Warriors Football Club was also penalised for failing to notify a licensing officer about the employment of four security officers, mistakenly thinking that it was enough to notify the S-League. A representative for the club pleaded guilty on Tuesday to seven charges, mostly under the Employment Act, with another 127 charges taken into consideration. Separately, 28 individuals, aged between 23 and 72, are also assisting with investigations for allegedly breaching safe distancing measures. The court heard that the club owed salaries of between S$11,995 and about S$20,255 to five players in the proceeded charges: Behe Jonathan Henri Desire William, Ignatius Ang Yu Heng, Muhammad Fadhil Noh, Poh Yi Feng and Yeo Hai Ngee. For the recall to happen, more than 25 per cent of eligible voters in the two districts - or 58,756 votes - would have to be in favour of removing Mr Lim from his seat, but there were only 54,813"yes" votes. Warriors FC also owed more than S$33,200 in salary to coach Lee Bee Seng. Videos of the incident show six police vehicles parked along a coffee shop in Geylang Road. The salaries were owed to them in November or December 2019, but the club failed to pay them. However, the woman claims the company failed to find a suitable date from its extensive pool of clients.
In total, including charges taken into consideration, the club did not pay more than S$300,000 in salaries to 35 employees. Chinese newspaper Shin Min Daily News reported on Sunday that a few police officers were seen at the second storey of the shophouse, above the coffee shop, and two police officers were seen standing at the staircase leading to the second storey. He first faced cries for his recall in July last year, when Taiwan went into its first ever semi-lockdown due to a series of local Covid-19 transmissions, with Wanhua district being one of the hotspots. A Ministry of Manpower officer carried out investigations in May 2019 after receiving information on the matter. The club has since made full restitution to its employees. More On This Topic. EMPLOYMENT OF SECURITY OFFICERS Separately, the club had hired four security officers on an ad hoc basis to conduct bag checks and a pre-admission security sweep at Jalan Besar Stadium on Mar 18, 2016, before a match against Albirex Niigata Singapore Football Club. Mr Lim is the second legislator to face a recall vote in less than three months. It was a requirement to implement enhanced security measures for matches, and this was communicated to the club by the operations director of the S-League in March 2016. - Advertisement 2- It was reported that the man on her first date was earning less than her salary, amounting to an annual salary in increments of less than S$100.
The four security officers were trained and licensed, but the club failed to notify the licensing officer under the Private Security Industry Act of their employment. The club notified only the S-League, in the"mistaken belief that this sufficed for legal purposes", court documents said. Prof Wang cites the 2017 amendment of Taiwan's election laws that lowered the bar for a recall vote to happen. A compliance management and audit officer with the Police Licensing & Regulatory Department lodged a report in May 2016 against the club and later sent a letter to Warriors FC, offering to compound the offences for S$4,000 to be paid within 14 days. However, the general manager of the club wrote an appeal letter, seeking a waiver. The department rejected the appeal and reiterated the composition offer with payment to be made by Apr 25, 2019. The election to fill his empty seat was also held on Sunday, in which the DPP's Lin Ching-yi ran against Mr Chen's former competitor Yen Kuan-heng and won. According to the woman, it wasn’t easy to schedule dates with the agency’s consultant.
The club did not respond and did not make payment by that date. Lawyer Azri Imran Tan of IRB Law asked for a fine of S$20,000 to be paid in instalments. He said the club is"the most successful football club in Singapore history", winning the S-League a record nine times and"lifting the Singapore Cup on four occasions". "It looks like swing voters have been unhappy with the Yen family for a long time," said a netizen on Taiwan's Reddit equivalent, PTT, while others suggested that people were displeased with the city government's decision to reroute a metro line to avoid using Mr Yen's family land. The club began encountering financial difficulties in September 2018, he said, adding that it had a net capital deficit of around S$1.1 million. - Advertisement 3-.
The club was later directed to sit out the 2020 Singapore Premier League season and missed the following season as well, but"continues to soldier on". Mr Tan said it was financial issues that led to the offences in the first place, and that these worsened due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The club"is not here to make excuses for its conduct" and has done its best to rectify matters, including making full restitution to its staff, said Mr Tan. "What the club hopes to impress upon this honourable court today, however, is that the outcome of today’s proceedings affects the future of the club and the football community in Singapore as a whole," he added. "The club is far more than a corporate entity, it is an institution of Singapore football and hopes to continue being a bastion of local football in the years to come.
" The judge allowed the club to pay its fine in instalments by May 2023. Source: CNA/ll(gs) .
