Tanjong Rhu (The Casuarina Cove) (Page 2)
TANJONG RHU is a fictional account of a true story. Night falls in Singapore. Men walk cautiously through the forest, they are horny and out prowling for sex. Two young men meet at the beach and converse, and just a few frames later one of them confesses his lifestyle under police interrogation. He had fallen into a police schemed trap in the cruising area along the beautiful bay.
In September 1993 twelve men were in fact convicted in similar undercover operations where policemen pretended to be gay men. Some of the accused were incarcerated for several months, and their names, age, and profession were published in the leading national newspapers as a police scare tactic.
