to budge?

07-04-2004, 05:26 PM
I refer to my earlier posting entitled Crime in SS14. Despite my letter coming in the Letters to the Editor column in the Star paper, the MPSJ has not budged at all. And I have written to Lee Hwa Beng but still no reply from him.

The least Hwa Beng can do is write a note to me telling me he is looking into the matter.

Recently, a girl got assaulted in the same playground/padang but managed to escape.

Does it take a RAPE case to make the MPSJ budge? It seems an ideal place for a potential rape to happen. I think the anti-RAPE lobbying should look into making public areas brightly lit.

I happen to visit a friend of mine in SS4 yesterday and to my surprise, I saw a similar playground so brightly lit up. MPPJ is really very efficient.

Does anyone here know whether Hwa Beng looks into all complaints or does he only pick one or two here and there and attend to them and puts it on his website?

Hi:) - Orchi has got the handphone number of Mr. Yap Yun Fatt - Councilor of MPSJ, 012 286 6339. You might have to lodge a complaint officially to obtain a 'complaint log' number from MPSJ, before any official complaint can be looked into by MPSJ.

That was how Orchi happens to get things 'going' on one issue of collapsed wall in USJ 2. Maybe it might just do something positive about your problem there at SS14.:(

Unfortunately, sometimes it has to take a tragedy to occur before the authorities and municipalities concerned takes action or "whatever you want to call it" to make changes. More often than not, it always the case of "it won't happen to my family or loved ones, so why bother..."
The recent case of the student that was killed in NS is an example where nothing changes until a tragic case occurs, only then the authorities does the mad dash to rectify the situation. Classic case of what we would call as "knee-jerk!" reaction!

Alexius, better log onto www.jeffooi.com which reported that this supposed "death" was a mistake on the part of ST S'pore.

Opss... the NS was meant as Negeri Sembilan as in the incident where the student was killed in Seremban ....
