Thomas Poh Heng Chua who criticised dead Traffic Police Officer Nadzrie Matin in social media, has closed his Facebook account after coming under intense attack from netizens for his unkind remarks.

Staff Sergeant Nadzrie was fatally injured in an accident along 260 Serangoon Road on 1 June. Commissioner of Police Hoong Wee Teck described Staff Sergeant Nadzrie as a “dedicated and well-liked officer”, in extending his condolences to his family.

Thomas was livid because the officer had once issued him a ticket for bad driving.

Netizens who responded to him chided him for his unkind remarks and said that he must have been driving badly to get the ticket in the first place.

Minister of Home Affairs, Mr K Shanmugam, in describing the Officer as a true son of Singapore said: “he was such a good officer and also a role model for his teammates. Courageous, and charged with a strong sense of justice. He saw it as his duty to serve a bigger purpose than just himself.”Follow us on Social Media
