Singapore law enforcement officers surprised question about the verification of foreign delegates

41
Journalists literally threw questions at the leadership of Singapore’s law enforcement agencies in connection with the methods of inspecting members of foreign delegations. Recall that on the air of the federal channels were shown footage of how representatives of the Singapore security services checked the presidential aide Yury Ushakov, carefully examining his jacket and trousers to find "dangerous items and substances." So did the other delegates.


Singapore law enforcement officers surprised question about the verification of foreign delegates


Then it was stated that President Vladimir Putin (“like everyone else”) had to pass through the turnstile. In separate media, it was stated that he allegedly passed through the metal detector frame, which was finally denied by the press secretary of the head of state Dmitry Peskov.

For reference: Vladimir Putin makes a three-day visit to Singapore, where several summits take place at once, including the ASEAN summit.

Singapore law enforcement agencies with genuine bewilderment responded to questions about the verification. The answer is one: this is the law.

According to the laws of this country, from the point of view of security, there is absolutely no difference whether it is a question of an ordinary citizen or a representative of the authorities, including a foreign state. This is the norm, which, as they say, reinforced concrete entered into the practice of the work of law enforcement officers of Singapore.

In this regard, one can learn from Asian New York, as Singapore is often called. When everyone is really equal before the law: from a spreader of water to a president - it is worthy of respect.

Singapore laws are harsh, but it is thanks to them and the attitude to these laws of the population and the state, in a country that was a mosquito outback several decades ago, order was put in place: in the economy, in politics, and in society.

To understand - several Singaporean laws, or rather, prohibitive measures: threw garbage on the sidewalk - Singaporean 2000 fine (almost 100 thousand rubles!), Drunk driving - fine (for the first time) to Singapore's 5000 (245 thousand). rubles), feed wild birds - a Singaporean 500 fine, watering flowers with water remaining in a saucer or flower pot - a 500 SGD fine (otherwise mosquitoes will be divorced).

Tens of thousands of surveillance cameras are following. They are everywhere. At the same time, it does not occur to anyone in Singapore to declare it a violation of human rights or a violation of personal freedom.

    Of course, Singapore has made significant strides in strengthening the well-being of citizens, in the economy, in state building, and in the fight against corruption.
    Here are just a few "buts".
    1. The area of ​​this state is 684 square meters. km not 684 thousand, but just 684 square kilometers. There is one city - Singapore. This fact makes any comparison with the USA or the Russian Federation pointless.
    2. Since the time of Britain's abandonment of the colonies, and Singapore's "independence" in 1965, the key to the successful development of Singapore were 2 unshakable rules: not a single communist in power, loyalty to the former metropolis. He did not acquire independence, just the form of influence on the colony was changed.
    For example, British troops were withdrawn only in 1971, and even then, not without the help of Israel.

    For all that, Singapore is a very wealthy city-state. It is the world's largest port, by such an indicator as the tonnage of cargo per day. With this in mind, as well as a small territory, not only cameras, plasma panels, you can hang everything up - there would be a desire.

      You should not mention such a political system so arbitrarily. Communist - this was a very vague concept before. Today - even more so. In China, millions of communists are in power, and the pace of development today is no worse than that of Singapore. And China today is intercepting many of Singapore's businesses. So this argument is from your propaganda baggage.
      In Singapore, the pragmatists (they are technocrats) were and are in power. This is the key to its socio-economic development. And that's all. The same can be observed today in China. This is completely absent today in Russia, where "seasoned" capitalists are in power.

        You should not mention such a political system so arbitrarily. Communist - this was a very vague concept before.


        These are not my arbitrary words, but a literal translation of the popular slogan of Lee Kuan Yew, the creator of the "Economic Miracle" of Singapore. On the whole, he managed to do this "without the communists" (in an active struggle against them, and by all available means, up to and including persecution for political reasons).

        So my propaganda baggage has nothing to do with it. My personal attitude towards the communist is very ambivalent and multidimensional, not least depending on the country in which they are trying to promote their ideas, but this is a topic for another, separate discussion.

        Once again, just on the basis of territory, comparing Singapore with China or Russia is stupid. The similar transformations and reforms in these countries are disproportionate in terms of labor costs.

        As for propaganda - today we hear a lot about Chinese, Singaporean, Arab (UAE), American (during the four FDR terms) economic miracles, but we forget about the Soviet one, when, in the context of global sanctions and essentially the absence of normal diplomatic relations with half of the world (if not with most of it) we have gone from a plow to a nuclear bomb. This path of ours was also under the actual leadership of one particular person, but his difficulties, taking into account the external and internal situation, were incommensurate with any of the phenomena that many today call "economic miracles."

          And how. Your personal attitude got out even here. The sixties communist ideas are one thing. The communist ideas of the nineties are completely different. Communist ideas today are something even more different, unlike the first two. The sixties communists can not be compared with the eighties communists (Putin, Chubais, Gaidar and others), and even more so can not be compared with the Communists of Pope Zyu.
          Lee Kuan Yew chose the country's most pragmatic development plan. He emphasized a market economy, declared the country's anti-communist development (very sensible and pragmatic at that time), and plannedly began to develop the economy and plan social policy.
          I have never been a communist (!). And your anti-communism takes you in the wrong direction. In Singapore, any extraneous ideology that could threaten the current state system will now be pursued. Any, and not only communist.
          The transformations and reforms that are identical in spirit in these countries are disproportionate in terms of labor costs.
          I do not know what you are talking about, what you are comparing and measuring. The USSR (and Russia as well) paid a huge price for enormous progress, both economic and social. And now Russia is "profiting" these achievements, of which there are so many that it still cannot "profuse" them. And we also "lost our economic miracle". This is what we are talking about. If the people of Russia want to someday end their current constant lag behind the leading countries, then they need to change their socio-economic policy, and for this it is desirable to change the current Yeltsin-Putin government for pragmatists and technocrats in a peaceful constitutional way. But the government itself is unlikely to want this.
          Today we must not fight with the Communists. They stayed there in 60's. Forget about the communists. It is no coincidence that they are now actively fighting with them in Ukraine. The result is obvious.

            Reading the response to the comment with quotes from my calculations, I get the feeling that someone is very bad with the Russian language, and this someone is clearly not me.

            And how. Your personal attitude got out even here. The sixties communist ideas are one thing. The communist ideas of the nineties are completely different. Communist ideas today are something even more different, unlike the first two. The sixties communists can not be compared with the eighties communists (Putin, Chubais, Gaidar and others), and even more so can not be compared with the Communists of Pope Zyu.


            And what was I talking about? - that everywhere everything is different for everyone. A comparison of this is a topic for a separate discussion, which has little connection with Singapore, and therefore did not begin to develop the topic.

            And your anti-communism takes you in the wrong direction.


            - from the same series. I am not an anti-communist as such. I believe that, on the whole, the transformations and the standard of living achieved under Leonid Brezhnev in the USSR, or the level of economic development in modern communist China deserve respect. While communism as a result is utopia. Also, in principle, as democracy, in the degree of utopianism.
            But I, since my views so haunt you - a convinced monarchist. With all the consequences. And the closer the Russian government system is to an absolute monarchy, the better for the Russian Federation. Yes, the thesis is debatable, but according to my beliefs, such a development option will be the best.
            To those who call themselves Communists in the Russian Federation (Communist Party) as a party, I feel extremely bad. A number of presidential elections showed the full degree of corruption of the leadership of the Communist Party. Further, without details.

            I do not know what you are talking about, with which you are comparing and measuring. The USSR (including Russia) paid a huge price for the huge progress, both economic and social.


            - see a couple of lines above: Chinese, Singaporean, Arabian (UAE), American (four times FDR terms) economic miracles. And our significantly greater efforts in creating our miracle, I just emphasized.

            And now Russia is "profiting" these achievements, of which there are so many that it still cannot "profuse" them. And we also "lost our economic miracle". That's what we're talking about ...


            How these calculations relate to the provisions of the article and the information in my commentary is a mystery. This is a separate topic for research, which I don’t want to discuss with you on this platform, and in principle. Here it is out of place, but in principle - meaningless. What happens when, since the times of the USSR, "everything is only plundered and nothing is done" we see in Ukraine. Compare with RF. Hope you can see the difference.

            Instead of a resume. To separate the USSR and the Russian Federation in relation to them is stupidity. These two states are Our Motherland. To love one thing and to hate and find fault with another is to put it mildly sheer myopia. If all "Soviet" people also loved and also treated the Russian Federation, as they declare their attitude to the USSR, the state of affairs would be much better. But for some reason, many prefer to moan and complain about life, remembering how good it was before. Time cannot be returned, and it will not be good either, and with such approaches it is only more difficult to achieve good in the future. It is strange that it is not obvious.

              Dear Faceless, you are a convinced monarchist (according to your statement, and that did not surprise me at all. "Say something, and I will tell you who you are."). This is enough to end the discussion. You and I are incapable of perceiving each other's beliefs. In Russia today it is practically a monarchy. So enjoy the reality. More semblance of a monarchy in Russia is highly unlikely. This concludes. hi

    I never understood these groans of admiration for such historical glitches like Singapore. They pumped up the town with money, moved the corporate headquarters there, and forced the local Aborigines to go around. And should we all take this as an example to follow?
    Forgive me, of course, but the fine for leaving in a platter of water ... is a complete idiocy and mockery. And no one will convince me otherwise.

    There are many "jokes" of this kind in Singapore. Well, for example, "chewing gum" is forbidden - for them a monstrous shtaf, it is forbidden to collect leaves and branches - police can cling to them - like you plucked them, forbidden, forbidden, forbidden .... yes, everything is forbidden, even to publicly express feelings. But there is another, full of so-called servants from the "ledy-boys" - in the evening on the "horchad-alley" full of them in cafes like "talk", yeah. Koshakov love - they are there in authority - well-fed and not frightened - such an animal lives in every cafe-eatery and entertains the public-visitors in the evenings. It's also cool how they repair roads - surround the repair site with sound-absorbing screens and industrial vacuum cleaners - so that there is no noise and dust, I saw a policeman approach such a place with screens and measure decibels with a device. Cars at a construction site do not drive on the ground, but on a special mesh-covering so that nothing sticks to the wheels and anyway, at the exit, the wheels are washed or blown with compressed air. But the same taxis sometimes drive so broken and dirty (both outside and inside) that you just wonder ... Well, everything is expensive there, just fucking expensive ... The electronics were not very expensive, and that was only in the markets (in multi-storey buildings) and Chinese consumer goods, brands are also expensive, there is nowhere to go ... Well, there are very good museums of old English forts ...
