Taking vengeance against his critic, PAP candidate Shawn Huang Wei Zhong, an air force major, published the details of an ex-colleague who criticised his behaviour at the NDP 2018.
The SAF officer is now facing disciplinary actions for criticising the PAP candidate and she was “internally-POFMA-ed” and forced by her SAF superiors to take down her Facebook post.
Formerly known as Shawn Ingkiriwang, the PAP candidate for Jurong GRC told his supporters the full name and rank of his critic – which he identified as an active SAF Warrant Officer Leo Lin. PAP supporters are now harassing the warrant officer and calling for the SAF to fire her.
The PAP candidate claimed that the Warrant Officer was making life difficult for him, the Parade Commander and a higher-ranked Major, by refusing to issue him a freshly-prepared lunch box that he claimed meant to go into the bin “in the next 30 minutes or so”:
“Usually there would be rations left over and they would have to be disposed in the next 30mins or so. However, the WO in charge would not issue me a set of rations. I tried to reason it out with the WO that the rations would otherwise be disposed anyway. However, the WO insisted, and I decided that rather than pursuing it further I decided to leave the tent and went elsewhere to ask for a pack of food.”
The PAP candidate said he found food at another tent, but did not explain why he returned to the same tent where he later threw the lunch box at the NSFs. Shawn Huang denied throwing the lunch box, and claimed he did it “politely”:
“I found another pack of ration that was leftover. After my lunch. I went back to the tent. And on the table, I found that there was now a pack of food. I told the WO that I no longer needed the ration and politely passed the ration back.”
PAP candidate Shaw Ingkiriwang Huang then claimed that he was unable to respond to the Warrant Officer because she deleted her post:
“I tried to respond to her on the post so as to clarify matters but she has since removed her post. I wish her well and hope to be able to speak to her soon.”
