NCMP Dennis Tan wants to question the Defence Minister on what punishments were meted out to the SAF officers who were found to be negligent in PTE Dominique Sarron Lee’s case.
PTE Lee had died due to an allergic reaction in a training exercise after a platoon commander threw six smoke grenades, even though regulations specified no more than two grenades were to have been used.
Writing in his Facebook the Workers’ Party member said:
“I have filed a question in Parliament to the Minister for Defence asking about the punishments that were given to the two officers who were involved in the case of Pte Dominique Sarron Lee. I still do not know the date of the Parliament sitting when my question will be answered.”Follow us on Social Media
