Woman fined for refusing to surrender roast geese at Changi Airport.Yes the Singapore airport authorities adhere to high standards and enforced the law faithfully. Same exemplary attitude was once also applied to a drug trafficker in transit.
I was really thinking about the geese, I can understand that drugs are not allowed but geese?!
1. If the women have eaten and carried them in her stomach, it would be alright.
2. It is biologically IMPOSSIBLE for roasted duck to carry the bird flu virus. It impossible for any virus to survive even light cooking. Anyway thousands of people carry eaten duck/chicken meat in the stomach cross into Singapore.
3. The law states : "Beef, mutton, pork and poultry in any form cannot be brought in from Malaysia, Thailand, China, Indonesia and India - licence and a permit are required before importing meat and meat products into Singapore". Yeah but the woman was bringing in 2 geese....IMPORTING 2 geese, wow that woman heck of an importer of geese.
4. "She refused to hand the geese over and threw them on the floor instead". If anyone is subject to such a law, he should be forgiven if he does the same. Sir, you're not allowed to bring the meat you have eaten into Singapore, please vomit it before entering Singapore.
Yes, we should have sentenced this woman to death, by trafficking 2 roast geese, that might carry the bird flu virus, she could have destroyed many lives and families. Why did they let her off so lightly by fining her $3000?!
================================================================== Woman fined for refusing to surrender roast geese at Changi
SINGAPORE : A woman was fined $3,000 for trying to bring in two roast geese from China, and refusing to hand them over to the authorities.The Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority said Tan Chai Peng was stopped at Changi Airport's Terminal 2 on September 30 and told to surrender the birds for disposal because she did not have a licence to bring them in.
She refused to hand the geese over and threw them on the floor instead.
She was fined $3,000 for obstructing Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) officers in the execution of their duties.
And another charge of importing two roast geese from China was also taken into consideration in sentencing. Under Singapore laws, a licence and a permit are required before importing meat and meat products into Singapore. Travellers are allowed to bring in small quantities of meat for personal consumption, but this must be limited to 5 kilogrammes per person and come from a country approved by the AVA. Beef, mutton, pork and poultry in any form cannot be brought in from Malaysia, Thailand, China, Indonesia and India. - CNA
