‘We are sorry’, say families of couple who tortured tenant
« on: December 02, 2017, 02:17:09 pm »
SINGAPORE — The families of the couple who abused their tenant for eight months to her death on Friday (Dec 1) apologised to the family of the victim, and pleaded for the public not to launch personal attacks against them.

Pua Hak Chuan, 38, and his wife Tan Hui Zhen, 33, were handed jail sentences of 14 years, and 16.5 years, respectively. Pua also received 14 strokes of the cane. The couple had pleaded guilty on Monday to causing grievous hurt to Annie Ee Yu Lian, 26, leading to her death.

Tan's eldest brother, who declined to give his full name, said: "We really owe an apology to (Ee's) family … and would like to do so."

Speaking to reporters after the judgement was delivered, he added: "Those who are responsible for the acts have been punished already. We (the families) are fully agreeable that they should be punished for what they have done."

I'm wondering how many such "silent" or "invisible" victims such as Annie out there in Singapore? ....

Singaporeans should search their souls to become a society that looks out for each other and such down-trodden members in our midst instead of turning a blind eye .... look around your neighbourhood....

That's truly the goal of an inclusive society instead of pursuing lame support of LGBTQ lifestyle advocacy ....

Let's all Do Good ... Do Together!
