Job Listing For KDL Elements Needed Someone With ‘Connections’ To China, Vietnam & Malaysia
Recently, it was found that the lady involved in a recent conflict with a police officer at the Singapore General Hospital (SGH) was in the country to work as a hostess instead of a clerk at a company called KDL Elements as per her work permit applications.
She has since been sentenced to five weeks and five days’ jail for, among other things, making false declarations in her work permit application.
Following the discovery, MS News found a job listing for a “Performing Artiste Assistant Manager” that seems to be from the same company.
They were apparently looking for someone who had active connections to China, Malaysia, and Vietnam. On top of that, they also require the hire to be able to travel regularly to these countries.
However, they no longer appear to be accepting applications for the position.

“Verbal and written communication skills in English, Chinese and Vietnamese would be an advantage,” they said.
On top of that, they also require the hire to be able to travel regularly to those countries.
Woman in viral SGH dispute permanently banned from working in Singapore
On Wednesday (25 Oct), 29-year-old Han Feizi pleaded guilty to five charges, including making false declarations in her work permit application.
She was the woman who had a now-viral exchange with a police officer at SGH earlier this month.
For her offences, the Court handed Han a jail sentence of five weeks and five days.
Additionally, the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) also revoked her work pass, and permanently banned her from working in Singapore.
This was because she had declared in her work permit application that she was going to work as a clerk with KDL Elements, but never worked a day as a clerk there.
Instead, she worked as a freelance hostess.
It is unclear if others like Han are or were doing the same, whether with KDL Elements or other companies.
