Former DSTA engineer fined S$4000 for laptop theft – TODAYonline

Lee Kian Heng was expecting to graduate from his bachelor course in a few years’ time

SINGAPORE — A former staff at the Defence Science and Technology Agency (DSTA) was fined S$ 4,000 today (April 2) for stealing his colleague’s laptop.

Lee Kian Heng, a former senior associate engineer at DSTA, committed the offence in September last year at about 6.45pm, where he swiped his then-colleague’s laptop from the Depot Road office.

The court, which heard in mitigation that Lee was expecting to graduate from his Bachelor’s course in a few years’ time, pointed out that the mitigation had not specified the reason behind the offence.

When asked, however, his lawyer, Mr Louis Joseph described it as a “very silly act”.

He also explained that Lee himself does not understand why he decided to steal the laptop.

Mr Joseph added that his client stole the item for personal use in a “moment of unbelievable stupidity”.

The maximum penalty for theft is a jail term of three years and a fine. CHANNEL NEWSASIA
