 林俊辉家人

14岁青少年林俊辉于2106年1月26日在警方进行3小时多盘问,在母亲保释下获释回家后又接到学校通知决定不让他参与学校常年的中三露营活动后,从家里的窗口跳楼身亡!

林俊辉在被警方带离学校时,手上是拿了一块面包和一包水。在警方盘问的三小时多点时间里,警方并没有提供食物和饮料给林俊辉。这是他临死前的最后一餐!

我们已经发表了TOC网站对林俊辉家属的采访。
见《人民呼声论坛》:《(中英文对照)哪个政府部门应该为这起人神共愤的事件承担全部、不可推卸的法律责任!?》

以下是林俊辉的家长给社会各界有关事件的始末!

14岁跳楼身亡青少年林俊辉家人致给社会各界的公开信

 

在这个艰难沉痛的时刻,林俊辉的家人在此向所有表达同情与慰问的朋友、亲戚们和社会各界表示诚挚的谢意。

关于林俊辉的逝世,媒体出现了几个不同版本的报道。对於2016年1月26日的悲剧,我们要澄清一些事实,以及提供一些讯息来厘清事件的始末。

林俊辉的母亲于2016年1月26日早上,接到孩子用自己手机打来的电话。一名警员在电话里告诉她,林俊辉正在协助警方调查一起在2016年1月25日下午发生,涉及一名11岁华族女生被非礼的案件。警员告诉她,将带林俊辉回宏茂桥警署做进一步的调查。林俊辉的母亲要求再与儿子通话,虽然孩子接过了电话,却因为手机后来被警员拿走而无法继续通话。警员在电话告诉她,当天下午林俊辉能获准离开警署的时候,将会通知她。

林俊辉的母亲和姐姐随即赶到学校。他们大约是在早上11点抵达学校的。抵达时,林俊辉已经被警方人员带走。他们俩见了学校的训育主任和辅导老师。训育主任和辅导老师告诉他们俩,林俊辉是被警方人员带到宏茂桥警署协助调查的。当他们俩进一步询问有关详情时,训育主任和辅导老师只是说,他们是通过闭路视频录像确认了林俊辉是出现在一栋政府组屋的电梯入口处。

在同一天的下午约1点整,林俊辉的母亲接到一通从宏茂桥警察区总部打来电话。对方告诉她,林俊辉已经正式被逮捕了。家人可以到(宏茂桥警察区总部)警署为他办理担保手续。他们立即赶到(宏茂桥警察区总部)警署。到达后,警署人员通知他们在接待处等候。过了一会儿,一名警官带了他的母亲进入审讯室记录有关声明。当林俊辉最后被警察带出来与母亲及姐姐见面时已经大约下午2点50分了。

林俊辉的母亲注意到孩子显得极其安静,在他离开警察署时,他的手感到不舒服的冰冷。母亲问他有关被指控非礼的事。孩子否认。当母亲问他为什么向警察承认时,孩子回答说,“他们说我犯法,那就犯法咯”。母亲告诉林俊辉,他假如他没有做过这回事,他不应该向警方承认自己犯法。他们之间的谈话在地铁列车入站时中断了。

列车到站后,林俊辉与母亲及姐姐直接回家。母亲在回家的途中感觉到他比以前安静了许多。这不是他的正常性格。

母亲让他去冲凉并为他准备食物。接着母亲就让在自个儿在餐厅,母亲也没有再向他提起有关他承认被指控的事情了。

大约下午4点13分,林俊辉的母亲接到学校打来的一通电话。学校的辅导老师请她转告林俊辉,学校已经决定取消他参与于2016年1月27日到29日举行的中三露营活动。这是母亲与学校最后一次的谈话。母亲把学校的决定告诉了林俊辉。

过了一会儿,母亲喊了林俊辉。但是,他没有回应。母亲和姐姐就去敲他的房门。房门锁着。这是林俊辉第一次锁着卧室的房门。他们拿了备用钥匙打开房门。然而不见林俊辉在卧室里。他们发现原本放在书桌上的一把电风扇已经移到地上了。卧室的窗口是开着的。他们急忙冲到窗沿边,。他们看到了林俊辉的脸朝下躺在地上不动。

最初的报告说,在林俊辉被5名便衣警察和两辆没有漆上警徽的车带走后,林俊辉的家人收到了警察和学校及时的汇报。

这是一个不确实的说法。

林俊辉的母亲第一次接到警方的通知是在早上时段。当时林俊辉已经被带到校长办公室。警方仅仅是通知她将要带走林俊辉到警察局做进一步的调查。同时,警员告诉她,警方将在下午通知家人当他获准离开警察局的时间。

当母亲和姐姐抵达学校时,学校的训育主任和辅导老师告诉他们,学校是观看了闭路视频录像后确认影像里的是林俊辉,除此之外他们无法再向他们透露其他信息。

家属与警方的另一个接触是在宏茂桥区警察总部。那是在母亲接到有关正式逮捕林俊辉和保释他。

这里有必要注意的是:母亲是被带到一个审讯室(不是公开或者共同办公室)进行录取口供声明,不许她见孩子。

他们在警署里一直等到下午2点50分才见到林俊辉。林俊辉是在被带到接待处的。至此,校方再也没有与家属进行任何接触。

当天下午4点13分,母亲接到校方辅导老师拨来的电话,这是唯一的联系。这通电话是要通知林俊辉他不获准参加学校在月26日与27日举行的露营活动。林俊辉跳楼身亡的悲剧发生在下午4点20分后,他的父亲从当天下午5点到6点之间一直拨电话到学校,但是始终无法与校长通上话。这个情况一直延续到隔天下午,校长回电给林俊辉的父亲,

2016年2月1日,警方安排了一个会议,宏茂桥区警察总部的官员,林俊辉的亲属,国会议员黄国光(Mr. Louis Ng)出席了这个会议。会议期间,警方向家属提供了保密的信息。双方同意,这次会议所讨论的问题及透露的信息必须视为机密,直到调查工作完成为止。

但是。现在有关部门在对外报道和声明却说,

他们将会检讨有关在审问青少年成年人在场的问题。身为林俊辉的父亲,他个人认为这是必要的。但是这一切都来得太迟了。因为我们期望警方对待我们的孩子方式不会发生在其他孩子身上。

林俊辉的父亲认为,

学校不应该在孩子的家属尚未到来之前,在学生休息期间把孩子交给5名警方人员。他感到气愤的是,林俊辉当时心里感受到的恐惧,当他被带走时是那么的无助啊!

一名穿着校服的学生在5名颈上系着警方证件的便衣警察拘押下从校长办公室走向停车场,那怎么可能说是隐蔽呢?我想,这是在令我的孩子感到难堪和受到羞辱。

林俊辉的父亲过后知道,

当时儿子从学校的餐厅被带到校长办公室时一手拿着一片面包、另一手拿着一包水时,他的心都碎了。

我无法理解,

为什么学校的老师或者教职员不能够让我儿子吃完早餐后才带他到校长办公室?他们说,我的儿子被允许吃完早餐才带去警察局的。但是。这是他接受了盘问后的事。我的孩子的最后一餐是在学校的那块冰冷的面包啊!

我借此机会告诉那些与我的儿子在一起的成人们,

即是警方人员、德贤中学的教职员们,我的儿子会选择趁热进食。

在当天2点50分林俊辉警察局时。他告诉母亲与姐姐,警方在3小时多的盘问过程中并没有给他任何食物和饮料。像我的孩子林俊辉这样年龄的小孩,他们的消化力是特快的。即使是一块面包和一包水,我也无法确定,我的儿子在到警察局后面对着压力,当时手上拿着一块面包和一包水是否会吃完。在接受警方进行盘问的数小时严峻的折磨过程中,我的儿子一定感到饥饿和口渴。

林俊辉的父亲说,

他现在要做的是为儿子寻求公道!我们不知道他是否真的非礼一名11岁女孩。在验尸庭开庭前,我们不想猜测这项指控是否是事实!他说,身为孩子的父母,我们不会忘记和原谅他们从学校到拘押到警察局,学校和警员在这段时间,如何对待我的孩子!

我必须向学校当局说,

作为孩子的家长,我们是把孩子托付给你们看管的,你们有责任确保孩子们得到适当的照顾和合理的保护的同时,也要保护孩子们的权益。

我要对警方人员说的是

你们派来5名便衣警员和两辆没有漆上警徽的警车到一所中学已经没有什么秘密可言了。您们的目的就是要在这所中学寻找一名中三的学生。你们不是到这所中学寻找一名具有能力逃跑或者有能力反抗的成年人。

对于林俊辉的朋友和学生军团的同袍们,

我要在此感激你们送来的悼念卡和鼓励的慰问语句给林俊辉三级士官SGT (NPCC)。

对于麦当劳的同事,我要向你们说的是,

他很热爱这份工作和成为你们当中的一份子。假设分店的经理允许的话,请让我们保留他的职员工作证。

最后,我代表家属们,

感激社会各界站出来给予林俊辉的支持。

14岁孩子跳楼事件

The letter from Benjamin’s family in full

林俊辉家人

The family of Benjamin Lim wish to express our deepest gratitude and appreciation to all friends, relatives and members of the public for your kind expression of sympathy in our time of great sorrow.

There have been reports in various publications offering different versions of occurrences leading to the passing of Benjamin. This letter seeks to clarify and also provide certain information on the chain of events leading to the tragedy on 26 January 2016.

In the morning of 26 January 2016, Benjamin’s mother received a call from his mobile number. One police officer spoke to her and informed that Benjamin was being investigated for a case of “outrage of modesty” involving one 11-year-old Chinese girl outside school in the afternoon of 25 January 2016. The officer informed that Benjamin would be taken to Ang Mo Kio police station for further investigation. Benjamin’s mother asked to speak to her son, of which then the phone was given back to Benjamin. However, they (mother and son) did not managed to speak for long before phone was taken away. According to Benjamin’s mother, the officer informed that police will be contacting the family in the afternoon when Benjamin is allowed to leave the police station.

Benjamin’s mother and elder sister then rushed to the school, arrived at about 11am. At that point, Benjamin had already left the school with police officers. They spoke to the discipline master and school counsellor, and were informed that Benjamin was taken to Ang Mo Kio police station to assist in investigation. When asked for details, the staffs were only able to reveal that Benjamin was identified via a CCTV footage captured at the lift lobby in one of the HDB blocks.

On the same day at about 1pm, Benjamin’s mother received a call from Ang Mo Kio Police Division HQ informing that Benjamin was arrested and that family members may proceed to the police station to bail him out. Mother and daughter then rushed to the police station, and were told to wait at the reception area. After some time, one officer led Benjamin’s mother to the investigation office for recording of statement. It was until about 2.50pm when Benjamin was finally brought out to meet his mother and sister.

Benjamin’s mother noted that he appeared quiet, and his hands were uncomfortably cold after they left the police station. She then asked him about the alleged offence, he denied. When asked why he admitted to the police when he did not do it, he said “they said I am guilty, so I am guilty lor”. Benjamin was then told that he should not have admitted to the crime if he did not do it. Their conversation ended then as the train was approaching.

Benjamin, together with mother and sister, they went home directly. Having sensed that Benjamin was rather quiet and not his usual self, the mother got him to shower while she prepared a meal for him. She then left him alone at the dining hall, and made no further query about the offence he was alleged to have committed. It was until about 4.13pm after Benjamin’s mother received a call from the school counsellor to convey the message that the school has decided that Benjamin will not be attending the Secondary Three School Cohort Camp from 27 to 29 January 2016, and that was when they last spoke. Benjamin was told of the decision by the school’s authorities.

After a while, the mother called for Benjamin but there was no answer. Mother and sister then knocked on the bedroom door and realised that it was locked. That was the first time the door was locked. After they managed to enter into the room, there was no sign of Benjamin. One desktop fan which was supposed to be on the table; was on the floor and the window was open. They then rushed to the void deck, and Benjamin was lying motionless on the ground with his head facing down.

It was initially reported that family members had received timely updates from police and school authorities after Benjamin was taken away by five plainclothes police officers in two unmarked police vehicles. This statement was not accurate.

Benjamin’s mother was informed by police officer for the first time in the morning when Benjamin was already taken to the principle’s office. The police officer merely informed her that Benjamin would be taken to Ang Mo Kio police station for further investigation, and that the police will contact the family in the afternoon when he would be allowed to leave.

When the mother and sister arrived at the school, they were told by the discipline master and school counsellor that Benjamin was identified by CCTV footages and that no other information could be revealed.

The next contact with the police was at Ang Mo Kio Police Division HQ, after the mother received a call to inform that Benjamin was arrested and she should bail him out.

It should be noted at this point that the mother was taken to the investigator’s office (open plan office) for statement recording rather than being allowed to see her son.

It was not until 2.50pm before mother and sister finally saw Benjamin after he was brought out to the reception area. Until then, there was no further contact from the school. The only call that the mother received from the school counsellor was at 4.13pm on the same day, which was to inform Benjamin that school authorities decided that he was to be excluded from the Secondary Three School Cohort Camp. After the tragic death of Benjamin at 4.20pm, the father called the school from 5pm to 6pm but was not able to speak to the principal. It was not until the next day afternoon that the principal responded and returned call to Benjamin’s father.

The police arranged a meeting on 1 February 2016 between the officers from Ang Mo Kio Police Division HQ, police headquarter and immediate family members, accompanied by Member of Parliament Mr. Louis Ng. Information was shared within acceptable limits. It was agreed between parties that discussion and information disclosed in the meeting be kept confidential until the investigation has fully completed.

There are now reports and statements from the relevant authorities that procedure will be subjected to review in regard to police questioning of minors without the presence of an adult. As Benjamin’s father, I felt this is necessary, but it came too late. It is necessary because we pray that the same treatment my son received from the police, will never ever happen again to another child.

The school, in my opinion,

should never have handed over my son to five police officers during recess hours without having to wait for the arrival of family members.

I hate to think of the amount of fear he had at that moment, how helpless he was then.

To be escorted to the car park from the principle’s office, one student in uniform accompanied by a few adults in civilian clothes with police ID cards,

how discreet this could be? I felt the embarrassment and the shame my son was subjected to.

As Benjamin’s father,

it broke my heart when I later found out that my son was brought to the principle’s office with one bun on his hand; and a drink on the other from the school canteen.

I cannot understand

why the teacher; or office staff did not allow my son to at least finish his food at the canteen before s/he brought him to the principle’s office. It was reported that my son was allowed to finish his breakfast before being taken to the police station. But that was after the interview. My boy had his last meal in the school, a cold bun.

Those adults that were with him at that moment, the police officers and staffs of Northview Secondary School, may I take this opportunity to tell you that my son would prefer to have his meal when it is hot.

When Benjamin finally left the police station at 2.50pm,

he told his mother and sister that he was not given anything to eat, nothing to drink throughout the 3 or more hours of engagement with police investigators in the police station. At his age, my son gets hungry very fast after one meal. Just a cold bun and a drink, and we cannot be sure if he did finish the bun because he was under pressure then. Benjamin must be feeling hungry, thirsty, throughout the few hours he was with the police investigator. I can imagine the anxiety felt by my son throughout the ordeal.

As Benjamin’s father,

it is now my duty to seek justice for my son. We do not know if he has indeed committed the alleged offence of “outrage of modesty” of the 11-year-old girl. Until the coroner hearing, we do not want to speculate whether the offence has indeed taken place.

That said,

as parents we cannot forget and we cannot forgive the way my son was treated, from the school to the time he was in police custody.

I have this to say to the school authorities.

We as parents we entrusted our children to you. You have a duty to ensure that our children are appropriately taken care of, reasonably protected and have their interest in your priority.

To the police, I have to tell you that

by sending 5 plainclothes officers to one secondary school in 2 unmarked police vehicles are never discreet. You are there to look for one secondary 3 student. You are not there to apprehend an adult suspect with full ability to escape or capable in single combat.

To Benjamin’s friends and team mates from the National Police Cadet Corps,

thank you for the lovely cards and your encouraging words to SGT (NPCC) Benjamin Lim.

To his colleagues from McDonald’s,

he loved his job and he was grateful to be part of the team. If the branch manager would allow, please give your consent for him to keep his staff’s ID card.

Last but not least, on behalf of the family,

I thank everyone for coming forward to show their support to Benjamin.
