The Ministry of Defence would like to response to the article and comments that
appeared inThe Sun dated 28 September 2010 entitled “Dress Code Knees Invite” and “Skirting The Issue”.
The Ministry welcomes all feedback and comments in order to improve the quality of our services and therefore, we would like to extend our apology to The Sun’s reporter , Miss Karen Arukesamy for not allowing her to enter the premise to cover the launching of the National Service Alumni Secretariat organized by the National Service Training Department. We would like to emphasize that MinDef have its own standard dress code procedures to those who wants to enter the premise. We assumed this is Miss Karen’s first time visit to MinDef and perhaps she is not aware of the current procedures.
For frequent visitors, they are aware of this standard procedures and had no
complaints in following to the procedures.
