Gee I guess it is the sign of the times. You cannot set an MP on fire even if you're crazy. ...and you cannot tell MM Lee that you love him by writing on the wall of parliament house. This time the act was committed by another unemployed man - a certain Mr. Koh Chan Meng. I wonder if they become insane before or after they become unemployed. Not sure if this feller is an ex-taxi driver.
It was reported that they sent this person for a psychiatric assessment - I say save the money lah. Anyone crazy enough to vandalise the parliament house has to be out of his mind.
IT WAS not the first time Koh Chan Meng had defaced a wall at Parliament House. . Yesterday, the court heard how prior to being caught red-handed scribbling :“Hi, Harry Lee I love you” on Wednesday, he had allegedly written on it twice before. . The unemployed 47-year-old was slapped with three counts of vandalism, and accused of scribbling on the wall outside Parliament House at North Bridge Road twice on Tuesday and once on Wednesday. . He allegedly wrote :“Go sue me Lee Kuan Yew Go Gavin Son” at about 1.50pm on Tuesday. Later, at 6.35pm, he wrote :“Shammugan can you play your own orgams”. . The following day, at 1.30pm, he wrote :“Hi Harry Lee I love you” and was detained by Cisco guards. . In reply to queries from Today as to why Mr Koh was :not spotted by Parliament guards during the two incidents on the first day, and — since there was a security camera at the spot — if the police had already been alerted to the incident and were already in the process of investigating when he was caught, a police spokesman said it was inappropriate to comment as the matter was now in court. . Mr Koh has been remanded for a psychiatric assessment and will return to court on Jan 29. If convicted, he faces a fine of up to $2,000 and a jail term of up to three years for each charge. He also faces at least three strokes of the cane. ANSLEY NG
