The Singapore Scout Association (SSA) has cleared a former volunteer scout leader at Bukit Panjang Government High School, Mr Ang Lian Kwee (above), of allegations of abusing his position in harassing female volunteer leaders.
But it found Mr Ang’s conduct "unbecoming of a HQ volunteer leader" and terminated his membership in April this year, the SSA told The New Paper in an e-mail response to queries.
One parent, Mr L. W. Tan, 58, whose daughter is a Scout in Yuan Ching Secondary, said that he had found it strange that the SSA had cleared Mr Ang of the allegations, but "sacked him from the association".
Said Mr Tan: "One wonders what this 'unbecoming conduct' was. It would be good if they could clarify (what constitutes such unbecoming conduct)."
