why will a NS defaulter come back at all? He wont even make it to his parents' house from the airport.
Why did Melvin Tan come back after so many years. Why does anybody want to return to the land of their childhood and relatives? Why am I going home in a couple years time after spending 30 years here? Those ties go beyond the notion of nation and are a lot deeper. A lot come as close as JB and have the rellies come over there, but again, it's not the same is it.
I guess home is where it is closer to your heart. Our children will not feel the difference since unlike myself, they are brought up overseas , the parents where we are brought up in a different place and at different times.
Koala Bear, I guess you are Sger or ex-Sger whatever. The point I want to make is there are many things that were done by the Gahmen not reported or shown in the media. You forget one thing, the Gahmen controls the media and other single bit in the country. They will let you know if they want you to know or make a lesson for other would be. I believe you have been going thru the internet looking for other parent offenders that had been criminalised by the system. Sad to say, you will get none unless it is permitted by the Gahmen. I wish I can name afew but I cannot as this is not permited under the privacy act.
The system is already in place, why gamble on something that you are not certain of on the outcome.
Those that fall through the cracks are the very lucky ones. I serve 6 in camp during my reservist time. After that I deferred continously due to my work overseas until I reached 40. All the protocol were in order. When I return home on one of those short break from overseas, I was stopped at ICA border control at the airport. My exit permit and passport where taken away. Two CMPB staff served me there and then with a notice to report to reservist training within 14 days !!
I am a high ranking officer officer in the army and they do not give a damn who you are.
I was told politely served the in-camp and you can reapply your exit permit. Mind you this just a simple case, NOT even Parent Harbouring Defaulters.
Why do you want to keep on looking for loophole or whatever that you are wanting to know when you know the answer is obvious.
