4 schizophrenic men acquitted of murder or attempted murder confined further after review read full article at worldnews365.me










TUNG SIEW MENG

Tung attacked his mother with a hammer in March 2001, after defaulting from his treatment for schizophrenia. He said he heard a spirit telling him that his mother was a witch and went to his mother’s room with a hammer.

He hit her while she was lying on the bed and killed her. He was charged with murder and found to have committed the act but was acquitted on the basis of having an unsound mind. He was ordered to be detained in IMH.

State Counsel Ho Lian-Yi said Tung has a long history of schizophrenia that has been linked to violence.

He is not currently on a psychotic relapse, but this is because he is on oral psychotic medication that his doctor said is “only barely containing his psychotic symptoms”.

Tung refuses to accept anti-psychotic injections and refuses all clinical procedures, including blood tests, said Mr Ho.

He continues to believe that his family uses witchcraft and is evil because of this, and has also made reference to a “hit list”.

A medical report states that he still has persecutory delusions and limited insight into his condition. There is also a high risk of injury to others if he is released.

While in IMH, he continued to manifest violent and aggressive behaviour, attempting to hit an employee in 2010 and punching other patients over the years, the court heard.

Tung, who was attending the hearing via Zoom, reacted angrily when he heard this.

Most recently in December 2020, Tung purportedly punched another patient who had punched him a few days before, said Mr Ho. In May 2022, he reportedly pushed a patient off a chair and challenged a patient to a fight in September 2022.

Tung is also resistant to treatment and medical investigations, saying there is no such thing as mental illness, that medications are of no use and that he does not have a psychiatric condition.

If left to his own devices, Tung is most likely to default on his treatment. There might be a re-emergence of psychotic symptoms and possible psychotic-driven violence, said Mr Ho.

When asked if he had anything to say, Tung said he had “many things to say”. He claimed his mother was hit by an unknown weapon which he did not have and rambled about the incidents of violence at IMH.

He claimed another patient had sat in his chair and made it “very hot” and that he had not challenged another patient to fight – it was the patient who used vulgar language against him.

After the judge ordered him to be confined for another 12 months, Tung erupted: “You are unfair, you are lying, you are not justice, you are obstructing justice from heaven, you will die one day, God will kill you.”

WONG KWOK WAH

Wong was tried in the High Court in 1991 for a charge of murdering his elderly neighbour.

The court found that he had committed the act causing death, but acquitted him on the basis of an unsound mind.

He was kept in safe custody in Woodbridge Hospital – now called IMH – and transferred subsequently to Changi Prison Hospital due to his “unmanageable behaviour”, said State Counsel Du Xuan.

After Changi Prison Hospital was closed, he was transferred to his current place of confinement at Changi Prison Complex.

Wong was diagnosed with schizophrenia and antisocial personality disorder and is said to exhibit impulsive behaviour, self-harm and violent outbursts.

According to a 1988 psychiatric report, he has been mentally unwell since his secondary school days. He developed paranoid ideas against his family and once assaulted his brother with a knife for unknown reasons.

Between 1984 and 1988, he was admitted to Woodbridge Hospital on five occasions. However, there was a poor prognosis for his condition as he was not compliant with medication after being discharged.

In September 1988, Wong killed his neighbour by fracturing his skull with a blunt blow.

Evidence at trial stated that he believed the deceased was responsible for the voices he heard, and he also heard a voice commanding him to kill the deceased. He could not resist the voice as the command was repeated, said Ms Du.

The risk of injury to himself and others if he is released is high based on four points, she said.

First, his psychosis remains untreated as he persistently refuses anti-psychotic medication. 

Second, he continues to have poor insight into his mental health issues, maintaining that he does not suffer from mental illness. He is “minimally participative” in programmes at his current place of confinement, the court heard.

Third, Wong has a history of psychosis-driven violence. While he was confined, he committed 34 disciplinary infractions between 2003 and 2018 – some of these involving assaults on other inmates and many of them involving harm to himself. There were no infractions in the past three years, but it is likely because he was housed in a single cell.

Fourth, Wong is unlikely to integrate well into mainstream society, because of his inability to live with others, the court was told. He declines to participate in group activities and refuses to move into a three-man cell.

Wong’s brother did not want to attend the hearing but sent an email to the Attorney-General’s Chambers.

In the email, he requested that his brother be transferred to IMH for further treatment. He feels that Wong’s mental state will deteriorate, as “nobody can be sane after being confined for so long in a restricted place”.

He said that if his brother is at IMH, he can buy his brother his favourite food and this will lift his spirits.

When Wong was asked if he had anything to say, he went into a rant detailing supposed persecution from his doctor and how “people make war with me”.

He talked about how he exercises every day but was not allowed to at IMH and claimed he was blacklisted from IMH. He said he is known as “the great and famous Wong Kwok Wah, the living legend”.

“I am a very famous man in Woodbridge,” he said.

After hearing that he would be confined at Changi Prison Complex for another year, he said he wanted to go back to IMH and claimed to have been incarcerated for “a record-breaking 35 years”.
