Swiss consultant charged for vandalising train: Oliver Fricker was charged in court with breaking into a Singapore MRT depot along Xilin Avenue and spray-painting graffiti on a train. The offence was not immediately detected and the train plied its route in full view of commuters. Fricker was with a Briton identified as Lloyd Dane Alexander when he broke into the MRT depot. Alexander has left Singapore before the police report was filed.

The video taken by one of the commuters can be found on YouTube.

A Swiss business consultant was charged in court Saturday with breaking into a Singapore MRT depot and spray-painting graffiti on a train. Oliver Fricker, 32, was accused of committing trespass and vandalism in mid-May, and a district judge who described him as a flight risk set bail at $100,000. His passport was also impounded.

A worried-looking Fricker told the judge he needed a lawyer and asked that bail be lowered to US$40,000. But the judge cut him short and rejected the bail request, stressing the seriousness of the offence.

A police spokesman described Fricker as a company consultant but further details on him were not available from Singapore officials or Swiss diplomats. A man named Oliver Fricker is listed in the business networking website Xing as a senior consultant in Singapore working with a Zurich-based information technology firm specialising in the financial sector.

An American teenager, Michael Fay, garnered global headlines in 1994 when he was jailed and caned in Singapore after he was found guilty of vandalising several cars. Fay was caned despite a US appeal for clemency.

The graffiti had the words 'McKoy Banos'. [photo via]

  1. i think it is very nice! :)

  2. Maybe they should've hired him to 'vandalize' the singpost letter boxes instead of those disgusting and ugly doodles of nothingness. He shouldn't have vandalized though... 不亏是 'fine' city.
