Shopkeeper beaten for parking illegally ‘booked’ by someone else

P1000216 editedOn 11th July 2012, a press conference was held in YB Teresa Kok’s office in Kuchai Lama with regard to the lack of parking space in Overseas Union Garden (OUG). Mr. Yeo Kwi Seng joined the press conference together with YB Teresa Kok. 
Mr. Yeo informed the press that he is a shopkeeper in OUG but have been having trouble looking for parking everyday when he goes to work, due to the lack of parking space available around OUG. The problem is exacerbated by some unscrupulous people, who ‘book’ the parking spots located in Jalan Hujan, OUG. Instead of renting the parking space legally with DBKL, these parking spots were ‘booked’ by placing boxes so that others cannot park on these spots. 

Since Mr. Yeo has had trouble finding parking when he gets to work, there are times when Mr. Yeo park his car illegally on spaces not allocated for parking. This resulted in Mr. Yeo receiving compounds from DBKL. Sick of receiving compounds from DBKL, Mr. Yeo had on 10th of June 2013 removed the boxes from one of the parking spots ‘booked’ by others by placement of boxes. Mr. Yeo then proceeded to park his car on said parking spot. Once his car was parked, a man believed to have booked said parking space, came and demanded Mr. Yeo to remove his car from the parking spot. When Mr. Yeo refused to do so, the man attacked Mr. Yeo. As a result, Mr. Yeo suffered injuries to his right hand.
