According to the Straits Times report “Health-care workers must ‘uphold values of respect’: Health Ministry” (Jan 10) – “Public health-care professionals, both local and foreign, are expected to uphold values of respect, professionalism, integrity and social responsibility, said the Health Ministry (MOH).”
Got “respect” for Roy Ngerng?
Where was “respect” in the sacking of Roy Ngerng when one of the reasons cited for his sacking was his defamation suit when the hearing had not even commenced yet?
Got “professionalism” in the way Roy Ngerng was sacked?
Where was the “professionalism” in giving Roy Ngerng just hours to leave his job, without any prior notice?
Got “integrity” – no fairness and natural justice?
Where was the “integrity” in not giving Roy Ngerng any opportunity to defend himself against the allegations made against him? Where was the principle of fairness and natural justice in the case of Roy Ngerng?
“Social responsibility” in employing 80% foreigners?
Where is “social responsibility” if it is true that about 80 per cent of the employees are non-Singaporeans (work permits, S-pass, employment pass, PRs, foreign spouses on letter of consent, foreign interns, trainees, etc)?
Hypocrisy and double standards?
Don’t you feel that MOH’s statement reeks of hypocrisy and double standards?
