A Singapore man has shared on social media that he was rebuffed by a man claiming to be a National Environment Agency (NEA) staff when he tried to alert the agency to a case of public urination.
The man, Facebook user Raj Singh, claimed to have seen two migrant workers who were allegedly drunk urinating in public last Sunday around 7pm. Concerned, since the area was a walkway frequented by women and children, Singh says he shouted at the workers to move off.
The next day, Singh apparently approached the workers’ construction site to inform the foreman of the matter, only to be told off. Singh then says that he contacted the NEA to alert them about this issue, along with another issue of mosquito breeding due to demolition works in the area.
This is where the story gets interesting – shortly after Singh allegedly made the complaint on NEA’s website, a man by the name of Stephen Sundarah apparently contacted Singh on his mobile phone even though Singh did not give him his mobile phone number.
Sundarah, who apparently claimed to be an NEA staff, allegedly informed Singh that he would be visiting Singh’s home to check about the matter. When Singh apparently informed him that the incident occurred at a worksite, Sundarah allegedly insisted that a “construction site will NEVER have mosquito or people pissing in public”, according to Singh.
Sharing the matter online, Singh asked: “If this is the case- if I report a fire at a location, does the fire department come to my house rather than the location? Or if I spot a crime being committed, police comes to check my house rather than catch the criminals?”
The Independent has reached out to NEA for comment. We will update this story when they respond.

In case you cannot read the post above:
“Stupidity hits a new low.
“Sunday night I caught 2 workers getting drunk, they pulled down their pants and peed in public at 7plus pm. Along a walkway where women, children and people walk. Obvious I shouted at them to pack up and get lost.
“The next day I told their construction site thinking they could do a briefing to inform their workers what not to do in public. I got told off by their foreman. Ok
“I called up National Environment Agency for 2 issues- urinating in public spaces where people walk (rats urine affects people, surely human urine is worse) and the increase in mosquito breeding due to the demolition works.
“Instead of checking on their site and listening to my feedback- a guy by the name of Stephen “Sundarah”- called my mobile claiming to be from NEA and instead of checking on the construction site insisted on coming to my house to check.
I told him about the construction site – and he said construction site will NEVER have mosquito or people pissing in public.
“NEA first- I don’t know if his stephen is a NEA person or from the construction site. Heard of PDPA?? Did I give you my number to pass around?
“NEA- I don’t give a fish if your officers are friends with the consruction people or if they think they can bully someone. Try me.
“NEA- Do your job. Do you think construction sites don’t have mosquitos or even water ponding. Asking the wrong person.
“If this is the case- if I report a fire at a location, does the fire department come to my house rather than the location? Or if I spot a crime being committed, police comes to check my house rather than catch the criminals?”Follow us on Social Media
