于2016年1月26日,14岁青少年林俊辉被发现在自己住家楼下身亡。在此之前,星期二早上有5名便衣警察到他的学校把他带走回返警察局问话。警方人员是要他协助调查有关有人举报他涉及一起侮辱一名11岁女孩子的性骚扰事件。在警方进行审讯期间,警方拒绝了林俊辉母亲与孩子见面。(详情请浏览这个网址read more)

为了尝试获得更多有关这起事件的情况,TOC与2016年1月29日写信给警方寻求他们对这起事件的反应。TOC的信是写给了副助理警监连锦桦AC Lian Ghim Hua和副警察总监DAC Chong Zunjie的。

于2016年1月30日,TOC再一次通过电子邮件询问警方有关这起事件。这次是附上了致给警察总监的副本。TOC仍然未获得警方的任何回复。

于2016年2月5日,TOC把相同内容的询问信件寄给了不同的通讯和警察总监。在询问信里附上了警方的声明里提到5位警方便衣人员到林俊辉的学校的情况。. (请浏览这个网址read more).至今为止,警方仍然对此事件保持沉默。

于2016年2月5日同一天,TOC也同时通过电子邮件致函给内政部长三木根,询问有关林俊辉的事件。TOC询问他对此事件是否有任何置评,或者协助回答已经向警方,但警方拒绝回答的问题。为此,从邮件发出之日至今,内政部长三木根也同样的没有回应。

TOC向警方和内政部长提出的是那些问题呢?为什么他们不愿意回答呢?假设您有兴趣请看如下:

一、 林俊辉涉嫌的案件是不是被定性为紧急案件,无法安排林俊辉在监护人陪同下到警察局问话?

二、 警方到学校带走涉嫌案件的学生是不是警方的正常措施/

三、 在孩子尚未获得被判决有罪之前,警方是否认为(到学校)逮捕孩子的行为可能造成孩子在声誉和形象上无可挽回的影响?

四、 据TOC所知的情况是,林俊辉在警方期间是没有监护人在场的。同时,他的母亲也被拒绝获准接见孩子直到警方审问完毕。

新加坡于1995年10月2日加入了联合国《儿童权利公约》。警方是否依据此公约的第2部分(B)第40款约定下所阐述的程序处理此事件。

五、 警方是否获得授权到这所学校逮捕这名学生?假设没有获得授权,警方是不是擅自主张在学校上课期间到学校逮捕这名学生?

六、 警方是不是会想孩子的家长或者社会大众公布有关孩子死亡事件的调查报告?

七、 孩子的父母是否为此有权投诉警方到学校逮捕孩子的行为?

On 26 January, fourteen-year-old Benjamin Lim Jun Hui was found dead at the base of a HDB flat where he lived. Prior to that, five plainclothes police officers showed up at Benjamin’s school on Tuesday morning and took him away for questioning for allegedly outraging the modesty of an 11-year-old girl. Benjamin’s mother was denied access to him for the whole duration of police interview. (read more)

In its attempt to learn more about the incident, The Online Citizen (TOC) wrote to the police on 29 January to seek response on the incident. Receipents include commander and deputy commander, AC Lian Ghim Hua and DAC Chong Zunjie. TOC did not receive any reply from the police.

On 30 January, another query was made again to the police, this time with the Police Commissioner being copied in the mail. But alas, no reply from the police again.

On 5th February, the same query was sent to the different agencies and police commissioner, along with the question of the police’s statement about the plain clothes police officers. (read more). Still, the police remained silent on the issue till today.

On the same day, TOC also wrote to Minister of Home Affairs, K Shanmugam about Benjamin’s case and asked if he had anything to comment or to help with the questions that the police have refused to answer. Similar to the police, Mr K Shanmugam has not given a reply since the mail was sent. Mr K Shanmugam is also the Minister of Law.

What are the questions that the Singapore Police Force and Minister of Home Affairs so unwilling to reply? See below if you’re interested to know.
________________________________________

1) Was the offense deemed urgent enough not to schedule an interview with the boy in question along with his guardian with the police?

2) Was it standard police protocol to visit schools for suspects who are students?

3) Given that it has not been judged that the boy was guilty of his offence, does the police feel that the arrest of the boy could create unreversible damage to his reputation and image?

4) TOC understands that the boy was interviewed by the police without the presence of his guardian, and the mother was denied access to the boy until the investigation is over.
Singapore acceded to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) on 2 October 1995 and under section 2(b) of article 40 of CRC. Does the police procedure, especially in the mentioned case, follow the points as stated in the CRC?

5) Would the police officer who gave the orders to arrest the boy at the school be named? If not, does the police force take ownership of the orders to carry out the arrest of the boy at school during school hours.

6) Would the police release the details of the investigation into the boy’s death to the public or to his parents?

7) Does the parent of the boy have any means to file a complaint against the actions of the police?
