It has been a harrowing Deepavali weekend for the man at the centre of a condominium parking dispute.

A video circulated on social media showed the resident in a dispute with two security officers at Eight Riversuites condominium in Boon Keng/ Whampoa area, sparked by a rule that visitors of the resident must pay S$10 to use the car park.

The man started spewing vulgarities at the security personnel at the condominium, including the now infamous line, "I buy your f*cking property for $1.5 million".

After a back-and-forth between the man and the security personnel, the video concluded with the man getting into his visitor's vehicle and driving into one of the car park lots available.

Received more than "200 threatening calls since morning"

A reader shared with Mothership a comment left by the man on the closed Facebook group of Eight Riversuites Resident Singapore.

The man's Facebook comment in full read:

"The security was bullying my visitor and questioning what time they are going to leave.

In what capacity the security can decide on what time my visitor should leave. He was not allowing my visitor to enter when the time of entry was 10:30 pm and not even 11.

When I went down I asked the security to give me the receipt and I will deal with the management but he insisted to pay.

Again in what capacity he must ask me to pay when I myself dosnt (sic) know that time my visitor would leave.

The security was smart to take a video and share it in all social media forums. I have received more that (sic) 200 threatening calls since morning and they have also shared my unit number. I am threatned (sic) by the same security (sic) which (sic) are supposed to protect me.

There goes my Deepavali and thanks to this estate."

Besides this screen shot, Mothership has received a link to a recording of a prank call made to the man.

The recording revealed the prank caller scolding and insulting the man with vulgarities and racist remarks.

The man's personal phone number has been made public as it was captured in the video posted online, which subsequently went viral as it showed the condominium resident repeatedly berating the security staff.

It has not been confirmed who or how the video ended up being circulated online.

Mothership understands that a police report has been made.

Doxxed by netizens on social media & forums

Hardwarezone forum users have created several discussion threads on the man, with many identifying his workplace, and contact details.

Many commenters have also left hundreds of negative and critical comments on the Facebook page of his purported workplace, which is an investment bank in Singapore.

By doing so, it is likely that netizens are committing the offence of doxxing the man.

Doxxed criminalised under amendments to Protection from Harassment Act

Doxxing is being criminalised under the proposed changes to the Protection from Harassment Act (POHA).

The changes were tabled in Parliament earlier this year in April.

Doxxing involves the publishing of someone’s personal information with the intention to harass.

The information could be photos, contact numbers or employment details.

Perpetrators of “doxxing” could face a fine of up to S$5,000 or a jail term of up to six months if the intention was to cause harassment, or 12 months if they intended to cause fear or provoke violence.

Mothership has also reached out to the man for comment.
