Ex-recruiter could face jail in Singapore after breaking commuter’s nose

A British former recruiter could face jail in Singapore after an attack on a fellow commuter that left him with a broken nose.

The Straits Times reports that Benjamin John Holman, who was a senior consultant in financial services contract recruiting for Robert Walters in Singapore, admitted to punching Jason Ow Zhi Min in February last year, after the latter bumped into him at a railway station.

Holman lost his job as a result of the incident, and yesterday his lawyer pleaded for a fine or a short jail term. However, the deputy public prosecutor had earlier urged the district judge to jail him for at least eight months.

Holman will be back in court on 11 May.
