    Default SIA Leading Steward arrested for smuggling in 1.6kg of Heroin in Sydney

    SINGAPORE: A Singapore Airlines (SIA) cabin crew member was arrested last Sunday at Sydney International Airport after he allegedly tried to bring in 1.6kg of heroin.

    Nicholas Tan Ngat Liang, 50, was a leading steward who was believed to be on duty during the flight from Singapore to Sydney.

    In response to TODAY's queries, a spokesperson from the Australian Federal Police confirmed that a 50-year-old Singaporean was arrested on Sunday and has been charged with "importing a commercial quantity of a border controlled drug, namely heroin". "The man was arrested for attempting to import 1.6kg of heroin into Australia," the spokesperson said.

    In Australia, the offence carries a maximum penalty of life imprisonment and/or an A$825,000 fine (S$1.1 million). Tan's case was first mentioned in a New South Wales court on Monday.

    Responding to TODAY's queries, SIA spokesman Nicholas Ionides said: "We can confirm that a member of our cabin crew was detained recently in Sydney by the police. As it is a police matter, it would not be appropriate for us to provide further comment."

    A spokesperson from Singapore's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that the ministry has so far not received any request to extend its assistance on the matter.

    When this reporter visited Tan's condo in Simei on Friday, a man and a woman who answered the door declined to comment, saying that it was "not the right time".

    The Singapore Police Force said that cabin crew members and pilots are "subjected to the same level of checks as departing passengers prior to boarding the aircraft". It added: "The authorities conduct screening on persons and their hand-carry baggage. Checked baggage is also subjected to screening upon check-in at the departure hall."

    An SIA flight steward, who wanted to be known only as Mr Lim, said that at Sydney International Airport, random checks - which occur about "50 per cent of the time" - are conducted on cabin crew after their flights touch down.

    According to the Australian Federal Police website, there were 332 seizures involving heroin between 2009 and May 31, 2010.

    There have been previous reported cases of Singaporeans who were caught in Australia's airports for trying to bring in drugs. In August 2009, a Singaporean man was sentenced to a jail term of 11 years and three months for importing 4.3kg of heroin from Kuala Lumpur. The drug was concealed in food items. - TODAY

    Wonder if he got into this business resulting from casino losses. Unlikely first time smuggle tiok liak. I notice one can be let off with just a fine for this offence. No mandatory incarceration though 99% of the time, it is masuk.

    If it is just a fine, all he need to do is to sell off his Simei condo.

    I'm more curious about where he got the drugs from Singapore? Isn't it stupid to route it through Singapore?

    Yes, unlikely first time. I noticed that Australian immigration is very strict when dealing with Asian passengers. Last 3 times when I was there, insisted on dragging me to do the radiation test. KNN...

    Good question bro. I have no idea too.

    Many drug smugglers and their bosses choose the S'pore route for a simple reason. They believe Customs overseas are more 'relax' when plane with passengers are flying in from S'pore.

    In the case reported, I doubt it was a random check. Far more likely through intelligence or tip-off. Almost always the case.

    Possibly from colleagues who are fed-up. Anyone recall the case of the SIA and MAS pilots who got caught within weeks of each other for child porn in their PCs.

    The guy definitely done it before and got away with it. That's why this time he dared to transport 1.6kg.

    You have to blame the Viet bastards for creating trouble in Australia, creating a bad reputation for the rest of us Asians.

    Please lah. Just because the white Aussie despises you as a gook, you want to put the blame on the Viets?

    So now you are blaming Viets for the white Aussie's racism?

    I see that the Pinkerton runs deep within your veins.....

    Yes not the first time. You need to have some 'experience' to be trusted with 1.6kilos.

    don't believe too much of this crap that Custom take it easy when you fly in from Singapore. This is just a myth by SPF that they are very good.

    When the Custom pulls a passenger for inspection, he does not know where the passenger comes from.

    A 50-year-old Singapore Airlines cabin crew member arrested in Sydney for drug trafficking was charged in an Australian court last week.

    That was confirmed by the Australian Federal Police yesterday.
