North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said he was impressed by Singapore's economic development and hoped he could learn from the country during a night tour of some of the city state's landmarks, the North's state media said on Tuesday (Jun 12).

Kim said Singapore was "clean and beautiful", while looking at the view on Monday from the observation deck of the Marina Bay Sands hotel, adding that he had learned much about the Southeast Asian nation's economic potential and how it had developed, the official KCNA news agency said.

Kim went on an evening tour, posing with Singapore officials at a tropical garden before visiting an infinity pool atop a landmark waterfront hotel, to the surprise of guests.

Kim arrived in Singapore on Sunday for a historic summit with US President Donald Trump on Tuesday aimed at getting North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons and missiles in exchange for economic incentives and security guarantees.

The young North Korean leader is staying under heavy guard at a city centre hotel and had not appeared in public on Monday until about 9.00pm, when one of his security officials buzzing about the hotel lobby shouted "It's all ready!".

Kim suddenly emerged in his trademark Mao-style suit to walk out to his black limousine, accompanied by his sister, Kim Yo Jong, and aides.

Reuters staff around the city tracked his motorcade, which included bus loads of security personnel and aides, escorted by dozens of Singapore police officers on motorbikes.

His first stop was a park with futuristic, tree-shaped installations, Gardens by the Bay, which also boasts the largest glass greenhouse and tallest indoor waterfall in the world.

He joined Singapore's Foreign Minister Vivian Balakrishnan, who tweeted a selfie with a smiling Kim and Singapore Education Minister Ong Ye Kung, against a backdrop of flowers with the hashtag #Guesswhere.

Kim thanked the Singapore officials for showing him around so late at night, the North's state news agency said on Tuesday.

Kim then stopped at the Marina Bay Sands hotel, which resembles a giant surfboard perched on three tall columns, for a look out over the bright city lights from its rooftop garden and infinity swimming pool.

Singapore was "clean and beautiful", Kim said on the observation deck, adding that he aimed to learn from the knowledge and experience of the southeast Asian nation, as he found it impressive, the official KCNA news agency added.

Surprised guests enjoying the relative cool of the tropical evening took pictures of a waving Kim with their cameraphones.

On the way back to his hotel, Kim walked along a promenade near the Merlion, a giant statue, and fountain, of a mythical creature, half lion, half fish - Singapore's unofficial mascot.
Kim's trip to Singapore is his furthest journey he has made since taking power in late 2011 upon his father's death.

He has made two trips to China since March to meet President Xi Jinping, and held summit talks with South Korean President Moon Jae-in in April and May in the Demilitarised Zone, which separates the two Koreas.

His excursion out of the hotel caused a big stir with guests who were told to get behind a barricade while dozens of North Korean security men and Singapore police officers and government officials blocked off the lobby.

"Oh my God, is Kim Jong Un coming?" shouted one guest, shortly before he appeared to set off for his evening jaunt.

https://sg.news.yahoo.com/man-spiked-flatmates-drink-intention-raping-jailed-caned-060935632.html

Intending to rape his flatmate, Annadurai Prabakaran attempted to drug her first by slipping a “sleeping pill” into her bottle of water.

Fortunately, 21-year-old Manchinella Anuhya spat out the mixture after noticing that that water inside the bottle tasted bitter.

months’ jail along with three strokes of the cane after pleading guilty to one charge of administering a poison to Anuhya with the intent to rape her, and another charge of obstructing justice by attempting to pour away the laced water.

Victim, accused lived in same flat

Prabakaran, who has been in Singapore on an S-Pass for the past seven-and-a-half years, is a tenant in the woman’s flat, which she shares with her uncle and his family. Both the accused and the victim are Indian nationals.

According to the prosecution, Prabakaran began having thoughts of having sex with Anuhya on 8 December last year. He did not believe she would consent to sex as the two had not spoken to one another before.

“He thus planned to drug her and have sexual intercourse with her while she was asleep,” said Deputy Public Prosecutor Rachel Tan.

The next day, Prabakaran took a bus to Geylang where he visited a makeshift roadside stall and asked its owner if he sold sleeping pills. He bought two pills for $2, one to test and the other to give to Anuhya.

Later that night, he tested one pill and found that it successfully dissolved into water without colouring it. “(Prabakaran) then waited for an opportune moment to administer the remaining pill to (Anuhya),” said the DPP.

The moment came on 12 December last year after Prabakaran returned home after work at around 8.30pm. He saw that Anuhya had prepared dinner and was about to eat.

Half an hour later, after showering, he noticed that Anuhya – who was washing dishes – had left her bottle of water unattended at the dining table and took the opportunity to pop one of his pills into the bottle. Prabakaran then went to his room to rest and wait for the pill to take effect.

When Anuhya sipped the water in her bedroom, she found it bitter and spat the water onto the floor. She then suspected that Prabakaran had spiked her water. Fearing for her own safety, she called a family friend, Kantareddy Sreelatha, and told her what happened.

When Sreelatha arrived at the flat with another man Suram Karunakar, Anuhya showed them the bottle, which was half filled with water. Sreelatha observed the water to be cloudy.

When confronted, Prabakaran admitted to lacing the water and pleaded for forgiveness. As Sreelatha, Karunakar and Anuhya were standing outside the flat, Prabakaran grabbed the water bottle and emptied it before dropping it to the floor.

Karunakar then called the police and retrieved the bottle, which still had a bit of liquid in it.

A Health Sciences Authority toxicology report found that the contaminated water contained Sildenafil, which is used to treat male sexual function problems and is not meant for use by women.

Sildenafil is also specified in the Poisons List in the schedule of the Poisons Act. Possible side effects of its usage include headaches, flushing, nasal congestion, nausea, visual disturbances and upper abdominal pain or discomfort.

Tan said that Prabakaran’s act of administering the drug to Anuhya was aggravated as it was “preparatory to the act of rape” and “intended to put her in a vulnerable position”.

The DPP added that the offence was highly premeditated and that it took place in Anuhya’s home, where she was entitled to feel safe.

Lawyer Kalaithasan Karuppaya, who represented Prabakaran, said that his client had started working here as a construction worker and progressed to becoming a temporary driver before finding work as a private hire bus driver.

He said that Prabakaran had to borrow about 500,000 rupees (S$10,000) to facilitate his travel to Singapore and for his elder brother’s wedding, and is about S$20,000 in debt.

Citing his client’s clean record, Kalaithasan said Prabakaran was remorseful about his actions and would not be able to find a job in India easily as he lacked qualifications. He also told the court that his Prabakaran’s elder brother and uncles were in court to speak to him before he was jailed.

For giving a poison to someone with intent to cause hurt or commit other offences, Prabakaran could have been jailed up to 10 years and fined or caned.

https://www.tnp.sg/news/singapore/local-blogger-stands-against-cyber-sexual-harassment-women


Local blogger Brenda Tan, 22, is taking a stand against online sexual predators.

These users frequent social media websites Tumblr and Twitter, as well as messaging platform Telegram. They typically share upskirt pictures, superimpose other people's faces onto nude bodies, or post innocuous photos of women with sexual captions.

Ms Tan is posting links of such Tumblr pages on her blog and encouraging her followers to report them to Tumblr so they can be taken down.

She also details the required evidence to file a police report as well as the contacts of pro bono lawyers who are willing to defend victims for free.

Ms Tan told The New Paper: "This (upskirt photo situation) has been going on for years, and I think it is time to address it. I have received more than 300 messages of gratitude on Instagram since I started this project.

"There is such a victim-shaming culture in Singapore that girls are often afraid to come forward about such offences."
