The saga between Changi Airport Group (CAG) chairman and his former domestic helper has caused an uproar on social media.
Netizens have made their way onto the Facebook page of Changi Airport itself, bombarding the comments section of the page with angry comments against Liew Mun Leong, chairman of CAG.
In 2019, Parti Liyani, 46 was found guilty after her former employers accused her of stealing over $34,000 worth of items from the household after a four-year long legal battle. She served her jail sentence of two years and two months before appealing for her case.
On Friday, Justice Chan Seng Onn overturned the convictions in the High Court after Ms Liyani appealed her case.
The high court took into consideration that the Liew family had “improper motives” and took steps to prevent Miss Liyani from lodging a complaint to the Ministry of Manpower for illegal deployment.
Since the case made the news all across Singapore, netizens have rallied behind Miss Liyani, providing words of support and comfort to her. A fundraiser, which was set up for Miss Liyani, has also gathered over $28,000.
However, citizens have taken matters into their own hands and have turned to the Changi Airport Facebook page to express their unhappiness towards the Liew family.
Comments such as “Your chairman must resign!” can be seen on the comments section of a post on Changi Luxury Shopping Concierge filled with statements not related to fashion.
The statements are also visible in multiple posts on the Facebook page, including a giveaway contest and an inspiring story regarding the Changi Foundation philanthropic arm.
Law and Home Affairs Minister K Shanmugam has also made his statement, citing that the government agencies will look into what had “gone wrong in the chain of events” that has caused Ms Liyani to be sent to jail for something she has not done.
