SCDF files report against five NSFs for leaking photo of Bionix accident

SINGAPORE — The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) has filed a police report against five of its full-time National Servicemen (NSFs) for taking and circulating a photo of an accident scene involving a Bionix vehicle that resulted in the death of Singapore Armed Forces Corporal First Class (CFC) Liu Kai last Saturday (Nov 3). The photo, which has been widely circulated on social media and messaging apps, shows a Bionix vehicle on top of a crushed Land Rover at an SAF training ground. The Bionix armoured vehicle reversed into the Land Rover that CFC Liu was in. The accident happened during a field training exercise at the Jalan Murai Training Area, near Lim Chu Kang. The SCDF said that based on its preliminary investigations, two of its NSFs who had responded to the vehicular accident had taken the unauthorised photos of the accident scene and “sent the photos to some of their fellow NSFs via a WhatsApp chat group”. Three of them subsequently forwarded the photo to their friends. In a statement on Friday, the SCDF said it “takes a serious view of the matter and has filed a police report against the five NSFs for their unauthorised actions”. There is at least one other photo of the incident that has made its rounds on social media. The Ministry of Defence (Mindef) said that investigations into the leaked photos are ongoing. “All personnel provided access to SAF training grounds are subject to the restrictions placed on unauthorised photography or videography,” said Mindef. It added: “Offenders will be prosecuted to ensure that these strict rules to guard our security are not compromised.”
