The illegal sale can have worrying consequences. Last week, a truckload of used camouflage uniforms with SAF tags on them was seized from suspected smugglers in Batam, by the Indonesian navy.
In a statement dated Nov 11, SAF’s Chief Supply Officer, Colonel Terry Tan, said servicemen are not allowed to sell any items of army equipment issued to them, and those caught doing so will face disciplinary action,
“Only authorised vendors are allowed to sell or dispose of army uniforms,” he added.
