Illegal Immigrant Overstayed In Singapore Uncaught For 12 Years?
I am referring to this particular news report:
Homesick china overstayer dies one day after surrender
I feel sorry for the Zhang family. It is such a tragedy to them. However, what surprised me is
HE overstayed in Singapore for 12 long years and then found himself in a dilemma.
Madam Hong said she came to Singapore on a social visit pass in 2003, and stayed on illegally to work as a cleaner.
‘I wanted to spend more time with him because we had been apart for so long,’ she said.
She returned home four years later to take care of her children, but not before she spent 21 days in jail here as an overstayer.
Holy shit! 12 years and 4 years? I thought Singapore government and authority are very strict and efficient in this area? Should I compliment the late Mr Zhang for being so good at hiding? Or should I condemn the relevant authority for being complacent? Maybe they are only good at catching those standing along Geylang lorong selling their bodies.
