The lady who recorded the video reflects:
"I was already in tears when they wanted to take her off the mic to shut her up. I salute her bravery so I decided to hold on to my camera & cried silently praying that she be allowed to finish her speech to the MP."
I dare think most of us are beyond the tearing stage, and fast approaching the precipice of raw anger. How can anyone remain stone cold when the 76 year old spinster, definitely of the Pioneer Generation category, tells of this awful tale at 1:34:
"I was given this letter, telling me that they “hacked” into my personal POSB book, scoured my amounts and took away the money from my bank to give to the property tax. Do you think it is ethical?
Do you think its ethical? Do you think it is right?"
We hope she was wrong, and that Damn Bloody Slow (DBS) bank has a good explanation. Someone else once narrated how money was transferred from his ordinary account to top up his Medisave account, after having incurred some medical expenses, without his authorisation. Maybe this is the stuff of urban legends, but if the people in charge fail to step up to clear the air soon, Singaporeans will no longer trust the government.
